Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their son into the world in December, but only introduced him via her website in February. The adorable shot shows the infant sleeping on his back, wearing a white ribbed onesie.

It might look peaceful, but apparently behind the scenes, the build-up to Saint's debut picture was a dramatic one.

"Kanye considered himself the creative director of the shoot and wanted to get the perfect shot of Saint," an insider told heat magazine. "He wanted him to wear designer clothes he'd had specifically commissioned, but Kim kept saying it was 'stupid' and 'inappropriate' and that she wanted something uncontroversial and simple, which showed the world that Saint is a gorgeous little baby."

The power couple reportedly hired different photographers for the shoot, including Nick Saglimbeni, but Kim wound up posting a shot she took herself in the end.

"In the end, it was Kim who took the picture and she loved it. Over 1,000 photos had been taken by that stage and she found Kanye hard to use her one," the source added.
