In April, the Skims founder delighted her social media followers after sharing a never-before-seen photo of herself with her mum Kris Jenner and grandmother MJ, looking like you have never seen them before.

In the picture, posted on the beauty mogul's Instagram account, all three women were wearing blonde wigs at various lengths.

Kim rocked a sleek, straight style, while Kris kept her trademark pixie cut. MJ, meanwhile, opted for a full fringe and a bouncy blowdry.

In the caption, Kim revealed a hilarious secret about her grandmother, writing: "My favourite ladies. Fun fact, my grandma has a creep IG account to see what we are all up to."

The reality star has been enjoying spending quality time with her family during the past few months and put on a united front with husband Kanye West following his much-talked-about Twitter posts in July. 

However, the family seem to have put that well and truly behind them, and were recently all smiles in a sweet photo with Kris, Khloe and Kourtney.

While Kim spends majority of her time at her LA mansion, she admitted at the start of the pandemic to sneaking out to her mum's house so that she could have a few minutes' peace and quiet away from her children.

The reality star took part in an interview with Jimmy Fallon from Kris' glam room at her Hidden Hills home during the quarantine in the spring, but Kim reassured the host that the family had abided by the social distancing measures.

"Where are you?" the host asked Kim, to which she replied: "I'm in my mum's glam room, Kylie did my makeup and my hair. I don't have anyone to do it and I'm not that good, so she did it."

On how the family are maintaining the lockdown rules, Kim continued: "That's the first time I've seen her [Kylie], the whole family are distancing so we haven't even seen each other.

"I snuck out and I'm at my mum's house in her glam room, because there's a door from the outside so that's all that she will let us in. And I had to get away from my kids!"
