Say this about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West:
They are nothing if not reliable.
One week after welcoming their fourth child (via surrogate), the world famous couple has announced the little boy’s name…
… and it may not be Bear, as some social media users had suspected, but it is highly unusual.
Are you ready, readers?
Are you ready to say hello to PSALM WEST?!?
Kardashian revealed her fourth child’s name on Twitter and Instagram this afternoon, several days after simply telling the world that “he’s here and he’s perfect.”
She did so in form of a text conversation with her husband, as you can see below:
“Beautiful Mother’s Day with the arrival of our fourth child. We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need,” West wrote, to which Kim simply wrote “Psalm West.”
And now this question is answered.
Psalm joins siblings North, Saint and Chicago in a family full of kids whose names are also nouns.
That’s not a statement of judgment, it’s just a fact.
Prior to this announcement, folks had started to believe that child number-four would be named “Bear” because Kim had included a bear emoji along with photos from her recent baby shower.
The mother of four followed her baby name reveal a few minutes later with an update on the week-old, adding simply:
“He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her.”
Psalm was born via surrogate on May 9, 2019. He siblings are aged five, three and 16 months.
In April, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star said she was considering naming her son after her brother, Rob Kardashian.
“But then it’s like, North, Saint, Chicago, Rob,” Kim told Jimmy Kimmel at the time while a guest on his talk show.
So do we.
But Kim is right: Once you’ve gone with North, Saint and Chicago, you really have no choice but to follow those up with something like… Psalm.
As of right now, we don’t believe the child has a middle name.
We actually don’t think any of Kim’s kids have a middle name.
Will any siblings join this ever-growing immediate family? It doesn’t sound that way.
“Kim and Kanye have known for awhile and are very excited. They had one male embryo left and are thrilled it has worked out,” a source previously told E! News, adding back then:
“Kim always wanted four kids and having two boys and two girls feels perfect.
“They were very happy with the entire experience the first time and are so grateful to have one more baby.”
As for how she and Kanye arrived at the name Psalm?
Kim has not yet said.
However, she did try to explain the process to Kimmel a short while back:
“We all weigh in. I definitely take a family survey, but it’s usually after the baby’s born and we’re trying to figure out what the baby looks like.
“I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel that it really connects with me.”
So we guess this one looks like a Psalm, huh? Interesting.
The question now: Where should we rank this name against the other unusual ones chosen by Kim and her loved ones?
