Kim Kardashian shared her newborn baby daughter's name earlier this morning much to fans delight.

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

Kim and Kanye choose to go with a surrogate this time around after Kim had two very hard pregnancies with her children North and Saint. She appears to be a healthy baby, weighing 7 pounds, 6 ounces.

Kardashian West's fertilized egg had been implanted into a surrogate, who gave birth to the child.

Kardashian West ranks 47 on Forbes' celebrity 100 ranking of highest-paid entertainers with pretax earnings of $45.5 million.

Kardashian West said that not carrying the child herself was "so hard", but that the couple had an instant connection with her.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are now parents to three kids.

"Kanye and I are happy to announced the arrival of our attractive baby girl", Kardashian said in a statement.

Kim named her Chicago West and "Chi" for short.

We have to admit, "Chi West" is going to be a dope nickname - congrats, KimYe! Would you ever name your child after a city?

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.

It was reported back in June 2017 that the pair had hired a surrogate to give birth to their third child, after doctors warned of potential health risks if Kim carried her own child. "North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister". "Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true".

While there isn't an explanation behind the baby name yet, it's important to note that Kanye grew up in Chicago.
