Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's new baby will finally be unveiled to the public Friday.
West will reveal a photo of baby North "Nori" West, the first glimpse fans will receive of the couple's daughter since her June 15 birth, on Kris Jenner's daytime talk show, TMZ reported.
The segment reportedly already taped and will air on Friday's finale episode of Jenner's Kris daytime talk show. The new series is completing its special summer trial run this Friday and Jenner is reportedly hoping the photo will help the show deliver huge ratings and get Kris picked up as a regular series. Jenner "desperately wants" her show to remain on the air, according to TMZ.
The picture of North was reportedly flashed on a big screen only momentarily so the audience members couldn't take a photo of the monitor on their cell phones. When the segment airs tomorrow on Kris, the photo will apparently stay up for much longer before it's taken down.
Us Weeklyobtained a short clip of West's appearance on the show, and the new father gushed about Kardashian and their child during a sit-down interview with Jenner. First and foremost, the 36-year-old rapper defended his romantic relationship with theKeeping Up with the Kardashians star.
"I could have people saying, 'This is going to damage your credibility as an artist or as a designer.' And I say, you know, 'I don't care, I love this woman.' Or someone could say, 'When the paparazzi surround you, how could you -- all the people around you know you don't like paparazzi. Why would you be with this person?'"
"And I'm saying, 'I'm being with this person because I love this person and she's worth it to me.'"
West explained he feels he's happily living out his grandfather's philosophy.
"You know, my grandfather just passed and his whole thing, it was never about money, it was never about popularity. His whole thing was joy, just joy, like having joy in his life. And [Kim is] my joy and she brought my new joy into the world. And there's no paparazzi, there's no blog comment, there's nothing that is going to take that joy from me," he said.
West also reportedly opened up about the 2007 death of his mother Donda West, which took a huge toll on him.
"There were times [after she died], 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," the rapper told Jenner.
