How did the engaged couple decide on the moniker for their new bundle of joy?
This story was originally published on PEOPLE.
Early Thursday morning, the mom-to-be arrived at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for her cesarean section and gave birth to their baby girl — Dream Renée Kardashian — at 9:18 a.m., who weighed 7 lbs., 5 oz., according to E! News.
So just how did the engaged couple decide on the name Dream? According to a source, Kardashian, 29, and Chyna, 28 agreed upon the name long before welcoming their newborn daughter into the world.
“Rob and Chyna had the name Dream for a long time,” the source tells PEOPLE. “They named her Dream because they’ve always said she’s a dream come true.”
After Kardashian, who was in the delivery room when his fiancée gave birth to their first child together, met his infant daughter, the new father took to Instagram to express his excitement and love for Chyna and Dream.
