Psalm was born surrogate on Thursday, May 9. He weighed in at 6 lbs. and 9 oz. Kim announced his arrival on Twitter, writing, “He’s here and he’s perfect!”

According to his mother, the baby resembles his sister Chicago. “He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her,” added Kim.

The biblical name, which means a sacred song or hymn, was likely inspired by Kanye’s spiritual path and his Sunday Service, which he brought to Coachella on Easter Sunday.

He is now reportedly looking to start a church of his own. “He is extremely passionate about his faith and wants to share it more regularly with people,” a source told PEOPLE. “He spends a lot of time studying and praying, and wants to share his journey.”

Psalm joins his three siblings including sisters North, 5, and Chicago, 1, and brother Saint, 3.
