Celebrity baby name alert! Although its 2019 and many people are opting to choose unique and distinctive names for their babies, celebrities are often known for picking unusual monikers for their newborns. The Kardashian-West family is no exception, starting with their firstborn daughter North and continuing with Saint and Chicago, Kim and Kanye are content with picking names that likely won't have any competition in the schoolyard. Their newest baby is no exception. The couple's fourth child was born via surrogacy about a week ago, and they have just revealed the name of the newest addition to the family- Psalm West!
Now those familiar with the bible have probably heard the term psalm before. A psalm is defined by Dictionary.com as a "sacred song or hymn". As pronounced, the word sounds like "Salm" as there is a silent p.
In social media photos that Kim Kardashian posted on Friday she showed a picture of the new baby with a screenshotted message from her husband Kanye West. The caption paired with the photo was an announcement of the new baby's name.
The sweet photo is of little baby Psalm all bundled up in a crib, along with a touching note from Kanye West.
According to E!News, the baby's name is in reference to the couple's spirituality. Kanye West has recently been giving Sunday Services, an invitation-only event that focus on music rather than preaching. These services have been star studded, with many other celebrities in attendance.
Psalm is now the youngest Kardashian-West child, behind older sister North (who is almost 6 years old), brother Saint (who is 3 years old) and sister Chicago (who is 15 months old). Kim Kardashian has always been up front about wanting a large family, and now with 4 children in the mix it looks like she has one!
Both Chicago and little Psalm were carried via surrogate, a process that Kardashian has spoken about openly. Kardashian chose this route due to her experiences with a condition called placenta accreta, a serious complication of pregnancy that can be life-threatening.
According to Kardashian's Twitter, little Psalm is "perfect" and looks just like his big sister Chicago.
