It turns out that baby Psalm West has someone other than his famous parents to thank for his unique name.
Us Weekly reports that, in last night's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, new mother-of-four, Kim Kardashian, arrives to a family BBQ with Psalm to introduce him to everyone. After “ooing” and “awing” over how adorable he is, especially when he gave his grandma, Kris Jenner, a little smile, Kris asks, “Kimberly, how did you guys settle on Psalm?”
The KKW Beauty founder reveals that she and her husband, Kanye West, wanted to name the baby “Ye” after Kanye’s nickname. But, after giving it some thought, Kanye didn’t like the name because he said it didn’t “mean anything.”
Kim explains, “So we looked up every name in the bible that had ‘Ye’ in the beginning, and like the only name was Yehezkel… And Kylie called at the last second and was like, ‘No! Psalm and Saint sound good together.’” Kim then added that Psalm’s new nickname around the house is “Psalm Ye.”
Kim, who used a surrogate for the pregnancy with Psalm, has said that it was the easiest delivery of all the children, and despite her initial fears of not feeling connected to the baby, she bonded with him immediately.
Congratulations again to the West family and their adorable new addition...and to Kylie for being the one to choose the name!
