Chicago West Is Already an Internet Icon and These Reactions Are Proof

My Chi girl Proud dad Kanye West grins as Kim Kardashian reveals new baby is named Chicago... after his childhood home

Kim Kardashian revealed on Friday that she and Kanye West have named their newborn daughter Chicago West, ending days of speculation that saw fans coming up with a plethora of ideas for the infant's name.

West and Kardashian welcomed Chicago via surrogate on Monday.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are now parents to three kids. I was really pulling for Kim and Kanye to not give their child an actual name because that would really play into their aesthetic of minimalism. She and West have two other children: Four-year-old daughter North and 2-year-old son Saint. She sent out a follow-up tweet saying "North, Saint & Chi".

The reality star has spoken publicly about her fears the couple would not be able to have another child after the first embryo implanted in the surrogate was lost.

Kim's sister Khloé, who is now pregnant with her first child, was quick to praise the name, revealing to her 25 million followers that she "loved" it."I LOOOOOOOOOOVE her name  hey Chi (shy)", the proud auntie said. After all, they didn't name Baby No. 3 "Calabasas".

@Mattresstagging posted: "Just don't think a name should sound like a neighborhood listed on a free map". Chicago is Kanye's hometown.

@TheJessLyf posted: "Chicago... West..."

Khloe took to Twitter today after the name of her newest niece had been publically revealed to gush about the choice and explain the pronunciation of the baby's nickname.

We have to admit, "Chi West" is going to be a dope nickname - congrats, KimYe!

Kardashian announced the name on her website and on Twitter.

Kardashian West also revealed that the baby weighed 7lbs 6oz. According to E! News, doctors advised them to use a surrogate for their third child due to the mother's troubles with preeclampsia and placenta accreta during her past two pregnancies.
