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.
Kim Kardashian’s been strangely enigmatic since giving birth to her daughter North West and now she has shown up on Khloe’s Facebook page looking exhausted and enjoying a nap with Khloe and Lamar Odom’s boxer pup, Bernard.
Khloe Kardashian, 29, accompanied the picture with the caption: “I love my lil baby so much,” in an obvious reference to Bernard.
She didn’t make it clear when the picture was taken.
Kim Kardashian finally broke her silence on Thursday – and it wasn’t about her baby.

The new mother accompanied her greeting with photos of them together from the past and the present.
First she tweeted a collage of photos showing the Kardashian siblings when they were little, including a family portrait of them with their late father Robert.
“Then- @khloekardashian The birthday girl! I love you so much!!!!” Kim Kardashian wrote.
Kim Kardashian then tweeted a collage of photos showing her with her siblings with the caption: “Now- @khloekardashian. The most loyal & supportive person on the planet! Life wouldn’t be the same without you Kokes!”
Kim Kardashian, 32, and her boyfriend Kanye West, 36, are ensconced in Kris Jenner’s six-bedroom Hidden Hills, California, mansion after making a middle-of-the-night escape from the Cedars-Sinai hospital on Friday.
While the first-time parents are spending every second with baby daughter North – affectionately known as Nori – they have also employed the services of a 24/7 nurse, according Us Weekly.
“Kim can’t believe how maternal she is on her own,” a source told the publication, adding: “She is breastfeeding constantly… [it] is working for her and she already feels she has bonded with Nori.”
Jessica Simpson is reportedly being sued for partaking in a baby picture conspiracy with OK! Magazine and Getty Images.
Jessica Simpson, 32, is being sued for allegedly posing with a Louisiana couple’s infant and passing off the child as her own on the cover of the celebrity weekly magazine.
According to the suit, originally reported by The Times-Picayune in New Orleans, Jessica Simpson was involved in the plot to make more money after she had already signed a six-figure deal with another publication for the rights to the first pictures of her actual child.
Christopher Hurst and Tracy Gregory took their teenage daughter and infant son to the Dillard’s department store in Metairie on October 2011 to meet Jessica Simpson, who was promoting her clothing line, according to the lawsuit.
As they were standing in line to get the star’s autograph, Christopher Hurst alleges a stranger suggested he allow Jessica Simpson – who was pregnant with her first child at the time – to hold the infant.

Christopher Hurst agreed, but when he handed his son to Jessica Simpson, “at least one previously unseen photographer hurriedly moved to the front of the line and began taking pictures of the child”, alleges the suit.
The couple were taken aback when months later OK! Magazine published the picture of Jessica Simpson with their child on the cover of its April 16, 2012 issue.
The headline read, My First Days as a New Mom, giving the impression that it was Jessica Simpson’s baby.
The lawsuit claims another publication had paid Jessica Simpson $800,000 to publish her first baby picture, but that she and OK! devised the plan to pass off another baby as her own in order to make more money.
The infant’s parents claim they were never offered and therefore never signed a release form allowing their son’s photo to be used.
The couple are suing Jessica Simpson, OK! Magazine, and Getty Images – who had the photos for sale or licensing on its website until March – for damages in excess of $75,000.
“What happened in this situation was wrong,” said Michael North, the couple’s attorney.
“It’s not something that ever should happen. Our immediate aim is to find out how it happened and why it happened and determine who is responsible.”
