Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may have made us antsy as we patiently anticipated a glimpse of their second child, Saint West, we can definitely say it was well worth the wait.

On Monday Kardashian released the first official photo of the little guy on her app and website—and he is incredibly precious. The newborn already has a full head of hair and the cutest cheeks that resemble his musically talented father's.

The new mom posted the snap on what would have been her dad Robert Kardashian's 72nd birthday. "I know there's nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren. So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all," she wrote.

Kim also shared a message dedicated to her late father on her site. "Happy Birthday dad! I can't believe you would have been 72 today," she wrote. "So much has gone on in our lives since you've been gone, and I know you have been my guardian angel seeing everything unfold! I love you and miss you so much!

The newest addition to their family made his way into the world early in December, after his mom overcame several struggles throughout her pregnancy. Not only did Mrs. West experience fertility issues, but she also worked closely with the best doctors to avoid a C-section after discovering her little boy was breech. But throughout all of the hardships, the parents remained positive, calling their son "a blessing."
