Kris Jenner has spoken out about daughter Kim Kardashian‘s decision to name her baby daughter North. While many thought that new dad Kanye West was behind the unusual moniker, Kris has revealed that it was a “joint decision”.
“That’s what I think. I think that they did it together, for sure,” she told HuffPost Live.

The Kardashian matriarch also joked about the fact that her new granddaughter doesn’t have a name beginning with the letter K — in keeping with the family tradition.
“I stayed out of that one,” she said. “I did the same thing with Kourtney, when she named Mason and Penelope. I thought, ‘You know what No-one gave me any advice on baby names.
“And a lot of people won’t give their baby name because they don’t want anybody to have any negative energy. Like, if you say, ‘I’m going to name my baby Kourtney with a K’, I didn’t want anybody to say, ‘No you’re not’, or ‘That’s horrible’.
“You just want to do your thing and then once that baby’s named you think, ‘That is so official — no-one is ever going back on that.”
Kris went on to say that she thinks Kim and Kanye’s baby, who was born prematurely on 15th June, really suits the name North.

“When a baby’s born and you give it a name and you’re really sure about it, that’s just going to be that baby’s energy. So I’m excited,” she said.
Earlier this week, Kris also spoke about when the world would finally get its first glimpse of the new addition.
Speaking to Matt Lauer, she coyly refused to confirm if a decision had been made.
“I think you’re just going to have to wait and see and tune, because I am not sure if that is going to happen,” said Kris, when asked if North would appear on her grandmother’s new talk show, Kris, scheduled to premiere in mid-July.
Matt pressed Kris further on the matter, saying, “Tell me right now it will not happen, you will not be showing first-time baby photos the first week of your show.”
“I won’t tell you it won’t happen,” she said, holding her ground. “Give you a little something to think about. You never know who is going to show up.”
