“North [West], I know Olivier [Rousteing, fashion designer] before you were a child,” Kim Kardashian she told her 9-year-old son in the second season finale The Kardashians, which hit Hulu on Nov. 24. The episode featured Kim, 42, and North walking outside Parish Fashion Week. The mother-daughter team attended the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture/Winter fashion show and was styled by Olivier Rousteing for a look. This is when Kim shared a little about the events of North’s birth.
“[Olivier] she gave daddy this blue dress [Kanye “Ye” West] he wanted me,” Kim told her daughter. “It was my birthday – the year before you were born – and I wore a dress, and I got pregnant, and you got into my belly the night I wore the dress. So, Olivier might have a little bit to do with why you’re here on earth.”
Kim wore the dress in question to the Angels Ball in October 2012, at Inside. The event fell about eight months before North’s birthday, June 15, 2013. Olivier talked about his first meeting with Kim in 2016 interview of his program. “My first meeting with Kim in three words, I would say amazing, I would say electric, and I would say, love,” he said, per Refinery29.
“This is a memory that I will never forget,” he added. “She wanted something special and very special for her special day. So I made a Marie Antoinette dress and it was so beautiful. …But you know what? I think the first thing I made for her wasn’t a bachelorette, it was a long electric dress that Kanye asked for. And you know what? what’s so amazing about this dress is that – I don’t know if I can say it, but I’m saying it, I’m sorry Kim I want to say it – it’s the night that North was pregnant.”
On the episode of The Kardashians, Kim revealed that she reached out to Ye, 45, even though she was “at a distance from me.” She filed for divorce in Feb. 2021, and the family is still in the process of splitting up. However, Kim reached out because Ye “won a bunch of Grammys, and I still reached out and said, ‘I know you’ve won a bunch of Grammys. I must add them to the pantry.’ And he was like, ‘okay.’ Because kids want them, you know? And I want to put it all together. “
Kim and Ye’s relationship took another hit, soon after Rolling Stone published a report that they showed intimate and intimate photos and videos of Kim to Yeezy employees.
