The waiting and guessing game is officially over!

After much anticipation, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are finally ready to reveal the name of their baby boy. Without further ado, the happy couple announced on Kim's website that they decided on…

Saint West! 

The post also revealed the baby boy weighed in at 8 lbs., 1 oz. The decision is one that was made towards the end of the reality star's pregnancy journey. In fact, the 35-year-old and her hubby hadn't decided on the perfect name Sunday evening.

"I don't have names, which is so crazy," North West's mom told E! News exclusively in November. "We just started talking about it and that was the last thing for us last time. So I feel confident obviously that we'll figure it out."

Over the summer, reports surfaced that Kimye was planning to name their son Easton. A source quickly shot down that rumor to E! News.

There was also a bit of mumbling going on that South West was a possibility. If you asked Kim, however, that wasn't really an option.

"I don't like South West, though, because that's like, you know, North will always, you know, be better and be more…she has a better direction," she told NPR. "So I wouldn't do that. I don't think we'll go with another direction."

On Dec. 5, Kim announced on her website that she had welcomed her second child with her husband. "Kanye and I welcome our baby boy," she wrote with a picture of the couple holding hands. "Mother and son are doing well."

Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian were at the Los Angeles hospital for support. Kylie Jenner was in Miami for Art Basel, but a source told E! News that the 18-year-old couldn't be happier for Kim and that she can't wait to meet her new nephew.

As the holidays approach, we can only imagine that Kim, Kanye and even North will have a reason to smile with their latest family member. After all, they've been preparing for quite some time.

"We talk about baby brother all the time," Kim recently told E! News exclusively about big sis Nori. "She's so sweet and yesterday she said, ‘Mommy, can I give baby brother a kiss on your tummy?' and she kissed my stomach. She's super sweet. She has a hard time when I hold other babies but she's been getting a little bit better and I'm hoping that with her brother it's a whole new experience."

New episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians air Sunday nights at 9 pm. only on E!
