Kim Kardashian made her first appearance of any kind whatsoever since giving birth to her daughter, North West, seven weeks ago.
The 32-year-old has been locked away in a fortress of self-imposed solitary confinement (her mom Kris Jenner’s house in Calabasas) ever since, but finally she’s ready to give the world a look at herself…just a glimpse.
Worth the wait?
It’s not that her physical appearance itself was disappointing—that’s not what this post is about—it's just that after teasing it on Instagram, the whole thing ended up being a short video message.
In a pre-recorded message, Kim “surprised” Kris on her new daytime talk show, congratulating the Kardashian matriarch on all her success and apologizing for being unable to show up in person.
“I watch you every single day and you are so amazing,” Kim said. “You really are born to do this. I just want to say I love you and have an amazing show.”
It was just moving enough to bring Kris to tears.
