Why is Saint West called Saint West? (Clue: Kim and Kanye have gone for the really obvious!)

It's, er, really obvious sadly...

It could be a trick question in a pub quiz. Why did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West call their second baby Saint? You’d probably wind yourself up thinking up something really complicated. But actually, it’s dead simple. Almost too simple for these two…

According to E! if you had already guessed, they gave their son the holy moniker because he was a “blessing”, with another insider saying Saint is their “miracle baby”.

We don’t think Kim would have given the same name to her pregnancy, which she’s admitted has been very difficult. When she was expecting the couple's first child North, Kim suffered really badly with sickness and it seems her pregnancy with Saint was worse. But, now all 8lb 1oz of him is here, all that is in the past.

Kim, Kanye and Saint left the hospital today and are believed to have gone straight to Kris Jenner’s house to get to know the latest addition to their family.

Yesterday, Khloe Kardashian gushed about her new nephew on a live stream with her fans, telling them: “My little nephew was born. He is so cute and so perfect.

“I love him and mommy and daddy are doing fantastic.”

We just want to see the first picture now to see if Saint is as, er, Saint-like as we hope he might…

Loose styles with good tailoring in luxe fabrics worked way better for Kim's pregnancy bod than bodycon stretchy. This coat dress looked super elegant.
