Beyoncé and Jay Z pay a visit to new mum Kim Kardashian and baby North West
01 AUGUST 2013
Ever since the arrival of Kim Kardashian's baby daughter six weeks ago, the world has been waiting for a glimpse of the newborn. Among those who have been lucky enough to see the little girl are fellow parents Beyoncé and Jay Z.
On Sunday, the music power couple took time out of their busy schedules to make a very important visit to Kris Jenner's home in Calabasas to spend time with Kim and North West.

Although dad Kanye West wasn't around – he is currently in Milan, Italy – his close friend Jay Z and his wife spent the morning with the new mum, who has not been seen since giving birth on 15 June.
It is reportedly not the first time that Beyonce and Jay Z have visited the little girl, but on this occasion they arrived without their own 18-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.
Last month it was revealed that the couple had spent nearly $8,000 (£5,000) on gifts for the newborn. Among the presents they gave to then two-week-old North were personalised Christian Dior booties and a three-piece sterling silver Elsa Padova baby set with her name engraved on it.
"Kanye is one of Jay Z's closest friends so he wanted to get the best gift. They had a girl themselves, so they know the right type of present," a source told the Mail.
The couple also reportedly sent Kim a Swarovski crystal-studded high chair as a baby shower gift, worth nearly $14,000.
Their generosity seems to dispel reports that Beyonce and Kim don't get on. The Bootylicious singer was also among the first to congratulate the new parents when they welcomed their firstborn.
"Congratulations Kim & Kanye," Beyonce wrote on her Tumblr just two days after North West's arrival, alongside a photo of Kim and Kanye. "Enjoy this beautiful moment together."
