This week, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced that they welcomed the birth of their third child into the world via a surrogate. Last year, Kim Kardashian revealed she was expecting a child via surrogacy because she suffers from a rare condition called placenta accreta. She opened up in an interview a few years ago saying:
I had so many complications. I had this condition called placenta accreta. There were a couple little operations to fix all that so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again.
Kim tried doing IVF before getting pregnant with her second child, Saint, but the embryo didn’t take. So, for months, she was nervous that the surrogacy would also not work out the way in which she wanted. But, she and Kanye were blessed with a baby girl–which she announced on her website this week.

Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.

Fans were obviously asking one thing and one thing only: what did Kim and Kanye decide to name their third child? Of course, there was speculation.
Please let Kim and Kanye name their new baby something totally normal. These are my kids: North, Saint, and Janet. Delightful juxtaposition.

Kylie just released a new eyeshadow pallet today “blue honey”, the same day that Kim and Kanye welcomed their new baby girl. And I think Kylie dropped a hint that she was the surrogate and the baby’s name is Honey West.
