Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are having a hard time staying in hiding with baby North.

The camera-ready pair had been the focus of many papz during their courtship and Kardashian’s pregnancy, but they haven’t been seen all that often since she gave birth to their daughter on June 15.

However, this weekend the two stepped out for a sombre occasion: the funeral of West’s grandfather Portwood Williams Sr in Oklahoma, E! News reported. It may not have been new family’s ideal public outing, but it definitely got them out of hiding.

Williams, whom Kardashian reportedly met in February, died on August 10 at age 98, according to the New York Daily News.

“She is beautiful – and she’s just as sweet as she is beautiful – and that’s what I liked about her!” Williams Sr. told the NYDN at the time. “She was just down to earth, she’s rich, and those kinds of people, they’ve got everything.”

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 32, has remained somewhat sequestered at her mother’s Hidden Hills mansion since Nori’s birth, while her place with West is being renovated (and perhaps to make a slim-down splash when she debuts her post-baby body). At the Saturday funeral, Kardashian dressed in black and was seen carrying their concealed 2-month-old daughter.

She also wrote a blog post about missing her half-sister Kylie Jenner’s Sweet 16 party because of their Oklahoma trip, but the couple reportedly sent a recorded video message from Kardashian as well as rappers Drake and Big Sean to Jenner’s Alice in Wonderland-themed blowout party instead.

“That’s why they weren’t at Kylie’s birthday,” a source told People about Kardashian and West’s absence. “They brought North, too. Her first trip.”

On Sunday, Kardashian posted a video of a “family dinner” where a friend belted out a song while West, Drake and several of Jenner’s friends watched.

Kimye and baby were also spotted out last week when they were headed to a doctor’s appointment, according to TMZ.

Kardashian wasn’t exactly her typical glam self, wearing a chambray shirt and black pants with boots and a flannel (yes, flannel) shirt tied around her waist. More reason for us to believe she’s hiding her post-baby figure. Nori was completely covered – a blanket hid her in a baby carrier that was toted by a nanny.

West was also out and about last week, taking in a Dodgers game with friends and Kardashian’s younger brother Robert. Unfortunately for the new dad, his group was booed at the baseball game.

Coming up for the new dad in the future: an interview on mother-in-law Kris Jenner’s talk show Kris, to air this Friday.

West agreed to sit down with Kris Jenner to cap off the trial run of her talk show.

The hour-long interview, which was taped on Monday, according to Entertainment Weekly, will cover West’s high-profile relationship with Jenner’s daughter Kardashian and North.

Kardashian has made a few teaser appearances since having North. She made a “surprise” video appearance on her mum’s show and made a flurry of post-baby debut headlines when she posted a three-second video of herself sticking out her tongue at fans.

Neener, neener, neener.

On her reality series, whose current season is chronicling her pregnancy days, the self-proclaimed stylist admits she’s afraid she’s losing her appeal while she’s with child. She “Tumblr-stalks” her hip younger sister Kylie, whom she hopes will deem her “cool” too by posting pics of Kardashian on her blog.

“I just want to be that cool again,” Kardashian said in the episode aired most recently in the US.
