Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their baby boy Saint West.
The couple announced their son’s moniker on Monday, two days after welcoming him into the world.
Kim, 35, and Kanye, 38, are already parents to two-year-old daughter North.
In a post titled ‘To Our Fans’ on her subscription based website kimkardashianwest.com, the reality star wrote simply: ‘Saint West, 12.05.15, 8 pounds 1 ounce.’
It was accompanied by four emojis, depicting their family.
Kim revealed last week on her website that she was having trouble picking out a suitable moniker for her little boy.
When asked what she currently ‘dislikes’ in a Q&A, she answered: ‘All baby names I am hearing. We need to think of a good name. This is so hard!’
While it was widely assumed that Kim and Kanye would pick out another unusual moniker for their second-born child, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said calling the baby South (to go with North) would be the ‘stupidest thing ever’.
She told NPR in June: ‘I don’t like South West, though, because North will always be better and she has a better direction. So I wouldn’t do that. I don’t think we’ll go with another direction.
She added: ‘Everyone keeps on saying South, and I think it’s so stupid. It’s the stupidest thing ever.’
Kim revealed to Ellen DeGeneres during an interview in September that she was a fan of the name Easton, but added: ‘I don’t think my husband likes that name, but I do like it.’
Kim is still in hospital following Saint’s birth, and is staying in a $4000-a-night birthing suite.
Her big sister Kourtney is said to have been by her side during the labour, and she has also received visits from Khloe and mom Kris Jenner.
On Monday, TMZ claimed that Kim’s birth was a long and painful one.
The star allegedly had placenta accreta, a serious pregnancy condition in which the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall. This can cause severe blood loss after delivery.
A C-section is often advised with the condition, but Kim still managed to have a natural birth, the website added.
During an interview with C Magazine in August, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star revealed that she may have to undergo a hysterectomy after the birth of her second child.
‘They think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me,’ she shared.
