Kim Kardashian and Kanye West released the name of their baby boy last night- and now, we know the meaning behind it.
The couple had kept schtum since their son was born at the weekend, but it’s now been confirmed that the little one is called… *drum roll* Saint West.
Kim told fans on her website, simply writing: ‘Saint West. 12.05.15. 8 Pounds, 1 Ounce.’
So what’s the reasoning behind such an, ahem, unusual moniker? Well, a source has told E News!: ‘Saint was chosen because Kim and Kanye feel this child is truly ‘a blessing’ in their lives ‘because she had such a difficult pregnancy.’
It doesn’t appear as though Saint has a middle name, despite the fact that multiple sources had previously said they may have landed on a very personal one.
Kim was apparently overheard in the hospital explaining that they had chosen Robert – after Kim’s late father. Aw.
The 35-year-old gave birth on Saturday morning, with her and Kanye’s happy news being quickly announced on Kim’s website, with a photo of her and Kanye holding hands being posted alongside a sweet celebratory caption.
‘KANYE AND I WELCOME OUR BABY BOY!’ it read. ‘Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well.’
Sister Kourtney showed her congratulations on Twitter that same day by posting: ‘Baby’s breath.’ with a blue heart emoji.
Khloe then hinted that she’d been to visit Kim’a baby, tweeting that she knew ‘these hospital walls way too well’ after her recent stint supporting ex husband Lamar Odom.
‘I know these hospital halls way too well. Hoping [sic] from one room to another’, she wrote on Saturday.
We bet Kim’s feeling hugely relieved to have finally given birth, having openly confessed about how tough her second pregnancy had been.
Just last night, the reality TV star posted an Instagram shot of her huge bump, writing: ‘Ready whenever you are lol.’
Kim had also been explaining the toll her baby had taken on her body, admitting earliet this week: ‘My cankles are out of control.’ LOL.
Sending big love and congratulations to Kim, Kanye and the baby. We can’t wait for the first picture!
