Kim Kardashian emerges after baby’s birth

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian has shown her face for the first time since giving birth to her baby North West in June.

The 32-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star appeared via video on her mother-and-manager Kris Jenner’s talk show on Friday.

Since welcoming her and boyfriend Kanye West’s daughter on June 15, Kim has been in hiding and has not been captured on film until now.

The star acknowledged her mom on the tape which was shown to Kris, her guest host P. Diddy and the live studio audience.

“I just wanted to say congratulations on your new show,” Kim gushed.

“I’m sorry I couldn’t be there in person, but I’m just loving life a little bit too much at home right now. But I watch you every single day and you are so amazing. You really are born to do this.

“I just want to say I love you and have an amazing show.”

It is claimed Kim is planning on making her first physical public appearance before she attends her half-sister Kylie Jenner Sweet 16 bash on August 17. Apparently she doesn’t want to overshadow her siblings’ celebrations, as she is well aware she will generate a lot of attention from the media.

The star is said to be really keen on coming out when she has shed the baby weight she gained from pregnancy.

“She wants to show up like Heidi Klum and have everyone marvel at how fast she lost the weight,” a source explained to Us Weekly recently. “She won’t leave the house until she’s thinner.”

Kim is said to have already lost at least 20 of the 50lbs she gained during her pregnancy.
