Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Name Baby Boy Saint West


UPDATE: Kim and Kanye named their baby Saint West, they confirmed via Kim’s app. At the time of posting, the name was a world-wide trending topic on Twitter. Carry on.

The story below was originally published Dec. 5 at 9:10 a.m. PST:

Kanye West’s new album might arrive a little later than expected.

The rap giant welcomes a baby boy with wife Kim Kardashian on Saturday (Dec. 5). Kim Tweeted a link to her official website confirming the news, adding she and baby are ok.

“KANYE AND I WELCOME OUR BABY BOY!,” the message read. “Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well.”

On Friday, Kim Tweeted a photo of her pregnant belly, saying “Ready whenever you are lol.”

The reality TV star ran into a few speed bumps along the way, most recently undergoing a procedure called ECV (External Cephalic Version, or a Version) to “manually turn the baby from a breech position to a head-down position,” she revealed in a Dec. 1 blog post.

“They gave me an IV with medication to relax my uterus, and then three doctors attempted to work together to turn the baby,” she continued. “There was a risk that my water might break or the baby’s heart rate could drop—in which case, an emergency C-section would then take place. I went in with my sisters and my husband. I was prepared for it all!”

“They don’t give you any pain medication, and let me tell you: This was soooooo painful,” Kim wrote. “Probably more painful than childbirth. BUT it worked!!!”

Kim and Kanye have yet to reveal the baby’s name, but we imagine it’s something extravagant.

Congrats Kimye! Leave them a note in Exhale!
