Just like that, the Kardashian-West clan has expanded once again! On Thursday, May 9th, A-listers Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their fourth child to their growing, and ever-so-glam family. The fourth member, born at six pounds and nine ounces, was introduced via surrogate after mother Kim began experiencing problems with her first two pregnancies. If our math is correct, this would, therefore, be the star’s second birth-by-surrogate.
So, how did it all begin? Being the social media guru she is, Kim quickly took to Twitter to reveal to fans that “He’s here and he’s perfect!” As if that wasn’t enough, the famous pair decided to keep fans on the edge of their seats, waiting an entire week to reveal the name of their latest bundle of joy. The suspense was killing us!
The Name Game
What a grueling seven days this was! As a way to keep occupied over the enduring wait, fans everywhere put their detective caps on. People all over the globe began speculating what they thought the latest Kardashian-West baby would be named. What was the most likely guess? Bear. This assumption came quickly after the mother-of-four posted a series of baby shower photos on Twitter, captioned with a teddy-bear emoji.
So, were the assumptions correct? As much as the name ‘Bear’ has an adorable ring to it, the Kardashian-West parents went down a slightly more biblical route. Heading over to the socialite’s Twitter once again, the name was revealed Friday 17th May. Introducing you all to baby, “Psalm West.”
What’s in a Name?
Creds to Kim and Kanye for thinking up such an original name. Given their past track record of naming children (North, Saint, and Chicago) we have to say, we wouldn’t expect anything less from them! What we’re all dying to know now is, where did the inspiration for ‘Psalm’ stem from? It’s not exactly something you just come across in the baby-naming catalog.
While an official explanation to the couple’s naming process remains unclear, over the years, these two celebrities have made their Christian faith a secret to no one. Father, Kanye, has been reported to hold his own Sunday services at home since the beginning of the year, even deciding to host one at this year’s Coachella festival. Given that a ‘psalm’ is known as a sacred hymn used during worship, we can only assume the pair made this naming decision to keep the faith.
Magical Mother’s Day
Most of you should be aware that the States recently celebrated Mother’s Day last Sunday, 12th May – if not, you have a lot of explaining to do! One mother who enjoyed spending time with the best gift of all was none other than Kim Kardashian. The 38-year-old had the best time experiencing her first Mother’s Day as a mother-of-four. We can only imagine how amazing that must have felt!
If you know anything about Kim Kardashian, you’ll know the star doesn’t like to miss out on any opportunity to share the highlights of her life with the fans. The Twittersphere went into a complete frenzy after the socialite showed the world a message from hubby, Kanye, which read: “Beautiful Mother’s Day…With the arrival of our fourth child…we are blessed beyond measure…we have everything we need.” We can hardly hold back our happy tears!
What Happens Next
After the whirlwind past few days that this couple has experienced, it’s no wonder they now want a little chill time! All the family wants to do at this point is to spend some quality time together. As for the new baby Psalm? It was reported that the pair wanted to “soak it all” up before the newborn even begins growing up, cherishing the first stages of its life.
With such busy schedules, how exactly have the celebrity pair managed to put the time aside for their little ones? It has been reported that Kim K has taken maternity leave, while Kanye has been dipping in and out of work, saving plenty of free time to help out with his four children. What’s more, insiders have reported that older siblings, North and Saint have been doing their bit to welcome baby bro number four into their family, carrying out small tasks set by their A-lister parents on the daily. This truly is a happily ever after story!
