Kim and Kanye name third child Chicago West


The couple, who already have two children together, have named their second daughter Chicago, which 37-year-old Kim announced Friday (Jan. 19) on her app.

Kardashian made the initial name announcement on her website, simply sharing the words "Chicago West" along with her daughter's birth statistics.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have named their newborn daughter Chicago West, after the United States city where the rapper was raised.

One Twitter user wrote: "There are two kinds of people in the world - those who agree Chicago West is a chic name and those who are wrong".

Kim Kardashian's third child was born at 12:47 a.m. on January 15, 2018- and fans everywhere were overjoyed.

Kim and Kanye hired a surrogate mother to carry their third child after the beauty suffered complications whilst pregnant with four-year-old North and two-year-old Saint. They think Chi West has a really sophisticated sound to it, and they also thought it went well with North and Saint.

Armed robbers forced their way into a private Paris residence early Monday, Oct. 3, where Kim Kardashian West was staying and tied her up, police officials said.

Chi is pronounced like shy and it's typically short for Chicago.

It's not the first time Kanye West has expressed his love for his hometown.

She also retweeted a fan who correctly deduced the pronunciation of the newborn's nickname.

Kardashian West said that not carrying the child herself was "so hard", but that the couple had an instant connection with her.

She said: "Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, handsome baby girl".

'North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister'.
