Kimye naming home after Downton Abbey
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly naming their Los Angeles home in honour of their favourite TV show, Downton Abbey.
The power couple are big fans of popular television show Downton Abbey, with 34-year-old Kim once claiming she even wanted to be on the ITV period drama. And now they’ll be able to feel as though they’re a part of it.
“[Kanye] wants the home to resemble Downton in its grandeur and ‘regalness’ and there will be a sign naming it Highclere Castle,” an insider told British newspaper The Sun.
Highclere is a grand castle that exists outside of Newbury, Berks, and it’s where exterior shots are captured for the series. Now the California based duo are apparently erecting a sign outside their place with the same name.
Kimye recently bought a luxurious $20 million home in Los Angeles neighborhood Hidden Hills. The property consists of 3.5 acres of land including its own vineyard, as well as two swimming pools.
Apparently, the couple are even having fun taking on the personas of the show’s characters. Downton is set in the early 1900s, and is lead by aristocratic family the Crawleys – the Earl and Countess of Grantham.
“Kanye loves calling Kim ‘lady,’” according to the source. “He basically thinks he’s an even cooler version of Lord Grantham.”
Apparently Kim and Kanye even threw a party recently with a Downton Abbey theme. The Keeping up with the Kardashians star must be loving this indulgence, as she’s a serious supporter of the show.
“I’m a big fan. I’d love to be on it if they asked,” Kim previously told The Sun.
Kim and Kanye got married on May 24 in a fancy ceremony in Florence, Italy. Together they have 14-month-old daughter North West.
