North and . . . Saint! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West revealed on Monday, Dec. 7, that they've named their newborn son Saint West. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star announced the news on her official website — and critics were quick to weigh in with reactions on social media.
"#SaintWest …. WHAT A JOKE #Kardashians," one commenter wrote via Twitter. A second countered: "Is it bad that I really like the name Saint West?"
Kardashian, 35, and West, 38, welcomed their second child together on Saturday, Dec. 5. "He's here!" Kardashian tweeted at the time. A note on her site confirmed the baby boy's birth and added: "Mother and son are doing well." According to the big name announcement on Monday, Saint West weighed in at 8 pounds, 1 ounce.
As previously reported, the couple had a tough time choosing a name for their baby boy. (Twitter was rooting for Easton!) An insider told Us that they called their friends for suggestions, but it was "really hard" to narrow down a list.
