Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their fourth child, a son named Psalm, via surrogate on Friday, May 10. The beauty mogul has kept mum about the latest addition to her family since then, but she broke her silence on Monday, June 10, posting a photo of baby Psalm to Instagram.
“Psalm Ye,” she captioned the pic, which shows baby Psalm sleeping in an adorable white onesie. So this means, presumably, that Psalm’s middle name is “Ye,” a.k.a the nickname of his famous rapper father.
Check out the cute snap for yourself, below:
Kardashian previously posted a photo of Psalm sleeping in his crib, but she deleted it after critics pointed out that it’s unsafe to put so many soft items in a newborn’s sleeping area. (According to Today, Psalm’s crib in the photo was adorned with padded bumpers and blankets, among other loose items.)
Psalm is the second child Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have welcomed via surrogate. Kardashian turned to this option after she developed a condition called placenta accreta following the birth of her son, Saint. (For those who don’t know, placenta accreta happens when the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall.)
“My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails,” Kardashian wrote in her blog about the condition. “My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before. My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that—it was the most painful experience of my life! They gave me a second epidural but we were racing against time, so I just had to deal.”
She’s also opened up about her decision to use surrogate, knocking critics who say it’s the easier alternative to naturally conceiving. “Anyone that says or thinks it is just the easy way out is just completely wrong,” she told Entertainment Tonight.”I think it is so much harder to go through it this way, because you are not really in control.”
