When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's first child, daughter North West was due, the universe was already seething with jealousy. First off, she had stylish parents, and secondly, she got a ton of free, custom-made clothes from every single damn designer you could imagine. That baby was honorary royalty by default, and she's upholding the responsibilities her throne demands very well.
The next in line to North's throne is a baby boy due next month, and he is already cementing his status as the next kid adults need to envy to no end. Starting off, family friends — extremely wealthy ones at that — bought Mr. West Jr. a mini gold and diamond chain to match the one his father famously wore on his interview with Zane Lowe. This newborn is going to stunt on all us losers as soon as he leaves the womb.
Now we are waiting intently for North and her brother's attempts at out-stunting each other, and the drama it will ultimately lead to in the tabloids. God bless the Kardashian Wests.
