The couple’s first child, daughter North West, was born in 2013.

Speaking about possible names for their second child, Kardashian has previously said: “I don’t like South West… North will always, you know, be better and be more… she has a better direction”.

Meanwhile, West is currently thought to be working on his next album ‘SWISH’. Close collaborator Pusha T recently described the record as sounding “phenomenal”.
