Kanye West Reveals First Public Picture Of North West, His Child With Kim Kardashian

UPDATE: Kanye West reveals the first image of his daughter, North West.

Kanye West recently spoke about his appreciation for Kim Kardashian and their new child, North West, in an interview on Kris Jenner's talk show, "Kris." The rapper also spoke about criticism he's gotten regarding his relationship with Kardashian.  

"I could have people saying, 'This is going to damage your credibility as an artist or a designer,'" West says of his relationship in an upcoming interview set to air on "Kris." "And I say, 'I don't care. I love this woman.' Or someone could say, 'When the paparazzi surround you, everyone knows you don't like the paparazzi. Why would you be with this person?' And I'm saying, 'I'm being with this person because I love this person and she's worth it to me." 

West also speaks about how his grandfather's recent passing continues to influence his decision to remain committed to Kardashian.  

"My grandfather just passed and his whole thing was never about money," West said. "It was never about popularity. His whole thing was joy, having joy in his life. [Kim] is my joy. She brought my new joy into the world. There's no paparazzi and there's no blog comment, there's nothing hat's going to take that joy from me."  

TMZ reports that Kanye West will reveal an image of his child, North West, on the program. It was previously reported that he and Kardashian were not planning to sell the first public image of their baby to any tabloids

A portion of Friday's episode of "Kris," set to feature Kanye West, can be seen below. 

UPDATE: Kanye West released today (August 23), a photograph of his child with Kim Kardashian, on Kris Jenner's talk show, "Kris." The image below is the first public photograph of their child, North West.

    North West? What is it with celebrities giving their children weird names? They're just setting them up to be bullied in school.

    no mistake that's kanye's jaw line! no need for a paternity test but it would be funny if she ended up being Kris Humphries Kid or better yet Reggie Bush or Ray J's daughter. His ego would go down the drain along with his career.

    Suburban whites who don't have the street IQ to know the difference between a C.O. and a policeman are still heartbroken that Ross doesnt know Pablo Escobar and that JayZ didn't lose 92 Bricks. The Streets and people who listen to music for entertainment don't concern themselves with weather or not Dr Dre was ever a "Gangsta" or if Pusha T ever sold kilograms or if Snoop ever lived off the earnings of a prostitute....we listen to rap-music for the sound of the instruments and the slickness of the poetry. Suburban whites listen to our music so they can live out a "Ghetto" fantasy through the lives of our rappers which is why they focus so much on what they perceive as real/fake or fabricated/authenticated...our music is their only means of getting a street education so they actually attempt to believe song lyrics are supposed to be biographical criminal confessions.

      Our? Since when were you the representative of all African Americans? Suburban whites and other whites listen to all types of rap, not just what is considered as 'gangsta'. Quit making generalisations.

      You may have valid points generally but it's always ineffective to make a consistent point, when you over generalize.

      I'm a white dude from the suburbs and I listen to rap music for the same reason as you do. Of course it has some kind of allure to hear gangsta rap from a real criminal, but if it's wack it could be the real Pablo Escobar, I wouldn't listen to it.

      @ Nick T: Are you from the Ghetto? There are plenty of poor, low income, middle class white people & other groups who live in the urban, inner cities & within black communities. Like we don't rub off one another? Rap has become mainstream, part of our culture. So what's the big deal? I'm From NYC, the capital of RAP/HIP HOP! We all practically live on top of one another. I'm White & grew up in a housing project in Long Island City, Queens. So I know what Ghetto really is. It's not a fantasy, but a sad reality. Listening to Rap never gave me a street education. My own life experience did. And So what if I liked Rap? That's like saying that a black person can't like classical music . . . it's ridiculous! I knew NAS & Jabari Jones, & later met the guys from Mobb Deep in High Schoolall before becoming famous. We were all cool with one another. I went to St. John's just like Darryl from RUN DMC did. LL Cool J preformed in the first concert I ever went to. I can go on and on. You need to understand that when a rapper raps, his words influence whoever is listening. You should be happy that a black rapper profits from selling his work & is being heard. So stop hating! Where the hell are you from? What makes you think that white people don't influence blacks & vice versa. And what's wrong with that?

    Kanye always goes against the grain. No surprise he would be the rapper to try and turn a hoe into a housewife.

      As if Kaynes' an untouched virgin? His last steady girlfriend was a (pretty) bisexual stripper, who has now settled down as well.

    • Great Track!
      Because unlike you, he speaks correct English? Instead of hating on the fact he's educated (even with being a college dropout, his mom was a college professor) and actually try to come up with more valid reason to discredit him, or hate himm or whatever you're currently trying to do.
