Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly not living with the reality TV star's parents, despite reports claiming otherwise.

The new parents, who welcomed the birth of their first child on June 15, are said to be living in a private residence as they await the completion of renovations on their Bel Air mansion. On Thursday, Jenner, 56, confirmed that reports claiming Kardashian, 32, and West, 36, have been living in her Calabasas home with their daughter are false.

"They are living at a private residence," Jenner told Access Hollywood on June 27 before joking that she would "blast in" whenever she wants.

While the E! reality star and the rapper are yet to confirm any details about their baby, Jenner recently appeared to confirm that they had in fact named her, North West. On June 19, various gossip websites claimed the pair had even nicknamed their daughter "Nori" for short.

"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."

Kardashian's younger brother, Robert, also recently weighed in on the unique moniker, revealing that despite the mixed reactions, he is fond of it.

"I told Kim and Kanye this: I'm like, 'Yo, people are always going to talk, whether it's good or bad. There's always going to be the haters, but do what you guys feel," Rob told E! Producer, Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show Wednesday.

"Like, you know everyone's going to say, 'Oh, you're coming up with some weird celebrity, crazy name.' You know how it is," he continued adding "[But] North West, it sounds cool!. And North is the highest point, so it has a lot of meaning to it."

As fans anxiously await first photos of the couple's first child, reports suggest that it is very unlikely they will sell first photos to a tabloid magazine or any other publication.

"I know Kanye's not about to make money off that girl. Trust, that's not going to happen. Kanye isn't no pimp ... That's not in his character," a source previously told

"Whenever he does decide to bring his girl out in public, it won't be for money. It's going to be on his terms and in an appropriate place," the source added.
