Kim Kardashian, Kanye West opt for odd baby name


Named after Kanye's hometown, their third child is Chicago West.

When Kanye's parents split, he moved to Chicago with his mum, something he spoke about in his track Hey Mama.

Chicago West was born on Tuesday, Jan. 16, but her mother didn't let fans in on her name until Friday, Jan. 19. Kim also told her fans that the name is pronounced as "Shy" and not "Chi". The baby girl - who was born via surrogate on Monday - is called Chicago.

Khloe Kardashian was the first family member to comment on it, writing: "I LOOOOOOOOOOVE her name", in a tweet.

Chicago - where Kanye West was raised - is the name of child No. 3 with Kim Kardashian West.

Three days after the birth, Kim took to her app to reveal that the couple had made a decision to call their newborn daughter Chicago.The reality star shared a picture of the name, captioned with the date and time of the tot's birth, plus her weight - 7lbs, 6oz. The rapper and the reality star chose to use a carrier after Kim suffered pregnancy complications with her two older children.

She suffered from pre-eclampsia and placenta accreta in pregnancies for her daughter North, now 4, and son Saint, 2.

She wrote: "Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it's the easy way out is completely wrong. It's not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I've ever had", she said in statement on her app.
