Updated at June 25, 2013 4:31 pm . Comments 1 North West is
clearly a ridiculous baby name. But according to a Kim Kardashian insider, it's ridiculous for a reason you might not expect. Someone supposedly in the know tells TMZ that Kimye did not name its
daughter North West due to the direction, but rather as a metaphor for "up." Huh?
The reality-TV star initially revealed the sex of her bundle of joy on her E! reality show. "I'm so excited we're
having a girl. Who doesn't want a girl?" Kardashian said.
A source told Mail Online that the 32-year-old sent a
few friends a fake picture of her baby, who is called North West, to see who would try to sell them to the press. Hatching a plan: Kim Kardashian sent fake baby pictures of her daughter to
friends to see who would try to sell them to the press One of Kims so-called pals attempted to sell the bogus photo of a newborn to a publication. The baby, who is seen wrapped in a blanket,
could easily pass for being the child of Kim and Kanye West, who was born June 15. But sources have confirmed that the photo Kim sent around was a fake.
Needless to say, the pics
ended up at TMZ. Looks like Kim Kardashian just lost a close friend. The new mom recently conducted a little experiment by sending a few fake baby photos to different friends she feared would
sell the pics to the tabloids. Sure enough, one pal in question brought a photo to TMZ . And then another so-called friend tried to sell a different picture.
