Kanye West Appears in Kardashian Christmas Card Despite Kim Saying It Was Women & Kids Only

Kanye West made a surprise appearance in the Kardashian Christmas card this year

Kim Kardashian West is full of surprises!

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star released another snap Monday from her family’s annual Christmas card photo shoot, which included a surprise appearance from her husband, Kanye West.

Though the photo didn’t show the pair’s faces, in the eleventh photo posted on Kardashian West’s Instagram — captioned “DAY 11” — photographer Eli Linnetz captured West, 40, and the Kimoji creator horizontally from the chest down to their knees. Like Kardashian, West wore a white shirt and light-washed jeans, which he accessorized with a gold watch and rings.


Kardashian West, 37, took on the role of organizing the Kardashian Christmas card shoot this year and told James Corden during a November appearance on The Late Late Show that “it’s women and children this year” and explained the vision behind the theme: “This year’s Christmas card is shot really casually. We’re kind of doing [a] jeans-and-T-shirts vibe. Really cute. All the kids are so hard to put together.”

The KUWTK star, who shares daughter North, 4, and son Saint, 2, with West — with whom she is expecting her third child, a baby girl, via surrogate — has been revealing the family’s annual photo piece by piece — just like a holiday advent calendar — and kicked off the 25-day countdown on her website, app and social media.

This year’s long-awaited holiday card will be Saint’s first, as he was only a few weeks old when sister North and cousins Reign, Penelope Scotland, 5, and Mason Dash, 8 this month, starred in the 2015 photo wearing coordinating chic black outfits. (The family opted to not release a card in 2016.)

The Kardashian-Jenner family Christmas card has become highly anticipated over the years. The reality stars have done everything from posing in glamorous gowns on the stairs in 2010 to testing out a 3D version in 2011 and even a chaotic carnival in 2013.
