Kim & Kanye Reveal Name of Their Third Child, But It's Not Pronounced the Way You Think

North West, Saint West, and... Chicago West!

Kim Kardashian took to Twitter this afternoon to announce the name of their daughter who was born earlier this week

She linked to a page on her website that simply read the name and included details about Chicago's exact birth time and weight.

Though Kim or Kanye haven't explained their reasoning for the name, it likely has to do with Chicago being where Kanye grew up.

Kim tweeted again after the announcement, including a shortened version of "Chicago," as just "Chi."

She also retweeted a tweet about the pronunciation of the nickname. 

Welcome to the family, Chicago!
