Wow! Time flies! Kim Kardashian’s little baby turns one today, North was born on June 15, 2013 at just 4-pounds 15- ounces. She was born five weeks premature due to Kim’s pregnancy complications, and since the day of her birth, she has had the world talking.
Unlike her sister Courtney’s past two births, Kim’s delivery was not filmed or shown on her reality TV Show. Kim has decided to keep her baby’s life as out of the sight of the cameras. She said on an episode of her show that even if she has signed on to be an open book for cameras to film her every move, her daughter and Kanye have not, and for now she will keep them private.
Fans of the show and paparazzi could not wait to get a glimpse of Kim’s new precious baby. Two months after her birth, Kanye made an appearance at Kris Jenner’s show and finally let the world see the first picture of little Nori. The picture was posted through Kris Jenner’s official twitter account and said: “Meet North West.” The first photo of little Nori went instantly viral on social media, with thousands of retweets, and once posted on Instagram, it had more than 500,000 likes on the first hour. The photo shows baby looking straight into the camera, showing her cute chubby cheeks and full head of dark hair.
Since the first photo was posted, the Kardashian celeb continued to give her fans a few photos of baby North through her social media accounts, keeping fans in the loop but still not showing the baby through the lens of television cameras. The next photo posted of North West was taken my Kim while she was at lunch with her sister Courtney and baby girl Penelope. The photo shows how fast the 6-month-old Nori was growing. She had a big smile on her face, dressed in all white, and was grabbing onto her blanket.
At almost one year old, little baby North attended Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s wedding in Florence, Italy, and of course she was dressed for the occasion. Nori wore a Givenchy dress just like her mommy. Photos of the baby posted on Instagram show her in the cute little white dress while being held by her parents, and another photo shows her surrounded by the Kardashian women while Kanye was in the center of the room talking to them.
Knowing the glamorous Kardashians, it was not a surprise when Kim’s family landed a photoshoot spread on Vogue. Kim and Kanye were shown on the cover of the magazine, and Vogue also revealed a behind the scenes video which featured little North interacting with her parents. The pictures were taken by photographer Annie Leibovitz for Vogue’s April edition.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have not given any details yet on how they are planning to celebrate little baby North’s first year, but a source told E News that they will be postponing the celebration until next weekend so they can have all their family together in Los Angeles. Even though little North’s birthday party will have to wait, this is a double celebration for Kanye as her baby girl’s birthday landed on Father’s Day. For now, fans and friends of the family are showing their love for the little baby girl by posting pictures and wishing her a happy birthday through social media.
