LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - And the baby's name is... Chicago West.

Kim Kardashian's new baby daughter with rapper husband Kanye West has been named Chicago, the reality star announced on her app on Friday (Jan 19).

The baby girl was born to a surrogate on Monday, a third child for the celebrity couple.

Kardashian revealed the name, without explanation, in a simple update to the birth announcement she made earlier this week.

West, 40, was born in Atlanta and raised in Chicago.

Kardashian, 37, and West are already parents to North, four, and Saint, two.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality and social media star has said she decided to use a surrogate after doctors warned of serious health risks if she became pregnant again.
