The speculation of the name of the baby boy born to Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West has hit an all-time high now that Kim delivered a baby boy on Saturday, December 5. According to Hollywood Life, the middle name of Kim and Kanye’s new baby boy will be Robert, in homage of Kim’s late father, Robert Kardashian. Robert grew to fame as an attorney with a high profile in the O. J. Simpson murder trial. Kim’s younger brother was named after Robert, and there’s speculation that Kardashian would name her baby Robert — at least his middle name — as a way to not only honor her father but to help draw her younger brother out of hiding.
While TMZ reported on the birth of the Kardashian-West baby boy, the publication didn’t report the baby’s name — that’s if Kim and Kanye have even picked a name for their baby boy yet.
Previous speculation that Kim and Kanye would name their baby boy Easton West was disputed. Sticking close to Kim’s website will probably provide the announcement of her baby boy’s name — either through that website or her social media accounts. Or perhaps KanyeWest.com or his social media websites, although Kanye doesn’t seem to update Twitter as often as Kim.
Some theorize, by reading Kanye’s old rap lyrics about the West baby boy being forced to be a Republican who never looks for love in strip clubs, that Kanye might name his baby boy Kanye West. As reported by the Inquisitr, that’s all speculation — but as much as Kanye is teased for loving Kanye, one wouldn’t be surprised if North’s baby brother ends up with the moniker Kanye West, Jr.
As reported by Hollywood Life, however, an exclusive source reportedly told the publication that no matter what name Kim and Kanye choose for their baby boy’s first name, the little boy’s middle name will allegedly be Robert.
“Kim Kardashian, 35, gave birth to her second child, a son, on Saturday, December 5, and gave him a very special middle name. Kim and husband Kanye West, 38, have decided that their child’s middle name will be Robert, after Kim’s father, the late Robert Kardashian.”
Whether named after Kim’s late father Robert or not, the new baby boy West is receiving plenty of welcome to the world messages from the Kardashian and Jenner families and others on social media, reports Yahoo!.
“Kim and Kanye haven’t revealed what they named their son just yet — he’s only a few hours old, after all! But a source has EXCLUSIVELY revealed to us the baby’s middle name! By giving him the middle name Robert, they’re making sure that Kim’s father has a special place in their child’s heart, even if he never had the chance to meet his grandfather. We’re dying to know what Kim and Kanye picked for baby West’s first name! Plus, Kim’s brother, Rob Kardashian, was also named for their father.”
Kim’s baby may have arrived earlier than expected, but the baby boy Kardashian-West is receiving a big welcome. And Kim’s post-baby body will likely continue to be compared to Coco Austin’s body — especially since photos of Coco posted to Instagram only four days after she gave birth show her with a tiny waist once more.
Khloe Kardashian showed up to see her new nephew, reported TMZ.
Kourtney Kardashian named her sons Mason Dash Disick and Reign Aston Disick — so it’s not like the “Robert” middle name wasn’t available to name the Kardashian-West baby boy. Even if Kourtney had named her children with the Robert middle name, it wouldn’t have been overstepping too many boundaries for Kim to do the same with her baby boy. Khloe is yet to have children — but would artists like Kim and Kanye go with such a traditional name for the baby boy — even if it’s just his middle name? In a world where unique celebrity baby names run rampant, time, and social media, will eventually reveal the full name of the new baby boy born to Kanye and Kim.
