Twitter Rushes to Pick Name for Kanye and Kim’s New Son

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West arrive on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards, Aug. 30, 2015, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

It's official. Thirty-five-year-old reality star Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West announced the birth of their son on Saturday.

The social media maven confirmed the news on her blog in a post that read, “Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed the arrival of their son this morning. Mother and son are doing well.” She also sent out a tweet that simply read: “He’s here!”


What’s funny is that just a day earlier Kardashian tweeted a photo of her belly, writing, “Ready whenever you are lol.”

The boy is the second child for the celebrity couple, who welcomed their first in June 2013. They have not yet announced his name. But after naming their daughter North, some Twitter users weighed in with suggestions. 


Easton, a play off North, is just one suggestion that was trending Saturday on Twitter. But during a recent appearance on Ellen, Kardashian confessed that while she likes the name Easton, her husband does not.


What do you think the name should be? Sound off in comments.
