Showbiz power couple Kimye, otherwise known as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, are reported to have named their new born baby daughter Kaidence Donda West.

Eschewing the conventional spelling of Cadence - which is also a musical term for a sequence of notes indicating the end of a phrase- Kim and Kanye have ostensibly chosen to Keep Up With the other Kardashian monikers by starting their daughters' name with a 'K' (I'm sure Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie and Kris are just thrilled).

The child's second name is thought to be a tribute to Kanye's late mother Dr Donda West. The names were reportedly revealed by a nurse at Los Angeles' Cedars Sinai Hospital where the infant came into the world almost a month prematurely at the weekend.

The baby girl, who will doubtless become the next star of the Kardashians' reality TV show, has already been welcomed into existence on social networking sites and television. Kim's sister Khloe wrote on Twitter: "I can not even begin 2describe the miracle that is now a part of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy &resting. We appreciate all of the love."

"More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now."

Kim's mother Kris Jenner told E! at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday that her daughter was "extremely happy and thrilled for the new baby and she's doing great and she's beautiful".
