Kim Kardashian reveals a new look at ‘Psalm Ye’ West, is that really his middle name?

World premiere of 'Avengers: Endgame'

I remember when Knox Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt were just babies and I innocently pointed out that they looked so much like Shiloh and isn’t it weird that those Jolie and Pitt genes always combine in such similar ways and people truly yelled at me and said I was dumb to point that out. But… I still think it’s a valid observation, because God knows, not ALL siblings look alike and sometimes you can have the same gene pool and siblings will look wildly different. So, yeah, it might sound obvious and derpy, but I think it’s interesting that all of the Kardashian-West kids look alike. Well, almost. I think Saint, Chicago and now Psalm West all look alike. North stands out a bit, but maybe that’s just because we’ve seen her features change as she gets older.

Kim posted the above photo on her social media yesterday. This is the second-ever photo of Psalm West, and first close-up look at his little face. Yeah, he reminds me strongly of Chicago and Saint’s baby photos. The notable thing here is that Kim posted the photo with this ID: “Psalm Ye.” People are freaking out. Is Psalm the only Kardashian-West child to have a MIDDLE name? North, Saint and Chicago are all single name, no middle name kids. Why is Psalm special? Is it because – no offense – his first name sucks? The middle name isn’t much better! I mean, it’s like they really want this poor child to hate his name completely. Psalm Ye West. CAN WE NOT.

Anyway, yes, Psalm is a cutie just like all the other kiddos and yes, those West genes always combine with the Kardashian genes the same way. They make very pretty babies. I hope Psalm Ye is the last one.

Also: the first cousins who were born within a few months of each other… they look alike too. And they’ll probably be getting a spinoff show too. Keeping Up with the Kousins.

    Adorable pictures.

    • Bella Bella says:

      That baby Psalm is the first one of their babies to look like Kim (the original Kim).

  2. runcmc says:

    Stormi and Chicago are practically twins, wow! True definitely looks similar but those two are identical.

    As for Psalm Ye… I wonder if he will like his name.

    • minx says:

      If I had to bet, I would bet no.

      • Kathryn says:

        Yeah I mean North West has grown on me I mean sounds like a model or singer or artists’ name. Saint West, same. Chicago will prob go by Chi and again, great name. But Psalm? I don’t even think the kid could get a nickname!

    • Moses says:

      Wasn’t his birth certificate already released? I could have sworn he doesn’t have a middle name. Psalm is a fucking terrible name though.

      Re: familial resemblance. My brother and sister look a ton alike. Same hair, eye color, both tall. I have different coloring and build, and I grew up wth a lot of “look what the milkman left behind” jokes. It’s one of those things that I find rude to point out—who the kid looks like or where they got this feature or that.

      • elimaeby says:

        I agree. My brother and sister are short and have dark hair and brown eyes like our Mom. I’m an extremely tall blonde with blue eyes. I’m basically our dad in female form. People point it out constantly and it used to really hurt my feelings. I’m the family weirdo, I get it.

      • AnnaKist says:

        I can relate to this. I am one of 5 children. Two of us took after our father – dark hair, dark eyes, light olive skin. Younger sister is similar, but with green eyes. Older brother looks more like our mum – paler skin, dark eyes and hair, but grows a red beard. Older sister… well… tiny little thing, dark red hair, pale skin, freckles, and blue-grey eyes. No, it wasn’t the milkman… She takes after the red-headed grandfather. Genes are weird, but fascinating. Also, we all have one first name, except for my late brother, who had the only middle name of the family. His middle name was the name of the town where he was born, after St Timothy.

  3. Erinn says:

    I took it as a play on the name to sound like Kanye because she thinks he looks like his dad.

  4. Char says:

    It will be Keeping Up With The Kids, in which we’ll see the rift between the kousins, kause all of them will be selling tea through Instagram and the effects of long exposure to fillings on 40 year old Kylie.

  5. ds says:

    Chicago is such a pretty baby… gosh. One thing I’ll give the K’s – they make me wanna have my own cute kid. But, I won’t just yet.

    • Seraphina says:

      @DS, that is how it begins!!! Don’t get sucked in. They are cute and that’s how the break is down. Stay strong!!!! I love my kids BUT I was so glad I waited until I knew I was ready. It’s a life time commitment and once they are born you come second. I was arc target the other day and saw a cute baby and thought, ohhhh maybe one more and then as if Jesus intervened one toddler started to cry and scream.

      • Alarmjaguar says:

        LOL so true, I get those urges to have a third and then I go see my sister who did and am reminded that two is a great number 😉

      • ds says:

        hahahah I can totally see that scene. Thanks for sharing it. I’m a bit worried that if I do wait too long I might be too old, not to give birth but you know, I wanna be there for my children the same my parents were there for me, like a support system, and not just ’till the end of their teens. You could say I’m in the seriously thinking about it stage 🙂

      • Seraphina says:

        @DS, I never think anyone is quite ready for the ride of a life time. They really should come with parenting manuals. You may never be “ready” but you’ll know when the time is right. And it sounds like your parents are a good example and there to help. Stay strong and DO NOT smell them after a bath. That’s another trap 😊

        @Alarmjaguar, yes two is great number. Once you’r outnumbered your goose is cooked.

  6. Seraphina says:

    OMG, they could pass for triplets if you don’t look carefully. So cute. And Keeping up with the Kousins…….. don’t give Chris any ideas. I’d like to spare future generations from their antics.

  7. The Crumpled Horn says:

    K and K do make adorable kids.

    But does anyone remember that video we saw the other day when Vogue or whoever it was took a tour through their home? God they are a dysfunctional couple. Like I would wager that they’re note even a proper couple, cohabiting together etc

    They just looked majorly pissed off at each other and ZERO chemistry. Weird.

  8. Rina says:

    Cute kiddos!

  9. grabbyhands says:

    Ahhh, there’s the money shot of the cousins that PMK had in mind when she hatched the family pregnancy story line. They produced cute kids, I’ll give them that.

    I think Kim gave the third kid the Ye middle name to appease her husband’s ego and give him a golden child to hold up when his new religious cult really gets rolling.

    I’m a cynical bitch this morning.

    • Wendy says:

      I’ve always thought they gender selected these “unexpected” pregnancies and I have no doubt the surrogate children were as well.
      I too am a cynical bitch when it comes to this family of lies.

      • HeyThere! says:

        I thought they were open about how they gender selected? Does anyone else remember?? Like they had a ‘female and a male’ and ‘used the last male one’ type of talks. I haven’t had coffee yet and I have a head cold. Blah.

      • ME says:

        From what I remember, they DID use gender selection on the last 3 kids.

  10. Lucy2 says:

    Cute baby and kids. The cousins on either end look identical.
    That name…

  11. HK9 says:

    Psalm Ye, woo chile the extraness. Great looking kids tho.

  12. olive says:

    North looks the most like Kanye – I think the younger three all take after Kim

    • Molly says:

      Yep. Kim was very, VERY pretty before she jacked with her face and body. North is adorable and seems like a funny, spunky kid, but she’s definitely all Kanye.

    • Mar says:

      Agree and that baby is Tristan all the way. That may be a good thing.

      • AryasMum says:

        She’s going to be the Khloe among her cousins. Tall, strong girl while her other female cousins are petite. Hopefully she will be praised and encouraged rather than made to feel she’s a giant.

      • behbin says:

        Idk, i feel bad for the little cutie. Already heard some comments about how shes the least ‘cute’ of the bunch or how it proves Khloes parentage since kim and kanyes kids are much more lightskinned. in addition to what @aryasmum said 🙁

    • Elisa says:

      Yes, especially Chicago, she is too cute!

  13. Chrissyms says:

    He is adorable. I could shade his name and his parents but I won’t. What a beautiful little baby.

  14. ME says:

    Really? I think North and Saint have very similar features (like Kanye) but Chicago and Psalm look very much alike to one another. I see ZERO Kanye in the last two kids.

    Also, I don’t think Chicago, True, or Stormi look a like at all. The competition between those three will be fierce as they get older (and among their mothers lol).

    • Kathryn says:

      Yeah I don’t either! I do wonder if surrogacy has any influence on that? North and Saint look very similar and Chicago and Psalm look very similar but it’s pretty definitive. It’s interesting!

      • ME says:

        Well they said they used Kim’s eggs and Kanye’s sperm…but it is very interesting to see the two kids born by gestational carrier look so much alike (and yet so different from the older 2 kids Kim carried). Gestational carriers can’t change the way a baby looks though because it’s not their biological child. The two youngest don’t look like Kanye at all.

    • Ani says:

      Yeah, im not convinced the last two are biologically Kanye’s tbh. Which might not be a bad thing…

  15. Original Jenns says:

    I’m thinking just a play on names. I don’t think Psalm has a middle name, she was just adding “Ye” to make it similar to Kanye, saying he looks like his dad. Which I don’t see, that face is all Kardashian right now.

  16. Dani says:

    They all have dumb names. I grew up hating my name because everyone called me Daniel instead of Danielle but now that I sit back and reflect, it could have been worse. Psalm!!!!!!

  17. MommaD says:

    Beautiful kiddos! The two on the ends look remotely similar if you just glance, but all in all, i get really offended when people say that about our black and mixed race kids, that they all look alike when clearly they all look very different. Like, just say they are three beautiful girls. This to me is like saying we all look alike because we have a shade of brown skin and black hair. True very clearly looks very different and really all three do.

    • ME says:

      They really don’t look a like at all. I don’t know how anyone could say they do. They all have very different features !

    • Smalltowngirl says:

      I think Stormi and Chicago have similar eyes and mouth but that True likes nothing like either of them.

    • Velvet says:

      They are very different looking kiddos. They are of an age so have the classic infant of a mammal look, big eyes, rounded forehead etc. They are also styled in a similar fashion BUT don’t actually look a like.

  18. 2lazy4username says:

    Chicago is legit the prettiest baby I have ever seen. ❤

  19. Kathryn says:

    I think Chicago’s middle name is Noel? At least that’s what Kim posted once. Maybe they’re not “actual” middle names and she just calls them that. Although it’s stupid does it drive anyone else crazy 3/4 kids have one syllable names except Chicago? LOL Surprised they didn’t just name her Chi.

  20. justmysay says:

    I didn’t find the first kids very cute (sorry…they’ve grown into it, though), but, i can also look back on baby pics of my own kids and say the same thing for certain ages. But, this baby is truly adorable.

  21. hogtowngooner says:

    The plastic koven sure do make adorable kids.

  22. Sparky says:

    Something to keep in mind: the Kardashians photoshop EVERYTHING including the kid pics. (I’m not saying that the kids are not cute,)

  23. Deedee says:

    Those little girls with baby sharks are just too cute, esp the one on the right, True, I think. Chicago looks just like her dad.
