Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly named their daughter North West, and Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner, recently explained the reason behind the unique moniker.
During an interview on daytime talk show "The View," Jenner, 56, was asked about her newest grandchild. Kardashian, 32, and West, 36, welcomed the birth of their first child on June 15, five weeks ahead of her scheduled due date.
"I love the name North. I'm pro North, absolutely, the way she explained it to me was that North means highest power," Jenner explained on the show. "And she says North is their highest point together, and I thought that was really sweet."
An insider gave a similar explanation for the name Monday, just days after TMZ.com allegedly obtained a copy of the baby's birth certificate.
"What's North of North? Nothing," a source told TMZ while revealing that the couple sees their daughter's name as a metaphor for "up."
The couple, who have dated for over one year, are rumored to be calling their baby girl Nori for short. Jenner, who remained tight-lipped about any other details, would not confirm this.
"I think they [have a nickname]," Kris said. "I don't know what they've decided on."
Jenner's interview follows reports claiming Kardashian's younger brother, Rob, is yet to meet his niece. The sock designer allegedly made efforts to meet Kardashian's son, but was turned away.
"I actually tried to go over to see her. She just wanted to have calm, peace … just my mom and her," Rob allegedly told E! News "It was all good, though."
One person who was lucky enough to meet the newborn is Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, it has been claimed.
"I have seen a lot of babies, and a baby represents the love between the people and that meant more to me and the love that Kim was showing to Kanye," Wozniak reportedly told Piers Morgan.
Wozniak reportedly received an exclusive invitation from Kardashian "just because [Kanye] was interested in technology and companies, she, as a birthday present, she had me come up there to meet him," he explained.
