Kim Kardashian Reveals Reason for North West’s Name
Naming their baby North West was one of the most controversial things that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have ever done, but Kim recently revealed that it was thanks to Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour and Pharrell Williams that the couple finally decided on the unique moniker for their little girl. “I remember this is actually where we decided, finally, on North as a name for our baby girl,” Kardashian said while at the Mercer Hotel in NYC.
“It was a rumor in the press and we’d never really considered it seriously, at all, but Kanye and I were having lunch right over there at that table about a year ago and Pharrell came over to us and said ‘Oh, my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.’ I said ‘No we’re not, that’s just a rumor,'” she recalled to the mag.
“Then a little while later Anna Wintour came over and asked the same thing. She told us ‘North is a genius name,'” she continued. “Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck.” And that’s how one of the most famous babies in the world got her name.
North West is now 15 months old, and she’s a tiny fashionista and worldwide jet setter. She was pictured with her famous parents in the April 2014 issue of Vogue, in a secret photo shoot where it was revealed that she peed on her famous dad in the process. She was recently spotted sporting a fabulous YSL cross body bag that is valued at around $1500.
Just this past weekend, North joined her parents on a whirlwind trip to Australia, where she was able to attend her very first of her daddy’s concerts. Kim revealed to an Australian news station, “I took her out at the first show when we landed here in Australia to watch from the side,’ she said. It was the first time watching her daddy perform – she was mesmerized!”
However, the short trip wasn’t all fun and games. As it turns out, Kanye was hospitalized for a migraine and was given an MRI while in town. Luckily, Yeezus only spent a few hours in the hospital before being released and was good to go afterwards, even performing later that same night. We are glad things are okay, and can’t wait to see where baby North with be spotted next.
