The world finally got a look at little North West, the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
The first photo ever of baby North West, who was born on June 15, was unveiled on matriarch Kris Jenner’s chat show on Friday during Kanye West’s highly publicized appearance.
During an interview with the excited grandmother, the proud new father, 36, shared the photo with the audience and millions of viewers across America, says the Daily Mail.
Kardashian fans have been waiting since North’s June birth to get a glimpse of the tot, who’s been at home with mom Kardashian for the past few weeks. Wearing a black outfit, the tot looks adorable with her chubby cheeks as she’s reaching toward the camera.
The Hollywood couple, who began dating in 2012, reportedly turned down a $4 million photo offer made by an Australian news outlet as West refuses to profit off of his daughter.
“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,” Kanye said on “Kris”.
“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. 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.”
A snap of baby North flashed up on the screen after Kanye and Kris sat down to discuss the new addition to the family. Kris told the singer that she thought her granddaughter was an ‘amazing combination’ of both Kim and Kanye.
“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,” proud grandmother Kris commented.
“Some days she has your lips, some days she has Kim’s lips.” The rapper, meanwhile, joked, “I pray that she looks like her mother when she’s older,” when asked whom he thought his daughter looked like.
During the interview, Kris asked Kanye whether he hopes baby North will follow in her father’s footsteps and become a ‘rapper’.
Kanye told her that he and Kim 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 also cracked a joke at his own expense, “I’m supposed to be this musical genius and everything and I can’t really work the car seat that well.”
Regardless, Kris said he embraced fatherhood quite well and she’d come to know his “soft” and “sweet” side. “Please don’t call me soft as a rapper,” he quipped.
Kardashian followed her mother’s lead, posting her own photo of the baby on Instagram with the simple caption “NORTH.”
West and Kardashian traveled to Oklahoma recently for the funeral of the rapper’s grandfather, but they covered the baby’s carrier with a blanket, obscuring her face.
And Kanye revealed to Kris the depths of despair he went through, telling her that he “felt like he had nothing to live for”.
