Tears, chaos and North’s middle finger salute! Kim Kardashian’s Christmas card shoot

Before Kim Kardashian could celebrate the holiday season with her family, she had to endure a grueling Christmas card photoshoot.

The 41-year-old billionaire gathered her four children — North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3 — for a photoshoot for the season finale of Hulu’s The Kardashians.

The shoot was messy at best, with Kim revealing that very few photos could be used … due to North’s tendency to flip his middle finger at the camera.

Kim confesses that “Christmas is our family’s biggest business” as she prepares for the shoot.

She adds that they try to make a Christmas card every year because their mom Kris has been making it to them all her life.

“Taking a family picture is the most stressful time of my life, no matter what,” Kim says as we do Kim with her kids.

“Given what happened with Khloe and Tristan, I’m just trying to give us all some happy, joyful moments,” Kim said in the confession.

“I just feel like we should just try to have happy memories,” she adds, as her eldest child North, 9, cries out for her while she brings her other three children – Saint, 6, Chicago, 4 , and Psalm, 3 – all wear matching outfits.

“You could never predict what our Christmas card was going to look like because it’s just so stressful,” Kim confesses while trying to get Psalm to take a picture.

She’s seen wearing a crying North, adding, “They’re always crying, nobody gets along,” as the kids run wild through the set.

Kim adds that most of the photos she saw “were unusable because North stuck out her middle finger, and on days like this I really just have to lock myself in the room for a good 30 minutes.”

She’s seen trying to get her kids to look at a lollipop to get a good shot but it doesn’t work, adding: “Yeah, it’s a lot. Just a lot to be a mother.’

A producer admitted to Kim that they were “almost done, let me just ask you the last one.”

In response, an exhausted Kim sits back and stretches out on the couch as they unveil some of the family photos.
