Introducing Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West

Kim Kardashian has taken Kanye West's last name.

The reality TV star, who tied the knot with the rapper in Florence, Italy last Saturday, changed her name to Kim Kardashian West on her Twitter and Instagram accounts. The brunette beauty, who has 11-month-old daughter North with Kanye, previously revealed she wanted to legally have the same last name as her third husband and daughter.

She told E! News: “It'll be Kim Kardashian West. Not hyphened. Maybe make [Kardashian], like, the middle.”

Kim, 33, and Kanye are currently enjoying an adventurous honeymoon in Ireland, where they rented bikes and hired a local guide to go mountain biking with four security guards and personal assistants in the Ballyhoura Mountains in County Limerick at 8am on Tuesday.

Fergal Somers, manager of the local tourism organisation, Ballyhoura Failte, told the MailOnline: “They had four staff with them. They hired bikes for €35 and a guide for €75.”

The 36-year-old rapper fell in love with the area after visiting it following his concert in nearby Cork in July 2009.

Mr. Somers said: “They only booked the day before. They went hiking and biking, as this area is well known for it. One of the party had visited the region before – so knew about us that way.

“The guide said they had an absolute blast. He took them to the pub afterwards where they had a pint of Guinness I believe.” 

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty and the New Slaves hitmaker also feasted on a picnic of local produce, including sandwiches, tarts and homemade apple juice, prepared by The Bakehouse in Bruff, Co Limerick.
