Kim Kardashian Reveals What Was Really Happening in That Perfect Family Photo

It's no easy feat capturing the perfect family photo—just ask Kim Kardashian. She took to Instagram to post the Wests' first full family photo of 2018, and upon first glance, it appears to be, well, flawless.

Seen in a gorgeous midi dress, the family matriarch is holding a sleeping Chicago West. Kanye looks utterly cool in a white button-down and just so happens to match with 2-year-old Saint. Meanwhile, North (who is the only one smiling in the photo) looks so adorable as she holds up the peace sign.

Despite how picture-perfect the image appears, however, the process of capturing the family of five together in a single snap was not so simple. "I don't think you really understand how hard it is to take a good family pic. This was all we got before all three kids started crying. I think I cried too," she captioned the photo. But wait, there's more.

In a follow-up tweet, she revealed a bit more about what was so hard about the photo. "One hand holding the baby and the other hand grabbing the back of Saint's shirt because he kept running away lol," she wrote. And if you look closely enough, you'll see North is actually standing on her mom's foot, as well.

Regardless of all the hard work behind the scenes, the final product is an adorable (and very relatable) family snapshot. Now, read on to see the full photo and Kardashian West's hilarious tweet below.
