Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their newborn Psalm West. I have only one question.
Is it a hymn or a her?
— Mr. Drinks On Me (@Mr_DrinksOnMe) May 18, 2019
Kim made the announcement across her social media pages and she posted a screen grab from a text exchange with her husband, which included a photo of the newborn in his bassinet.
“Psalm West” she captioned the picture.
“Beautiful Mother’s Day with the arrival of our fourth child. We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need,” read the text message beneath the photo.
The couple’s surrogate gave birth to Psalm on May 9, with Kim confirming the news the next day. “He’s here and he’s perfect,” she wrote on Twitter.
“He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her,” she added.
