Kim Kardashian released the first picture of her son Saint West to mark her late father Robert Kardashian’s birthday on Monday, the Daily Mail reports.
Writing a tribute to the lawyer on her website KimKardashianWest.com the 35-year-old explained: ‘Today is my dad’s birthday.
‘I know there’s nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren. So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all.’
The two-month-old is seen dressed in a simple cable knit cotton vest, arms outstretched beside his head as he sleeps soundly on a white sheet.
His hands are clenched, as the baby dreams quietly.
February 22 would have been the 72nd birthday of the grandfather Saint will never get to meet – lawyer Robert Kardashian – and it is obviously a date Kim wanted to remember.
On her website she added a further tribute to the patriarch of the Kardashian clan, who died in 2013.
‘Happy Birthday dad!’ she wrote. ‘I can’t believe you would have been 72 today.
‘So much has gone on in our lives since you’ve been gone, and I know you have been my guardian angel seeing everything unfold! I love you and miss you so much!’
Kim and her husband Kanye West welcomed their son back on December 5, but had not released any images of the infant until now.
