  Chicago! Chicago! It’s a city that’s exciting!  it’s a city that’s inviting! It’s a city for woman just like me! Those lyrics you just read are the name of the third and final child (for now) of the famous couple, Kimye (Kim Kardashian, 37 and Kanye West, 40 ). That’s right ladies and gentlemen Chicago West is the name of Kim and rapper, Kanye West’s baby girl. Born on January 15 2018 via surrogate weighing in at 7 Ibs. 6 oz. in Los Angeles, California.

      Ever since the name Chicago was revealed via kim’s app, fans have been speculating to why Kim and Kanye would have decided to have name their child after a city. The reason to this unusual but unique name is that’s the city to where Kanye West grew up in. So this shows that her name actually has a meaning behind it and not just another ridiculous celebrity name. The enormous family has already decided on a nickname for the newcomer. Sister, Khloe Kardashian who also has a bun cooking in the oven with Tristan Thompson, a basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers. As if the family couldn’t already get any bigger, revealed via twitter that her nickname is “Chi” pronounced as “shy.” Kim also said that even North, the oldest was already calling her unborn sister “Chi.”

     “I think that the name is very original, and people don’t give Kim enough credit because of the name being so different, just like all of her other babies names and it’s original just like Kim herself,” said Myles Buchanan (‘19).

     Kim decided to do her pregnancy through surrogate because of her history of placenta accreta in both of her previous pregnancies, with four year old North West and two year old Saint West. Placenta accreta, which is a serious pregnancy condition is a condition that occurs when blood vessels and other parts of the placenta grow too deeply into the uterine wall after childbirth. So the family decided it was best to hire a surrogate. It was just their luck when they found the perfect person for it. Sources have said that surrogate was pregnant in September, then Kim herself revealing it to the world later during the month. She later disclosed the sex of her baby in November.

     “I think the name was interesting and Kim has a cool way of naming her kids original names. The name Chicago also reminds me of the show Victorious when Trina did that play about a women in Chicago,” said Mariana Cardoso (‘19).

     Fans have been wondering if Kylie Jenner, Kim’s sister has been the one carrying Kimye’s new child because of how M.I.A. she’s been on social media and from the public in general. It was first just a joke but now it turned into a rumour. But Kim’s momager, 62 year old Kris Jenner offered to be the surrogate for her next grandchild but the couple decided not to. The name of surrogate has not been released yet and Kim has tried to keep any information about her and her daughter private. The unknown surrogate has been a surrogate before and Kim said that it should be someone who she’s close to and has a bond with, which is why fans think it would be 20 year old sister Kylie. But Kim herself revealed that the surrogate was not invited to Kim’s baby shower, Which Kylie was at  and Kim wanted the celebrate the baby itself.

     Some reason why fans would think Kylie was the surrogate was because recently all of the Kardashian sisters did a photoshoot  ad with Calvin Klein and in the photos the sisters uploaded to social media Kylie seems to be the only sister to be covered with a blanket. Fans think to say she was trying to hide the baby bump. The real surrogate according to TMZ is African American and is a mom of two just like Kim is.

     The only thing we can do right now is to wait for any updates from any of the family members to see if they have any more new information they would like to share with us.
