Kim Kardashian Shares Rare Photo of Her Family & Fans Think They See an Angel in It

She's definitely selective about the types of photos she chooses to share on Instagram, especially when it comes to pictures of her family. And that's why we couldn't help but be a little excited over Kim Kardashian's new family photo with all three kids, which was presumably taken on Easter Sunday. At first glance, it's a pretty typical shot. Kim and Kanye aren't smiling. North West looks cute as a button. Baby Chicago is fast asleep. And Saint is refusing to look at the camera. 

  • But what is the white light people are seeing on Kanye's left, in the right side of the photo?

    We didn't notice it right away either, but commenters were quick to point it out -- and some of them are wondering if this is actually an angel, or the spirit of Kanye's late mother, Donda.

  • The bright spot does span the length of Kanye's body.

  • Which led some to wonder if it's the silhouette of a person, perhaps Kanye's mom.

    It could just be a trick of the lighting, or the camera angle, but it's hard to deny that whatever the white light is, it seems to be focused on Kanye.

  • Hmm ... a guardian angel, perhaps?

    If you're the type of person who believes in that sort of thing, whatever is happening in this picture does prove to be pretty interesting -- especially given that it was taken on Easter. 

  • However, according to Kim, the shot wasn't an easy one to obtain.

    She captioned the pic of her family of five with, "I don't think you really understand how hard it is to take a good family pic. This was all we got before all three kids started crying. I think I cried too."

  • Way to keep it real, Kim!

    Sometimes it's tough to see Kim as "just a regular mom," what with all the Kardashian glitz and glamour. It sure is refreshing when she shares a moment like this that we can all relate to. Being a mom of three isn't easy, no matter how many extra hands you have around Luckily, Kim has plenty of people in her corner to help her out -- including someone possibly watching over her family from above.
