Either way, a very happy first birthday today to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's son, who has been enjoying a relatively low-key time of it as he acclimates to life outside the womb. (Low-key as compared to some other members of his very famous family, that is. Not low-key as far as most babies are concerned.)
But though big sister North Westdefinitely had the splashier debut, and now that she's 3 has become a little star all on her own, Saint is still living a fabulous lifestyle.
There's plenty of privacy for diaper changes on private jets when the family travels; designer gifts have been pouring in from day one; and his aunties, uncle, cousins and grandma Kris Jennerhave showered the boy with love and attention.
Not to mention, every picture of him is still a headline-worthy, awww-ensuring event, and his mom and dad couldn't be prouder.
Once that was settled, it was time to celebrate.
"Kanye loves that there is a baby boy in the family now" and he's "already thinking of melodies for baby Saint," a source told E! News a little more than a week after Saint was born on Dec. 5, 2015.
And, naturally, "the amount of presents Saint has received so far is out of this world."
"He said 'Dada' today, three times!" Kim gushed to E! News in July. And even though she would've preferred Saint to have figured out "Mama" first, she didn't seem to mind that her son was a total "Daddy's boy."
"And North is a Mama's girl, so we each have one," she smiled. (She was also secure in the knowledge that Saint was already turning into her mini-me. "We have the same eyes. def a good mix of both of us but he is more me, I think," Kim replied to a fan who commented on the resemblance on Twitter.)
"So truly, I was not posting about my son because I wanted him to be able to go to the park every single day like a normal human being and nobody knows who he is," Kim explained in August at the BlogHer16 conference in Los Angeles. "He's eight months old now, and people thought he didn't exist. People thought I had a whole fake baby and I made this whole thing up because I wasn't posting about it. And to me, that's so ridiculous."
As for when she'd be comfortable with her children having their own social media presence (remember, there are a bunch of very, very young celeb kids who have their own Instagram accounts—Kim and Kourtney Kardashian's kids do not), Kim laughed, "Never!"
"Just kidding," she added. "I think they'll have to ask me and we'll have a conversation about it... I also have heard stories of friends with kids that are early teenagers, like they totally catch their kids lying to them and they'll show up where they're at because they see them on Snapchat. So in a way I'll look at the positive knowing I could track their every move and I'll fully stalk them."
The family held a small early party for Saint on Friday but appear to be foregoing a bigger bash at this time while Kanye recuperates from mental exhaustion and Kim is doing everything she can to make him comfortable.
Meanwhile, the birthday wishes for Saint have been pouring in from the family and close friends, with Aunt Kourtney noting that she can't believe that he's already a year old.
That honor belongs to Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna's almost 1-month-old daughter Dream; Kim took Saint and North to meet their infant cousin at Chyna's house last month, and Dream is also now the proud owner of a pair of teeny-weeny Baby Yeezys.
