Kim Kardashian and Kanye West recently enjoyed a lunch outing in Santa Barbara with their 4-month-old daughter North and onlookers caught a rare glimpse of the adorable baby.


On Thursday the "Blood On The Leaves" rapper, 36, was photographed in daddy mode, pushing his daughter's stroller during the rare family outing. West's fiance, 33, carried the sleepy newborn during their quiet stroll and throughout lunch.

"Kim really loves being a mom and she can't get enough of baby North," a source previously told

The couple, who got engaged in October, appeared to be happy and relaxed while enjoying quality time together. Up until Thursday, West had been cautious about unveiling his daughter outdoors, but he now appears to be letting his guard down despite his dislike for the paparazzi.

"Kanye is tired of having [North] inside all the time. The only place she can get some fresh air without everybody looking at her is in her grandmother's backyard," a source told "He wants to be out with her, taking her on a stroller ride."

The Grammy award-winning rapper previously revealed that he plans to raise his daughter, whose nickname is Nori, with strong "Christian values" and he opened up about how fatherhood has changed him for the better.

"To me it's such a blessing," West previously told Kardashian's mother Kris Jenner about baby North. "I feel like it's going to give me the stability that I need to really create and really do God's work in the way I should."

On October 21, which is Kardashian's birthday, the reality TV star was left shaking after West unexpectedly proposed. The rapper rented out AT&T Park in San Francisco for his over-the-top proposal.

"Complete surprise. I truly had no idea," Kardashian told Us Weekly magazine. "I was shaking the whole time. It was like an out-of-body experience."

West recently told Power 106's Big Boy that he intends to wed Kardashian in the summer of 2014, during which "fighter jets" will appear.

The event will mark Kardashian's third marriage.
