Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their baby boy to the world, along with the rest of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan, friends, and paparazzi. As Kim and Kanye received congratulations from the family, the baby got his own name created by Twitter, reported Us Weekly.
Welcome to Easton West, proclaimed the Twitterverse to Kim and Kanye’s baby boy. And although it might seem uber-brilliant of social media to come up with the ideal match to Kim and Kanye’s daughter North West, Twitter doesn’t get all the credit.
While social media is still using Easton West as a trending topic, Kim revealed that she had a fondness for the name Easton during an autumn conversation with Ellen DeGeneres.
“I do like the name Easton. Easton West,” said Kardashian thoughtfully. “I don’t think my husband likes that name, but I do like it.”
“I don’t think we’ll go another direction. It’s definitely not South, every time someone says South, I just want to roll my eyes,” joked Kim.
But Twitter liked the idea of different directions for Kardashian’s and Kanye’s baby boy.
“I love that name,” said one fan.
“All they’re missing is South,” pointed out another.
But not everyone was so complimentary.
While social media argues over names for the newest member of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan, the family focused on celebrating online and congratulating Kim and Kanye about their new baby boy, reported Yahoo News.
Kourtney Kardashian shared the sweetest post, showing praying hands and hearts.
In contrast, Khloe Kardashian shared that she’s had enough of hospital rooms. After spending weeks by the side of her estranged husband Lamar Odom, Khloe posted a half-hearted congratulations on social media.
“I know these hospital halls way too well,” posted Khloe. “[Hopping] from one room to another.”
In October, Lamar was discovered unconscious at a brothel in Nevada. Odom suffered organ failure, a heart attack, and strokes, and since has been hospitalized in Los Angeles. In addition to Khloe, the Kardashian family offered support, and Kim changed the date of her baby shower.
Although his last name is neither Kardashian nor Jenner, Ryan Seacrest considers himself a member of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan. In that role, the close family friend headed to Twitter to express his own sentiments and well wishes for Kim, Kanye, and the baby.
To make the announcement official, Kim and Kanye used Kardashian’s app to share their new baby joy.
“Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West announce the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well.”
Although the 35-year-old initially was expecting her second child on Christmas, Kim had experienced health problems throughout her pregnancy. As a result, her 38-year-old husband and 2-year-old daughter got to welcome the baby boy as an early Christmas present.
