6 Quick Facts About Saint West

2. Saint is the World’s Most Famous Baby
Even before his birth, Saint West was already making waves on social media platforms and like his older sister North, he is already a force to reckon with.
Saint West became popular even before his birth in 2015, however, his fame became more obvious after his mother announced him on her immensely popular Instagram account on Monday, December 7, 2015. About a month after his birth, the social media grew hot as Kim shared her son’s very first picture on her platforms. Since then, a lot of pictures of Saint West have been shared by both Kim and Kayne who seem dedicated to updating their fans about the toddler’s activities.
As the son of a successful and much-loved rapper, songwriter, record producer, fashion designer and entrepreneur, the news about Saint’s coming overwhelmed a large number of the reality star’s fans who were initially worried following his wife’s failed attempt to conceive after the birth of their first child, North. Saint’s mother, Kim Kardashian, is a reality star, socialite, actress, businesswoman and a model.
3. Saint West was Born 20 Days Before his Due Date
Kim was induced early before her due date due to medical concerns regarding her experience during her pregnancy with North West. Saint was apparently born at 36 weeks but was said to have weighed 8 pounds at birth. He was confirmed healthy despite being born before his due date.
4. Saint was Born with a Silver Spoon
Ever since his birth, Saint West, even as a child has been highly criticised by fans of his celebrity parent. Chief among the first criticism against him was his parent’s use of a $23,000 diaper bag for him. This was revealed by Hollywood Life which also stated that the said bag was Kim’s very first Birkin but that it was too large for the child to use. More so, Kim was in June 2017 criticised for posting a picture of Saint in a car seat facing forward. This infuriated most of her fans who criticised her for faulting the Califonia law which says children below the age of two must not be seated in the front-facing car seat unless they are at least 40 inches tall or they weigh at least 40 lbs. Saint will soon join his sister to sign contracts worth millions of dollars with companies who would want him on covers of newspapers, magazines, and even billboards.
5. North Apparently Dislikes her Brother, Saint
This is according to Saint’s mother, Kim who revealed during an interview on Live with Kelly & Ryan, that North beats her younger brother and would often make him cry. She also apparently does not like to include him in her play time. But what more could sibling rivalry look like right?
6. Saint has a Younger Sister Named Chicago West
Saint, the son of the reality-TV star Kim Kardashian and her rapper husband, Kanye West, now has a younger sister named Chicago. The little girl was born on January 15, 2018, through a gestational carrier following a health warning to Kardashian of potential health complications if she becomes pregnant again.
Kim Kardashian suffered from placenta accreta while pregnant with North and Saint. This condition which affects about 5% of women in the world occurs when the placenta grows on the wall of the womb thereby making it impossible to easily detach when giving birth. As for Kardashian and West, the Doctor advised them against having another child except through Surrogacy which they agreed to and found a San Diego mom in her late 20s” to carry the child. The unnamed woman was reportedly paid $45,000 made in 10, $4,500 monthly instalments and the agency they got her from was paid a deposit of around $70,000. Although this is not yet confirmed, there are also rumours that the surrogate is pregnant again with twins for Kardashian and her rapper husband.
