Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed a baby boy early Saturday, and it didn’t take long before Kim made sure that her Keeping Up with the Kardashians fans had all the darling details. A photo of Kanye holding her hand along with the news that it was a baby boy quickly hit the internet, reported E! News.
As for the baby’s name?
“There’s no name,” a family source revealed to E! News.
But there were plenty of visitors to see Kim, Kanye, and their baby boy at the hospital. Kris Jenner was among them.
“KANYE AND I WELCOME OUR BABY BOY!” proclaimed the birth announcement on Kim’s website and app. “Mother and son are doing well.”
At one point, concern had been raised that Kardashian would have to undergo a C-section. The insider revealed that she did not have to opt for that procedure, however, and Kim and Kanye’s baby boy was born naturally.
“I didn’t know that I was going to be so open with [my fertility challenges],” Kardashian admitted at one point. “But meeting people at my fertility doctor’s office who are going through the same things I’m going through, I thought, ‘Why not share my story?’ It’s been really emotional.”
Kim had been worried about the possibility of pregnancy complications, revealing that a physician even told her that she should have a surrogate rather than go through a second pregnancy.
“One doctor told me I would need my uterus removed after I had another baby—I could only have one more. One was like, ‘You should get a surrogate.’ The other one was like, ‘Oh, no, you’ll be fine.’ Then I called my doctor, and he’s like, ‘You know what? I believe—we’ll get through it,'” Kim recalled.
Now that she and Kanye have the baby boy, it appears that her doctor was right.
As for what to name their son, Kim and Kanye may take as long as a week to name their baby boy, reported People.
That assessment is based on the fact that it took about that long before they chose North for their now-2-year-old daughter. In addition, Kardashian shared with People that she had not yet chosen a name just prior to having her son.
“It’s like the last thing Kanye and I did when North was born,” recalled Kim. “We didn’t name her for like seven days. I feel like it will just come to us.”
As for Kanye’s views, West has not shared any news about the name he wants for the baby boy, an insider revealed to People.
“He never said anything about the name. Even if they had one picked out, he wasn’t going to share it. He doesn’t believe in telling anyone the name until the baby is born.”
It wasn’t just Kim, Kanye, and their new baby boy at the hospital. Family flocked to visit the trio. During her labor, Kourtney Kardashian comforted Kim and provided extra support after having gone through the birth of her own three children.
Kim and Kanye actually don’t need to come up with a name for their son, because Twitter already named the baby boy, reported CNN.
Given that Kardashian and West chose North West for their daughter, the Twitterverse enjoyed proposing directional names for their second child. Kim and Kanye were urged to choose Easton West for their baby boy during one Twitter trend, for example.
Some viewed the choice of Easton West as a joke.
Others, however, thought that as the ideal match for North West’s brother, it was adorable.
In addition, as the Inquisitr reported, Kardashian previously revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that she thinks the name Easton West is cute.
“I do like the name Easton. Easton West,” said Kim thoughtfully during her interview with Ellen.
However, there’s a catch when it comes to what Kanye thinks of that name for that baby boy.
“I don’t think my husband likes that name, but I do like it,” admitted Kardashian.
As for the baby photos that everyone wants to see? While plenty of paparazzi would love to shoot the first pics, Kim and Kanye have some different ideas about how to showcase their baby boy’s photos, a source told Hollywood Life.
“They have been approached by magazines to take pictures with the baby. E! has asked for the reveal to be on the show. And [Kim and Kanye] also are thinking about putting it on their websites on Christmas as a thank you to fans and also a way to drive subscriptions to their sites. That is actually the option that has been mostly talked about, and the most likely thing to happen,” predicted the insider.
