Drumroll please... After days of anxiously awaiting to find out what Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West would name their new baby (Pablo? Yeezus? South? Wild?), the couple has finally picked a name for their daughter: Chicago West.

The now-mom-of-three made the announcement on her app by simply posting "Chicago West," and later shared the same post to Twitter.

The couple had their third child via a surrogate, who gave birth on Monday to a healthy baby girl weighing in at 7 lbs. 6 oz. TMZ reports that Kim was in the delivery room during the birth and was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with the child.

The couple is also parents to North, 4, and Saint, 2, who apparently already have a nickname for their baby sister: Chi (pronounced Shy).

Though we don't have a solid explanation for why the growing family chose the name, we imagine it has something to do with the fact that Kanye is originally from Chicago, which he frequently raps about in his music. ("And you say Chi City/ Chi City Chi City")

According to Us Weekly, the surrogate that the family chose is in her late 20s and is quite literally the poster child for surrogacy: She has been a surrogate for other couples in the past, and has appeared in promotional videos for the process of surrogacy. The couple's decision to choose surrogacy came after Kim experienced placenta accreta—a life-threatening condition in which the placenta fails to properly detach from the uterus during birth—during her first two pregnancies. Doctors told the reality star it would not be safe for her to try to carry a third child, so the couple allegedly paid $45,000 to the surrogate over the course of 10 months, in addition to handing over a $68,850 deposit to the surrogacy agency.

Though Chi is the newest member of the Kardashian dynasty, she won't be for long: Khloe Kardashian has confirmed that she is expecting to have her first child in three months, and rumors have gone around that Kylie Jenner is also pregnant.

In the meantime, the Kardashian family will have plenty to Instagram with little Chi.

Welcome to the family, Chicago!
