Kim Kardashian: Forget What Kanye Said! Look How Cute My Baby Is!

As you've no doubt heard by now, Kanye West has been making headlines recently as a result of his social media activity.

Normally, that's not a bad thing, especially for an artist with new music coming out.

But Kanye has always taken a ... let's say unique approach to public relations, and this time, he may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Kanye West at TMZ

And by that, we mean, the formerly-beloved rapper basically seems hell-bent on torpedoing his own career.

You know things are bad when stealing the microphone from Taylor Swift as she attempts to accept an award looks like a good guy moment by comparison.

Anyway, it's impossible to keep up with all of Kanye's bonkers tweets and controversial comments these days, and it seems unlikely that his career will ever recover from the media frenzy of the past week.

On Tuesday, Kanye hit a new low when he remarked that the centuries of slavery in the United States were the result "a choice" made by blacks of those eras.

Kim and Chi

Yes, it was really that bad ... fortunately, for the sake of his reputation, Kanye married into a family that understands the importance of PR better than the Kennedys and the Clintons combined, hence the well-timed photo above.

Now clearly, Kim doesn't believe a few well-timed baby pics will make the world forget that Kanye said some profoundly ignorant sh-t just last night.

But she probably figures - rightly, as it happens - that come cute snaps of little Chicago can't hurt the situation.

Kim even posted some video clips of little Chi, cooing to her youngest daughter, “Are you not the cutest?”

Naturally, fans loved the latest glimpse at Kim and Kanye's third child, and thankfully, there was relatively little smack talk.

Kim should probably enjoy the moment, because amicable interactions with the public might be few and far between in the weeks to come.

In addition to Kanye's slavery comments, yesterday saw a revelation about a controversial period in his past.

Back in 2016, Kanye suffered a meltdown that was blamed his reps blamed on exhaustion and stress.

Last week, he revealed the true cause of his hospitalization:

It seems Kanye was addicted to opioids and struggled mightily to kick the habit:

Kanye West Tweets About Emma Gonzalez

“I think I’m in a stronger place than I ever was after the breakdown, or I like to say the breakthrough,” West told Charlamagne tha God in a candid interview yesterday.

The comment was controversial, as many believe Kanye is currently in the midst of a second breakdown.

Often with West, it can be difficult to tell the difference between media-baiting and genuine emotion.

Whatever the case, here's hoping Kanye gets help if he needs.

He's got a beautiful baby girl to look after.

Chicago West: Kim Kardashian Shares Cutest New Photo of Baby Girl!

Sweet baby Chicago West is just over 2 months old.

Though the world has gotten glimpses of this adorable, "royal" offspring, we've only gotten glimpses of her. Until now.

Kim Kardashian has shared the first full photo of this adorable little princess. Take a look!

Kim Kardashian Looks

Back in January, Kim and Kanye welcomed their baby girl, who was born via gestational carrier.

Though she was born on January 15th, it took days before the public even learned her name. Kim Kardashian is famous for slowly rolling out new information about her children.

It's part of striking a balance between her child's privacy and realistic expectations of her fans. Also, always leaving fans wanting more can't be hurting her brand.

Baby sister Kylie has been following that model with adorable little Stormi. And there's a decent chance that Khloe will do the same.

Now, for the first time, we're getting a real, full portrait of this unbearable adorable baby.

Take a look!

Chicago West at 2 Months Old

Hello there, Chicago!

Kim, of course, gets to see this overwhelmingly sweet little face every single day.

But for fans, looking at this oxytocin-inducing little bundle of love is a treat.

And, really, it's a first.

In the past, we've seen Chicago's face through Snapcaht filters, and we've seen her cheeks as a newborn in Kylie's pregnancy video.

Neither of those are the same as seeing Chicago full-on and unfiltered.

Chicago West Photo

Though we're sure that Kim Kardashian is a great mother to North, Saint, and Chicago, some have been critical of her parenting.

Sometimes, there are just ridiculous claims -- like people questioning if Kim Kardashian is neglecting baby Chicago because ... get this ... she's on social media a lot.

Kim is a reality star who built her brand on social media. The only thing that's "different" with Chicago versus with Saint and North is that Kim isn't having to recover from pregnancy and childbirth.

And that's the crux of why people think that she doesn't love Chicago the same way that she loves her other kids. Some people have embraced absurd stigma against gestational carriers (and surrogates), and think that a mother who really loved her children would birth them herself.

That's not only awful, it's dangerous. Kim loves her children and herself enough to want to be alive to be their mother. Giving birth herself would have put her life at risk.

Some criticisms of her parenting, however, may be a little less absurd.

Chicago West Picture

Recently, Kim shared a topless photo that was taken by North herself.

There were those who question whether it's appropriate to let your child take thirst trap photos ... least of all pictures in which their own mother is topless.

This may come down to cultural differences between families, however. For some families, it's normal for a father to spend time around the house shirtless, while others would be shocked to see that.

In some families, parents and children kiss each other on the mouth. Others would basically rather die.

Then, of course, came Kim's statement that her husband deserves as much attention as her children.

Since any parent's first obligation is to their children, that line could be interpreted as Kim prioritizing Kanye over her kids.

But ... maybe she was just offering marital advice. We can't imagine Kim neglecting her children.

Chicago West

Kim clearly cares about her children.

Reportedly, she doesn't want anyone else to tell Chicago about her surrogacy -- because she wants to be the one to explain to her little girl how she was born and why.

That sounds fair.

Besides, if a bunch of people talk to Chicago about where she gestated, this sweet little girl might grow up thinking that it somehow marks her as different.

Kim wants to avoid that.

We can't wait until we see more of her adorable little baby.

Kim Kardashian: Nobody Tell Chicago West About Surrogacy … EVER!!!

On January 15th of 2018, Kim and Kanye welcomed the birth of their third child -- a precious little baby named Chicago West.

Chicago was born via surrogate -- a smart and healthy choice considering the health risks that Kim would have endured with another pregnancy. But reports have claimed that something's different with this new child.

Kim Kardashian is reportedly distant -- but is apparently also insisting that no one tell Chicago about the surrogacy? How long does she think that she can keep it a secret.

Chicago West Photo

This is a little odd, folks, and we'll explain why.

RadarOnline reports that Kim Kardashian asks her family to let her be the one to tell Chicago -- when she's old enough to, you know, understand language and process the information -- about how she was born.

"Kim asked her family to never tell Chicago that she was born via surrogate."

If you're wondering how long Kim thinks that she could possibly keep that up, what with the surrogacy being famous and all, she apparently does plan for Chicago to eventually learn the truth.

"Kim said that she wants to be the one to tell Chicago the story of how she was conceived and she does not want to do so until she asks."

So she plans to hold out until the inevitable "where do babies come from?" question. That makes sense.
Chicago West

However, it sounds like Kanye's unhappy with Kim's request -- and there might be more too it.

See, there have also been some bizarre reports that lead some to believe that Kim Kardashian may be neglecting baby Chicago.

Or, at the very least, not having the sort of bond with her that she did with North and Saint after they were born.

Reports claim that Kim seems less maternal in the aftermath of Chicago's birth.

Descriptions make it sound like she's phoning in motherhood with sweet baby Chi.

Could it be true?

Kimye Family Photograph

Claims made to RadarOnline go on to suggest that Kim Kardashian views family as another part of her brand.

"Kim’s desire to have more kids comes from her need to stay rich and relevant."

And, per these reports, that it's driving a wedge between the Wests.

"But Kanye is starting to see how fake she is and, at this point, doesn’t want to add any more children to the mix. He is starting to not even recognize her at all anymore."

That is stunning if true.

Twice the Jeans

And Kanye is reportedly unhappy that Kim seems less devoted as a new mother this time around.

"It’s creating a lot of arguments for Kanye. He just doesn’t think that she’s into it."

Obviously, you can't just not be into your responsibilities as a parent.

"She just can’t quit with her selfie and body obsession -- and it’s pushing Kanye away once more."

That's curious, since Kanye's taken at least some of Kim's seductive photos.

"He thought she’d calmed down when the new baby came, but it’s actually gotten worse."

The Wests Together

Now, we hope that someone's just confused or has heard mixed signals, because Kim Kardashian loves her family and we'd hate to imagine her treating a baby born via surrogate any differently than she treated those she pushed out herself.

It may even be that someone is deliberately spreading rumors about her. Sometimes, a celebrity's friend can become their worst enemy.

As for the request that no one tell Chicago about the surrogacy until she asks -- well, that makes sense.

When your child asks about reproduction, you should tell them the truth -- yes, even if they're super young. That includes things like surrogacy.

We don't think that Kim thinks that she can keep Chicago in a bubble for life. But a mom who wants to be the one to tell her daughter about how she was born doesn't sound like a neglectful mother to us.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: Trimester Troubles

Last night on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe struggled to keep her pregnancy a secret, while Kourtney pondered more kids.

Seriously. She's thinking about number four.

When Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 19 got underway, everybody and their mother had babies on their minds.

Literally. 

If you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online, you know Khloe Kardashian is pregnant, and last night she revealed her birth plan.

"We’re having the baby in Cleveland,” Khloe told Kim one afternoon, somehow not sounding all that disappointed about the idea.

The baby's father, Tristan Thompson, plays for the NBA's Cavaliers in The Land; Khloe's doctor is flying in from L.A. to deliver.

Khloe Kardashian on E!
Kourtney Kardashian Laughs

In typical Kardashian fashion, Khloe revealed that after her baby enters the world, she plans on eating her child’s placenta.

Delish.

As for whether she plans to marry Tristan, Khloe said not in the near future, adding, “I was married before and it didn’t do anything."

"I’m in a good healthy relationship,” she said, while sister Kim opened up about her regrets over hiring a surrogate for her third child.

She said:

“Even though I will appreciate not having to gain the weight and then lose the weight … I so would have rather have done it on my own.”

Kim Kardashian is Weirded Out

Kim added that she worries she won't feel the same bond with Chi, saying “I just hope I care as much. Everyone says it’s like no different.”

Kourtney Kardashian, meanwhile, revealed she may be considering having another baby, even if that means freezing her eggs.

As for a sperm donor?

No need for that, she says, because hey, she has “real prospects.” Out with Scott Disick, in with Younes Bendjima, apparently.

Kourt decided against egg-freezing for now, but insisted she's “done having kids in life.” We have no idea what that means TBH.

Kourtney Kardashian Laughs

She's got three children already, and is 38.

That's not too old to have more kids by any means, but somehow we think this was mere filler for an episode devoid of much excitement.

We also got some insight into Kim Kardashian firing Stephanie Shepherd ... which she seems to think went just fine, thank you.

On the phone with a friend, Kim recalled approaching her ex-assistant and saying, “I just think that you’ve outgrown your position here.”

Kim added, “It ended like really well."

"She knew it wasn’t working.”

Keeping Up With the Kardashians Recap: Surrogacy Exposed

Sunday night on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 17, Kim received some alarming news about her surrogate.

Meanwhile, the life and times of Lord Disick once again took center stage ... and there is never a dull moment with him.

As you can see in the clip above, Scott opened up about how he's dating Sofia Richie, and it was awkward. Very awkward.

Not just because he has three kids with Kourtney Kardashian and any new relationship would be somewhat awkward, but ...

Sofia Richie is 19. Scott Disick is 34.

Nineteen. Naturally, eyebrows were raised - no small feat in a family where there are no taboos and Kylie had a baby at 20.

Fortunately (or unfortunately), there were other distractions going on ... such as Kourtney's house being infested with pests.

Just when she got rid of Scott too. Oh!

Most significantly, though, Kim Kardashian's surrogate's pregnancy leaked to the media, and this sent the star into a panic.

Incredibly, celebrity gossip site TMZ broke the news about her third child before Kimberly had even told people close to her.

"I honestly am absolutely fuming that there are all these articles coming out about our surrogate," Kardashian said.

"People started to write me asking if it was true," she added, "and I just said we don't want to talk about it right now."

Her surrogate's information also leaked, which was a huge breach of privacy for anyone in that kind of situation.

Kim called it "so invasive and so frustrating," and lamented that this was the reason she wanted to keep this on the DL.

Even Scott didn't know (above) and he's not that out of the loop. Then to make matters worse, it was Fashion Week.

That's right, Kim found herself in front of swarms of media and paparazzi when she was there to support Kendall.

Unwilling to lie about it, but also unprepared to confirm or go public with the news, she was in a really tough position.

Fortunately, she saw Kendall in the Alexander Wang show and was able to dodge the issue ... at least momentarily.

Kim in Shock

It's not that Kim was trying to be shady or secretive, it was just a private matter - involving a third-party - within her family.

This should have been a happy time for everyone involved and instead it became a huge cause of stress and anxiety.

Honestly, it was hard to watch. Kim is criticized and scrutinized for a lot of things, sometimes justifiably, but this? This?

This was Kim at her most vulnerable - ironically, her most relatable - as she scrambled to make sense of her own life.

She is still human, after all.

A Saint and His Mom

Sure, it's par for the course in our celebrity culture, but people like Kim's surrogate certainly aren't used to being exposed.

That added level of damage control on top of whatever she personally was going through made for a very trying situation.

One she really excelled at, considering.

All in all, she handled this about as well as anyone could have, and we know Chicago West is here and she's beautiful.

Congrats Kim and family! We can't wait to meet Khloe's new addition to this amazing, awesomely-named crew ...

Scott Disick to Kim Kardashian: Wait…You Have 3 Kids Now?!

When a Kardashian woman dumps a man, the rest of the family typically takes pity on him and allows him to remain in the loop and continue appearing on their reality shows.

It's for this reason that Scott Disick is still stumbling around the Calabasas homes of his ex's sisters like a lost puppy with an abiding love for Patron tequila.

Yes, despite the fact that Scott is now dating 19-year-old Sofia Richie after making Kourtney Kardashian's life a living hell for over a decade, the rest of the Kard clan has taken pity on him.

He's been permitted to remain in their inner circle - but it seems his security clearance is not that it used to be.

In a clip from this week's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we learn that Scott was apparently kept in the dark about the fact that Kim Kardashian hired a surrogate to carry her third child.

While checking out a room in her new house that Kim intended to turn into a nursery, Scott asked Kim if she was pregnant.

Her stunned response says it all.

"No, I'm not. We went the surrogacy route," Kim replies. 

"I never had this conversation with you? I swear I'm not joking with you. Scott, I swear I'm not joking with you."

"I don't know what's going on anymore," a dejected Scott replies.

It seems like he's not exaggerating, but that could have less to do with the fact that he's being kept in the dark and more to do with the fact that he's still coming down from a year-long bender.

Kylie Jenner Gives Birth, Reveals Shocking Pregnancy Secrets!

Nine months of secrecy. Nine months of hiding. Nine months of holding back a barrage of selfies and life updates over social media.

Now, the dam has burst.

Kylie Jenner gave birth!!

In an announcement over Twitter and Instagram, Kylie shared that she has given birth to a healthy baby girl. She shared the news on her due date, February 4th, but actually gave birth on February 1st.

In addition to that joyous news -- and an apology to her fans for keeping this part of her life when they are accustomed to her sharing so much -- Kylie and her family revealed everything that fans had missed.

Below, you can see the numerous photos that Kylie and her family shared, including the world's first glimpse of Kim's daughter, Chicago West.

Are you ready to see the baby kick? Are you ready to see the ultrasound? Take a look!

Kylie Jenner Baby Video Shows Daughter, Chicago West, and More!

On Sunday, we learned that Kylie Jenner has welcomed her baby girl. The unnamed daughter was born healthy on February 1st.

Despite the wall of secrecy that surrounded Kylie during her pregnancy, she's now revealing everything in a new video of the family.

In the video below, we see Kylie's growing baby bump, we see Kim's baby Chicago West, and the camera was still rolling in the hospital room when Kylie gave birth.

This video shows so much.

After nearly a year of secrecy, rumor, and speculation, it's a shock tor receive so much new material on Kylie Jenner's pregnancy journey all at once.

Curiously, the video was either shot on actual film (if you can imagine) or captured normally and then put through a filter to make it appear like a home video from the 1990s.

(We'll say one thing about filming things with actual film -- no hacker's going to be able to access that)

Whatever the format, we're delighted to see this video.

Chicago west

(The camera zooms in on little Chicago West, cradled in the arms of the still very pregnant Kylie Jenner)

The video is primarily about Kylie, of course, but it does feature some other surprises.

For example, Kim Kardashian's youngest daughter, born via surrogate.

Here's a wider shot:

Chicago West seems to be a peaceful, happy baby.

(And so incredibly cute!!)

And Kylie (still pregnant in this portion of the video) looks right at home holding her precious little neice.

As you can see in the top photo, Dream Kardashian -- who's still a baby herself -- meets her cousin, Chicago.

Cuteness beyond measure.

Kylie jenner and baby bump

But we see plenty of footage of Kylie Jenner's baby bump through most of the video.

As hard as Kylie worked to keep things secret in public, she didn't mind showing it off to those she trusted.

There were some really, truly unkind reports that described Kylie as "unable to stop eating" and ashamed of the weight that she gained during pregnancy.

We can't disprove those reports any more than we can confirm them, but to me, she looks on the small side compared to plenty of pregnant bodies.

She had nothing of which to be ashamed -- and wouldn't have, even if her weight gain had been drastic.

Kylie jenner bare baby bump

For months and months, we wondered how long Kylie would hide her body.

Well, here she is, sharing actual footage of her bare baby bump from during her pregnancy.

So no, glimpses for curious fans won't be limited to the oversized hoodies that she enjoys sporting.

We've also wondered how long Kylie will hide her baby.

Well ... wonder no longer.

Kylie jenner and her baby girl

That's not a full shot, but this image, from towards the end of the video, shows Kylie Jenner and a baby right after we actually hear her giving birth.

The unnamed baby was born at 4:43 pm on Thursday, February 1st, 2018.

The birth weight was 8 pounds, 9 ounces.

We can only guess at Kylie Jenner's baby name, but she's shared a whole lot of herself and her family in this video.

Enjoy what Kylie refers to as "a little glimpse of the last 9 months."

Kim Kardashian Surrogate: Bonkers Dietary Restrictions Revealed!

Early last week, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child. They even named the third Kimye baby Chicago West.

So much about the surrogate who carried Chicago to term remains a mystery. But, little by little, we're learning more.

Including the dietary restrictions to which the surrogate agreed. These sound bonkers. Could you follow these rules for 10 months?

Front and Also Center

RadarOnline reports that, as part of the agreement signed in March of 2017, Kim Kardashian's surrogate accepted dietary restrictions, including:

-Not "consuming, at any time, mold-ripened soft cheese, including, but not limited to, brie, camembert, chevre, blue cheese, and gorgonzola."

- Not eating "raw or partially cooked eggs, raw or undercooked meat, cold deli meats, hot dogs, any and all live products (excluding yogurt), all pates, meat spreads, liver."

- Also not ingesting "supplements containing Vitamin A, raw peanuts, unpasteurized dairy and juices, raw sprouts and any unwashed fruits and vegetables."

And those restrictions aren't all.

Kim Kardashian: Who Needs a Bra?

There were also very, very specific fish requirements.

At no point was the surrogate to consume "tile fish, raw shellfish, mackerel, raw fish, smoked salmon, or swordfish."

For some of us, a ban on raw fish is a ban on fish altogether (I love sushi but don't care for seafood in any other form).

But there is one type of fish that Kimye's surrogate could ingest, if she so desired.

Tuna was permitted ... but "no more than six ounces" of tuna in any given week.

Kim in Shock

These all sound bizarre, right? But there's actually a method to this Kardashian-West madness.

Let's start with the cheese, because if you're like me, you saw something about limits on cheese and thought that's a dealbreaker.

But those very specific types of cheeses are "soft cheeses," and can contain listeria. Pregnant women are generally advised to not risk eating them. So it's not just a celebrity thing.

Raw and partially cooked eggs (even though we all love our cookie dough) carry a risk of contamination with coliform bacteria, toxoplasmosis, or salmonella. Again, this is a standard thing for pregnant women to not eat.

Cold deli meats, like soft cheeses, carry the risk of listeria. (I worked in a deli and let me assure you, folks: better safe than sorry)

A Saint and His Mom

Unwashed fruits and vegetables can carry the risk of e. coli contamination, which is no joke. Grown children can die from e. coli; you don't want that during a pregnancy.

Also, you generally want to wash your produce to get potential pesticides off of it.

Finally, for the super specific fish stuff.

Basically, all of that comes down to mercury pollution in the oceans, which is bad enough that, if you're pregnant, you don't need to be eating all sorts of fish, including swordfish.

The weekly tuna "allowance" is also because of the mercury found in tuna, which is also why people are generally advised against letting their cats eat canned tuna.

Kim Kardashian is AGHAST!

Considering that Kim Kardashian's surrogate was only paid $68,000, that's a long list of requirements. She had to forego sushi for almost an entire year.

But since these restrictions aren't above and beyond anything that your average doctor would recommend, the only extraordinary thing is that Kim got it in writing.

(Incidentally, the list also restricts the surrogate from drinking more than one cup of a caffeinated beverage per day ... but doesn't mention a ban on alcohol. Or does that just go without saying?)

But you want to write down all of the details if you're paying somebody. That's what contracts are for.

This list is something that anyone thinking about becoming a parent should consider. Children can be wonderful, but are they really better than cheese? Or sushi?

Kim Kardashian Surrogate Salary: Revealed! Paltry!

If you've been anywhere near social media this week, then you're no doubt aware that Kim Kardashian has welcomed her third child.

You're probably also aware that she gave that child a very strange name.

Kim Kardashian: Who Needs a Bra?

Yes, the moniker Chicago West is dominating all other Kardashian news this week for the simple reason that it's an unusual name for a baby girl, even by Kimye standards.

Kim and Kanye would probably appreciate it if most critics would hold their damn tongues, but they're probably not too upset about the fact that Chicago is dominating the entertainment news cycle.

For one thing, Kim and Kanye are of the opinion that everything they do is deserving of the public's full attention and that's doubly true when they do something that's actually newsworthy, such as welcoming a child and naming it after a major American city.

And as a bonus, the name distracts from the weird news coming out today about Kim and Kanye's surrogate:

As we reported yesterday, Kim's surrogate was reported to have been very well-paid for her services.

Kimye Family Photograph

That would make perfect sense, of course, as being a surrogate is a major commitment and Kim and Kanye are very wealthy.

Today, however, Radar Online is reporting that the surrogate (who remains anonymous) was paid much, much less than initially thought.

The site claims that the surrogate received a mere $68,850 in compensation “for all discomfort, pain, suffering, and inconveniences, for pregnancy and pre-birth child support expenses and post-birth expenses.”

It's a sizable sum, to be sure, but a mere fraction of what was expected as payment from one of the wealthiest couples in entertainment.

In addition to the flat fee, Kim and Kanye agreed to cover “obstetrical, nursing, hospital and maternity care, pharmaceutical, pediatrics, or other costs,” as well as covering all “medical expenses, fees, costs and services relating to the pregnancy and the birth of the child.”

Generous, sure, but also a standard part of most surrogate agreements.

Kanye West and a Woman

The Wests even went so far as to put a clause in the contract ensuring that they would not be held responsible if, for any reason, the surrogate's husband was forced to miss work during her pregnancy:

“The Intended Parents shall have no responsibility to pay the gestational carrier’s husband’s lost wages under this agreement,” 

We should note that none of this comes directly from the surrogate, as according to the terms of her contract, she's not permitted to speak to the press.

The surrogate's parents spoke on her behalf earlier this week and assured the public that all is well. 

“She is doing well,” her mother told Radar Online.

"Everything went well. As a matter of fact, she’s at home resting," said the surrogate's father, when asked if there were any complications.

Kim Kardashian in Tight Dress

Both parties declined to offer any further information for fear of giving away their daughter's identity.

An anonymous source says the mother-of-two is happy with the arrangement, as she was never really in it for the money: 

“Neither she or her husband have asked for a nickel more from Kim or Kanye” said the source.

“They just wanted to bless someone’s family with the gift of a child.”

That's nice and all, but if the family you're blessing happens to be insanely wealthy, might as well ensure that your own kids are taken care of, right?

Just sayin' ...

Blac Chyna to Kim Kardashian: Congrats on the Baby! I’m Still Suing!

For a woman who was just delivered a serious blow in her court battle against the Kardashians, Blac Chyna seems to be in astonishingly good spirits.

She's vowing to keep fighting after her huge setback.

But she's also congratulating Kim and Kanye on the birth of their third child, calling the baby girl a "blessing."

Blac Chyna in Red

You didn't miss Kim Kardashian's new, bizarre baby's name, right? Kimye's youngest daughter's name is Chicago West.

(Chicago West sounds like the name of a fashion line or perhaps like Carmen Sandiego's apprentice, so ... it's fine)

Before the news of the baby girl's name even broke, The Blast caught up to Blac Chyna and asked what she thought of Kim's third child being born.

Chyna replied: "It’s always a blessing. They deserve blessings."

Some may find it surprising that Chyna could be so chipper about the Kardashians, considering recent developments.

Blac Chyna Acts All Sweet

So, you know how Blac Chyna is suing the entire Kardashian clan?

She claims that they used their influence to sabotage her reality career when it had scarcely begun, effectively blacklisting her at E!

If true, this would mean that the Kardashians cost her not only the money she would have earned through reality TV income, but cash from merchandising and endorsements and appearances. Which is why she's suing.

The Kardashians argue that they didn't maliciously undercut her career -- that she missed out on work because she refused to film scenes with Rob, and even got a restraining order against him.

Blac Chyna reportedly hates that argument, and countered that she shouldn't have lost her job over her fear of Rob.

Blac Chyna, Cleavage for Days

Well, RadarOnline reports that Blac Chyna's lawsuit against the Kardashians saw a major setback.

"“Chyna lost today," their source claims.

"But it is a temporary situation. Chyna is going to fight back."

That's no surprise. Chyna's a fighter, clearly.

"She is going to go back and try again and try and convince the judge of his error."

Blac Chyna in a Red Wig and Little Else

What error, you ask?

Reportedly, the judge in the case indicated that he's going to remove both Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner from the lawsuit.

This weakens Blac Chyna's case, we imagine, in two ways.

One, because Kris and Kim have deep pockets, and if they're not the targets of her lawsuit, she can't be awarded damages directly from them.

Two, and we're just guessing (not legal experts), but one imagines that Blac Chyna will have a harder time arguing that, say, Rob pulled some carefully crafted scheme to sabotage her reality career. Rob is ... well, Rob.

He's not exactly an evil genius.

Blac Being Blac

But apparently Blac Chyna stands fully poised to convince the judge that Kim and Kris do belong within the scope of her lawsuit.

Failing though, though, she's said to be prepared to amend her lawsuit in such a way that she can still win.

Still, though Blac Chyna's called the Kardashians all sorts of nasty things during the course of her falling out with the family and these legal fights, it's not a surprise that she's speaking pleasantly about Chicago's birth.

Blac Chyna's link to the Kardashians isn't Rob -- it's Dream.

When Chyna talks about Chicago, she's not just talking about the child of her enemy, she's talking about the newborn cousin of her own baby daughter.

Her feud with the Kardashians is ... very complicated.

Kim Kardashian Baby Name: Revealed! Bizarre!

As you've likely heard by now, Kim Kardashian welcomed her third child this week.

The baby girl was delivered via surrogate early Monday morning, and as with their first two children, Kim and Kanye have been very selective about which details they choose to share with the public.

Rumors about the child's name have been circulating on social media non-stop, but now we finally know what moniker the Wests have chosen--and it might be their strangest one yet.

Front and Also Center

Yes, Kim and Kanye have always preferred eccentric names for their children, as evidenced by daughter North and son Saint.

But we don't think anyone could have predicted a handle quite as unusual as--drumroll please--Chicago West.

Yes, the little girl will go through life with the name of Chicago West.

(If she has a middle name, it's currently being kept private.)

The announcement was made on Kim's subscription-based app just moments ago.

We suppose it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise.

Chicago Sign

After all, the couple clearly has a fondness for names that sound like they were suggested by Rand McNally.

According to TMZ, little Chicago will go by the nickname Chi (pronounced "shy").

Obviously, the decision was made as a tribute to Kanye's hometown.

Chi was born in Los Angeles, of course, but it seems her parents don't want her to forget that the world is bigger than ultra-posh Calabasas.

Of course, it's a lot of pressure being named after such a rough-and-tumble city, and young Chi (great rap name, btw) will have to put in some serious effort if she wants to live up to her name.

Kimye and POTUS

She'll need to grow up with a healthy reverence for Oprah and Obama, as well as a persistent sense of insecurity about the Cubs.

(Fun fact: Did you know Chi West wasn't even alive the last time the Cubs won a World Series?!?!)

She'll need strong opinions about deep dish pizza, ketchup on hot dogs, and the importance of public transportation.

When the time comes to choose a career, she may want to consider becoming a corrupt politician.

We kid Chicago because we love it, of course.

And we love the Wests for once again delivering a baby name that no one could've predicted.

Mazel tov to one of the world's most consistently compelling families!

Kim Kardashian Confesses: Surrogacy is Harder than Pregnancy!

At the beginning of the week, Kim and Kanye welcome their third child -- a healthy baby girl. 

We don't yet know the youngest West child's name, but we do know how she was born. Kim's pregnancy via surrogacy was ... not exactly secret.

But now Kim is opening up about everything about her pregnancy and her huge decision to have this child via surrogate.

Kim Kardashian, So Made Up

In a post on her app, Kim Kardashian spoke about her pregnancy decision -- about her surrogate, why she chose that route, and about her healthy baby daughter.

"It's as if she was with us the whole time," she says of her new baby. She then explains that, because of her history with pre-eclampsia and placenta accreta, this was really her only option.

"Doctors said that it wasn't safe for my, or the baby's, health to carry my own."

Which, of course, is why Kim and Kanye opted for what she refers to as a "gestational carrier," but almost everyone else refers to as a surrogate.

In case there's any confusion about whose gametes got to mingle to make the third Kimye baby, Kim clarifies that her child is "biologically mine and Kanye's."

Did anyone really think otherwise? Kim's eggs work just fine; it's the placentas that form in her body that try to kill her.

Are you ready to hear about how hard it is having a surrogate? Because Kim's ready to tell you.

"Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it's the easy way out is completely wrong."

Well, sure. For one thing, it's super duper expensive, which is likely why the mysterious surrogate hired by Kim and Kanye agreed to it in the first place, though we don't know how rich the surrogate may now be.

Kim says that it's not all carefree fun, though.

"People assume it's better because you don't have to deal with the physical changes, pain, or complications with delivery."

Well ... yeah.

"But for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint."

Ah. She's talking about bonding. Not the baby's bonding -- her nameless third child is doing plenty of that. But Kim's own bonding.

Kim Kardashian: Who Needs a Bra?

But, clearly, she still feels that having a surrogate is better than dying.

As for her surrogate, Kim says that she "trusted her completely throughout the entire process."

That's great. I think that we've all seen one episode of a crime show or another where a couple's surrogacy plans didn't turn out as they'd expected.

Normal couples have to worry that their surrogate will change her mind and keep their child. For Kim, there must have been fears of spilling secrets.

"I'm so grateful for modern technology and that this is even possible."

Scientists have actually made an artificial womb recently, and I believe that they were able to grow a lamb in it. Some say that this is the future of surrogacy -- parents could watch development in a little nook within their home. Just putting that out there.

But, to be clear, Kim isn't trying to push this idea on everyone.

"It's not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I've ever had."

Considering that Kim's pregnancies were high risk, we'd imagine so.

"Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true."

We're so glad that this worked out so well for Kim.

A Saint and His Mom

Though Kim is quick to make it clear that she did this because she might have died otherwise, let's make something clear:

There's nothing wrong with surrogacy, even with zero medical necessity. It shouldn't have any stigma attached to it.

Many like the idea of having a surrogate simply so that they don't have to go through pain and suffering to birth a child. 

And those who can afford the service may also like the idea of financially assisting the person who's helping them have a child.

It's a win-win scenario. The only losers are people who think that a natural birth is the only way, and those folks are losers anyway.

Kim Kardashian Baby Name: Possibly, Sort of Revealed!

According to a recent report, Kim Kardashian has fallen in love with a possible name for her third child.

We mean this more or less literally.

Kardashian supposedly likes the name "Love" for baby number-three.

Kim Kardashian Looks

Or does she?

The reality star shared a mysterious Instagram photo on Wednesday that has caused many followers to assume she and Kanye have selected a name for their new daughter.

What, exactly, is the name?

Well... no one knows for certain.

But many theories are now abounding around the Internet as a result of the image below.

The 37-year old Keeping Up with the Kardashians actress posted a seemingly simple Louis Vuitton monogram on her wildly popular account, prompting many users to think her daughter’s name was inspired by the fashion house.

First, let's take a look at the photo in question:

Kardashian did not include a caption with the posting.

She could have simply been referencing her affection for the brand, but that possibility hasn't slowed down massive World Wide Web speculation.

Among the guesses fans have tossed around since this monogram went viral?

“Elle V West,” “LV West” and “Louis West.”

Do these options sound sort of absurd for a child's name? Yes.

But Kim and Kanye named their first kid North and their second kid Saint. So, really, nothing is off the table at this point.

It's also worth noting that West has included many Louis Vuitton references in his music, including in tracks such as“Stronger,” “Runaway Love,” “Gold Digger,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” “The Glory” and “Pinocchio Story.”

He is sometimes called Louis Vuitton Don for a reason.

The couple known as Kimye welcomed a girl into the world via surrogate on Monday.

Multiple reports have confirmed that Kardashian was in the room for the birth, which she did not go through with herself due to a serious medical condition.

Wrote the former sex tape star as confirmation of the blessed event:

"Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl."

She added:

"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."

Now that Kim is a mother of three, some are wondering just how long she'll continue on with her reality television career.

Others, conversely, figure this new arrival simply gives her ample fodder for many more years of E! episodes.

In the end, of course, no one knows for sure.

Kardashian herself may not even know... or care very much at the moment.

She now has three kids at home under the age of five and may very well have more important things on her mind, such as sleep and sanity.

Until she reveals the name herself, we'll take all rumors with a grain of salt the size of Kim's boobs and we'll simply say the following:

Congrats, Kim and Kanye!!!!!!

Kim Kardashian & Kylie Jenner: Fighting Over a Baby Name?!

Yesterday, the world learned that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child!

The baby girl was born via surrogate, and while we're sure that the family is overjoyed, we don't yet know the name. 

Reportedly, not even Kimye know the name. And rumor has it that Kim and her sister Kylie are having a tug-of-war over a name that they both want for their child.

Kimye in 2017

Kim Kardashian decided to have her third child via surrogate.

She did this, not only because pregnancy absolutely sucks, but because Kim has a potentially life-threatening condition known as placenta accreta, in which the placenta becomes too firmly attached to the uterine wall. This makes for difficult pregnancies that put Kim's life at risk.

A surrogate was definitely the right call.

Kim was present for the childbirth, and was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with her newborn daughter.

Oh, and their third child was born at Cedars-Sinai in L.A. which is the same place where both North and Saint were born.

Kim and Kanye have set the bar pretty high when it comes to epic names.

Though Kim and Kanye both have K-names, they're eschewing Kris Jenner's K-naming convention, opting instead for distinctive names that really make an impact.

North West is ... truly an incredible name.

And Saint West ... well, we'd say that no one saw that one coming, but six months before Saint was born, someone tweeted:

"Watch kanye name his kid 'saint' or some stupid s--t."

We did all watch.

North and Saint will be tough acts to follow.

Kylie Jenner While Pregnant

This Kimye newborn is only the first of the 2018 Kardashian Baby Boom, however.

Kylie Jenner is pregnant, and though her sister Khloe is also pregnant after many years of talking about it and (seemingly) worrying about her fertility, Kylie's baby is arguably the most anticipated childbirth of this coming year.

Reportedly, Kylie Jenner's due date is February 4th. She's had a long, long time to consider what to name her baby.

She is expecting a baby girl, and according to a report, there's a name that she really likes. You might even say that she loves it.

There's just one problem: Kim also likes the name.

Kylie Jenner Hearts You

According to RadarOnline, Kim and Kylie are fighting over baby names. 2018 is only a couple of weeks out of the gate, and it's already wild.

The name in question?

Love.

"Kim and Kylie were fighting over the name," their source claims.

It's not the first time that Kylie and Kim have competed against each other. They're the two richest Kardashians, with their various ventures (and both are in the makeup business).

Apparently, Kylie "also likes the name Princess."

Kim, as the big sister, was apparently "learning toward Star, and will likely let Kylie have Love."

This same report claims that Kanye wants to name their daughter "South," but that Kim thinks that it would be too cheesy ... and that it would be bad for their brand.

Kimye at Home

We'll take that report with a grain of salt, but it's worth considering those names.

Is Kylie planning on giving her baby Travis Scott's last name? I've always thought that patrilineal names don't make much sense, especially since Kylie's the one who was pregnant. Travis Scott's part of the equation was brief and, presumably, accidental.

What's more, while Love West would be one hell of a baby name, Love Scott would be ... awkward.

Imagine Kourtney Kardashian, whose ex is Scott Disick, saying the name of her newborn niece.

Yikes.

If Kim names her daughter Star West, then their daughters' names would be North and Star. Cute.

But don't fixate on any names just yet. You never know what Kimye might come up with.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: The Surrogate Blues

This week's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians featured Kimberly coming to the decision to have a third child via surrogate.

It was a decision that carried many mixed emotions.

Kim Kardashian Listens to Scott Disick

First off, how did she come to choose her surrogate?

"Finding someone you really trust is really more difficult than you can imagine," she said of the still-anonymous young woman.

"It was maybe a year before we finalized [that].”

Kim gushed that the woman entrusted with carrying her child - who is 100% Kim and Kanye's, genetically - is just "such a nice person."

"Like, she’s so easy to talk to. This particular surrogate, she was the best fit for my family so we just had to go with it and try one embryo.”

Additionally, Kim revealed that an implanted embryo from a fertility procedure before her pregnancy with son Saint, now 2, was lost:

“One didn’t work with me. I tried it and I lost one.”

Kim Kardashian is Pensive

Sister Khloe then opened up about this, too.

“Before Kimberly got pregnant with Saint," Khloe said, "she had an embryo implanted in her and that embryo did not take."

"So Kim is super nervous and anxious.”

Understandably so, but it appears that this time frame has passed, as later, she told her family, "We’re having a baby. A girl.”

“I definitely want to keep it private. I don’t want people to find my surrogate. I don’t want people following her, chasing her.”

“I really trust my surrogate,” though, she said:

“I’m not trying to control her every move.”

Not all is well with her inner circle, however, as Kim revealed that her relationship with Stephanie Shepherd wasn’t always amicable.

Stephanie Shepherd

The duo remain close following Shepherd’s firing as Kim’s assistant this year, but it's clear there is some bad blood lingering.

As Kim went on to discuss the pair's up and down history, she confessed to Kourtney in an off-hand remark, “I hated Steph.”

Later in the episode, Kourtney finally confirmed her relationship to Younes Bendjima to Khloe, following a little bit of teasing.

Kourtney explained her reluctance to talk about the romance on the show, even as her sister prodded her, on the show.

She said, “I don’t feel like sitting and airing my business. I’m not using it on the show. I don’t feel like I need to expose."

Fair enough.
