Kim Kardashian Talks Kanye’s Presidential Run and a Possible Baby Name
At the tail end of Kanye West’s impassioned speech at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, he announced that he would be running for the U.S. presidency in 2020. No one seems to know if he was kidding or not, because the declaration took everyone by surprise — including his wife, Kim Kardashian.
During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Kim said she learned about his bid at the same time as the rest of the world. She said, “That was news to me…That wasn’t a discussion in our household. I believe he is serious and I know that if he puts his mind to something he’ll do his best. It’s been fascinating just hearing off of the conversations that have gone on since that announcement. I don’t know if that was planned and I just didn’t know about it or if he came up with that idea right then and there…That was a fun night and I’m looking forward to what’s to come.”
Kim continued, saying, "That's a big thing to not talk to your wife about, but I think that would be so much fun to be in the White House. I was joking with him. I was like, 'You're going to have to make it to a second term,' because he loves redecorating. I was like, 'You're going to want to redo the whole White House and we're not going to be able to enjoy it. So we're going to have to just go with the flow.’”
As for right now, though, the couple is focusing on their impending birth of their second baby. Kim is due in December, and they have yet to decide on a name. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star says she'll start thinking about a possible name eight months into her pregnancy, and mentioned that she hasn’t ruled out the name Easton: "I do like the name Easton. Easton West. I don't think my husband likes that name, but I do like it. I don't we'll go another direction. It's definitely not South. Every time someone says 'South' I just want to roll my eyes. It's not a good direction."
