Inside Kim Kardashian's Festive Family Holiday Photo Shoot - See the Sweet Pics!
Kim Kardashian unveiled her family holiday portrait for 2017, and it's just as adorable as one would expect. In the photo, the stylish (and barefoot) Kardashian-West clan don denim jeans and white tops while standing in front of an all-white background. 2-year-old Saint appeared to have little interest in the cameras flashing as evident by the fact that he's looking away in the somehow still perfect picture. Although the remaining photos are a part of the larger Kardashian-Jenner Christmas card, it marks Kanye's first ever appearance in their annual tradition. Kim recently hosted a "tea for three"-themed baby shower and has a lot to be excited about this holiday season. The 37-year-old reality star is reportedly expecting her third child via surrogate before the year ends.
