Kim Kardashian, meanwhile, shared some very special photos of herself and her husband, which had been taken in London just after they found out that they were expecting North. In the caption, she wrote: "Fun fact about this pic. I just found out I was pregnant with North and made Kanye fly to London for my Kardashian Kollection appearance because I was freaking out. He took me to Hakkasan and then Häagen-Dazs to make me feel better."

While Kanye is part of the famous Kardashian family, he rarely appears on their reality show, preferring to keep his private life out of the public eye. The doting dad has also made sure that his children are limited to exposure on the show. Kim opened up about her husband's decision while talking to Ashley Graham on her podcast, Pretty Big Deal. She said: "I have a good balance, if our kids are ever on the show, Kanye has to view it and approve it. Sometimes I will send him a picture of the kids and he will post it, and I won't necessarily want it to be posted. Or he will say to me that we should chill out on posting the kids. So we have our moments and it changes all the time."
