Kim Kardashian decided to take a quick break from the cozy bubble she and baby North West have been living in for the past few months to post a photo to Facebook. Specifically, a photo where she's cuddling a swaddled up newborn while sister Kourtney lovingly looks on. Kim captioned the pic, "Love these precious moments."
Now, if you didn't know better, you'd think that was a photo of Kim and her baby, being that A) she just had one, and B) the world, sadly, is waiting with bated breath to see Kim and/or baby North. But no. It's a photo from a few years ago. And the baby Kim's holding? It's Mason.
So, I guess those of us who thought Kim really was hiding from the media solely to be with her baby instead of as an epic publicity stunt, egg on our face.
We learned last week that Kim plans on making her debut some time in the very near future. So, I guess she's building the tension now with trickery like this. Why else would she post something like this to Facebook? Of course we're all going to get in a tizzy when we see Kim cradling a mystery baby.

In my heart of hearts, I do think motherhood has changed Kim. How could it not? But I definitely think this "Kim in hiding" business is more for money and publicity reasons than for "wanting to spend time with my baby" reasons. I wanted to believe that wasn't the case, but with a stunt like this, how could it not be? Just show us the baby, Kim; collect your ginormous paycheck; and let's get on with it already.
Do you think Kim is in hiding for publicity reasons?
