KIM Kardashian’s religious baby name for newborn Psalm West has an extra special meaning for her husband Kanye after he had a “spiritual revival”.
The 38-year-old reality star announced what she and the rapper had called their new son late last night, one week after announcing his birth via surrogate.
Psalm is defined as a “sacred song or hymn”, known as a book from the Bible that comprises of religious verses.
They explained: “He and Kim do exactly what every couple does, where they each bring up names and the other one gives their feedback.
“It’s very traditional that way.
“Kanye would never just choose a name that Kim doesn’t like, or vice versa. The names are things that they mutually agree upon.”
The insider went on to add that both Kim and Kanye “read the Bible regularly now”, and that ‘Ye especially reads the Book of Pslams “over and over”.
They explained: “Psalms is the longest book in the Bible, but Kanye believes that there’s a lot of wisdom in them.
“He reads the Psalms a lot. He talks about the Psalms he loves. So on that level, the baby name isn’t a surprise.”
They added that the name is also a “reflection of where Kanye and Kim are spiritually”.
Earlier this year, Kanye was seen to embrace religion as he started weekly Sunday Service gatherings, which Kim previously claimed have become a “healing experience” for her husband.
As well as newborn Psalm, the pair are mum and dad to five-year-old North, three-year-old Saint, and baby Chicago, who they welcomed via surrogate in January 2018.
Chicago, nicknamed Chi, was named after the city where Kanye grew up in Illinois.
Speaking after Saint’s name was announced, a friend of the rapper revealed that Kanye didn’t have any worries about his children’s names standing out.
They explained at the time: “He told me: ‘Everyone freaks out but you can get used to any name.’
“Before you know it, Saint West will be normal because that’s just who he is.”
