Kaidence West may be the new baby’s name for Kanye and Kim, with a middle name of “Donda” in honor of the rapper’s late mother. Kardashian wanted to keep the family’s “K” theme.
“North is at the top of the list of names,” according to InTouch. A friend of the pair told the gossip magazine, “They’re not totally sure about it. Kanye loves it, Kim is okay with it.”
Prior to the baby’s birth on Saturday it had been expected that the pair would continue the “K” theme that runs in Kim’s family – something that Kaidence would fit.
Kim, 32, has mentioned in the past that it will likely begin with a “K.”
And it seems her family are keen that remain the plan.
“The family doesn’t like it [North],” the insider told InTouch, adding, “They’re going to decide by today [Tuesday].”
Kim’s close friend Larsa Pippen revealed that she had been to visit the baby in the hospital and a decision was nearly made.
But she said Kim didn’t welcome her suggestions.
“We kind of went back and forth and the name that I wanted, [Kim] didn’t love,” she said.
Kanye has not spoken publicly following his daughter’s arrival.
But he did take to Twitter on Tuesday morning – to promote his new album Yeezus as it was released.
“Yeezus album now available,” he tweeted.
Kanye curtailed his promotional activities when Kim told him she “felt strange” on Friday, instead flying to be at her side.
With the baby not due until July it had been planned that Kanye would have time to finish his work commitments before the birth.
Despite his disagreements with Kim over the name, Kanye is said to be thrilled to be a first time father at 36. Larsa revealed the pop star has hardly left the room since Kim gave birth naturally at a hospital in Los Angeles on Saturday.
“He’s so cute. He doesn’t leave the room,” she told E! News.
“He’s, like, in love with the baby. It’s so cute.”
The wife of NBA superstar Scottie, Larsa a reality star herself is a close friend of Kim’s.
“She’s doing great,” the Real Housewives of Miami star said of Kim.
