Fans are convinced that Kim Kardashian's Instagram update is a hint over her baby's name
Over the past few months, the Kardashian family has thrown us more curveballs and kept more secrets than a murder mystery novel. It all started with Kimye announcing they were expecting another child, their third after North and Saint West.
Then, Kim's younger sister Khloe shared the happy news that she was also soon to become a mom, meaning that two of the three Kardashian sisters were pregnant. But that wasn't the end of it. A little later on, rumors began to circulate that Kylie Jenner - the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan - was also expecting.
Overall, it's been difficult to keep up with who's pregnant, who's already had a kid, and why we still care about all of this.
In the latest installment of the ongoing saga, Kim appears to have hinted at the name of her daughter. Or she hasn't. Nobody's really sure. Either way, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posted a close-up of a Louis Vuitton bag to Instagram yesterday, and some people are convinced it's a clue about the newest baby K's name.
The picture, which was put up without comment, has more than a million likes and hundreds of thousands of comments - many of which are suggestions for what the little Kardashian's name could be.
According to People, the most popular guesses include "Elle V West," "LV West," and "Louis West", but the suggestion of "Love West" has appeared in the comments, too. As Kimye have been known to favor monosyllabic names, however, "LV" and "Louis" don't seem particularly likely.
Having said that, there is also a theory amongst Kanye fans that the rapper wants to name his little girl after his mother, Donda, who passed away in 2007.
So far, Kim and Kanye are keeping mum about the baby's name - if she actually has one yet - and have refused to make any other information about her public. They even turned down a $5 million deal for some pictures of their daughter, and will probably wait to release photos later on as they did with their other two children.
The only statement she has made so far was posted on her website:
“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”
However, back when Kim was pregnant with Saint, she spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about potential baby names and addressed the possibility of having another kid with a directional name.
“I do like the name Easton. Easton West. I don’t think my husband likes that name, but I do like it," she said, before adding: "I don’t think we’ll go another direction. It’s definitely not South. Every time someone says ‘South’ I just want to roll my eyes. It’s not a good direction."
Well, it seems as if the Kardashians are going to make sure we keep up with them for a little bit longer to find out for sure.
