It’s still a toss-up what Kim Kardashian and her hubby, Kanye West, will name their newborn.
The new mom of four announced their baby boy’s arrival via surrogate on Friday, telling her more than 60 million Twitter followers: “He’s here and he’s perfect!”
The star’s rep said the baby was born on Thursday, weighing about 2.9kg.
While the couple are keeping mum about the infant’s name, fans are convinced the reality star has dropped hints.
At the weekend she shared new photos from her baby shower and called her days-old newborn “the most calm and chill of all of my babies so far”.
The caption included a teddy bear emoji. And in a follow-up tweet with more baby shower photos, Kim captioned the set with a single teddy bear emoji.
One of Kim’s friends, former E! star Nicole Williams, who attended her CBD & Meditation-themed shower in April, used the same teddy bear emoji in the comments section, reports People.
We celebrated our baby boy about a week ago and now he’s here! He’s so perfect! Here are some pics of my CBD baby shower. I was freaking out for nothing because he is the most calm and chill of all of my babies so far and everyone loves him so much 🧸 pic.twitter.com/bYH1E2WXHY— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 11, 2019
This has led some fans to believe the emojis are in reference to the infant’s name, while others referenced Kanye’s Chicago hometown and that city’s baseball and football teams, the Chicago Cubs and Bears respectively.
One fan tweeted: “So is the name Bear? Lol I’m over here looking for clues lol”, while another wrote: “I was thinking Teddy.”
One fan tweeted: “I WILL BET ANYONE $100 that Kim Kardashian named her new baby ‘Bear’. (sic)”, while another wrote: “Bear or Teddy West, calling it. (sic)”
“They definitely named him bear... 1) the bear emoji 2) Chicago Bears,” said another fan.
Another asked outright if the baby would be named “Don West”, in honour of Kanye’s late mother, Donda.
Kim previously told Jimmy Kimmel the family all weighs in to name the baby and they usually wait a few days after the birth.
