Kim Kardashian will not name her second child South West, revealing the tidbit on NPR’s “Wait, Wait ... Don’t Tell Me” on Saturday.

Yes, the reality star was on NPR to talk seriously about her book of selfies called “Selfish” on the comedy show. We’re still processing that one too. 

The fashionista-turned-entrepreneur announced on the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” season finale that she and rapper-husband Kanye West are expecting their second child. Since they named their firstborn daughter North, the South moniker seemed like the most natural progression. Though maybe not for Kardashian.

“I don’t like South West, though, because that’s like -- you know, North will always, you know, be better... And be more -- she has a better direction,” the 34-year-old said. 


“I mean, everyone keeps on saying South, and I think it’s so stupid.... Stupidest thing ever and just ridiculous,” she added.

Incidentally, before giving birth to North, she wrote off that name too. So, ridiculous or not, South could well still be on the table.

Kardashian also cleared up other rumors swirling about her pregnancy, namely that the couple is expecting a son and/or twins.

“We actually haven’t told anyone the sex. So I heard that we’re having a boy. I heard that we’re having twins. I heard that I’m not even carrying my own baby. I’ve heard so many things and most of that information is not true,” she said.


Last week, Kardashian threw her husband a lavish 37th birthday party by renting out the Staples Center so he and his pals could play a friendly game of basketball. Apparently, West has been asking for a home with a basketball court for two years, and while Kardashian surprised him with building one in their backyard, it wasn’t going to be ready by his birthday, she said. 

“I thought well, I have to do something basketball-oriented. And so I thought why not? Because it’s so normal, I get it, [I] rented out the entire Staples Center to play a game of basketball with him and just his best guy friends. And then I invited a couple NBA players and it was so much fun,” she said. 

“And what was so cool was that they had the guys filming it, so they would do the replays -- like, everything was like a real NBA game, and the real refs and cheerleaders. It was really so special -- such a good memory.”

Thankfully, the panelists insisted that she could have bought him a plastic basketball nets that hangs on a door frame instead.
