Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have kept a dignified silence since the arrival of their baby, North West, but Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian hasn't been so muted taking a sneak picture of the reality TV star taking a well-earned nap and sharing it with her facebook followers.

CELEBRITY BABY NAMES

It's the first picture that the family has released of Kim Kardashian since the arrival of North West and to unsuspeting onlookers it looks as if Kim is feeling the effects of being a new mother as she takes a nap next to Khloe and Lamar Odom’s pet pooch, Bernard. Khloe touchingly captioned the snap, which she posted on her facebook page: “I love my lil baby so much.”

But in true Kardashian style the sisters have caused a frenzy in the social media sphere when, in fact, this cute pic was taken before the latest edition to the family was born.

Kim has gone on to break her own social media silence since the birth by sending sister Khloe birthday wishes. Kim posted two sets of montages to celebrate her younger sister, Khloe, turning 29. The first set were super cute family pictures of Khloe as a young girl with the caption: "Then - @khloekardashian The birthday girl! I love you so much!!!!”

Kim then went on to add another set of more recent snaps with the caption: “Now - @khloekardashian The most loyal & supportive person on the planet! Life wouldn't be the same without you Kokes!”

It seems as if the arrival of North West has bought the Kardashian sisters even closer together.
