The Kanye West and Kim Kardashian family got a little bigger over the weekend when the couple announced that Kim gave birth to a baby boy. And now they've revealed the child's name: Saint West.

The couple made the name announcement about their 8-lb bundle of joy on their website today. Kardashian, 35, also posted the info on Twitter, something that was accompanied by a four-person emoji of their family (including West, 38, with a 'stache):

Saint, who was born on Saturday, joins his older sister, North West, who was born on June 15, 2013. Kardashian quelled rumors that her son would be named another direction back in June on NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me! "I think it's so stupid," she said. "I don't like South West. North will always be better."
