Kim Kardashian and North West Have Officially Joined TikTok, and Fans Are Obsessed: ‘The Kardashian Kids Era Is Coming’

Brace yourselves: The next generation of Kardashians is well on its way to filling the space that older relatives left since Keeping Up With the Kardashians ended. The ever-growing family has plenty of kids who are poised to pick up the mantle, and now there’s a sign that the transition has begun. That’s because Kim Kardashian West and daughter North West have officially launched a TikTok account — and fans can’t get enough.

While some celebrities work to keep their kids out of the spotlight, that was never the Kardashian way. After all, the famous sisters gained their own massive careers after being thrust into the spotlight of reality TV while most of them were children themselves. It may have been inevitable, then, that the younger generation would eventually step into those same roles.

North West, the oldest daughter of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, has often accompanied her parents in photo shoots and on stage. She’s also made some guest appearances in her famous mom’s social media accounts. 

Now, though, she’s getting a more direct role to play. As Seventeen reports, the mother-daughter duo launched a joint account (named simply @kimandnorth) on Thanksgiving morning, 2021. The bio makes it clear that the account is “managed by an adult,” likely a nod to TikTok’s terms of service and the COPPA regulations surrounding kids’ internet use. 

Fans are thrilled to see North West stepping into the spotlight

Though the account is not even a month old yet, the famous family had no trouble amassing followers in a hurry. As Cosmopolitan reports, early posts included some glimpses into Thanksgiving festivities, including pedicures and pumpkin-themed decorations. Soon, the account filled up with dancing videos and lip synching — staples in the TikTok community. 

The duo have managed to pull in 2 million followers already, and they’re racking up plenty of likes. A recent video shows both mother and daughter racing down a giant inflatable slide. Another highlights North West’s outfit, including a T-shirt for her dad’s famous album, College Dropout

Fans have been gushing about the possibilities of a new generation taking over the Kardashian influence. One wrote, “This is the content we’ve been waiting for! The next gen is here.” Another chimed in with “The Kardashian kids era is coming.”

Kourtney Kardashian and Penelope Disick have also joined TikTok

More evidence of the Kardashian kids’ readiness to take up the role of social media gurus can be found in Kourtney Kardashian and Penelope Disick. North West’s slightly older cousin debuted her own TikTok account with her mom around the same time, and she gave fans a quick tour of her bedroom. 

That account, dubbed @pandcourt, has also grown to 2.5 million followers, and has the same disclosure that the account is “managed by an adult.” From making s’mores to showing off her Santa-themed jammies, Penelope Disick seems capable of keeping fans invested. The account has accumulated an astounding 27.3 million likes, a sign that fans are definitely ready to give the Kardashian kids a chance at taking on their parents’ fame. 

Many have speculated about just what these kids will do as they get older. Will they follow in their parents’ footsteps as social media influencers? Or perhaps they will tackle careers in entertainment as musicians or actors? There’s also the possibility that they’ll take on roles within their parents’ businesses. From clothing to makeup, there are lots of options available in that realm. Maybe, though, they’ll decide to throw us all for a loop and take on something completely different and unexpected.
