The holiday season can be so hectic and stressful that getting the whole family together can prove to be quite the struggle, just ask Kim Kardashian-West!
The reality television revealed the West family Christmas card photo on Twitter last Friday. The photo features all four West children and their parents snuggled up on the staircase in gray and white sweatsuits. The caption reads, "The West Family Christmas Card 2019."
The photo shows a cheesin’ Saint West at the forefront of the photo with a smiley baby Psalm nestled on Kim K’s lap. Then, a poised North can be seen hangin’ next to Mama while little Chicago sits on Kanye’s lap.
At a quick-glance, nothing seems off about the photo, but if you look closer, you’ll notice one of the family members had to be carefully Photoshopped into the card.
During a visit to “The Ellen Show,” Kim revealed that North had to be digitally added into the festive photo because she was in a bad mood the day the photographer came.
“It’s the most anxiety to get four kids together smiling in a room,” the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" told the host on Tuesday’s episode. “North was having a day, so she refused to be in the shoot. She just was crying because she wanted her specific hairstyle, whatever.”
Figuring that not every fight is worth it, Kim allowed North to sit out of the shoot.
"I said, ‘Fine you’re not going to be in the card. That’s the decision, you’re not going to be in the card. I’m just going to take the family card without you,’" Kardashian said adding, "And she was fine with that. The next day she woke up and was like ‘Mommy, I really want to do a card.’"
Wanting the full family to be included in the card, Kim caved once again and called the photographer, who agreed to take an individual photo of North and superimpose it on the original shot.
"I would have rather done it this way than (go through) the anxiety I went through," Kardashian admitted. "I mean, Chicago has a cookie in her hand, I was really holding Psalm there, Saint was really there... But North, it was a lot."
This is the second time Kim was forced to photoshop one of her children into a family photo.
This past October, the star said the photographer had to paste Chicago into the Halloween photo because she was terrified of Kanye’s Dino costume from “The Flinstones" and refused to pose for a photo.
“We tried to explain and show her that it was just daddy but she didn’t get the concept yet,” she recalled in an Instagram caption at the time.
The Kardashian-West family is known for their cohesive holiday portraits in matching outfits. The Christmas card photo drop comes just days after Kim posted a photo to Instagram, showing off sisters Chicago and North as they sported matching leotards and shorts.
“That time North dressed Chi in matching outfits,” the caption reads. The photo shows the two wearing matching leotards, jean shorts, and sneakers, all while topping off the look with a pair of seemingly homemade bunny ear headbands.
Is it possible they’re all taking a page from Aunt Kylie Jenner’s book? We all know the beauty mogul has been known to sport a matching outfit or two with her gal pals.
During a snow-filled trip to take part in some winter sports, Jenner posted a photo of herself with Yris Palmer as they showed off their matching Chanel getups.
It’s the season of matching for the Kardashian/Jenner/Wests!
