Did Rob Kardashian drop a major hint about his new niece's name before her mom Kim Kardashian revealed it?

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and husband Kanye West welcomed their third child, a baby girl, via surrogate early on Monday. She revealed on Friday what they had named their newborn daughter—Chicago West.

On Wednesday, Rob, who is less active than his sisters on social media, posted a tweet containing nothing but two bear emojis. Many fans immediately pondered whether he was dropping a hint about Kim's daughter's name. And it looks like he might have—Chicago is the hometown of the Chicago Bears NFL team and Chicago Cubs MLB team.

Chicago is also where Kanye was raised.

The rapper wanted to pay homage to his hometown and his late mother, who died in 2007, an insider told E! News on Friday.

"Kanye came up with the name and Kim loved the significance behind the name. It was a mutual decision, which they discussed and agreed upon together," another source said.

The family is already calling baby Chicago by her nickname—Chi, pronounced "Shy."

"The birth went well," another source told E! News on Wednesday. "[Kim] was in the room the entire time. She had close family members waiting in a private nearby waiting room. Once the baby was born, they all went in to meet her."

"North [West] and Saint [West] are very excited about having a new sister and are very curious and helpful," the source said. "Kim is feeling blessed and can't believe she has three kids."
