After a week of suspense during which the family refused to announce the name given to Baby Girl Kardashian-West, we finally have an answer. The name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby is North West, according to TMZ, who obtained the birth certificate. Her nickname will be reportedly be Nori.

Earlier this week it was rumored that the baby was named Kaidence Donda, honoring both Kanye’s heritage (his mother, who passed away, was named Donda) and Kim’s (K). Apparently they decided on a fresh start though. A pun name is a tough burden to put on a little baby, but on its own “North” is kind of elegant and cool. Besides, maybe she’ll embrace it and put out a novel called “North.” The cover can be a plane chasing a guy through a cornfield.

On Saturday, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s super spawn officially entered the world, thus setting the bar for every future baby to be born, ever. In fact, we might as well just close the book on having babies right now, because it’s doubtful anyone could ever top this reproductive miracle. No, seriously, this was some cutting edge, next-level baby-making.

Khloe Kardashian says her sister Kim’s new baby girl is doing fine, despite being born more than a month early. “I can not even begin 2describe the miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy &resting. We appreciate all of the love,” she tweeted.
