Kim Kardashian West has shared the first picture of baby Chicago.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star took to her Instagram account yesterday to share a snap of her daughter, who was born last month.

She simply captioned it: "Baby Chicago."

Meanwhile, Kim who also has North, four, and Saint, two previously took to the app to thank the surrogate mother, who carried her and Kanye's third child.

She wrote: "I'm so grateful for modern technology and that this is even possible. It's not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier, and this was the best experience I've ever had. Our gestational carrier gave us the greatest gift one could give. The connection with our baby came instantly, and it's as if she was with us the whole time. Having a gestational carrier was so special for us, and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true. We are so excited to finally welcome home our baby girl.

"I have always been really honest about my struggles with pregnancy. Preeclampsia and placenta accreta are high-risk conditions, so when I wanted to have a third baby, doctors said that it wasn't safe for my or the baby's health to carry on my own. After exploring many options, Kanye and I decided to use a gestational carrier."

Madonna wants to turn her children into megastars.

The 59-year-old queen of pop is keen to turn herself into a 'momager' a term created by Kris Jenner as she's determined to help her eldest kids Lourdes, 21, Rocco, 17, Mercy, 12, and David, 12 kick-start their careers in the limelight.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Madonna adores every single one of her children and wants to use her influence to build them incredible careers.

"Lourdes wants to train as a professional dancer. She will start to focus on dance properly as she graduates from her musical theatre course at university in America soon.

"Rocco is a keen painter and is inspired by Banksy. His dream is to showcase his work at an exhibition. Madonna is already lining up the best contacts for him in London's art scene.

"Her adopted daughter, Mercy, idolises Kanye [West] and is already writing raps and performing them, while Madge moved to Portugal this year in support of David's dream to become a footballer."

And, although Madonna's five-year-old twins, Esther and Stella, are too young to know what they want to do yet, the blonde star also has a plan of action for them as well.

However, the Like A Virgin hitmaker hasn't forgotten about her own career as she's reportedly planning to release new music and go on tour later this year.


Iggy Azalea thinks the majority of men are hypocrites.

The 27-year-old rap star has taken to her Twitter account to hit out at a perceived double standard when it comes to romance, posting a cryptic message in which she claims that only a tiny fraction of men hold themselves to the same high standards that they apply to women.

Iggy wrote: "I promise you; only 0.001% of men actually hold themselves to same level of accountability they hold women, especially when romance is concerned. Boy. Bye. Baiiiiiii. Bbbb I I can't. (sic)"

The Australian rap star was previously engaged to NBA player Nick Young, and has been linked to a number of other men, including fellow rapper French Montana, since their relationship ended in 2016.

Iggy recently confessed on Twitter that she's found it hard to acknowledge to herself when it's time to end a romance.

She wrote on the microblogging website: "One of the hardest things in life is being honest with yourself.

"Sometimes I can love someone just as they are; but also know in my heart [that] they're the wrong fit for me.

"Its so hard for your brain to confess to your heart when an end is needed. (sic)"

The 'Fancy' hitmaker subsequently added: "I confess, I confess. I can't live half a happiness. (sic)"
