The reality star explains why she's been away from the spotlight

Kim Kardashian has reached out to fans a month after giving birth to her and Kanye West‘s daughter North.

The 32-year-old’s been keeping a low profile since becoming a mum but explained on Twitter yesterday that she’s taking time out to bond with her little girl.

‘These past couple of weeks have been filled with the most exciting experiences of my life,’ Tweeted Kim.

‘I’m enjoying this time to fully embrace motherhood and spend time at home with my family.’

Kim and Kanye, 36, welcomed their baby five weeks early and chose her unusual name to represent the ‘highest power’.

Reality star Kim continued her cute Tweet by thanking her followers for their congratulatory comments on North‘s arrival.

‘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,’ wrote Kim.

‘I am so blessed to have the support of my family and fans in this beautiful moment. Xo.’
