All signs point North! Over two months after her early birth, North West, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s little girl made her debut on grandmother Kris Jenner’s talk show Friday, Aug. 23. Rapper West, 36, sat down with Jenner, 56, to chat about his enduring romance with Kardashian, 32, and fatherhood — sharing a snapshot of his little girl.
The sought-after photo was then posted on via the syndicated talk show’s Twitter account, @krisjennershow.

Speaking about being a dad, the “Black Skinhead” rapper said “it takes time to understand” the enormity of the transition. “You’ve made a brand-new person. The thing I think about as a dad is just protection. That’s my only goal — to protect my daughter. That’s my instinct.” One hilarious admission: “I’m embarrassed when I can’t work a car seat!”
After his mother Donda West’s 2007 death, the Grammy winner admitted he was at an all-time low. “I would put my life at risk. I didn’t have something to live for. Now I have two very special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for.”

“[Kim is] my joy. She brought my new joy into the world,” he added.
During the hour-long chat, West also spoke about meeting Kardashian for the very first time, years ago, shooting a comedy video. “I was so in awe of her, she was my dream girl. I was in love with her before I could ever talk to her.”

“I just dreamed about being next to her,” he said later on during the show. “I keep saying it, I don’t wanna start jumping up and down on the coach!”
