Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were reportedly not inspired by a point on a compass when they named their daughter North.
The high-profile pair welcomed their first child together earlier this month at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills.
Speculation was rife Kim and Kanye named their daughter North West after a position on the horizon, but a source has now revealed that their choice of moniker wasn’t inspired by a point on a compass.
"They chose the name North because they see it as a metaphor for 'up'. [They've been] telling friends, 'What's North of North? Nothing,'" a source told TMZ.
The US website also writes that Kim and Kanye believe North is "their highest point together as a couple and the pinnacle of the relationship".
"They consider her their 'North Star,'" the source added.
North was born several weeks premature and weighed around 5lbs when she was delivered. Neither Kim nor Kanye have been seen since she arrived on June 15, but international rapper Kanye is tipped to make a red carpet appearance on Thursday.
The Daily Mail reports that the hip-hop star is expected to attend True Magazine's birthday party in Los Angeles with his friend Jay-Z later this week - his first outing since becoming a father.
Kanye recently released his new album Yeezus, but is said to have put his busy schedule on hold in favour of spending time with his new family.
It was reported that Kim's mother Kris Jenner listened to Kanye's new chart offering while he was still working on the album in Paris.
According to W magazine, Kanye played a track called Awesome for the momager, which is inspired by her daughter Kim. However Kanye reportedly wasn't impressed when Kris chimed: "Great job!" after he'd played the track.
In the profile, Kanye also revealed how he felt about appearing on his reality TV star girlfriend's famous E! series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“Oh, that’s just all for love. It’s simply that,” he said. “At a certain point, or always, love is more important than any branding, or any set of cool people, or attempting to impress anyone. Because true love is just the way you feel.
“Thoughts and feelings can disagree sometimes.”
