Kim Kardashian Shared a New Photo of Son Psalm & May Have Revealed His Middle Name

Kim Kardashian West has given us a closer look at her adorable four-week-old son Psalm!

In an Instagram post on Monday, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared the latest photo of her newborn son Psalm, whom she and husband Kanye West welcomed via surrogate on May 9.


“Psalm Ye,” Kardashian West captioned the sweet photo showing the baby boy’s full face, leading some fans to speculate that the mother of four may have revealed her newest son’s middle name.

For her three other children — North, 6 this month, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 16 months — Kardashian West intentionally did not pick a middle name, Cosmopolitan reports. So is “Ye” Psalm’s middle name? The name is not listed on his birth certificate, according to TMZ, so perhaps it is a nickname?


The reality star first shared a picture of her newborn son on May 17, where she revealed the name she and West had chosen, along with a message West had sent to her for Mother’s Day, PEOPLE reports.


“Beautiful Mother’s Day with the arrival of our fourth child. We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need,” the message read.


In the picture, Psalm was seen swaddled in blankets and resting in a crib.


Kardashian-Jenner matriarch and momager Kris Jenner revealed the meaning behind her newest grandchild’s name following his birth, explaining to Entertainment Tonight that “the inspiration was the Book of Psalms in the Bible.”

“I think it’s just a wonderful way to celebrate how they feel. And he’s such a blessing, so it’s perfect,” Jenner added.

Whether “Ye” is Psalm’s middle name or not, he is just too adorable!
