Chicago - where Kanye West was raised - is the name of baby No. 3 with Kim Kardashian West.

Chicago West was born via surrogate on Monday (15Jan18), and joins the couple's daughter North, four, and son Saint, two.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have named their newborn daughter Chicago West, after the U.S. city where the rapper was raised. I was really pulling for Kim and Kanye to not give their child an actual name because that would really play into their aesthetic of minimalism.

Little Chicago was born on January 15, 2018, at 12:47 am and weighed in at 7lbs, 6oz.

The celebrity couple are renowned for their unusual choice of names for their offspring, who already include 4-year-old North, and 2-year-old Saint. She sent out a follow-up tweet saying "North, Saint & Chi".

Halep downs Davis in marathon but the Barty party is over
A ballboy at the Australian Open has narrowly avoided a disaster after a mix-up involving American Lauren Davis on Saturday. Halep saved three match points to hold to 11-11 and showed all her frustration to have to pause soon after.

As for Ms. Kardashian West, her ties to the city are less clear, though we do have this Instagram photo as proof that she has, in fact, visited.

And now that Chicago is here, it will be interesting to see if there will be more Chicagos turning up in the Social Security Administration's lists of popular baby names.

"Kanye has always been proud of his Chicago roots, and both he and Kim thought "Chi" the nickname was adorable".

@Mattresstagging posted: "Just don't think a name should sound like a neighborhood listed on a free map".

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

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West opt for odd baby name
Kardashian West said in a post on her app that "doctors said that it wasn't safe for my, or the baby's, health to carry my own". The name decision created a touch of buzz in Chicago and via web-based networking media, where the breeze jokes flew.

Kanye grew up in Chicago, Illinois, which had to have been the main inspiration behind naming her.

"I LOOOOOOOOOOVE her name hey Chi (shy)", she wrote on Twitter in response to Kim's announcement.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 37, opted for surrogacy for her third child due to health concerns involving pregnancy.
