Proud new parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West left the Cedars-Sinai hospital on 7 December, with their new baby boy, Saint ,in tow. The happy new family checked out on Monday afternoon, and were photographed leaving in a Range Rover with blacked out windows.
Kim, Kanye, two-year-old daughter North and newborn Saint will be staying with her mum Kris Jenner while their own home in Calabasas is being remodelled – fans will remember that the couple also stayed with Kris after the birth of their first child, North, in June 2013.
“They are so ecstatic,” a source told Us Weekly. “Kim and Kanye are both so happy he’s here and Nori (North) is already in love.”
Little Saint was born on 5 December in the same LA hospital where Lamar Odom has been staying since his near fatal overdose in October. Family members Kris, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian were all by Kim’s side when she went into labour.
Two days later, the reality star announced that they have named their son Saint West. “To our fans, Saint West, 12.05.15. 8 pounds, 1 ounce,” she wrote on her website and app on Monday.
According to E! News, Kim’s highly-publicised, difficult pregnancy was one of the biggest influences in choosing her son’s unique moniker.
An insider said the couple went with Saint because it is akin to saying he is “a blessing”, especially “because she had such a difficult pregnancy”.
One of the very first people to meet baby Saint was proud auntie Khloe, and she couldn’t help but gush about the new arrival during a live stream with her fans at the weekend.
“My little nephew was born. He is so cute and perfect,” she revealed. “I love him. And mummy and daddy are doing fantastic.”
