Celebrity dad Kanye West accidentally flashed a smile at paparazzi cameras when going on what appears to be his first outing with Kim Kardashian and their new baby girl North West. On Aur. 15, 2013, celeb gossip website TMZ ran the first pics of the happy family on their website -- something noted by mainstream media sources like USA Today and MTV.
Aside from occasionally being caught smiling when looking at a scoreboard at a basketball game, the cantankerous music icon is well known for being sullen and brooding most of the time. But now that he's officially the baby daddy of the woman who is arguably the most famous Kardashian sister, it seems his countenance is relaxing a bit. To that end, the paps were able to capture him pretty much so chaperoning the new mom and celebrity baby on the way to one of their first doctor's appointments outside of the house since the family came home from the hospital.
USA Today writes, "Clad in black leggings and a chambray shirt with a jacket tied conveniently around her waist, Kardashian kept her post-birth figure pretty covered up. Also kept covered up: baby North, who remained hidden under a blanket draped over her car seat, which was carried by another individual (maybe the nanny?). Oh, and Kanye is there, too, and even -- wait for it -- flashes a smile."
Whether he was smiling because he is happy with Kim K and the newborn babe or because someone in his nearby vicinity made a funny remark or cracked a joke is not known. What entertainment news journalists know is that the photo captured by TMZ is the equivalent of Hollywood pop culture gold.
According to Hollywood insiders, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West kept the baby's bassinette covered because they plan to debut pics of the newborn via their own social media websites. However, it is more than likely that an outlet like People magazine will get to run exclusive new baby photos first.
