Kim Kardashian West was 'strong but cranky' during birth of Saint

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 (09.12.15) 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 December 5 - almost three weeks before her due date on Christmas Day (25.12.15) - 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 8 pound 1 ounces 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."
