*Forget Kaidence Donda. New reports from TMZ and People.com have Kanye West and Kim Kardashian naming their baby North – as in North West.
North was the name that first popped up in the rumor mill weeks ago. Still, nothing has been confirmed via the couple themselves.
Kardashian gave birth to her daughter on Saturday; she has not been spotted in, or out, of the hospital since then, although friends have stopped by and Tweeted their well-wishes.
Splash News honcho Gary Morgan predicts that in about a month, we’ll see the first photo of North West, who was born ahead of her due date. “We’ll see a big magazine set-up, nice and glossy,” he says.

*Kanye West has vacated his $4.5 million apartment in New York City as he prepares to move in with his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian in their new $9 million mansion in Bel Air, Calif.
Moving vans were spotted Monday morning (June 3) outside his bachelor pad in the city’s SoHo district.
The property includes a narrow entry corridor plastered in artistic design with an oversized statue at the end of the hallway. An estate agent told The New York Post: “It looks like an angel, or a little boy Cupid, and it’s on a raised platform. The apartment is amazing. If you like modern and sleek spaces, this is it.”
The master bedroom has a sink, positioned less than two meters from Kanye’s bed and a huge walk-in wardrobe.
The estate agent added: “It’s the height of a normal sink, but it’s a huge, long, granite object, probably about three meters long but only about one meter wide.”
*On Sunday night’s premiere of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kim shared with the world that she and her boyfriend Kanye West will be having a girl, due in late summer.
The revelation had some believing that such a public reveal was against the rapper’s wishes, based on his recent onstage tirade that he “ain’t no mother—-ing celebrity.”
Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian Odom opened up to MTV News about their decision to let cameras roll when she found out the sex, noting the normally private rapper and the spotlight-loving starlet discussed it all before it hit the air.
“Kim and Kanye, they both mutually agree on obviously what they want to have on the show or not,” she said earlier this week, ahead of the episode’s premiere. “And so I think everyone is curious and wants to know. And we have opened up so much of our lives, so I think it’s only natural. And I’m excited. I’m excited for everyone to find out so I can stop holding in information.”
The same day the season-eight premiere episode aired, Kim and her family started the countdown to Baby Kimye with a “garden chic” baby shower in L.A. Gossip lovers had already guessed that the couple was having a girl after an image of their very feminine music -box invite made its way online, featuring a ballerina dancing to Ye’s 2005 “Late Registration” track, “Hey Mama.”
*During his appearance on “The Tonight Show” Thursday, “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest, the executive producer of all things Kardashian on E!, revealed just how much of Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy will be shown on her reality show.
“Now, are you in there with the obstetrician?” Jay Leno asked, acting like he was holding a camera.
“Am I going to be in the room, with the zoom lens, shooting all of this to put on the air on E!?” Seacrest clarified. “I would not.”
But, he promised, “You will see her pregnancy on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” He added, “She’ll be about four and a half months in to her pregnancy once we start shooting for next season.”
Leno then asked if we’d see the conception.
Said Seacrest: “I think when you have Kanye on you should ask him that question.”

*An overseas tabloid claims to have the inside scoop on Kanye West’s plans for his baby with girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
The British issue of Grazia magazine says the rapper wants to buy a tricked out stroller for the baby — with a sound system installed.
”He’s got his eye on a pram with an inbuilt sound system and the 14-carat white gold diamond-encrusted pacifier that Jay-Z and Beyonce’s daughter has,” said the unnamed source.
As for the nursery, ”Kim and Kanye are looking to spend around £100,000,” said the source. ”Kanye wants it to be really cool, with 3D mirages on the walls and a lunar star show on the ceiling.
In contrast, Kim wants to give the baby a ”regal style” upbringing and is basing many of her decisions on those made by Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge – formerly known as Kate Middleton – who are also expecting their first child.
”As soon as Kim heard that Kate had bought a £5,000 crib and pram, she went ahead and ordered the same,” said the source. ”She loves Kate and considers her own family ‘American royalty’. The fact they’re due around the same time got her even more excited.”
