Guys! There’s a new mini-West in our midst! That’s right, y’all – last weekend Kimye welcomed a teeny baby boy by the name of Saint West. Baby Saint was born on Saturday, December 5 at Cedars-Sinai Hospital (that magical cradle of Hollywood civilization). Our hopes of another directionally-themed name are dashed, but either way…hooray for the probably sleep-deprived parents!
Unfortunately, I won’t end up getting the sister musical duo I had hoped for, but not all is lost! I’m imagining little North and Saint as later versions of Willow and Jaden Smith, complete with the avant garde style and incomprehensible tweets.
I also appreciate that Kanye’s naming strategy gives the new Baby West an early ego boost (although Saint is probably far too busy gurgling and pooping to worry about his ego). This holy naming scheme brings us back to Yeezus, when Kanye had the audacity to proclaim himself a god on the album’s third track. His willingness to extend that confidence to his kiddos just makes me feel all fuzzy inside.
We still haven’t gotten any pictures of Saint, but rumor has it he looks a lot like his big sister. Be still, my heart.
I can’t wait to see little Saint grow up to be a nutty celebrity kid. Congratulations to the Kardashian-Wests!
