Fact: on Saturday, June 15, Kim Kardashian and her beau Kanye West welcomed a baby Gemini at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Fact: the pair named her Kaidence Georgia Donda West in a heartfelt tribute to their late parents Donda West and Robert Kardashian… or is it? According to TMZ, initial reports of the music-inspired moniker have turned out to be false. Sources at the webloid claim they’ve seen the newborn’s birth certificate and that her parents took a more directional approach in baby-naming. Allow us to introduce… North West.
Celebrity gossip site Mediatakeout initially sourced an anonymous nurse who allegedly tended to Kardashian when she delivered her firstborn; since, the site has updated its story to coincide with the naming news from TMZ. If it turns out the newborn was named North, it would be another mark in the world of unique—and sometimes unusual—celebrity baby names. You have Uma Thurman who named her daughter Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson; Reese Witherspoon who named her son after her childhood home, Tennessee; and Goop creator Gwyneth Paltrow who opted for Apple when naming her daughter with Chris Martin. And we can’t forget North’s future BFF Blue Ivy—imagine them making waves in Calabasas or playing in the Carter’s million-dollar nursery in Barclays! An adorable and stylish pair they’ll be.
Understandably so, we haven’t heard a peep from West, Kardashian (not even on Twitter), or her famous family on their latest addition’s name, but we’re happy to hear that mom and daughter are doing just fine. Now, if we could only get a photo.
