- Kim Kardashian had to tell North West how she became famous and why everyone knows who Kanye West is.
- Kim said North is obsessed with her “newfound” fame and shouts it from their car.
Once upon a time, there was a man named Robert Kardashian who was friends with a certain football player, and Robert married Kris Jenner. Robert and Kris had Kim Kardashian, and the rest is history!
Except not. There’s a ton that happened between then and now, including a crazy murder case, Kris’s short-lived music career, Kim’s tenure as Paris Hilton’s assistant, and Kim’s sex tape. There’s a ton this mogul is famous for, and Kim had to explain her origin story to her 5-year-old daughter, North West. In true Kardashian fashion, she did it on video, and it’s incredibly awkward and hilarious.
In the latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, North asked Kim why they’re always followed by paparazzi, and Kim used it as a teaching moment. Kim previously told her they’re just famous because they’re on TV, but this time she elaborated a little more. She told North, ‘To get very technical—my name is Kim Kardashian. And Daddy is Kanye West. And Daddy is a singer, performer, artiste. Mommy has so many talents I can’t even begin to name them.’ If you watch the video, it’s even more uncomfy than it sounds:

And while Kim was talking to Jimmy Kimmel on his show last night, she said she wasn’t being totally serious. ‘I was obviously a little bit joking.’ She added, ‘As they get older, we’ll continue to have that conversation and just explain to them.’
Then she explained that North gets excited about her status as a baby celebrity and shouts that she’s with Kim and Kanye while they’re out in public. Kim remembered, ‘The other day I took North to a wedding and she was rolling down the window and going, ‘Kim Kardashian’s in here!’ like, screaming to all the drivers, saying: ‘Hi! I’m North West! Kanye West is my dad!’ And I was just like, ‘Oh my gosh,’ rolling up the window and putting on the child lock.’ Ugh, kids. Gotta love ’em.
