Since Kim Kardashian gave birth over the weekend, five weeks early, the world has been patiently waiting for the Kardashian clan to announce the name of her newborn daughter with Kanye West. But the wait might be over, according to a new report.
MediaTakeOut reported a nurse at the Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai hospital tending to Kardashian said the baby’s name is Kaidence Donda West. The nurse claimed family members “repeatedly mentioned” the name in Kardashian’s hospital room. The source also added the baby, whose middle name is a tribute to West’s late mother, is “gorgeous” and looks “just like her mama.” A friend of the Kardashian family also told E!
