Kim Kardashian West has blasted rumours she plans to call her new baby South West.

The 34-year-old beauty - who has a 23-month-old daughter North with her hip-hop star husband Kanye West, 38 - recently announced she was pregnant with her second child, but has rubbished speculation about the baby's name.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star said: ''I don't like South West, though, because that's like, you know, North will always, you know, be better and be more ... she has a better direction.

''So I wouldn't do that. I don't think we'll go with another direction.

''I mean, everyone keeps on saying South and I think it's so stupid. Stupidest thing ever and just ridiculous.''

Kim also insisted that the majority of speculation surrounding her new baby is untrue, including the sex of the child.

Speaking to NPR, Kim explained: ''We actually haven't told anyone the sex. So I heard that we're having a boy. I heard that we're having twins. I heard that I'm not even carrying my own baby. I've heard so many things and most of that information is not true.''
