Saint West is officially a year old.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s son is celebrating a birthday today, December 5, and there’s no doubt the little guy is going to be surrounded by all his friends and family for his big day.

It’s unclear what that family has planned for the little guy, but if it’s a bash like Kim and Kanye’s daughter North’s first birthday, then it will be EPIC.

In June 2014, Kardashian threw Nori a kids’ style Coachella-themed party called “Kidchella,” complete with a ferris wheel, treats, multiple stages for different performers and fun Coachella-esque costumes. Guests were also treated to hair braiding, face painting and were greeted with tie-dyed wristbands.


Saint’s birthday comes just days after Kanye’s return home from a week-and-a-half-long hospital stay. On November 20, the rapper was admitted to the UCLA Medical Center after acting erratically at his personal trainer’s home in Los Angeles.

According to reports, Ye was officially treated for “temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration.” The rapper, who had the apparent mental break on the anniversary of his late mother’s funeral nine years ago, was finally sent home and is currently receiving outpatient treatment.

A source explained to E! News that “Kim wants him to continue getting therapy even after all of this. He has support from so many people.”

According to the insider “Kim is doing okay despite reports” and “she has many things on her plate so being overwhelmed is expected. She wants to get Kanye back on his feet. She is not leaving him. She loves him.”

Another source revealed to the news outlet that Ye’s decision to leave the hospital last week was also “fueled” by his children, Saint and North.

It was previously reported that during the time of the Chicago native’s hospitalization, his children thought daddy was simply on the road — per the usual.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
