Kim and Kanye have been all over headlines this week after Kim gave birth to the couple’s baby girl a month early right before Father’s Day. Now, the name has been released, and in a move that will surprise no one, it starts with a K.
Kaidence Donda West was born on Saturday and was premature, so chances are good that she and mom will have a little stay in the hospital. For now, the family is mostly keeping quiet about the birth and there have been no photos released, but word is getting around about the name. Donda was Kanye’s mother’s name, but it’s not known where the couple came up with Kaidence. Rumor had it that Kim initially wanted her daughter’s name to be North, which, if she’s given her father’s surname, would make her North West. It’s probably best, for her sake, that the idea was shot down. Plus, it didn’t fit the “K” theme.
Friend of the family Larsa Pippen said Kanye hasn’t left Kim’s side and has put plans for promoting his new album on hold for the moment so he can be with Kim and the baby.
‘He’s so cute. He doesn’t leave the room,’ she told E! News
West has been hard at work on his latest project, “Yeesus”, and released a promotional video this week starring Kim’s sister’s man, Scott Disick. Disick plays the “American Psycho” character Patrick Bateman in the short, which was originally written by author Bret Easton Ellis.
Kanye won’t be seen much on the next season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”; the rapper has famously said he doesn’t want his daughter to be put in that spotlight, either, so it’s hard to say how much media attention they’ll allow the baby to get.
Kim’s stepdad, Bruce Jenner, said Kanye hasn’t been around too much, but that could be because he’s been busy working on the album.
“Actually, I have only met him once,” Bruce said. “He’s never … he’s not around,” he said, “He was in Paris the whole time writing, and he just hasn’t been around.”
