The first picture of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter North West is out and it was the proud dad who did the unveiling. And in the tradition of reality TV’s most family, North’s first photo was revealed on Kim’s mum Kris Jenner’s show Kris.
"To stop all the noise, I thought it'd be really cool, on her grandmother's season finale, to bring a picture of North," Kanye said, adding that the couple "have not attempted to get paid" for the image. Nope, just a possible ratings spike for Kris then!
But back to the baby. The photograph of North, shot by Kanye himself, shows the cute 10-week-old reaching toward the camera.
New dad Kanye sounded pretty emotional about it all. "After I lost my mother, there were times I felt I would put my life at risk. I felt like sometimes I didn't have something to live for. Now I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for."
He also opened up about the first time he met Kim, revealing that it was love at first sight! "I'm trying to remember if it was her being in the studio when she was Brandy's assistant and I think she brought us in something to drink, or it might have been when I was doing Brandy's video. I remember asking my manager like, 'Who's that girl right there?' and he's like, 'Oh you mean Kim?’”
Kanye added, "I remember seeing pictures of her, I think she was in Australia with Paris Hilton, and reading her name and telling my friends like, 'Man, have you ever seen Kim Kardashian?'"
Kanye eventually cast Kim as Star Wars character Princess Leia in his failed TV pilot Alligator Boots, and finally plucked up the courage to speak to her one day on set.
He explained, "I remember I had this TV show that had puppets in it, like a modern day Jim Henson vibe, and we were doing this skit where I was playing, like, a Star Wars character and I wanted her to be Princess Leia because she was my dream girl.”
"So she came to the show and I just remember being so nervous around her and so in awe that she was actually in front of me and we shot the scene and I was able to start talking to her and just speaking with her... I was in love with her before I ever got to talk to her."
Kim and Kanye have been together for over a year now and the buzz is that they’re planning a big wedding really soon! Kanye’s been ring shopping already!
