OH, GOD, TELL US YOU DIDN’T DO IT, KANYE & KIMMIE.
TMZ and People are claiming that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian actually did name their newborn daughter North. Meaning her given name is ‘North West.’ No middle name. No Donda in honor of Ye’s deceased mother. No K as in Kitten, which I was rooting for, or Kaidence as reported earlier.
US reports that the couple have already adopted Nori as her nickname.
The baby Gemini was born Saturday five weeks prematurely at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
And it wouldn’t be Thursday if the news wasn’t a topic du jour on Twitter. Here’s a sampling.
So is Kim Kardashian's vag now called the North West passage?

North West?!? Why didn't Kim and Kanye name their baby South West? That way all that baggage she'll be carrying could fly free.

Kim and Kanye named their baby North West. It's one of the few things in Kim's life that hasn't gone south. #sorryshesprobablyverynice
