North West Photo: Kanye West Reveals First Pic Of Daughter On 'Kris,' Talks Loving Kim Kardashian
North West, daughter to rapper Kanye West and reality TV star Kim Kardashian, was finally introduced to the public on Friday through a photo West revealed on Kris Jenner’s talk show Kris.
After North’s birth, it was speculated that Kardashian and West might opt to sell their daughter’s first public baby photos to the highest bidding publication. Instead, they chose to go a less ostentatious route – showing a home photo on the baby’s grandmother’s talk show. Following the show, Jenner took to Twitter, while Kardashian took to Instagram to send out the photo to their followers.
"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," West said during his interview with Jenner. "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."
West, who appeared without Kim, endearingly spoke about his longtime girlfriend and coparent. Addressing those who would criticize him for dating someone who puts him so firmly and continually in the public eye, he says, "I don’t care."
"I could have people say, 'This is going to damage your credibility as an artist or designer.' And I say, you know, I don't care, I love this woman," he said of Kardashian."I love this person. She's worth it to me.”
Kardashian recently joined West to attend the funeral of his grandfather Portwood Williams Sr. in Oklahoma. The hip-hop megastar credited his late role model with bestowing on him the idea of having joy and holding onto it. West said, “His whole thing was about joy, having joy in his life. (Kim is) my joy. She brought my new joy into the world."
Though the photo reveal wasn’t a lucrative magazine spread, it did have its benefits – namely, boosting the ratings of Jenner’s freshman show. Now that Kris has run its six-weeks, Jenner waits to see if Fox will pick it up for a full season.
