Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have announced the name of her third baby: Chicago West.

The baby sister of North, 4-and-a-half, and Saint, 2, was born on Tuesday, with Kardashian writing on her website, "Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, handsome baby girl".

Followed by four heart eye emojis, Khloe showed her approval of the name choice while also confirming that the nickname of the newest member of the Kardashian's expanding empire will be Chi, identical to the fond moniker of the famous IL city. Their first-born, daughter North "Nori" West, was born in 2013, with son Saint West following in 2015.

She was born via surrogate but reports say that Kim and Kanye were both present for the birth.

Kardashian West ranks 47 on Forbes' celebrity 100 ranking of highest-paid entertainers with pretax earnings of $45.5 million.

Kim announced the news in a sweet post on her website which simply read: "She's here!" Another tweeted: "Chicago West isn't a community college?"

Chicago West is what the rapper and TV personality have named their third child and there is much chatter over this decision.


The mother-of-three revealed in a second tweet that the baby would be known as Chi (pronounced Shy).

'Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, lovely baby girl, ' the reality TV star wrote on Monday.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West attend the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets Game 7 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs on May 12, 2012 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

The couple's first two children were delivered by Kardashian West.

She also retweeted a fan who correctly deduced the pronunciation of the newborn's nickname.

Kardashian West carried and gave birth to her older children but was advised against getting pregnant again because of possible medical complications. "Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true".
