Dennis Rodman reveals name of Kim Jong-Un's baby


Fresh off his latest trip to North Korea, Dennis Rodman let slip the name of good pal Kim Jong-Un’s baby girl — Ju-ae.  

This is the Worm’s second visit to the country, promoting what he calls “basketball diplomacy.” In an interview with The Guardian, Rodman filled the newspaper in on the young dictator’s parenting skills. (Via CNN

“The Marshal Kim and I had a relaxing time by the sea with his family … I held their baby Ju-ae and spoke with Ms. Ri as well. He's a good dad and has a beautiful family." (Via The Guardian

This is of course a big deal because very little is known about Kim’s private life.

He had rarely appeared in public before he was anointed his father’s successor, and it’s not even clear his exact age. (Via CBS

Last year photos emerged showing what appeared to be a baby bump on his wife Ri Sol-ju, but the regime never confirmed she was pregnant. She then disappeared for several months from public view before returning in October. (Via NBC

The sex of their baby brings up even more questions as to who is next in line to the Kim dynasty. While several women in the family have held key government positions, no woman has ever served as Supreme Leader. (Via BBC

Rodman told reporters he did not negotiate the release of Kenneth Bae — the Korean-American missionary imprisoned in North Korea. The NBA champ did tell The Guardian he plans to organize a basketball game between the North Korean and U.S. teams.
