Since December 2015 when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed son Saint West into the world, fans have been dying to get a glimpse of the famous infant. The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star and her rapper husband have done a stellar job of keeping him hidden, but as of Monday morning, the veil has come down.
Kim, 35, shared the first official photo of Saint on both her personal app and her website. According to People magazine, she did so in celebration of her late father Robert Kardashian’s birthday, writing that “there’s nothing more” the esteemed lawyer would have wanted than to meet his grandkids. Although her father never met Saint — or big sister North West — Kim decided to share an adorable photo of her precious little prince with the world.

Saint nearly made his television debut on Sunday during E!'s "KUWTK" Season 11 finale. After learning that her son, who was weighing in at a hefty seven pounds, was breech and her home wouldn't be finished in time for his birth, Kim was feeling the pressure from all sides. Mom Kris Jenner attempted to alleviate some of the stress by purchasing an apartment nearby, which she would live in while Kim and Kanye adjusted to parenting not one, but two tiny tots. Kris brought Kim over toward the end of the episode to show her the new pad and, much to their surprise, Kim's water broke. Before Saint could be born on camera, however, the show cut to credits.
While this is the first actual photo of Saint, it is not the first time Kim has given fans a glimpse into his already-fabulous life. On Feb. 10, she uploaded a photo to Instagram of a custom Ralph Lauren bomber jacket her son had been gifted. The brown suede jacket featured Saint's name stitched carefully into the inner silk lining along with a very patriotic patch on the left chest side. Accompanying the personalized gift was a note from Ralph Lauren himself, though it is difficult to make out anything but his signature.
Us Weekly reported in January that the proud mother of two shared a photo of Saint bonding with North, 2, on Instagram. In the precious photo the youngest of the West children held tightly to his big sister's finger. In the caption Kim revealed to followers that North had already dubbed her little brother her "'best friend.'"
