Kim Kardashian, Kanye West name their baby boy Psalm, share first picture on Instagram

New York:To messages of support and puzzlement, Kim Kardashian West has, seemingly, revealed her newborn’s name: Psalm West.

The beauty mogul, reality star, law student and wife of Kanye West took to her social streams to share the first look at their fourth child, born 9 May. A photo of the boy nestled in a crib came in the form of a text message screen grab with her husband that called it a “Beautiful Mother’s Day” and said the couple are “blessed beyond measure.”

The baby is their second boy and the second to be born via surrogate because of a potentially life-threatening medical condition that complicated Kardashian West’s two pregnancies.

It's not clear what inspired the name Psalm, a well-known book in the Bible. But Kanye has made his interest in religion known recently, even hosting a Sunday service at Coachella this year that critics said was more about self-promotion than anything else.

Kim, 38, and Kanye, 41, have been married since 2014 and have three other children: North, 5; Saint, 3; and Chicago, 1.

Andor: Star Wars series lets go of Skywalker baggage — and is all the better for it

Andor is still Star Wars, but it doesn’t feel overly regulated by the franchise’s rulebook. Not being tied to all the Skywalker baggage allows the show to flex its muscles a little, just when the franchise had started to atrophy.
