Today in adorable baby news, it’s 7-month-old Saint West, one of the only people on Earth who could steal the paparazzi spotlight from mom Kim Kardashian. And in true celebrity style, he made his public debut yesterday in an effortlessly cool camouflage-print two-piece ensemble.
Saint’s unveiling has been a work in progress. Unlike the ubiquitous North, his fashion-forward 3-year-old big sis, the second child of Kardashian and Kanye West has been a bit camera shy. His glamorous mom has released only a handful of photos of her sweet son on social media, leaving fans curious as to why such a fame-centric family would keep its littlest star under wraps — and chalking it up to privacy (yes, some things are sacred, even for the Kardashians!).
But the whole family — including the Disick clan but minus aunts Kendall and Kylie and husband Kanye — hit the road yesterday to attend the San Diego store opening and birthday of baby Saint’s great-grandmother, Mary Jo Campbell. Though she lives her life out of the spotlight in La Jolla, matriarch Campbell — Kris Jenner’s mom and a style icon in her own right — has made sporadic appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Yesterday’s outing was being filmed for the 12th season of the series.
Kim stepped out in a black, skintight outfit and strappy heels — clearly proud to show off the fact that she’s back to her goal weight of 120 pounds. Kourtney was also camera-ready in crisp, white, wide-leg pants and statement-making platform shoes, while Khloé went the high-fashion route in a leopard-print tank, ripped jeans, stilettos, and a black trench coat. Great grandma Campbell hosted the opening in a tweed romper and lemon-yellow blazer.
The little kids were casual-cool in T-shirts, shorts, sundresses, and sneakers. North, ever the girly girl, topped her denim cut-offs look with a pretty pearl necklace.
As photogenic as his lookalike sibling, handsome little Saint kept a cool head as cameras swirled and he was passed from his mom to his doting grandmother and aunts. Clearly a content baby, he even smiled for the cameras a few times.
Just a few days ago, Kardashian revealed that her baby boy said his first words — but she wasn’t too crazy about what came out. According to Yahoo Celebrity, Kardashian told E! News, “He said ‘dada’ today, three times and I was like ‘what’?,” she said. “Kanye was so excited. He was like ‘I told him to say that.’ I was like, ‘I just really wanted him to say momma first.’” (Not to burst your bubble, Kanye, but according to Yahoo News, the sound “da” might simply be the easiest for a baby to make — and might not mean he’s calling for his papa at all!)
In his first-ever public photo, shared to his mom’s website and Instagram, a cherubic-looking Saint is wearing a simple, cream-colored thermal top and lounging on a matching duvet. Kardashian wrote on her site, “Today is my dad’s birthday. I know there’s nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren. So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all.”

But Saint has some pretty chic shoes to fill if he wants to compete with sister North for the sartorial spotlight — particularly the burgundy Doc Marten’s boots she wore with her faux-leopard fur jacket or her red high-top Yeezys — her dad’s signature kicks. Mom and Dad have matching sneakers, and we think there’s room in this photo for just one more pair:
