Fans react to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's new baby's name
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child via surrogate on Tuesday. The couple broke the news on Kim's website, announcing that they were "over the moon" with their new addition. "She’s here! We’re so in love," wrote Kim. "Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl".
Kim's previous pregnancies did not run smoothly; after the births of her first two children, now four-year-old North and 3-year-old Saint, Kim suffered from complications including pre-eclampsia and placenta accreta, which led to her being unable to carry her third child. As she said during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, "I always knew surrogacy was an option, now it's my reality".
And since Tuesday, fans of the reality television star have been waiting with bated breath to see what Kimye decided to name their youngest daughter. Having chosen names like "North" and "Saint" in the past, people were certainly expecting something a little eccentric. And the name they chose - "Chicago" - inspired many mixed reactions and a lot of jokes on social media. Here are some of the best.
Baseball teams had a field-day with the name
Chicagoans poked so much fun at Kim and Kanye
Others thought Chicago West sounds like a hospital (?!)
One Twitter user came up with an elaborate conspiracy theory
another just thought it summed up 2018
While some people just loved the name
Well, there you have it, the people of the internet really do have a lot to say about Kardashian-West naming system. But while it may seem like a rather out-of-the-blue choice to you and I, Chicago (yes, the place), has a lot of significance for Kanye, as he was raised in the US city. It's one way to stay close to your roots, I guess?
