Kris Jenner shares inside deets of baby Saint West's birth

Los Angeles - Kris Jenner thought Kim Kardashian West was "strong but a little cranky" when she gave birth to her son Saint last week.

The 60-year-old matriarch is so proud of the way her daughter handled herself throughout her "tough" delivery and can understand why she was a bit irritable at times.

Speaking at the 2015 Women in Entertainment Breakfast on Wednesday in Los Angeles, Kris told reporters: "She was amazing during the birth.

"I mean, she's a really strong girl - a little cranky when she gets uncomfortable - but, other than that, she's amazing.

"She's doing great right now. I think she's happy that part of it is over, and he's here."

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, was forced to deliver her son on 5 December - almost three weeks before her due date on Christmas Day - after she reportedly suffered from placenta accreta, which means the placenta remains attached to the womb.

However, despite the difficult labour, baby Saint was born a healthy 3.6kg and is said to be doing well.

Kris explained: "He's amazing. We've only known him a few days so we'll see if he's calm, or you know, anxious. You know, we'll see what kind of kid he is!"

And the 'momager' believes Kim and her husband Kanye West, 38 - who already have two-year-old daughter North - couldn't have picked a more fitting name for the tiny tot.

Asked what she thinks of Saint's moniker, she said: "I love the baby name. It's amazing. He's definitely a saint."
