Kim Kardashian is not one to keep things private, but that isn't necessarily a rule that she extends to her children. We've been dying to see a picture of Kim and Kanye's new baby and we've finally been blessed with the pic. They kept us waiting, but it was definitely worth it.
Kim now shares four children with her husband, Kanye West; their fourth child, Psalm, was born via surrogate four weeks ago. Since Psalm's birth we, the general public, have patiently waited for a glimpse of the new addition to the Kardashian-West brood.
Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is over.
The Kardashian-West clan has grown!

Each of the Kardashian-West kids have symbolic names.
via: Getty ImagesThere's a reason that North West is called North. I was born in the North West, and when I first heard that Kim and Kanye had called their newborn thus, my first thought was that it was some kind of ironic wordplay. Like, okay my husband's last name is "West," what can I do with that... "Slow West?" No. "Will (d) West?" Too much of a stretch... "North West?" Haha, okay yeah sure. Funnily enough, it didn't actually happen like that.
North West was not named for any geographical reasons.

I agree, Kris... I didn't doubt it for a second (well...).
Saint West was the first of the more biblical baby names.
Kanye West's Sunday Services.
via: Getty ImagesFor anyone wondering whether West had started his own church, it's not quite like that. Kanye has been offering a kind of service at his home that has been described as "a concert series inspired by the church". These concerts happen every Sunday and have spread as far as Coachella in recent months. But the service's biggest exposure is quite clearly through its documentation on Instagram. All of the Kardashian brood, who collectively have millions and millions of followers, have attended Kanye's Sunday Service and shared the "Lord's Message" with their Insta followers.
You might not have known it, but the Kardashian's are quite a religious bunch.
via: Getty ImagesDid you know that Kris Jenner has been the co-owner of the California Community Church since 2010? That's right, although none of the Kardashian/Jenner brood still attend the CCC service, momager, Kris still owns it.
The Kardashian/Jenner religious split.
What makes the Vous service so special?Esquire, "Ninety-six percent of the kids who attend during the week are below the poverty line". But, on the weekend, you've got the likes of Bieber, Di Caprio and, until late Kim, Kanye, and Kourtney visiting. Weird eh?
Pastor Rich is the original Christian hipster.
How come Kylie and Kendall weren't that keen on Vous?

The Kardashian-Wests are good friends with the Wilkersons.
If anything has made Kim and Kanye more religious it's becoming parents.
Kim K made no secret of her fertility issues.
via: Getty ImagesIn the tenth series of Keeping up with The Kardashians, Kim's struggle to conceive was well documented. On the decision to share her private pregnancy battle Kim has said: “I didn’t know that I was going to be so open with [my fertility challenges]. But meeting people at my fertility doctor’s office who are going through the same things I’m going through, I thought, ‘Why not share my story?’ It’s been really emotional".
The birth of baby "Saint West".
Preparation since day 1.
President North West?It could happen. Or we could be looking at having a President Saint West, President Chicago, President Psalm? They're going to be the next Kennedys - without all the assassination business, of course...
President Kanye West.
via: Getty Images.There was news circulating some time ago that Kanye West would run for the presidency. Speaking in 2018 in a radio interview with Power 92 Chicago's DJ Pharris, West said "If I decide to do it, it will be done, I’m not going to try," before adding, “Yes, 100 percent it could happen… 2024".
Pastor and President?
via: Getty Images.It's not unfair to say that Kanye West has his fingers in a few pies over the years, but I'd argue that there's nothing wrong with having big ideas. Some of Kanye's ideas aren't so bad either. When Kanye first took to discussing his Presidential ambitions at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. He stated: “One of my main things once I’m president is the medical industry. I’m going to make sure that the medical industry flourishes".
Kanye doesn't exactly sound like a power hungry monster.
via: Getty ImagesKanye's vision to improve medical services in the United States is a noble one. West has come under scrutiny in the past, though, for seeming to show support for President Trump by wearing one of the infamous "Make America Great Again" caps.
A self-described centralist.
via: Getty ImagesKanye raised a few eyebrows for wearing the Trump cap, mostly because Donald Trump is been considered a bit of a racist. Being an African-American hip-hop artist from Chicago, Kanye doesn't exactly fit the bill for a stereotypical Trump supporter.
One race, one people, one civilization.
via: Getty ImagesSpeaking about the controversy that he faced for showing support to Trump, Kanye said: "For someone to say you can't ride with both sides... it's like a modern idea of gang banging or something," he said. "Even red or blue — it's still red or blue. It's divisions. We don't need to think in divisions. We need to think in arms because we're actually one race, one people, one civilization". Kanye showed support for both Trump and Bernie Sanders during the election and said that he would run as a centralist is he ever was to.
Putting it all on hold to run a family.

The secret name of baby Chicago.

"Noel is my middle name and it’s not a one syllable name but it’s short. Like I love the name Noel. Kanye does not. So I unofficially instagrammed Chi Noel and I was like I’m doing this because I want her middle name to be Noel". What's your kid's Instagram name? Do you think that Psalm will have a cyber-name, too? So many questions... but let's get on to that burning one! Let's check out cute baby psalm in his first official Insta debut!
