You knew we wouldn't wait long for this.
Sure, it's only been a few hours since Kanye West announced that he and Kim Kardashian are having a baby, but there's no time like the present to start conceiving baby names for the couple (see what we just did there?).
We doubt they will go with "Kimye" since that moniker is already taken. So what do you think they should go for?
"Kanye Omari West, Jr." if it's a boy? "Kris" in honor of Kim's momanger who has played such a key role in her career? Last year Kourtney Kardashian's son Mason's name was third on the Baby Center's list of most popular names so perhaps the couple might want to consult that guide.
What are some of your ideas for names for baby Kimye? Sound off!

Rihanna and Chris Brown are at it again.
And by "it" we mean letting the world know that their friendship (or whatever you want to call it) is still going strong. Rihanna posted a picture on her Instagram account of her hugging a man who judging by the tats appears to be Brown.
The caption on the photo reads "f***yopictures i dont wanna leave!!! Killed it tonight baby." f***yopictures looks to be Brown's Instagram account with several pictures of him.
According to EW, Brown was performing in Frankfurt yesterday. Rihanna referenced Frankfurt in the photo proceeding the cuddly one. The same weekend that Brown got into a vulgar Twitter fight which led to him to delete his account, Rihanna posted a pic of what appeared to be Brown in bed.
