Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their new son Psalm. The boy was born last Friday. Kim did not carry the child herself: it is the second sprout of the reality star and rapper who was born with a surrogate mother. Due to serious complications during her first two pregnancies, Kim was advised against becoming pregnant again.
The name is already a surprise. A lot of fans thought that the baby would be called Bear. The theory was mainly based on an emoji of a teddy bear that Kim placed in a number of photos of her baby shower last week.
In addition, the fans thought the name was a reference to the Chicago Bears, the rugby team from Kanye’s hometown. Last year the couple already honored the rapper’s origins with a baby name: their youngest daughter is called Chicago.
Kim herself hinted at the name Rob, after her father Robert, who died in 2003. In the talk show of Jimmy Kimmel, she said a few months ago that she had approval from her brother Rob, who is also named after their father. But, the reality star said, the decision would only be made once the baby arrived. Fans speculated that Don, mother Donda, who died after Kanye, was also a contender.
Kim and Kanye got married in 2014. Together they already have daughter North (5), son Saint (3) and daughter Chicago (1).
