Kim Kardashian West Photoshopped North West Into the Family Christmas Card—but Her Reasoning Behind It Is Totally Understandable

We’ve witness many Kim Kardashian West photoshop moments over the years, so it doesn’t come as a shock that she’s resorted to digitally inserting her own kids into photos.

The reality star recently shared her highly anticipated 2019 Christmas Card and after getting a glimpse of it, fans quickly noticed that North West looked like she was photoshopped in.

Kardashian struggled trying to get her kids to cooperate

Leave it to fans to point out the Kardashian family’s many photoshop moments.

The famous bunch are notorious for digitally editing their photos and since they’ve been doing this for so long, we can spot their photoshopped images from a mile away.

While everyone in the KarJenner clan is guilty of using this popular program, no one utilizes it more than Kardashian West.

The KKW mogul is all about perfection and wants all of her photos to look flawless, even if that means going a little overboard with the digital editing.

Earlier this week, the reality star shared her annual family Christmas photo with her 154 million Instagram followers. After sharing the adorable family snapshot, it wasn’t long before fans were convinced that Kim and Kanye’s oldest daughter, North, had been photoshopped in.

A few days after fans flooded the comments with their photoshop speculations, Kardashian West finally set the record straight while appearing on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

While discussing the photo, the KKW mogul admitted to photoshopping North into the family Christmas Card but only because the 6-year-old wasn’t in the mood to pose alongside everyone else.

“It was a time thing and it was hard to wrangle everyone together so I said I’ll just do my own family…It was so much anxiety with the four kids, North was having a day and I said fine we’ll do it without you but then she said she just wanted to shoot with me,” Kardashian explained. “So I said fine we’ll just Photoshop her in. So that’s not actually her in the picture. The anxiety I went thought to get that picture. There’s always one.”

This isn’t the first time she’s photoshopped her kids into photos

Although some people may not agree with Kardashian photoshopping her kids into family snapshots, getting small children to pose for pictures is a challenge in its self.

Parents all around the world know first hand how difficult it is to get young children to sit still and pose for the camera.

Since Kardashian is a mom of four babies, getting a good picture with all of her kids doesn’t always work out in her favor, which is why photoshop is sometimes the best resort.

Just last month, fans couldn’t keep it together when Kardashian’s youngest daughter Chicago was photoshopped into the family Halloween photo. Though this wasn’t the reality star’s best photoshop moment, the photo was still able to include her entire family.

“This family pic was such a challenge because Chicago was so scared of Dino!” Kim said at the time. “LOL We tried to explain and show her that it was just daddy but she didn’t get the concept yet! So shout out to the photographer for editing her in & making our family Flintstones dreams come true!”

Since Kardashian has never had a problem photoshopping her siblings into photos, why would she feel differently when it comes to her kids?

Though she still needs to work on making her photoshops come across as believable, it definitely looks like she headed in the right direction—sort of.
