American reality television star Kim Kardashian and husband American rapper Kanye West, are expecting a son.

The 34-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star revealed her baby's gender on Father's Day, on her social media accounts.

Kardashian posted a photo of the Gold Digger hitmaker reading to their daughter North West, and praised her 38-year-old rapper husband.

"Precious moments like this when we were traveling on tour with you are what I live for. You're such a good daddy to North & you will be the best daddy to our new son too!" she captioned the image.

During the mid-season finale of Keeping Up The Kardashians, Kardashian revealed that she and West are expecting their second baby together.

Fans immediately started speculating that the couple would once again go for a "direction-inspired" name.

However, in an interview with the NPR show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me, Kardashian responded to the hilarious comments about her second baby's name.

"I don't like South West though, because North will always be better, and she has a better direction," she said. "I wouldn't do that [set them up in conflict with each other]. I don't think we'll go with another direction."

"You'll be surprised at all the names people do send us," she revealed. "I mean, everyone keeps saying South, and I think that's so stupid. It's the stupidest thing ever, and just ridiculous."
