Kim Kardashian wants North West to appear on 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'.

The 33-year-old beauty has been cautious about her daughter being in the public eye - having sharing only a handful of photos since she and fiance Kanye West welcomed her in June last year - but it's said she wants the seven-month-old tot join the series.

A source told ''[Ryan Seacrest, who executive produces the show] personally reached out to Kim and asked her to consider allowing North on the show, even just a limited amount.

''Kim really wants to put North on the show. Viewers and fans of the show want to see Kim interact with her daughter, and how she is as a mother.''

However, rapper Kanye isn't keen on the idea and reportedly ''shuts down'' the topic of conversation whenever it's brought up and refuses to compromise.

The source added: ''Kim has always been an open book with her fans, but once Kanye came on the scene, that all changed. Kanye shuts Kim down whenever she brings it up.

''[He] doesn't want his daughter ever to appear on 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'.

''He thinks reality television is tacky, and doesn't want North on display. He will be very happy when Kim is done with the show.''
