Fans are clamoring for hints about what Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have decided to name their newborn daughter, but there's at least one person out there who doesn't want to know — the tot's step-uncle Brody Jenner. Calling in to Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show on Thursday, June 20, the 29-year-old reality star said he had yet to meet the baby or find out her name. And he's in no rush.
"It's so new, so I'm going to give her some time and then as soon as she's ready, I'll come see her," Jenner told Seacrest of wanting to give his stepsister and her new family some space. (In fact, the former Hills star said in May that he had yet to even meet West, Kardashian's boyfriend.)
Asked whether he at least knew the little bundle of joy's much speculated-about moniker, he replied: "You know, I don't. I don't want to know! There's too much responsibility — don't tell me!"
Kardashian and her rapper beau are certainly playing it close to the vest with their daughter's name. So far, the proud new parents have yet to comment (or tweet) about the baby's five-weeks early arrival on June 15.
"They're not quite ready to announce the name yet," a source told Us Weekly exclusively. "But the name definitely does not start with a K, despite all the rumors that have been out." (Some reports claimed the new parents had chosen Kaidence Donda West; Donda was West's late mother's name.)
Jenner, for his part, has his own family issues to sort out. He and his dad, Bruce Jenner, have been working on mending their fractured relationship on season 8 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
"If I can go out there and show other people who maybe have relationship issues not only with their father, but with their mother or brother or sister, and just kind of reach out…you know, life is too short," he told Seacrest of why he decided to show their reconciliation on TV.
Things have been better between him and his father lately, he added — and that's having a positive effect on his relationships with the rest of the family, too. "It's awesome," he said of his bond with teenaged half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner . "[My relationship with Bruce] hindered my relationship with my little sisters. Growing up, I didn't get to see them as much because of the fact that I didn't get to my dad as much, but now everyday it grows, and it's getting better and better."
