Chicago West is a recognized name in mainstream media, primarily because she’s the third-born child to billionaire celebrity parents, Kim and Kanye. Her alluring smiles and affectatious personality have stolen the hearts of millions around the world, and there’s nothing one can do about it. Born on January 15, 2018, in Los Angeles, California, and weighing seven pounds and six ounces, West came into the world. Her mogul mother, Kim Kardashian, and rapper father, Kanye West, had her via a surrogate, as Kim was advised not to conceive again after her second pregnancy due to complications.
Her name was chosen as an homage to her father’s hometown and his mother, Donda. West’s beautiful dark eyes, curly black hair, charming smile, and sweet voice validate the natural features of a Capricorn. West has mixed ethnicities, due to her father being of African-American descent, while her mother has Armenian, English, Irish, Scottish, German and Dutch roots. Being born to billionaire parents, West has experienced nothing but the finer things of life. From vacations in Aspen to star-studded birthday parties where she can want for nothing, West lives the life envied by all four-year-olds and adults too.
