Did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West name their baby Bear West?

Since there hasn’t been an official name announcement, some fans went back and took a closer look at Kardashian’s social media posts… and guess what? They think Kardashian dropped a huge hint about the baby’s name. It was in front of our faces the whole time, it seems.

Check out Kardashian’s posts about her recent shower ahead of their baby’s arrival via surrogate, where the reality star seemed to drop an interesting emoji that was previously overlooked but now looks like it was a clue all along: a teddy bear emoji.

Do Kardashian’s social media posts mean anything?

At first glance, it seemed that Kardashian was just including a baby-themed emoji to represent the baby shower. But why not add a baby’s face or a bottle? It’s interesting that she chose one emoji: a teddy bear.

True enough, a teddy bear is associated with babies and young children, but a lot of fans believe that Kardashian was trying to say something… without saying it in so many words.

Could Kardashian and West have named their baby Bear or Cub, even, in a nod to West’s hometown teams, the Chicago Cubs or Chicago Bears? Maybe they named him Teddy?

‘He’s here and he’s perfect’

Kardashian had shared the baby news with fans, tweeting: “he’s here and he’s perfect!,” adding, “He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her.”

As for the baby shower posts, she wrote: “We celebrated our baby boy about a week ago and now he’s here! He’s so perfect! Here are some pics of my CBD baby shower. I was freaking out for nothing because he is the most calm and chill of all of my babies so far and everyone loves him so much.”

One of her friends, Nicole Williams, who attended the shower, commented with the same teddy bear emoji.

The happy Kardashian-West family

The same day that Kardashian announced the baby’s arrival, a source told PEOPLE: “They have had a name in mind, but wanted to meet the baby before they decided.” Last year, Kardashian and West announced Chicago’s name four days after her birth.

Kardashian and West reportedly feel “complete” after their fourth baby’s arrival, with a source telling ET: “Kim and Kanye feel complete with the addition of their newest son. Kim has always wanted a big family, and this expansion has filled her and Kanye with so much happiness. The couple is enjoying this special moment as a family and taking the time to fully embrace each new moment that comes with this new chapter.”

The source noted: “Kim and Kanye welcomed their son, and are over the moon with excitement. Both Kim and Kanye were there for the delivery, and some of the family was at the hospital for support. The couple is enjoying this special moment and is so happy to have this perfect addition to their family.”
