Kanye and Kim Release First Photo of Their Son Saint West to Public
There he is - Saint West. The first photo of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's son has finally been released to the public, and it sure is an adorable one.
This morning (Feb. 22) Kim posted the above picture of Saint to her website with the message, "Today is my dad's birthday. I know there's nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren. So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all."
The couple has been seen out with their daughter North West, who turns three this year, plenty of times, but they've never shown their new son Saint in public, either to paparazzi or hungry social media fans. Now the official Kanye West fan site TeamKanyeDaily has secured a photo of the newest West family member, looking cozy as hell to boot.
Yeezy mentions his newborn son, who was born on December 5, 2015, a couple times on his new album The Life of Pablo. On "No More Parties In L.A." he spits, "I be worried 'bout my daughter, I be worried 'bout Kim / But Saint is baby Ye, I ain't worried 'bout him." Then on "Wolves," the original closing track to the first version of TLOP, he says, ""What if Mary was in the club, 'fore she met Joseph with no love? / Cover Saint in lambs' wool, we surrounded by the fuckin' wolves."
In fact, according to one former Def Jam employee, that line about Mary meeting Joseph in the club was the conceptual basis for the song when 'Ye first brought the idea to the label. "The 'What if Mary was in the club before she met Joseph, surrounded by wolves' is exactly how he described the song conceptually to us," wrote the former label employee. Some dislike the extra verse Kanye tacked on to the final version, but it seems to have a larger purpose.
