Kanye West is always famous for being frank with his ideas and thoughts, although sometimes they could cause some controversy. That’s why he is always the target of the media, especially after marrying Kim Kardashian. Let’s take a look at Kanye West’s family with Kim and their children.
Kanye West’s family when he was little
Kanye West was born in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. His parents divorced when he was 3 years old, after which he moved with his mother to Chicago, Illinois. He was always for Chicago – the city where he grew up, a special affection.
His father, Ray West, is a former member of the Black Panther Party, one of the first black press photographers at the Atlanta Constitution magazine. Currently, he is an advisor to Christianity. West’s mother is Donda West. At that time, she was an English professor at Clark Atlanta University and president of the English Department of Chicago State University. After that, she retired to work as a manager for West. She then passed away in 2007.

Kim and Kanye welcomed their first baby girl into the world on June 15th, 2013. However, they didn’t share a photograph of her with the world until two months later.
They also initially decided she wouldn’t appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians; however, she now features regularly and even has her own storylines.
North is quite the fashionista and, of course, Kim often shares adorable snaps of her rocking fab outfits that she has put together all by herself. Although she is only 6, she had her first solo magazine cover for WWD Beauty last year.
Kim announced the news on her Instagram, writing: “My most stylish and beautiful baby girl North shot her 1st cover for @wwd !!!!
“She loves fashion & beauty and has so much fun doing this!”
Saint is Kim and Kanye’s eldest son and was born on December 5th, 2015, making him 4 years old.
The celeb couple revealed his name on Kim’s website, three days after announcing that he had been born and it didn’t take long for it to begin trending on social media.
Kim has referred to Saint as her ‘twin personality’ over the years and often shares photographs of him on her Instagram looking absolutely adorable.
Chicago was born via surrogate in 2018.
Kim announced the news in a post which read: “World, Meet Chicago West!”. After that she shared a statement, saying: “Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl.
“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”
Little Chicago (named after her father’s hometown) is now 2 years old and looks pretty much identical to her mum and Kim often shares photographs of her captioned ‘my twin’.
Psalm was Kim and Kanye’s second child born via surrogate in 2019.
Kim announced the news on Twitter, writing: “We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need.”
Kris said the couple chose the name as it was ‘just a wonderful way to celebrate how they feel’. Then, she added: “And he’s such a blessing, so it’s perfect. He’s just adorable.”
