Baby North was born on June 15 a reported five weeks before her due date in July. While the couple haven't confirmed the baby's name multiple sources have reported it's baby North, with TMZ producing a copy of the baby's birth certificate from the Cedars Sinai Medical Centre where Kim gave birth.

According to sources close to the showbiz couple have claimed they see North as a metaphor for "up" reportedly telling friends: "What's North of North? Nothing."
