It's no secret that we're in the midst of the Kardashian Baby Boom. Up to three new little bundles of joy are on the way, joining the walking brand and empire that is the family. And while Khloe recently snagged the spotlight after announcing her first pregnancy on social media, the ball is once again back in Kim's court. News recently broke that her third child has arrived, a little baby girl. Baby #3 comes to Kim and her husband Kanye West via surrogacy, and the family seems to be enjoying their privacy in the wake of her arrival. But information is coming, and now we know the baby's name.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their new baby girl Chicago West. This news comes to us from Kim Kardashian's official website, the same place that announced Chicago's arrival just days ago. While no images or much information has accompanies the post, it simply reads her name, alongside with the baby's logistics. Chicago was born January 15, 2018 at12:47am weighing 7lbs 6oz.
Chicago's name continues the Kardashian/West family's tradition of monosyllabic gender neutral names which typically used. Chicago is preceded by her big sister in four year old North and two year old brother Saint. The family has yet to share any photos of the baby girl, and will likely be waiting a few months before they personally reveal the new bundle of joy. Kim and Kanye reportedly take umbrage with the idea of selling the exclusive photos to news outlets, and will instead be handling it independently in the coming months.
It's no doubt a relief to have baby Chicago at home for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Kim has been vocal about the unique complications and challenges that come with having a child through surrogacy, especially on the recent episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And while the couple's wealth is part of the reason why they're able to have this third child, their platform does seem to be shedding light on alternative planning.
With Chicago having safely arrived at home with her siblings and parents, the next Kardashian who will be having a baby appears to be Khloe. She recently announced her first pregnancy with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, after months of speculation by the fans. Khloe had previously been hiding from the public eye, and fans quickly took notice and speculated that she might be expecting.
And something similar is happening for Kylie Jenner. Like Khloe, Kylie became unexpectedly absent from any appearances, including her social media. Fans have drawn conclusions that Kylie might be pregnant, and have been dissecting every Instagram post for clues. Khloe was also recently interrogated to no avail by Ellen Degeneres, pivoting through a series of questions about her half sister's rumored pregnancy.
Congratulations to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on welcoming baby Chicago into the world.
