When appearing on Ellen DeGeneres's show, Kim Kardashian reveals that she and Kanye have not named their son yet, as they typically begin that process in the eighth month of her pregnancy. Since Kim is only in her seventh month, she has roughly thirty days before the couple goes baby name shopping. Ellen tries to get in on the fun early, suggesting names such as Wild (or Wild Wild) and East Meets. Lucky for Ellen, she did not recommend the name South, as that is one of Kim's pet peeves.

The reality star was pretty sure that they are opposed to going "another direction," but suggests the name Easton herself. Don't go around touting Kim's baby name announcement though. The contouring master also noted that, "I don't think my husband likes that name." And if Kanye doesn't like it...well, yeah.

Kim also answered questions about Kanye's infamous speech where he announced that he's running for president of the United States in 2020. As it turns out, he did not discuss this major life decision with Kim before telling the world. That lead Ellen to question if Kanye is pranking us, to which Kim responded, "He is serious!"
