While Kim Kardashian was connecting with her newborn daughter Chicago West, dad Kanye West was connecting four. That's right, during her new interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Kim revealed that Kanye was playing a popular children's game while she was in the delivery room with the surrogate!
When Ellen asked what it was like in the delivery room, Kim replied, "It was the best experience. The moment [the surrogate] was getting that epidural I was like 'thank god this is not me.' When the baby came out, I made Kourtney be in the room. We had a connecting room and Kanye was in there playing Connect Four with his friends and not really paying attention and I was like 'Kourtney, I need you to be here with me.' It's your sister, you need a support system." Kinda weird that Yeezy wasn't her support system, but it's possible the surrogate wasn't comfortable having a man all up in her business. Even Kim stood up by her head to preserve her privacy down there.
Of course, Ellen went back to the Connect Four thing, and Kim said, "It's his favorite game, he's the best at it, I'm so bad at it, and I'm really good at games despite what you've heard." What we've heard is that she was terrible on Family Feud (according to Steve Harvey), but we can wait to see that for ourselves.
Despite not having much to do with the delivery, Kanye had everything to do with naming the little angle. "We were gonna go with Jo, because my grandma's Mary Jo, or we were gonna go with Grace… and then we ended up with Chicago," explained Kim, saying it still messes with her that her third child doesn't have a one-syllable name. Still, she's happy the name has so much meaning for Ye. "That is a place that made him, and a place that he remembers his family from. He really wanted his mother's name [Donda], and I love that name too, I just didn't know if it's too much to live up to. I just felt like Chicago was cool and different." We think it's perfect, even with triple the syllables of her siblings.
