For free, you can learn the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s new daughter (Chicago, or Chi for short), reportedly born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
But if you want to know “The Truth About My Pregnancy Decision” via Kim’s website, you’ll have to ante up $24.99 a year (“You save 30% — Renews annually”) or $2.99 a month (“Renews monthly”).
Now that the third child of the reality TV stars is known, the speculation begins on other fronts.
Bustle.com says: “What is Chicago West’s middle name? Does Chicago West even have a middle name? Will she ever? The short answer to all of the above is ‘probably not,’ although there’s truly no way to know anything except what the Kardashian-West clan chooses to tell us.”
EliteDaily says: “The next step is to make sure we pronounce it correctly. Shee? Shy? Chai latte? (Well, probably just chai, but chai latte would be a cute pet name for a baby, TBH.)”
And Romper.com sorts out the stats: “Baby Chi’s name definitely falls into the category of unique celebrity baby names, considering Baby Center data shows that only four babies out of every million born in the United States in 2015 were named Chicago.
“(The name seems to have peaked in 1996, when 23 out every 1 million babies was named Chicago. Something tells me, though, that the number of babies named Chicago in 2017 will mysteriously and suddenly eclipse that number.)”
Meanwhile, a source reportedly confirmed the hometown meaning of the name to E! News on Friday.
“Kanye came up with the name and Kim loved it the significance behind the name,” the source reportedly told E! News. Another unnamed source told E! News that West wanted to honor both his hometown and his mom, whom he was close to and who died in 2007.”

One half of Twitter is talking about Kanye and Kim’s new baby, Chicago West, and the other half of Twitter is hyperventilating over the looming government shutdown.
What a time to be alive.
