The announcement was made on Kim’s app (because cha-ching).
Kim and Kanye, who decided not to go with a compass direction this time around, aren’t the first celebrities to give their kid the name. Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy welcomed a Saint in 2014. Selma Blair used it for a middle name for her son, Arthur Saint. However, seeing as Kanye goes by Yeezus makes the fact that he is now father to Saint even more delightfully ridiculous.
Another funny thing about the name? Kim’s ex Reggie Bush played for the New Orleans Saints back when they were dating.
Baby Saint West was born on Saturday morning in Los Angeles. Kim had a very difficult time becoming pregnant (she had success with in vitro fertilization treatment) and her nearly 40 weeks were a bit of a nightmare. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was diagnosed with both placenta accreta (a rare complication in which the placenta embeds too deeply in the womb) and preeclampsia (dangerously high blood pressure). A week before she gave birth, she had a procedure called external cephalic version (ECV) to manually turn the baby from a breech position. That worked, the baby arrived, and now they have christened him a Saint.
