Rob Kardashian Defends Kim And Kanye's Baby Name Choice, 'North Is The Highest Point, So It Has A Lot Of Meaning'

Rob Kardashian is sticking up for his big sister Kim !

The 32-year-old has been ridiculed by many for choosing to name her baby North West—but Rob is firmly defending the name choice and says Kim and baby daddy, Kanye West, would have been attacked no matter what name they settled on.


“I told Kim and Kanye this: I’m like, ‘Yo, people are always going to talk whether it’s good or bad. There’s always going to be the haters, but do what you guys feel,’" Rob told Ryan Seacrest during an interview Wednesday morning.

“[But] North West, it sounds cool! [And] North is the highest point, so it has a lot of meaning to it.”
