Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have had quite the ride over the past seven years. Since the pair first got together in April 2012, they have truly built an enviable life and family together. They became engaged in October 2013 (on Kim’s birthday!) and were married in a lavish ceremony in Italy in May 2014.
Kim had always expressed her desire for living the married life and raising children. The couple welcomed their first daughter, North West, in June 2013 and their first son Saint West in December 2015. While carrying both children, she experienced many difficulties throughout the pregnancies, and was very open about sharing her struggles with the public.
After giving birth to Saint, Kardashian was advised by her doctors to not get pregnant again, otherwise she would be placing great risk on her life. However, Kim did not allow this to prevent her from growing her family into the large one she always dreamed of. After finding a suitable surrogate, the couple’s third daughter, Chicago West, was born in January 2018.
After nearly a year, the couple announced that they were once again expecting a child via surrogate, and on May 10th, 2019, their fourth child and second son was born. Although the announcement of his birth took place the day he was born, Kim and Kanye took some time before announcing the name of their fourth child.
After much speculation from the public, they finally have announced the name of their new baby, and it is just as unique as the rest of their children: Psalm West. Kim shared a text message she received from Kanye that read: “Beautiful Mother’s Day. With the arrival of our fourth child. We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need.”
She also shared some insight on who the new baby resembles the most, saying: “He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her.”
Kim has also opened up and said that Psalm is a very calm baby, as were her other kids. Congratulations to the West family!
