Kim Kardashian shares rare photo of herself and Kanye with all three kids

When Kanye West married Kim Kardashian, many people didn't think the relationship would last. I mean, a narcissistic rapper and a reality television personality? I thought they'd break up within a month. But I also thought Kanye would never make it as a rapper, and should stick to producing. Yeezy keeps proving me wrong! Here we are, four years later, and Kanye and Kim are still together, taking adorable family photos with their three kids.

After Easter weekend, Kim shared the first photo of the Kardashian-Wests on Instagram. As every parent knows, taking the perfect family picture is a Sisyphean task. The more children you have, the harder it gets. As soon as one kid smiles, another one makes a goofy face, or starts bawling, or is suddenly fascinated by something in the opposite direction of the camera. But Kim tried her best, writing, "I don’t think you really understand how hard it is to take a good family pic. This was all we got before all three kids started crying. I think I cried too."

On Monday morning, Kim shared another family photo, taken inside of an airplane. The second time was the charm, as they captured something more rare than the pygmy three-toed sloth: A smile from Kanye West. The rapper told a reporter from High Snobriety that his serious pose was inspired by a book of paintings from the 1800's. "Their outfits were incredible, and they weren’t smiling," explained Kanye. "When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling because it just wouldn’t look as cool." However, in this snap he's caught grinning from ear to ear, holding his three-month old daughter, Chicago. Meanwhile, Kim hugs two-year-old Saint and four-year-old North, who can't resist making a funny face. The photo might not be 'cool,' but it's pretty cute.

Kanye has a lot to smile about, since he produced five albums that are dropping in five weeks. That right, five - it's Yeezy season! The Gold Digger rapper made his long-awaited return to Twitter to announce the release dates for the five projects he 'hand-produced:' On May 25, Pusha T's third album, King Push. On June 1, Kanye's eighth album, which will consist of only seven songs. On June 8, Kids See Ghost, a collaborative album between Kanye and Kid Cudi. On June 15, Nas' long-awaited twelfth album. (Kanye tweeted, "I feel like im 18 year old again when I make beats for Nas.") And on June 22, the second album from Good Music singer Teyana Taylor.

It looks like fatherhood has given Kanye some newfound inspiration. (Well, either that or he's spending all his time in the studio to avoid changing diapers.) While Khloé's dealing with a cheating Tristan Thompson, Kanye and Kim are the picture of stability. And by the way, Kim (I know you're reading this), don't stress about taking a perfect family photo. The perfect family photos are the imperfect ones, because they capture how families really are.
