Why Kim Kardashian photoshopped North West on their Christmas card

When you’re North West, the family holiday card works around you. 

Just days ago, Kim Kardashianunveiled the West family’s Christmas card, a notable shift from the usual Kardashian-Jenner family Christmas shoot. Instead of featuring her many siblings and all of her nieces and nephews, Kim’s 2019 card honed in on her, her husband and their four children cozy at home. 

As for the switch from a big group shot, a source told E! News, the Kardashian-Jenner family has “decided to each do their own Christmas card photos with their individual families.” “It’s not that the family couldn’t agree on a theme,” the source elaborated. “They all just wanted to highlight their families individually and truly haven’t made the time to coordinate the card.”

The KKW Beauty mogul explained to Ellen DeGeneres that “it was just a time thing of why I couldn’t wrangle everybody.” However, while she had less people to coordinate, “even that was so dramatic,” the reality star said. “It’s the most anxiety to get four kids together smiling in a room.”

In fact, she couldn’t get four kids together smiling in a room. As the star revealed, daughter North West “was having a day, so she refused to be in the shoot.”

Kim noted her firstborn was crying because she wanted a “specific hairstyle,” so they agreed the youngster would not be on the card—that is, until the next day. 

Having seen the finished card, we know North ended up in the portrait…but how? According to her famous mom, the tot woke up the next day and said she wanted to be on the card. “Thank God the photographer was still in town,” Kim told DeGeneres. 

So, the mother and daughter had their own photo shoot together and, after cropping Kim out of those snaps, North got photoshopped in. “And it looks like a beautiful card!” Kim quipped.
