Reality star Kim Kardashian West is basking in the joys of motherhood. Kim and her husband Kanye West became parents to their baby North West about 17 months ago and they have constantly been gushing about her since she first came into their lives. This time around, the proud mom shared a split photograph of herself as a baby and of North while they were approximately the same age. She also showed off a split photo of herself then and now.

Kim Kardashian used her Instagram account to post a photo that someone made of her and her baby North. The two photos were split and put together to form one face. In Kim's photo, she was also very young and approximately North's age. Kim wore a little bow on her neck while North has also one on her hair. The resemblance between the two was uncanny and Kim shared her delight: "I'm not sure who made this but I love these side by side pics. This is me on the right as a baby and North on the left."

After posting a split photo of herself and her baby, Kim then went ahead and posted another side-by-side photo, but this time around, the split photograph was composed of an old photo of herself and a more recent one. On the left, the face of a seven-year-old Kim was placed right beside a recent photo of her. Despite plastic surgery rumours and other reports about alterations made to her face over the years, the seven-year-old Kim looked just like her older self, only with a lot less makeup, of course.

Kim and the other members of her family have never been shy about posting throwback photos of themselves even back when they had frizzy hair and wore baggy jeans. The seven-year-old Kim, however, was already a definite beauty. During the holiday season, Kim also posted a throwback photo of herself with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe. After their Christmas Eve party, she also shared a recent photo of the three of them along with a few more with other family members including her husband and daughter.
