10 Adorable Photos Reveal What Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Are Really Like As Parents

Kim Kardashian West and her husband, rapper Kanye West, are famous for a lot of things, not all of which are positive. But no matter how you feel about them as people, it’s hard not to smile at photos of their adorable children. Kim and Kanye are parents to North, Saint, and baby Chicago, and they’re all beautiful.

Everyone has an opinion on this duo. And they can both be rather … intense. But when it comes to their parenting, these adorable photos show that they’re nothing but nurturing.

In this Instagram photo, Kim is cuddling with her babies in bed. Her caption reads “Welcome to the good life,” and it’s clear she’s enjoying the moment. And we can’t help but notice the way that Saint is staring at her adoringly and little Chicago snuggles up to her contently. These little ones have a great relationship with their mama.

Kim posted this shot to her Instagram account on May 27. The family is in Wyoming, and Kim and Kanye are enjoying a nice hike with their two older kids. Kim and Kanye have both shown their commitment to staying physically fit, so it’s great to see them being active with their children.

Despite the fact that everyone is dressed casually, we can’t help but notice North and Saint’s outfits are impeccably coordinated in this photo. Their parents’ style is already rubbing off on them.

You’ll find plenty of pictures of all the kids on Kanye’s Instagram account, especially his son, who clearly adores his daddy. But this picture of Kanye and North passed out after a long day is especially heartwarming. She’s still wearing her little boots, and he’s dozing protectively next to her in a rocking chair.

Of course, nothing in this family is posted by accident, and it’s entirely possible that Kanye is faking his snooze. But it really doesn’t matter — it’s still adorable.

It’s actually not sweet little Saint that makes this photo on Kanye’s Instagram account so precious, although he’s definitely adorable. It’s the way Kanye is looking at his wife that makes it so memorable. Kanye often appears stone-faced in public, and when we do see him smile, it’s usually at his family. Kanye and Kim’s relationship is certainly full of posed photos and promoting things that aren’t always authentic, but it’s clear his love for her is very real.

Since they are public figures with millions of followers, both Kim and Kanye definitely receive more than their share of criticism, especially when it comes to their parenting. And when Kim posted this photo of North and Saint in the bath in May, it was met with some harsh comments. Some people thought it was inappropriate of her to post a photo of her children in the bath when so many people could see it (including “pedafiles,” as one commenter suggested).

But notice that no private parts on the children are showing, and they look happy and relaxed. Kim was clearly just capturing a moment while being careful not to reveal too much. Parents have been taking pictures of their kids bathing for years, and although we do need to take precautions on social media, it’s safe to say her fans may be overreacting.

Aside from posting adorable photos regularly, both Kim and Kanye have expressed their joy at becoming parents. Kim says having kids has “changed her soul” and made her care more about the world. She has even admitted motherhood matters to her more than fame, which is really saying a lot.

“I’m a completely different person,” she said a few years ago. “If it all went away, and I was just a mom, I would love my life.”

Kanye likes to keep things a little more private, but he said this about baby North in 2015, making America’s hearts collectively melt:

“When I look in North’s eyes, I’m happy about every mistake I’ve ever made. I’m happy that I fought to bring some type of reality to this world we choose to stay in right now, driven by brands and corporations.”
