    Kris Jenner Defends Baby Name North West on The View: "I'm Pro-North"

    Kris View ABC

    Put it on record: Kris Jenner is "Pro-North!"


    It was only a minute into the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's interview on The View when she was asked about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's little bundle of joy, North West


    "There's been a lot of controversy," said Barbara Walters. "I mean, it's funny, but do you really want your child named North West, and would you have preferred it have been with a K?"


    "Or Pan-Am?" joked Joy Behar.

    But Kris was effusive in her praise of Kim and Kanye's choice. "I love the name North. I'm pro-North!" she said.


    The soon-to-be talk show host also reiterated the meaning behind the name: "The way [Kim] explained it to me, north means highest power, and North is their highest point together."


    Kris also talked about Bruce Jenner's "man cave" that we saw him get this season when asked how her marriage was going. "We got a place to get away together," Kris explained. "He's just being selfish and using it more than anyone else," she added, jokingly.

    The momager also discussed the practical joker nature of Rob Kardashian, whose legal troubles with a paparazzo will be featured on this Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. "When Rob was a teenager, I would come home and he would be lying on the kitchen floor with ketchup running down his shirt and a knife tucked in here, and I would just step over him," Kris recalled with a laugh.


    Catch the whole family on an all-new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians this Sunday at 9/8c on E!
