North West, the media sensation darling of mom Kim Kardashian and dad Kanye West, was spotted taking a tumble on Saturday while out on a shopping trip with her celebrity mother. Mother, daughter, and entourage were apparently headed for Toys R Us while in Woodland Hills, California. The little girl was holding the hand of a family friend and fell to the ground on her hands and knees while mother walked blithely on ahead.
Fortunately, the 2-year-old did not appear to suffer any injuries from the fall and, in fact, remained in good spirits afterwards. The cause for her trip and splatter was apparently a loose shoelace, as reported by the New York Daily News. North West was seen wearing a pair of Yeezy Boost 350’s, shoes that are part of her famous father’s shoe line. She laughed as her mom turned around to check on her.
Later on in the day, she appeared to remain in good spirits with no ill effects as she was seen running around the Toys R Us store with a pink Easter basket and matching toy watering pot.

North West was born to the powerful celebrity duo on June 15, 2013 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Kanye West is a rapper and Kim Kardashian is a reality star. She was Kardashian’s first child with West, and they married a few months after her birth.
Glamour Magazine writes that she was born a month prematurely and weighed, at that time, 4 pounds and 15 ounces. Her unique birth name was the subject of much media speculation and was leaked to the public before a formal announcement was made by TMZ after they were able to obtain a copy of her birth certificate.
Baby North West can frequently be found sporting designer outfits specially chosen by her mother and is a favorite photographic pursuit of the paparazzi. Even at this young age, she has been found sitting front row at Fashion Week.
She is big sister to recently born baby brother Saint West. She was first presented to the world on grandmother Kris Jenner’s talk show, Kris, when her father flashed her newborn photo to the cameras.
Also sharing her famous family tree are aunts Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner. Her uncle is Rob Kardashian. Her grandmother is Kris Jenner and grandfather (now deceased) is Robert Kardashian. Her step-grandfather is Bruce Jenner (now known as Caitlyn Marie Jenner), former Olympic gold medal winner.
The precocious cutie has already begun defining her own media persona. Over the last few months, media have witnessed her protesting the constant glare of flash bulbs pointed her way. In February, as they were waiting to catch a shot of her exiting her ballet class she was heard shouting to her mother, “No pictures!” When the photographers persisted in attempting to get a shot, she reiterated, “I said no pictures.”
Rumors reported by Radar Online indicate that North West’s dad shares her sentiments. Apparently, his displeasure with the many photos that Kim takes of her have been a source of contention between him and his wife, and the constant arguments about the subject have fueled discussions about possible divorce. He doesn’t want cameras and such in close proximity to the baby as he feels that they are bad for her. Kanye has been very vocal about the fact that he doesn’t want her on camera all of the time, both out of a fear for her physical safety as well as emotional well-being.
An unnamed source shared insider information about the couple’s duel over North West’s photos and selfies.
“Kanye does NOT like it when Kim encourages North with selfies. He hit the roof when she boasted about it online. It totally undermines him.”
