Kim Kardashian has four small reasons to keep up Kanye West‘s nickname.

Despite recent news that her ex, Kanye, 44, requested to change his name, a source close to the star told E! News that Kim, 40, has no plans to give up her married name. It’s been a little over six months since Kim announced their split, and for the SKIMS founder who shares kids north, 8th, Saints, 5, Chicago, 3, and psalm, 2, with the “runaway” rapper – the important thing is that she and her children have the same name, according to the insider.

“Because West is the kid’s last name, she plans to keep it too,” the source told E! News. “It makes it easier and not confusing for them,” reiterating Kim and Kanye’s lifelong bond, the insider added, “They will always be a family and a family unit. She feels it is in the children’s best interests , all of the same surname. “
