Want to see Saint West, son of Kim and Kanye? Check out the first public photo

Kim Kardashian’s cry face is more public than son Saint West’s face

Want to see the first picture Kim Kardashian has shared publicly of her son, Saint West? It's now everywhere.

Mrs. Kanye West put a picture of her baby boy up on her website and app early Monday in honor of her late father, Robert Kardashian, who would have been 72.

"Today is my dad's birthday," she wrote. "I know there's nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren. So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all." The shot, embedded below, shows the nearly 3-month-old asleep on his back, arms stretched above his head, in a pose you might not want to look at if your goal is to stay awake on a Monday morning. (Kid knows how to relax, that's all we're saying.)


For the record:

10:42 a.m.: An earlier version of this story said Saint's picture could not be seen free of charge. The image is among the posts on Kim Kardashian's website and app that are available to the public without paying a subscription fee.


Hours after the photo showed up, and after headlines popped up — including on this blog — noting that it had been put up on the mixed-access app and website, the image went wide on Twitter and Instagram.

Still haven't had enough of the family, whose show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" had its season finale on Sunday? Keep on going for a look at the rest of Kim's nearest and dearest, apparently exhausted by life in general. (Did you hear, papa Kanye West has an album out or something? Busy man.)
