Kim Kardashian Shares Adorable Photos of Son Saint, 5½, as Uncle Scott Disick Calls Him 'Stunner'

Yahoo Entertainment 20 July, 2021 - 11:01pm

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum, 40, shared a pair of photos Tuesday showing 5½-year-old Saint smiling outside in orange swim trunks with his hair braided and a gold necklace that appears to have his name on it. "Just how??? 😍😭," Kim captioned the post.

In the comments, Saint's Uncle Scott Disick wrote that his nephew is a "Number 1 stunner."

Kim shares four kids with estranged husband Kanye West: daughters North, 8, and Chicago, 3, plus sons Saint and Psalm, 2.

The reality star and the rapper, 44, began dating in 2012 and later wed in 2014. Following a challenging period in their relationship last year, Kim filed for divorce from the rapper in February after six years of marriage.

Kim showed off Saint's fashion choices back in May, which included a New York Yankees hat and camouflage pants with sandals.

"Freshest Kid alert 🚨," she captioned the post at the time, sharing photos of Saint modeling the look.

In her Father's Day tribute on Instagram last month, Kim included Kanye in a gallery of photos that also featured her late father Robert Kardashian, her brother Rob KardashianCaitlyn Jenner, Disick, Tristan Thompson and Travis Scott, writing, "Happy Father's Day to all the amazing dads in our lives! Love you unconditionally!!!"

A source recently told PEOPLE that Kim and Kanye have been spending time together as a family with the kids amid their split.

"Kim and Kanye are spending time with the kids. Kanye has accepted that Kim wants a divorce. For a long time, it was very hard for him. He was disappointed. He has come around though," the source said.

"He wants the best for his kids. He is keeping things amicable with Kim so the kids can be happy. They have been spending time together as a family."

Kanye West Confirms Release of New Album Donda in Beats By Dre Commercial

The tease comes days after Kanye held a surprise listening party in Las Vegas over the weekend. Another listening event is set for Thursday in Atlanta and, according to a press release, the event will also be streamed live online via Apple Music.

Donda, which takes its name from Kanye’s late mother, serves as the follow-up to 2019’s Jesus is King. While much is still unknown about his latest project, early reports from last weekend’s listening party suggest that it leans more gospel than straight-up Christian, and includes guest appearances from the likes of Lil Baby, Pusha T, and Baby Keem. Kanye is also apparently back to cursing — something he previously swore off after becoming a born-again Christian.

The 40-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians vet shared two new images of the boy who wore no shirt, just shorts, as he showed off a gold nameplate necklace.

The makeup mogul added a heart-eye emoji and a crying emoji.

In the images Saint looks to be in good spirits as he is photographed by outdoor furniture on a patio. His hair is worn in braids.

This comes after claims Kanye has 'accepted' that Kim 'wants a divorce'.

The Heartless rapper was reportedly 'disappointed' when his estranged wife filed to end their marriage earlier this year after seven years of marriage, but sources have now said he has 'come around' to the idea of separating.

'He wants the best for his kids. He is keeping things amicable with Kim so the kids can be happy. They have been spending time together as a family.'

Kanye West reveals 'Donda' release date, previews new song in ad with Sha'Carri Richardson: See it here

USA TODAY 19 July, 2021 - 01:53pm

"Donda," rapper Kanye West's 10th album, follows 2019 albums "Jesus Is King" and "Jesus Is Born." It's named for his mother, who died in 2007.

At last, Kanye West’s “Donda” will arrive.

The rapper revealed in a Beats by Dre commercial, which aired during Tuesday's NBA Finals, that his long-awaited follow-up to 2019's "Jesus is King" drops this Friday.

West scored and edited the ad, which features U.S. track star Sha'Carri Richardson. The commercial also featured a snippet from "No Child Left Behind," a new song from the album. In the ad, West can be heard singing, "He's done miracles on me" as Richardson prepares to run.

Richardson, who is serving a one-month suspension after testing positive for marijuana at the U.S. Olympic trials last month, was not selected as a member of the Olympic 4x100 relay team, in a controversial decision earlier this month.

West will debut the upcoming album release – his 10th – at 8 p.m. Thursday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Tickets, priced at $20 and $50, went on sale Monday via ticketmaster.com. About 40,000 to 50,000 tickets were expected to be available at the venue, which holds 71,000. According to the Beats by Dre commercial, the listening event will also be livestreamed on Apple Music.

Though West is long associated with Chicago, the mercurial rapper was born in Atlanta and retains ties to the city; there are also no capacity mandates for large gatherings in Georgia.

West named the album after his mother, Donda West, who died in 2007 at age 58. No other details about the album – which West initially announced on Twitter in July 2020 – have been announced.

The album has been teased several times this year from people in West's circle.

The rapper's manager Abou Thiam confirmed the arrival of "Donda" in the comments of a now-deleted Instagram post in June 2020 announcing the launch of West's Yeezy Gap collaboration: "WestDayEver.  Album OTW!," he wrote.

Internet sensation and show host Justin Laboy revealed on Twitter he got a first listen of West's album Sunday along with NBA star Kevin Durant in Las Vegas. 

"The production is light years ahead of it’s time, and the bars sound like he’s broke & hungry trying to get signed again," Laboy tweeted. "Any artist who plan on dropping soon should just push it back."

The initially announced release date was set to be the same day Taylor Swift dropped a surprise album, "Folklore," on July 24, 2020. The two have a long-running feud, dating back to the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when West infamously interrupted Swift during her acceptance speech for best female video.

The rapper's  new album was initially set to debut just days after West, 43, posted a series of bizarre tweets in July 2020, some of which he later deleted. In one of the since-deleted tweets, West implied Kim Kardashian had tried to have him involuntarily hospitalized, saying: "Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up."

That prompted Kardashian to ask for "compassion and empathy," posting a rare, deeply personal message about her husband, saying he has bipolar disorder.

"I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions," Kardashian West wrote. "He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder. Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions."

West's post-Kardashian tweets came a day after he gave a rambling speech in June 2020 at a rally in South Carolina for his presidential campaign. During the speech, he broke down in tears, shared personal information about his family and made a bewildering comment about abolitionist Harriet Tubman.

Kardashian officially filed for divorce from the "Jesus is King" rapper in February after almost seven years of marriage.

West, with "Jesus Is King" and "Jesus Is Born," dramatically veered away from the kinds of songs that made him famous and toward Christian hip-hop.

In a review of "Jesus Is King," USA TODAY's Patrick Ryan said it was "West's riskiest effort yet."

"Here, he completely abandons his provocative rhymes about fame, women and mental health, and potentially alienates longtime fans with chaste lyrics about God, heaven and staying on the straight and narrow," Ryan wrote. "Interpolating Bible verses and Christian hymns, and frequently backed by a church organ and choir, the album suggests a bold new direction for the now-father of four."

Even though "Donda" was very tardy, West still dropped some new tunes in late 2020, after the announced release date, including posting a "snippet" of track "Believe What I Say" to Twitter in September

Another song, "Nah Nah Nah," arrived in October. West called it the soundtrack to his future presidential campaign. 

West was also recently credited as a producer on Lil Nas X's single "Industry Baby" featuring Jack Harlow, set to release this Friday.

In addition to continuing to churn out music during the coronavirus pandemic, West helped produce a memorial to honor DMX in April, collaborated with Balenciaga to create tribute shirts to raise money for the late rapper's family and released his first piece of the Yeezy Gap collaboration in June with the "Round Jacket."
