Kim Kardashian West has gone on record at least twice to deny rumors that she’ll be heading in yet another direction for baby No. 2.

Kim, 34, and rapper hubby Kayne West, 38, already named their two-year-old daughter ‘North.’

But Daily Mail Online exclusively can reveal that the West couple will be, indeed, naming their baby boy a direction. Sort of.

‘Easton is the chosen name. It’s confirmed that the baby boy will be called Easton,’ a close family friend said, spilling the beans.

Kim, and Kayne West, 38, already named their two-year-old daughter ‘North.’ But Daily Mail Online exclusively can reveal that the West couple will be, indeed, naming their baby boy a direction., sort of.  It’s Easton!

Easton West will join North West in about five months. The only location left is South, and Kim’s wasn’t big on that choice.

The reality star told NPR: ‘I don’t like South West, though, because that’s like, you know, North will always, you know, be better and be more…she has a better direction.’

She went on to affirm to Shaquille O’Neal on his podcast: ‘Why just add another direction? North is the best. I don’t want to try to duplicate that with a lower direction, you know?’

Yet, in a form, she will.

The family friend confirmed to Daily Mail Online that last week, the celebrity pair locked in the name ‘Easton’ so that his nursery and wardrobe can begin to be made, monograms and all.

‘Kourtney told a few girls at a Hidden Hills pool party last weekend that Kayne’s favorite name by far is ‘Easton’, a name Kim wasn’t hot on at first because Kanye liked simply ‘East’

Kim Kardashian squashes rumours of naming son ‘South West’

The family friend confirmed to Daily Mail Online that last week, the celebrity pair locked in the name ‘Easton’ so that his nursery and wardrobe can begin to be made, monograms and all.’But Kim came up with Easton and, for them, history was made.

‘No doubt monogrammed baby bibs are being hand-sewn as we speak,’ the friend added. ‘Mason is already calling his auntie’s tummy Easton.’

The expectant E! star got onto the topic of baby names when host Mike Pesca of NPR’s news quiz show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! offered her a few ideas.

Given all the K names already in use, Pesca suggested: ‘In Sudanese, the word for south is kadoul. In Swahili, the word for east in Swahili is kati. The word for east in Hungarian is kallet. I could send you these.’

Kim’ response: ‘You’d be surprised at all of the names people do send us.’

For now, ‘Easton’ is locked in. Kim is due at the end of this year.
