Kim Kardashian may be getting bored after taking time out of the spotlight to dote on her daughter North West and get her body back in shape. There have been few pictures of the reality star in the media lately, as she has been carefully regulating when she goes out in public.

All of the time out of the limelight may be backfiring, however, as sources say Kardashian, an inveterate attention-seeker, misses being in the public eye. “But she’s really bored! She misses going out all the time to shop or eat and have people in public fawn all over her,” an insider tells RadarOnline. And it seems her boyfriend Kanye West is a big part of why she has stepped out of the public eye since North was born in June.

“Kim really likes the attention she gets from people when she goes out in public or even online, but since Kanye wants her to be more selective about what she’s doing, it isn’t as interactive for her, and she misses her old life.  She wouldn’t trade the baby for anything, of course, but she is saying she is bored right now.”

Kardashian, 32, had her baby at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles June 15, with West skipping out of his own listening party to make it to the hospital in time. 

Following the birth, she spent most of her time at her mother Kris Jenner’s mansion, while her own new mansion in Bel-Air is being renovated.

And though Kardashian has since made a number of smaller appearances, it is not nearly on the same scale as before the birth of her daughter. However, she recently released the ad for her latest perfume fragrance, Pure Honey, so she may be venturing out more over the next few weeks to promote her new scent.
