The world pretty much laughed hilariously when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced that they had named their first child, a little girl, “North West“. It was so obvious and ridiculous in a way that only they could be, and now it just… fits. North – or Nori, if you dare – is adorable and none of us really think too much about her name these days. But now that Kim is expecting again, everyone wants to know what the newest Kardashian/West child will be called. The Daily Mail thinks they’ve got the answer, though take this with a grain of salt, as per…
Daily Mail Online exclusively can reveal that the West couple will be, indeed, naming their baby boy a direction. Sort of.
‘Easton is the chosen name. It’s confirmed that the baby boy will be called Easton,’ a close family friend said, spilling the beans.
Easton West will join North West in about five months. The only location left is South, and Kim’s wasn’t big on that choice.
The reality star told NPR: ‘I don’t like South West, though, because that’s like, you know, North will always, you know, be better and be more…she has a better direction.’
She went on to affirm to Shaquille O’Neal on his podcast: ‘Why just add another direction? North is the best. I don’t want to try to duplicate that with a lower direction, you know?’ Yet, in a form, she will.
The family friend confirmed to Daily Mail Online that last week, the celebrity pair locked in the name ‘Easton’ so that his nursery and wardrobe can begin to be made, monograms and all.
‘Kourtney told a few girls at a Hidden Hills pool party last weekend that Kayne’s favorite name by far is ‘Easton’, a name Kim wasn’t hot on at first because Kanye liked simply ‘East’. But Kim came up with Easton and, for them, history was made.’
‘No doubt monogrammed baby bibs are being hand-sewn as we speak,’ the friend added. ‘Mason is already calling his auntie’s tummy Easton.’
LOL, history was made? A bit dramatic, don’t you think? I mean, I don’t hate the name Easton, but it’s a bit over the top with two directional names, don’t you think? Think outside the box, people. I know they probably lost me at the word “think”, but I was hoping for something a bit more.
Then again, it’s the Daily Mail… they could be (and usually are) very wrong. I guess only time will tell.
