Kanye West has finally revealed the first picture of his and Kim Kardashian’s baby daughter North West on matriarch Kris Jenner’s show.
During an interview with the excited grandmother, proud new father Kanye West, 36, shared baby North’s photo with the audience and millions of viewers across America.
A snap of baby North flashed up on the screen after Kanye West and Kris Jenner sat down to discuss the new addition to the family.
“How cute is that gorgeous baby!! Who do you think she looks like?” Kris Jenner gushed over the snap, to which Kanye West responded with a laugh: “I pray that she looks like her mother when she’s older.”
Kris Jenner told the rapper that she thought her granddaughter was an “amazing combination” of both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
“I think she is an amazing combination of the two of you. She is so adorable. She has Kim’s eyes, I think she has your cheeks and both of your lips. Some days she has your lips and some days she has Kim’s lips,” Kris Jenner said.
“They dissect her,” she explained to the audience.
“Kim would go, <<Look at her ears mom, look at her ears!>> It is so cute how obsessed you guys are.”
Before revealing the snap to the world, Kanye West categorically denied that he and Kim Kardashian had tried to shop first images of their daughter to the media.
“It’s all this talk about baby pictures and <<can you get paid for the baby picture or do you want to put it on a magazine>>,” he explained.
“And for me and your daughter we have not attempted to get paid for anything, we have not attempted to put it on a magazine.”
Kanye West said he decided to share the cute image of his baby on Kris Jenner’s show because he wanted to please little North’s grandmother.
“You just stop all of the noise and I thought it would be really cool on her grandmother’s season finale to bring a picture of North,” he said.
It was then when Kanye West shared the snap, much to the delight of a cheering audience.
During the interview, Kris Jenner asked Kanye West whether he hopes baby North will follow in her father’s footsteps and become a “rapper”.
Kanye West told her that he and Kim Kardashian would be encouraging their daughter to make her own decisions.
“I am going to give her the opportunity to develop her different skill sets and then decide what she is the best at,” he explained.
“…and we will give her the support and let her follow what she loves the most.”
Kanye West had previously hinted that he didn’t want his child to be in the spotlight, declaring: “This isn’t America’s baby.”
It seems the rapper had a change of heart and decided to share the image of baby North in a bid to boost Kris Jenner’s TV ratings.
Kim Kardashian, 32, didn’t make an appearance on the show but Kanye West shared several romantic pictures from their private album.
Before he showed off the new addition to the family, Kanye opened up about his precious daughter.
He told Kris Jenner that that she will give him a lot of stability in his life.
“To me it is such a blessing. I feel it is going to give me the stability that I need to really create and do god’s work,” Kanye West explained.
“She [North] is someone to be accountable for and responsible for.”
It had been widely reported that Kanye West had struggled with the loss of his mother Donda when she died of complications from cosmetic surgery in 2007.
He also revealed to Kris Jenner the depths of despair he went through, telling her that he “felt like he had nothing to live for”.
But he said his saving grace came in the form of Kim Kardashian and the couple’s new baby girl.
Kanye West explained that before Kim Kardashian came along he was constantly “putting his life at risk”.
“After I lost my mother, there were times… well I put myself at risk,” he said.
“I felt like sometimes I didn’t have something to live for.”
Kanye West explained that everything changed when Kim Kardashian came into his life.
Not long after the pair confirmed they were dating, they also found out they were expecting a child.
Little North West arrived into the world on June 15 and Kanye West said that his new family has transformed him.
“Now I have two really special people to live for. A whole family to live for. A whole world to live for,” Kanye West said during the emotional interview.
