UPDATE: We finally know the baby name for Kim and Kanye's third child.
On Wednesday, reality star Kim Kardashian had people talking after sharing a cryptic Instagram of a Louis Vuitton monogram.
Many speculated that she was hinting that her baby’s name could be inspired by the famed designer. Some even put out guesses like “Elle V West,” “LV West” and “Louis West.”
Kardashian’s husband Kanye West is also a fan of the brand, giving shout-outs in his songs like “Stronger,” “Runaway Love,” “Gold Digger,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” “The Glory” and “Pinocchio Story.”
Kim’s post could have been honoring Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton artistic director for menswear, who is stepping down after seven years.
On the same day, TMZ cameras caught up with Kanye, who said they were still deciding on baby names. When a photog suggested his mom’s name Donda, he replied, “That’s fire.”
A source recently told People magazine, “They still don’t have a name. They’ve been thinking about it for months and they want to make sure it’s right.”
On Monday, Kim’s gestational carrier gave birth to a baby girl who weighed 7 lbs. 6 oz. Along with explaining the difference between a surrogate and a gestational carrier (a gestational surrogate carries a baby conceived using the intended mother's egg, while a traditional surrogate carries a baby using her own egg), Kim shared on her website, “Our gestational carrier gave us the greatest gift one could give. The connection with our baby came instantly and it's as if she was with us the whole time. Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true. We are so excited to finally welcome home our baby girl.”
Aside from showing love to her gestational carrier, she revealed why the decision was tough for her. Kim explained, “People assume it’s better because you don’t have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint.”
