Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wedding merger complete as Kardashian announces name change online

It must be official for Kardashian to change her Twitter and Instagram profiles

Kim Kardashian has made her marriage to Kanye West “official” in the most modern way possible – by changing her name on Twitter and Instagram.

The reality TV star edited her profile earlier today, implying that she now wishes to be known as Kim Kardashian West (n.b. anyone wishing to tweet her their congratulations, her user handle is still @KimKardashian).

The bride had hinted before that she would take her famous spouse’s surname, but has opted to keep her own in place too – the Kardashians are an “industry” after all, as West pointed out in his 20-minute long groom’s speech.

The US rapper spoke at length on the challenges the high-profile pair face as celebrities, before gushing over his new wife and describing her as “the ideal art”.

Kim Kardashian West's new Twitter profile “We are warriors!” he exclaimed. “There is not one person at this table that has not had to defend us at some point or another. At this table, the combination of powers can make the world a better place.”

West is also rumoured to have said "Kim's more beautiful than I am talented" which, as his arrogance seemingly knows no limits, could well be true.

 

Kardashian, 33, and West, 36, wed in Florence last Saturday duing a private lavish ceremony, before flying over to Ireland for a hiking and biking honeymoon in the Cork countryside.

Kardashian shared photos of the couple on their big day, just moments after they walked down the aisle as man and wife. The first photo, captioned “Mr and Mrs Kanye West”, has been retweeted almost 7,000 times.
