Khloe Kardashian shared a third photo of her niece North West on Instagram this week.
The baby girl was born to Khloe's sister Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Kanye West in June, but the new parents have kept their daughter well hidden from the media since her arrival.
On Tuesday, North's doting Aunt Khloe shared a black-and-white photo featuring the child's small hand in her own. The caption read "NW (heart)"
In the photo, only a portion of baby North is visible, but the child is wearing a striped onesie while being cradled by her aunt.
Additionally, the photo featured Kardashian's dark manicure, diamond watch, and her "LO" tattoo, which symbolizes her husband, Lamar Odom.
Recent reports indicate that Kardashian and Odom are on bad terms and may even be headed toward divorce over Odom's alleged drug addition.
Furthermore, Odom is named in several other scandals including an alleged affair with at least three different women and legal woes.
In August, the NBA star was arrested for a DUI after driving too slowly on a Los Angeles freeway and refusing a chemical test.
Despite living separately from his wife of four years, Odom and Kardashian have both continued to wear their wedding rings, but are believed to lead separate lives.
It is likely that Khloe Kardashian finds solace in her family, especially the company of her young niece throughout the marital ordeal.
The only other photos of North West include the first photo taken in August of the then-two-month-old child reaching out to the camera from the arms of an adult.
The second photo saw the baby girl swaddled in a white blanket and laying on top of a lush fur blanket.
"I missed waking up with my little angel," Kim Kardashian posted in the caption of the photo.
