We just got our first look at little Chicago West in Kylie Jenner’s video message to her recently born daughter.
While Kylie’s video “To Our Daughter” is an intriguing and heartwarming message to her new infant daughter, it was also the first images ever to reach the public of Kim and Kanye West’s new daughter, Chicago West.
In the video, mostly a living message to Kylie’s recently born baby, she visits Kim Kardashian West in her home to meet Chicago who was born back in January. Kylie gets to hold the tiny baby swaddled in blankets, as Kim reveals to both Kylie and Rob Kardashian that they’re settling on the name Chicago for their newborn.
The camera first views Kim handing Chicago over to Kylie, before zooming in on the dozing baby’s face. Then we get a fantastic closeup of Chicago awake and staring adoringly at her aunt. Rob Kardashian’s daughter Dream is there, looking less enthused about the entire proceeding, while Kim turns to Kylie off camera to tell her how certain parts of her anatomy are about to feel after she gives birth.
Kim announced Chicago’s birth on her website on January 15th, writing "Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl.” She was born via surrogate as Kim suffered life-threatening complications after the birth of her previous two children, Saint and North. She was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, weighing seven pounds and six ounces.
According to Kim, everyone was present during the delivery, including proud daddy Kanye. Kim was the first person the baby touched after being born.
"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."
As is customary for the Kardashian West clan, pictures of Chicago were not produced right away. In fact, if it weren’t for Kylie’s kid being born we may still be waiting. It took months before we got our first glimpse at either Saint or North after they were born, which seems at odds with their reality TV show lifestyle.
Expect more shots of adorable baby Chi in the coming months.
