Time. Does. Fly. Young Chicago West, second youngest of the Kardashian West children, has just turned two!
Happy Birthday Chicago!
Kim took to Instagram to wish her daughter a happy birthday in a very adorable message.
“Happy Birthday my sweet baby girl Chicago!!! I can’t believe you are already 2! You bring so much joy into our lives. I love watching you grow every day! My smart, sassy and silly girl! Mommy loves you forever!”
The wee gal — who is the spitting image of her famous mum, Kim Kardashian West — was the first child born with assistance from a gestational carrier. She came out cute as a button.
“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” Kim said announcing Chi’s safe arrival two years ago.
“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”
Kim and Kanye have since added baby Psalm to their clan, also thanks to a gestational carrier.
Chicago was born on 15 January 2018 and named after the city that her daddy, performing artist Kanye West, was raised in. Her mum promptly shortened the moniker to the one syllabled ‘Chi’ – pronounced to rhyme with ‘shy’.
No flow in Chicago?
Kim later said she was actually not completely sold on the name and it had been a really tricky one to nut out.
“Chicago just looks really long to me and doesn’t flow, so I call her Chi. That’s it, she can decide later if she wants to be called Chicago or Chi … When she first came out I was like ‘what do we name her?’ It was the hardest decision ever and I could not think of a name.”
Today Kim shared two birthday photos of Chi dressed in the family’s favourite ‘uniform’ of athleisure-meets-streetwear and Yeezy trainers (above).
No details have emerged regarding what the high profile couple are planning for Chi’s birthday party. Last year Kim threw her an amazing Alice in Wonderland bash, so we figure it will be something equally extra.
