Kim Kardashian had to photoshop North into their Christmas card this year

So earlier in the week we got a glimpse at the annual Kardashian-West Christmas card.

A wholesome family picture, the card features Kim and Kanye sitting on stairs with their four kids, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

Kim uploaded the snap to her Instagram, and captioned it:

“The West Family Christmas Card 2019.”

Cute, right? And with a cool 8.5 million likes already, it’s proving very popular.

But if you look very closely at the image, you may notice something is ever so slightly off.

What, exactly? North has actually been photoshopped into the family portrait.

Kim opened up to Ellen on The Ellen DeGeneres Show about what happened on the day of the shoot

“It’s the most anxiety to get four kids together smiling in a room,” she said.

“North was having a day, so she refused to be in the shoot. She just was crying because she wanted her specific hairstyle, whatever.”

“And even that was so dramatic,” Kim told Ellen.

Thankfully, the next day little North had a change of heart, and decided she wanted to be involved.

“Thank god the photographer was still in town,” Kim said.

And so the photographer rocked up and snapped North, and photoshopped her into the card.

In fairness, you can’t tell, unless you look really REALLY hard.

Good job Kimmy.
