Update, 3 p.m.: In defiance of the internet, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their newborn son not Easton, not Robert (kinda), and certainly not South. 

It's Saint—Saint Robert West. 

Little Saint's mom took to her official website (opens in new tab) Monday to make the announcement, while his grandma began brokering an ad campaign with Hedi Slimane to be shot in 2022. Just kidding. But really. 

Original story, 10 a.m.: The infant known only as "the Kimye baby" is one step closer to becoming a fully actualized person now that two out of his three names are in place.

A source tells Hollywood Life (opens in new tab) that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have given their newborn son (opens in new tab) an R for Robert after Kardashian's late father, who, incidentally, is being played by David Schwimmer in the new O.J. Simpson biopic (opens in new tab). No word yet on the *first* name, but in case Twitter turns out to be wrong about Easton (opens in new tab), at least the kid has a fallback.
