Kim Kardashian was pictured holding baby daughter North West today while out and about in Paris ahead of her wedding.

After spending the morning at the gym, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star toted a relaxed looking North while walking with sister Kourtney on Tuesday (20 May).

While we've all seen pictures of North on Kim's social media accounts and in her recent Vogue magazine cover spread, this is the first time we've seen Kim openly allowing photographers to snap a picture of her little one.

The reality star became a mum for the first time in June 2013 when she welcomed North West, her daughter with rapper fiancé Kanye West.

North was initially shielded from the public's eye before gradually being photographed more and more, although it's believed Kim and Kanye have drawn the line at North being filmed for any of the Kardashian family reality shows.

Today, 33-year-old Kim looked chic and stylish in her favourite combination of skintight pencil skirt, figure-hugging top and sky-high stilettos.

Little North wore a black pinafore and tights.

Mother-and-daughter jetted into Paris at the weekend, where they met up with Kanye ahead of this weekend's hugely anticipated wedding.

This was the very first picture of North, shared 23 August 2013.

Kanye had been studying fashion and working on his new music in Florence, Italy, while Kim had been at home in the States with North, where she was promoting her E! reality show at the NBC Universal Upfronts in New York and no doubt doing a bit of last minute wedding planning.

Early reports indicated Kim and Kanye would wed in Paris, a city where they own an apartment and spend a lot of time. Kim herself even stated in an interview earlier this year that they'd chosen France for the nuptials.

However, last week it emerged that Kimye had secretly been planning to exchange vows in Florence, with Paris serving only as the pre-wedding destinaton for guests.

Kim posted this photo to Instagram on 11 May to mark her first Mother's Day with North.

A spokesperson for the Florence mayor appeared to confirm this by stating Kim and Kanye had rented the 16th century Belvedere Fort for their nuptials on 24 May.

Neither Kim nor Kanye has clarified the rumours.

The Kardashian-Jenner clan has been flying into Paris over the past couple of days, with Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian, along with Kris, Kylie and Kendall Jenner all seen jetting out of Los Angeles.

Details about the wedding have been kept firmly under wraps, including who is on the guest list, although Beyoncé and Jay Z have long been rumoured to have been invited.

So far, there's no word on what designer Kim will wear as she walks down the aisle or even where she and Kanye will honeymoon.
