Kim Kardashian is facing fans' fury for posting a fake baby photo on her Facebook page, with critics claiming she has misled the public.

The photograph, which Kardashian posted with the caption 'Love these precious moments,' shows her holding a baby along with her sister Kourtney.

However the baby in the picture is reportedly Kourtney's son Mason Disick.

One Facebook responded to the picture by asking: "Enough Kim !! We already know this is not ur baby north west !! C'mom what are u waiting for? Ur not even half of Kate Middleton and she already let the world know about her baby and u? U want millions of dollars just to see ur baby ?

"C'mom ... Ur baby worth that money? Cuz i dont think so !!! Babys does not have a price so !! Just to let u know ! Stop being so dramatic."

However a source purportedly close to Kim Kardashian told that "she is dying for people to see how cute North is. She wants her fans to see how adorable she is."

In a recent blog posted on Celebuzz, she stated that she was having the most exciting experiences of her life.

"These past couple of weeks have been filled with the most exciting experiences of my life. I'm enjoying this time to fully embrace motherhood and spend time at home with my family," Kardashian said.

"I've been reading all of your messages and want to thank you all for your sweet thoughts and best wishes. It truly means everything to me. I am so blessed to have the support of my family and fans in this beautiful moment."

North West, already a celebrity, was introduced to her family earlier this month, during an Independence Day party on 4 July at the clan's Malibu beach house.

"Kim has taken North on a few play dates, but she can't do it with lots of people since she's still so small," a source told Us magazine. "They are both so in love with their little girl. He [father Kanye West] doesn't leave North for more than an hour," the source added.

She had recently appeared in public for the first time since giving birth to her daughter, North West. The 32-year-old model/actress and star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was seen trying to travel undercover in her nanny's car, out in southern California.

"As for the baby, Kim and her helper kept a blanket over North's car seat so nobody could catch a glimpse," the source added, according to the Mail Online.
