Kris Jenner defends her grandchild Psalm West’s name: ‘It’s perfect’

Fresh Air Fund

Here are some photos of Kris Jenner at the Fresh Air Fund’s event on Wednesday night. Her date was her boyfriend Cory Gamble, and I still can’t believe they’re together, but sure. Look at Kris’s ‘80s outfit – the sleeves, the neckline, the patterned pantyhose, it all looks so OG 90210. Which is weird, because even though Kris’s heyday was legitimately the ‘80s, I’ve appreciated the fact that she had somewhat modern style. Anyway, while she attended this event, she chatted with Entertainment Tonight about her newest grandbaby, Psalm West. I still CANNOT with that name. But Kris apparently likes it.

Kris Jenner is spilling details on what inspired Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s new baby’s name. ET caught up with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch at the Fresh Air Fund’s Annual Spring Benefit honoring Tommy Hilfiger on Wednesday, where she gushed about her “adorable” new grandchild. Last week, Kim shared the first photo of her newborn son and revealed his name: Psalm West.

“The inspiration was the Book of Psalms in the Bible,” Jenner revealed to ET. “I think it’s just a wonderful way to celebrate how they feel. And he’s such a blessing, so it’s perfect.”

As for what the cutest thing baby Psalm has done so far, Jenner said “I don’t know, he’s just adorable!”

“I think it’s just a wonderful way to celebrate how they feel.” Is it though? There are so many Biblical names and Biblical nouns to choose from and they chose PSALM. I just can’t. Still. I was trying to remember how I felt about all of their other baby names initially, and from my memory, I actually defended Chicago/Chi and I actually thought Saint West sounded sort of cool. As I’ve said before, I’m really jealous of the West surname because it makes almost every first name sound great. But PSALM? No.

    North I was kind of like, I can’t but it works with the last name. Saint I thought was super cute and chicago/chi although not sure why they didn’t just shorten it to Chi from the jump bc every other name is one syllable but whatever. PSALM? Idk.

  2. Lila says:

    That outfit is terrifying. She looks like she’s about to pull a gold pistol from her clutch to shoot JR with.

  3. Eliza says:

    I didn’t like North. North is not the highest point, it’s just a magnetic location. The highest point is a mountain top summit. Saint is too much hype for a kid. Chicago was awful. Psalm follows the trend of worse and worse baby names.

  4. LORENA says:

    I bet they wish they stuck with the one syllable cause Chicago doesn’t go with their other kids names at all

  5. jen says:

    she meant to say it’s pserfect.

  6. 2lazy4username says:

    Still love it!

  7. Lynne says:

    Let’s face it…..they could have called him Lucifer and PMK would defend the choice.
    “it means light-bringer in Latin and we call him Luc”

  8. Becks1 says:

    Of course she’s going to defend the name lol. Can you imagine if she didn’t?

    I also love how she’s like, “its from the book of psalms in the bible.” Um, yeah, we know?

  9. Ann says:

    I don’t hate it. I don’t love it but it’s better than some of the other weird names out there. I think it was Jason Lee who named his son Pilot Inspector? And I’ll never like Goop’s choice in names. I still hate the name Apple.

      It’s not Fifi Trixibelle, Peaches Honeyblossom, Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lilly, or Little Pixie, but it’s not great. I guess it’s better than by cousin’s little friend, who’s named GodsLove.

  10. Jesus says:

    I mean, its not good, but at least is fun LOL. Better than say… Archie. Yeah. Sorry.
    But anyways, name your baby however you want i guess. I actually like North and Saint! Both pretentious but I like the ring of it. Saint especially. I relate it to Santo ofc, which is a bit of a common name here in Brazil, especially among the elder. Chicago is a homage to Kanyes beloved city, cant shit on that. So Im okay with Psalm. Its not like we were expecting a John or Mathew you know. Its on brand.

  11. Alissa says:

    I think it’s hilariously terrible. I don’t mind North or Saint, and Chicago is cute but doesn’t go with any of the other names. Psalm is just… it’s a difficult word. it’s not cute. but honestly True, Reign, and Stormi are all pretty stupid names as well.

  12. Wilady says:

    What’s she supposed to say? Of course she says it’s perfect. A good Grandma doesn’t crap all over the name of a baby. It’s already their name and it would just make things stupid and uncomfortable by slamming it.
