While we may not all live in the limelight of reality TV, we all have family, and there are few more important than our surviving grand- and great-grandparents.

No matter how celebrated, it’s always nice to see that grandparents are given recognition and kudos, too.

While reality show star Kim Kardashian has revealed as much as (almost) humanly imagined, one person who has not been revealed or promoted is her maternal grandmother, Mary Jo Shannon, who Kim has welcomed to Paris ahead of the events leading up to her wedding.

In a selfie, Kim says, “My grandma MJ. Her 1st time in Paris.” Grandma Mary Jo looked thrilled, and there's a marked resemblance in their smiles.
