Kim Kardashian's Baby to Make Public Debut on Kris Jenner's Talk Show
It looks like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are ready to introduce their baby to the world.
After more than two months of being hidden from the public, baby North will have her picture shown on grandmother Kris Jenner's talk show, Kris, on Friday, TMZ reported.
Various reports had run rampant with speculation that the couple were trying to figure out how to introduce their baby to the world, ranging from a Twitter post to the cover of a major magazine.
But the reveal on Kris is likely to give the show a ratings boost as executives decide whether to make a commitment to the talker beyond its current six-week summer test run on select Fox-owned TV stations. Friday marks the last day of the show's test run.
During Monday's taping, the baby's photo was reportedly flashed on the screen very quickly, so that nobody could snap photos of the image. The photo apparently will be shown much longer when the episode airs.
On Tuesday, distributor Twentieth TV released a photo from the forthcoming episode showing West making an appearance.
Sources close to the talk show would say only that Friday's episode is a "must watch" when reached by The Hollywood Reporter.
Last week, Kardashian made her first public appearance since giving birth, when she and West took their daughter to a doctor's visit. The baby was in a car seat, covered by a blanket.
The fresh-faced Kardashian wore a significantly more casual outfit than we're using to see her in: a button-down denim shirt, black sweatpants and suede fringe boots. She donned a camouflage sweatshirt around her waist. (See the photos here.)
She also has appeared in two videos, appearing only from the neck up, that aired on Jenner's talk show.
Baby North, who has no middle name, was born five weeks premature but is said to be healthy.
