Kim Kardashian announces daughter’s name—and, you guessed it, it’s unique

We didn’t see this one coming, but we do love it!

Kim Kardashian announces daughter’s name—and, you guessed it, it’s unique

The anticipation is over: Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West’s third baby’s name was formally revealed in a post from the proud mama’s app today—and gamblers could have earned some serious money if they put any money on Kanye’s hometown.

“Chicago West,” Kardashian West simply stated on Twitter.

Ever since the family announced they were expecting another baby, speculation into what name they would select has been rampant—with the only guarantee being that the moniker would be unique.

While we didn’t see Chicago coming, we’re digging it... Especially if they use “Chi” as a nickname like she suggested.


Chicago doesn’t even register on the Social Security Administration’s list of baby names—meaning it didn’t crack the Top 1000 most-popular in any year since 2000.

Then again, neither did the names for older siblings North or Saint. But according to Nameberry, the couple helped put those on the radar with both trending up since Kardashian and West used them.

Now all that remains: The big picture reveal for little Chicago!

    You will always be their safe space, mama

    You are their haven. Their harbor. Their sanctuary, their peace. You are comfort. Deep breaths. Hugs and back rubs. You're a resting place, a nightmare chaser, a healer. You are the calm within their storm. You are their mother.

    To your child, you are safety. You are security. You are where (out of anyone or any place), they can come undone. Where they can let it all out, let it all go. Where they meltdown, break down, scream, cry, push.

    Where they can say—"I AM NOT OKAY!"

    Where they can totally lose it. Without judgment or fear or shame.

    Because they know you'll listen. They know you'll hear them. That you will help piece the mess back together.

    The one thing your family needs to practice gratitude

    And a tradition you'll want to keep for years.

    Gracious Gobbler

    I think I can speak for well, basically everyone on planet earth when I say things have been a bit stressful lately. Juggling virtual school, work and the weight of worry about all the things, it's increasingly difficult to take even a moment to be grateful and positive these days. It's far easier to fall into a grump cycle, nagging my kids for all the things they didn't do (after being asked nine times), snapping at their bickering and never really acknowledging the good stuff.

    But the truth is, gratitude and appreciation is the kind of medicine we need now more than ever—and not just because the season is upon us. For one thing, practicing gratitude is a scientifically proven way to boost our happiness, health and relationships. More importantly, we need to ensure we're cultivating it in our children even when things are challenging. Especially when things are challenging.

    I'm ready to crank the thankfulness up a few dozen notches and reboot our family's gratitude game so we can usher out 2020 on a fresh note. So, I've called in some reinforcements.

    Enter: the Gracious Gobbler.
