Some social media users slammed the reality star for being more interested in her own face than her daughter's when the picture was posted online this weekend – but Kim has explained that's not the case.
Taking to Twitter, she said: "Wait, is this really news that I posted a selfie and cropped my daughter out? LOL.
"Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?!"
Kim, 34, took the picture of North while attending a Disney On Ice show in Los Angeles on Sunday, 14 December.
She also took nephew Mason and niece Penelope, alongside a group of pals with their children.
It was a treat for Mason's fifth birthday.
Mason's mum Kourtney Kardashian wasn't present as she was in the hospital giving birth to her third child.
Kourtney and long-time boyfriend Scott Disick welcomed a second son – their third child together – on Sunday, the same day as their first born's birthday!
So far there are no further details including a name.
