Kim Kardashian West has hit back at criticism of a recent Instagram picture in which her daughter North had been cropped out.

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.

This is the picture that sparked controversy.

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.

Kim also posted this cute picture of North.

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.
