[Updated 8 December 2015] It seems that Kim Kardashian has named her newborn son Saint West. E! News reports that the reason behind the name is because "he is a blessing" and "because she had such a difficult pregnancy."

Oh well, at least it isn't another direction (get it?)!

Kim Kardashian and rapper husband Kanye West welcomed a baby boy on Saturday, 5 December. Kim announced the good news on her website as well as on Twitter.

"Kanye and I welcome our baby boy!" said the message. "Mother and son are doing well."

This is the couple's second child together after daughter North West, who is now two. The birth of the new baby did not come without complications, as Kim underwent several medical procedures to help ensure a safe delivery.

"This weekend I checked into the hospital and underwent a procedure called an ECV (External Cephalic Version, or a Version), which is done to manually turn the baby from a breech position to a head-down position," she said earlier this month.

"They gave me an IV with medication to relax my uterus, and then three doctors attempted to work together to turn the baby," Kim added. "There was a risk that my water might break or the baby's heart rate could drop – in which case, an emergency C-section would then take place."

Yikes! We're glad that's over. Congratulations on the new addition to the family, Kimye! We can't wait to hear his name.
