Last week, Kardashian-Jenner matriarch, Kris Jenner, appeared on the Ellen Show and was hit with the shocking news that she had a new grandchild arriving. Hours later, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West announced the birth of a baby boy via surrogate. In the week that has followed, there has been much speculation about what the most famous couple in pop culture would choose as the name of their new baby. Well, it looks like we now have the answer.
On Friday, Kim posted a screenshot of a text conversation with Kanye to Instagram. In it, West sent her a photo of a swaddled, newborn baby resting in a cradle. Below the picture, he sent her a poem of sorts,
Beautiful Mother’s Day

He, of course, brought the event to Coachella in April.
