Psalm West’s arrival was announced live on the Ellen Degeneres show where Kris Jenner was the guest along with her daughter, Kourtney Kardashian, and her grandchildren, Mason, Penelope, and Reign. The family members were sitting on stage when Kourtney revealed that the surrogate had gone into labor and Kim Kardashian was by her side at that very instant. With that eventful announcement of a very under wraps pregnancy, the way the baby was looked after and hidden from the press thereafter was no surprise. Only one photo of Psalm West made it to the light of day, that too, not one up close of the child’s actual face. Just a few hours ago, Kim Kardashian West shared a photograph of her almost a month old baby boy, Psalm West, on her official Facebook and Instagram pages for fans to see.
Psalm West was welcomed via surrogacy as the fourth child to the Kim and Kanye West family unit after their first daughter North West, then son Saint West, then daughter Chicago West, and now son Psalm West. Being a family that is heavily hoarded and surrounded by press and media, the two kept their new little bundle of joy very close and tight, away from all flashing cameras and news headlines.
This morning, however, Kim shared the photo of her four week old son, captioning it “Psalm Ye.”
Celebrities bombarded the photograph on Instagram with love filled comments.
Close family friend, Khadijah Haqq McCray, commented “Wow look at him.” Her sister, Malika Haqq, also commented on the post, saying “Sweetest.” Kim’s favorite and ever so personal make up artist, Mario, commented three hearts and Jeff Leatham, the Kardashians’ favorite flower whisperer, commented three red ones as well.
Many may have noticed that little Psalm West looks almost like a carbon copy of Chicago West in this photo. The two share many common features, especially their eyes.
On Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ latest episode, Kim joked about how Psalm West was the smallest baby in the family yet. She laughed saying that God kept all the big babies for her to deliver and the smaller ones for the surrogate. Even on the show, Psalm west was not mentioned as much. In real life, he’s been kept away from press except for the birth announcement, the name announcement, and the news that leaked out about how Kim Kardashian filed a motion to trademark Psalm West’s name legally for any products, slogans, merchandise, and future business ventures that her son may take up when he gets older under his copyright protected name.
More on the baby, we do know that Kim Kardashian has been gushing over how adorable and perfect he is. On announcing his birth, she said to her social media followers that “He’s here and he’s perfect!” She shared this as a caption under a photo of her new born son who was welcomed via a surrogate, weighing in at a healthy 6 pounds and nine ounces. This announcement wasn’t made as soon as the baby arrived, but just over a week later on the 17th of May, along with the official announcement of the baby’s name as well.
Kim Kardashian’s announcement post wasn’t an actual photo, but a screenshot of the actual photo being sent to her in a text conversation from her rapper husband, Kanye West. Their son, Psalm West, is pictured sleeping in his crib soundly in the photograph. On this, she wrote “Beautiful Mother’s Day with the arrival of our fourth child we are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need.” She also added the baby’s official name to the post, adding the words “Psalm West” to the caption.
