Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Respond to Backlash over Baby Name
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Now that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are officially parents, the high profile couple is being scrutinized for every single decision they make for their baby daughter. While many speculate Kim and Kris Jenner will most likely try to sell first photos of little North West to the highest bidder, most people still can’t get over the fact that the rapper and reality star actually named their daughter North West, especially since several months ago Kim laughed off the idea and said it was a silly name on “Late Night with Jay Leno.” Regardless, those close to the couple are claiming they aren’t happy with the criticism surrounding their baby’s name. So Kanye and Kim contacted TMZ to defend their choice. The website reports:
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were not inspired by a compass when they named their kid North … fact is, the name’s more inspirational than directional.
Sources close to K & K tell TMZ … they chose the name North because they see it as a metaphor for “up”, telling friends, “What’s North of North? Nothing.” Translation … nothing better.
We’re told the duo believes baby North is their highest point together as a couple … the pinnacle of the relationship … and they consider her their “North Star.”
There’s still not many details out about Kim and Kanye’s baby girl, and the couple still hasn’t released a statement just yet on the child’s birth. Either way, we’re sure they will reveal North West’s little face on a pretty grand scale, when they are ready to of course.
