Kim Kardashian and Kanye West recently welcomed their fourth child, a son, via surrogate, and we’ve all been waiting to see what they were going to name their second boy.
With names like North West, Saint West and Chicago West, we already knew we were in for a treat. And on Friday (May 17), a week after the little guy’s arrival, Kim and Kanye revealed the first photo of their newborn son, while also announcing his name: Psalm West.
Kim shared a photo of Baby Psalm via a screenshot of a text from Kanye, who wrote: “Beautiful Mother’s Day With the arrival of our fourth child We are blessed beyond measure We have everything we need.”
