The daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West recently turned one-year-old. The couple were criticised for going on two honeymoons without their child, during which time they were Photoshopping wedding pictures, tweeting, and staging bikini photos rather than spending time enjoying each other.
Even before that, they were criticised on social media for ignoring the baby, with Instagram followers renaming her “IgNORI” and “NORphan” (as in “ignore” and “orphan”) because her own parents spent so much time without her.
In a recent interview, though, Kim claimed to see her daughter every day, “The beauty of having a reality show — especially as we film at the house — is that the baby’s there. So I actually get to be with her — as opposed to if I had a job in an office, where I couldn’t be in the same room with her while I was working.”
Adding that North is around during filming, “She’s always there — you might not see her face, but she’s in there — but for her own privacy, we just don’t have her in that much… [I am] really lucky to have that advantage to spend so much time with her. I get to see her every single day. I’m there with the baby — it’s kind of perfect.”
However, tabloids claim Kim is STILL leaving her child with staff most of the time. For example, the baby flew cross-country recently without either parent.
North West is only one year old, but she’s already racking up frequent flier miles—on her own!
According to a new report, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s little bundle of joy boarded a plane in New York and arrived back home in LA—with an entourage, rather than her very famous mommy and daddy!
Earlier this week, Nori celebrated not only her birthday but also Father’s Day in NYC with her parents. Kanye then flew to France. Kim did take the trip to the Big Apple with her little one, but then left for France for a day.
The 1-year-old, however, rode her dad’s Maserati to JFK, where she flew first class with nannies, an assistant, a nurse and a security guard—but not mom and dad, TMZ claims.

Kim reportedly tells the nannies to walk behind her during the daily pap-walk, and brags to them how “cute” North is compared to Blue Ivy Carter.
Recently, Kim revealed that she’s “strict” with her baby. “I am a strict mother,” Kim said. “I’m really fun and playful, but I’m really strict on nap time, and sleeping in her own crib… And maybe on weekends, she [can] come and sleep in the bed with us. But … I’m not crazy strict.”
