Kim Kardashian and Kanye West who welcomed their fourth child on May 10 surprised fans around the world by naming him Psalm and it carries a special connotation for the family. Psalm means “song” in Hebrew and there’s also the Book of Psalms in the Bible.
The newborn was carried by a different surrogate mother and not the same one that carried her third child, Chicago who is now 1 year old.
Kim and Kanye were at the hospital with the surrogate to welcome their newborn. The proud parents were said to have used a leftover embryo they created to bring this newest baby to life.
The celebrities explained, “It was a very important to him, and Kim wanted the name to have a significance that held a true representation of their family, so she agreed on the name.”
All of the Kanye West children have personal stories and definitions behind their names. For their oldest kid North West, it’s all about the geographical position and what it signifies.
“North means highest power,” a source said at the time. Saint West’s name refers back to her “difficult pregnancy” and how he was “a blessing” for the family. Kim apparently also liked the name Easton, but Kanye wasn’t a fan.
It turns out that they almost named their other daughter, Chicago West, Grace or Jo. But Kanye hails from the Windy City, thus it’s an homage to the city “that made him.”
Kim Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner also opened up about her grandson, the newest addition to the family while attending the 2019 Fresh Air Fund Spring Benefit with boyfriend Corey Gamble on Wednesday night (May 22) in New York City.
She said, inspiration was the Book of Psalms in the Bible, “I think it’s just a wonderful way to celebrate how they feel. And he’s such a blessing, so it’s perfect.”
