It appears that Khloe Kardashian and her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, have picked a name for their baby girl due later this month.
Late last week, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star held a huge baby shower that was sponsored by Amazon.
At the event, the fashion designer and basketball player revealed that they were having a tough time picking a name for their first child and asked their friends and relatives for suggestions.
A source has come forward claiming that the hit movie, Black Panther, has inspired the expecting parents. They might pick a name from one of the pop culture phenomenon’s characters.
In the flick, Danai Gurira played Okoye while Angela Bassett was Ramonda. Other options are Lupita Nyong’o’s character, Nakia, or Letitia Wright as Shuri.
A family friend told Hollywood Life: “Tristan has thrown a few recent baby names Khloe’s way that is related to the Black Panther film. Everything from Nakia, Okoye, and Shuri have been mentioned. Tristan has also told Khloe it might be cool to do a spin on the name to be something close to Wakanda. And Khloe is heavily considering it; she is a little apprehensive though because she wants an original name. She feels these names will be taken with the success of the film and others who are having children wanting to do the same thing and having the same idea.”
Another person had this to say about Miss Kardashian’s trip to the hospital: “Khloe did visit the doctor at her hospital before leaving for Japan, but it was not because she had a pregnancy emergency, she was seeking approval before traveling abroad. Khloe was being extra careful about protecting her baby before leaving on her international trip with her sisters. She went to see her doctor ensure she and her baby were healthy and strong enough for the long flight. After checking out her baby, and Khloe, the doctor determined she was stable enough for the big trip and even provided a signed note with all her vital information should she need to see a doctor while traveling.”
