has today confirmed the name that she and have chosen for their newly born baby daughter.

Taking to her official website earlier today, confirmed that she and her husband, have named their new baby daughter, Chicago West.

It was revealed this week that Kim and Kanye had welcomed their third chid to the world, a daughter, via surrogacy. In the details posted to Kim’s website at the time, we knew that their third child – behind eldest North West, and their son, Saint West – arrived on Monday, January 15. However, other details were a little scarce.

Just a few days after announcing the birth of their child, Kim has confirmed that they’ve settled on a name – Chicago. No other details have been given about the inspiration behind the name, but we do know that whilst Kanye was born in Atlanta, he was raised in Chicago… is that the inspiration behind their daughter’s name? It’s safe to say just about everyone was expecting something different.

After posting the link to the announcement on her website, Kim followed the tweet up with the names of her three children, and it looks like they’ll be calling Chicago ‘Chi’, just like they nicknamed North West, ‘Nori’. Weirdly enough, Kim also retweeted a fan of hers who wrote that you don’t pronounce the name like ‘CHI’, it’s actually ‘SHY’, because, you know… ‘SHYCAGO’ and everything.

North, Saint & Chi,” Kim added in a tweet.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Kim wrote: “Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care”.

Kim added that North and Saint are “especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister”.
