Yep, it's true! Five days after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed a baby girl, a source close to the reality star, 32, confirms to Us Weekly that the bundle of joy has been named, as long rumored, North West. The source adds that the "birth certificate is out," and that the little girl, born five weeks early, has no middle name.

The first child for Kardashian and the rapper, 35, already has a nickname, the source adds: "They will call her Nori for short."

Indeed, midday on Thursday, a second insider told Us that rumors of the couple's baby being named with a "K" a la her mom, aunts Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, Kylie and Kendall Jenner and grandmother Kris Jenner, were false. (One prevalent rumor suggested that the baby was named Kaidence Donda West, taking her middle name from West's late mother Dr. Donda West.)
