Kim Kardashian won't be naming her baby boy 'South West'

Kim Kardashian made quite a statement when she named her daughter North West – but she definitely won't be following suit when it comes to her baby son. Despite popular opinion that she should call her second-born 'South West', the pregnant star dismissed the suggestion outright during an appearance on Shaquille O'Neal's The Big Podcast on Monday.

"How many times have you been asked this question..." former basketball star Shaq asked, "Kim, you're pregnant, you've announced it's a boy, are you gonna name it South West?"

"I've been asked it hundreds of times," 34-year-old Kim replied, via phone. "And I think it's the stupidest question, no disrespect to you.

"Why just add another direction? We're good. North is the best. I don't want to try and duplicate that with like a lower direction, you know?"

Kim announced that she was expecting her second baby with husband Kanye West in June, and confirmed that the new arrival would be a little boy in a sweet Father's Day message on Instagram.

Posting a picture of two-year-old daughter North sitting on Kanye's lap as he read to her, Kim wrote: "Precious moments like this when we were travelling on tour with you are what I live for," before adding: "You're such a good daddy to North & you will be the best daddy to our new son too!"

Shortly after the baby news came to light, 'South West' began trending on Twitter – a sign that fans were hoping Kim and Kanye, 38, stick to their unusual geographical theme.

It is understood that the couple – who married in May 2014 – will welcome their baby boy in December.
