And while the starry couple were quick to confirm the news that they are expecting a baby BOY, they’ve been very tight lipped on what they’ll call their little bundle of joy once he’s born in December.
Of course, we need not remind you that Kim and Kanye’s first child—two-year-old stylish tot, North West—has one of the most iconic names in Hollywood, and rumour was rife that the pair were looking to coordinate her unusual name with another 'direction'; the favourite being South.
Kim was swift to deny that baby no.2 was going to be named South, the reason being ‘North will always be better, she has a better direction’. Are we crazy or do you see what she means there?
However, that hasn’t stopped them from looking to other coordinates for baby name inspiration, as it’s been reported that Kim and Kanye have both settled on the name Easton.
Easton West. East ‘n’ West. Ah.
According to a source (shudders) who spoke to the MailOnline, Kim let the name slip to her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, and news spread from there. As the story goes, 38-year-old Kanye was dead cert on East, but Kim wasn’t so sure. So, as a compromise, the Keeping Up With The Kardshians star threw Easton into the mix.
Neither Kim or Kanye have commented on the rumours, which seem so zany but also ridiculously obvious to be true—just look at North.
We’ll have to wait until the baby is born at the end of the year to see what Kim and Kanye actually settle on but, one thing’s for sure, their name choice will make headlines regardless of any puns...
