Kris Jenner has attempted to explain the strange name of her newest grandchild, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's 1-week-old daughter North West. In an interview on The View to promote her upcoming talk show Kris, Jenner said Kim and Kanye didn’t pick the name North just because of Kanye’s last name.
“The way [Kim] explained it to me was that North means highest power, and she says that North is their highest point together and I thought that was really sweet,” she explained.
“It's North West, but you don't walk around calling somebody, ‘Hi North West.’ It's just North,” she said, adding that Kim and Kanye are considering a nickname for the baby. Jenner said she does not know “what they’ve decided on.”
As for her opinion on the name, Jenner said she is “pro-North, absolutely.”
Kim, 32, gave birth to North on Saturday, June 15. Although North was born about 5 weeks early and weighed just 4 lbs. 15 oz, she is healthy and has already left the hospital. Kim and Kanye have yet to speak publicly about her birth. The new family is said to be living at Jenner’s home while their own $9 million Bel Air mansion is renovated.
