North West has made her adorable debut!
“To stop all the noise, I thought it’d be really cool, on her grandmother’s season finale, to bring a picture of North,” West said after clarifying they “have not attempted to get paid” for the image.
The photograph, shot by West himself, features Kardashian holding their 10-week-old daughter, who is reaching toward the camera.
During the interview, West declared his devotion to Kardashian, 32. “She’s my joy and she brought my new joy into the world,” he stated.
West, 36, also divulged that after the death of his mother, Donda West, he would sometimes feel hopeless, but his new family has changed his outlook to an optimistic one.
