Kim Kardashian has admitted photoshopping her daughter North into this year's West family Christmas card.

While appearing on the Ellen Show on Tuesday, the global entrepreneur, 39, fessed up to rumours that North, six, was added into the photo at a later date after refusing to take the picture with her family earlier.

Kim revealed the family's annual festive card on her Instagram last week, when she posted the holiday snap which this year did not include the extended Kardashian-Jenner clan.

Kim posted a picture of the family - husband Kanye , North, Saint, four, Chicago, 23 months and Psalm, seven months - sitting on monochrome steps in their Calabasas home, wearing similar colour tones and displaying soft smiles.

She told Ellen: "It was a time thing and it was hard to wrangle everyone together so I said I'll just do my own family.

"It was so much anxiety with the four kids, North was having a day and I said fine we'll do it without you but then she said she just wanted to shoot with me.

"So I said fine we'll just Photoshop her in. So that's not actually her in the picture. The anxiety I went through to get that picture. There's always one."

The mum-of-four also dished out on her younger sister Kylie 's relationship with ex-flame Travis Scott .

Over the weekend, Kylie was pictured wearing a diamond ring at an outing, sparking major engagement rumours that have not been confirmed.

Kim told Ellen: "I don't know. I honestly don't know but i think they are close friends and co-parenting amazingly. That ring is... they're definitely not engaged.

"I don't know the status of their relationship but I don't think they're back together."

Kim also shared her thoughts on older sister Kourtney's decision to leave the family's reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

She said: "So Khloe and I have been really frustrated that we've been working longer and we have kids and a lot of stuff going on, so it’s been exhausting for us when she hasn't taken that into consideration without making a decision of what she wants to do: stay on the show or not.

"But to be in this limbo and have us do this for so long is frustrating. So we've come to the conclusion that she will film a little bit.

"It’s always up in the air but we’re in a good place about respecting each other’s space and if someone doesn't want to be on the show, we obviously want them to have that mental break."
