North "Nori" West is the firstborn child of reality star Kim Kardashian and rap icon Kanye West, affectionately nicknamed "Kimye" by fans. Her birth on June 15, 2013 was a huge media event, marking the next generation of the Kardashian family‘s reality TV empire.
Her Early Life as Kimye‘s Firstborn
North was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. Her unique direction-themed name follows the Kardashian tradition started by her aunt Kim. She has one younger brother Saint West, born in 2015.
Kim and Kanye originally wanted to name their daughter Kaidence Donda West but changed it to North just before the birth. North was almost delivered by Kanye himself in the bedroom but they rushed to the hospital just in time.
As the first grandchild of the Kardashian family, North became an instant star. Her baby photos were revealed on Kris Jenner‘s talk show and Keeping Up with the Kardashians. North charmed fans as a cute, chubby-cheeked baby dressed in stylish outfits and accessories.
A Budding Fashion Icon
North has clearly inherited her parent‘s sense of style and penchant for high fashion. By age 5, she sat front row next to Vogue‘s Anna Wintour at Paris Fashion Week, donning stylish dresses and fur coats.
Her outfit choices are frequently discussed and even replicated. The toddler sparked trends like fuzzy slippers and neutral baggy tracksuits that were dubbed the "Nori Effect."
She has modeled for brands like Fendi and her clothes have been gifted by designers like Alexander Wang. In 2022, North made headlines for launching her own kids fashion line The Kids Supply.
Kim describes her as "a fashion icon, her daughter, “knows what she likes and what she wants and goes for it.” The oldest West child clearly has a bright future in the fashion world.
A Strong-Willed Personality
North is known for her big personality that stands out even among the Kardashian clan. She‘s silly, funny, sassy and a little extra at times. On her joint TikTok account with Kim, fans see her goofy antics, ad-libbing skills and dance moves.
In interviews, Kim describes North as "sassy" and "outspoken" but says "I feel like that is her personality and how she‘s supposed to be." Family friends call North the "leader of the pack" among her cousins.
She shows artistic talents like drawing and has received lessons in painting, singing, and piano. North also enjoys hairstyling and makeup, even giving her mom makeovers. Her personality shines whether she‘s hamming it up for videos or mastering new hobbies.
Rising Up as a Young Star
At 10 years old, North already has an impressive resume. She made Forbes‘ list of top kid influencers with an estimated $7 million earning potential per sponsored post.
North has over 4 million Instagram followers, has appeared in fashion campaigns, and racked up magazine covers like WWD Beauty Inc. Launching her own fashion line was just the latest of many accomplishments.
Her net worth is estimated at $10 million thanks to partnerships, collabs, and TV appearances. As Kim says, "She is so creative and so amazing and comes up with the most amazing things that I would have never thought she‘d be interested in."
What Does the Future Hold?
With her fashion sense, influencer status, and business savvy, North seems destined to follow the entrepreneurial footsteps of her famous parents. Fans eager to see how her style will evolve in her tween and teen years.
There‘s also speculation Kim may hand down KKW Beauty to her oldest daughter one day. As North gains more independence, her future paths could include modeling, design, acting, music and more. But for now, she remains grounded in her interests and devoted family.
At just 10 years old, North West has achieved so much and continues to inspire fans with her creativity and charm. There‘s no doubt she has a bright future ahead as she blossoms into her own star.
