Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced the birth of their third child on January 16th. A baby girl, weighing in at 7 pounds 6 ounces joined the famous family at 12:47a.m. Monday morning.
Kim and Kanye have since been overjoyed at their new arrival. Kanye even flashed a rare smile and friendly chat with the paparazzi the day of his daughter's birth. While West revealed they, "didn't have a name yet," he was very into a photographer's suggestion of the name Donda, after West's late mother. "Oh that's fire," Kanye exclaimed at the idea.
While many have speculated that Kimye's new addition will be named something beginning with an "E" or "W" since their children North, 4, and Saint, 2, share initials that are featured on a compass. "E" has been the fan favourite, as the initials of their children would read: N. West, S.West and E.West.
But last night, Kim shared an image that many fans believe to be a clue. A print of the Louis Vuitton logo with no caption or explanation from the social media icon. People were quick to speculate that Kim and Kanye's daughter was to be named Louis or possibly Vuitton after the famous atelier, but there's a simpler explanation.
Yesterday, Wednesday, was the same day that the artistic director of menswear at Louis Vuitton, Kim Jones, stepped down from his position. Kanye has been a huge supporter of both Jones and Louis Vuitton itself as he's referenced the brand in lyrics throughout his career. He is even nicknamed the "Louis Vuitton Don."
Kim strangely enough also shared Louis Vuitton printed recycling and garbage bins on Snapchat earlier this week. My guess? She's not naming her baby after the famous fashion house. But Kanye West might be stepping into some very chic Louis Vuitton shoes. Considering his huge role in fashion today thanks to the extremely successful Yeezy collaborations with Adidas, Kanye could very well fill the artistic director position...
What do you think? Are we looking at Louis West or a new job for Kanye?!
