Dennis Rodman announces name of Kim Jong-un's baby


Kim Jong-un and his family have been very secretive when it comes to the name of their baby daughter, but that didn’t stop Dennis Rodman from accidentally leaking the name of the newest member of the Kim dynasty.

From the Guardian:

When it comes to announcing a baby’s name to the world, some will have a quiet word with friends and family while others might send a discreet email.

But the Kim dynasty in North Korea has never been one for the orthodox. On Sunday, the name of Kim Jong-un’s baby became known almost by accident, courtesy of a certain former US basketball star who keeps popping up in Pyongyang.

Dennis Rodman has already described Kim as an “awesome guy”. On Sunday, he told the Guardian the leader was also a “good dad” to his baby daughter, whom he named as Ju-ae.

“The Marshal Kim and I had a relaxing time by the sea with his family,” Rodman said [...]

“I held their baby Ju-ae and spoke with Ms Ri [Sol-Ju, Kim's wife] as well. He’s a good dad and has a beautiful family. Kim told me, ‘I’ll see you in December.'”

It is still really bizarre to read stories about Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong-un, but that is the world we live in these days.

Hopefully the leak won’t cost Rodman in his ambassador role to his good buddy.
