North West is an American child. She is one of the most photographed toddlers in the world. North is the daughter of Kanye West, a rapper, record producer, and fashion designer, and Kim Kardashian West, a television and social media personality, actress, socialite, and model.

Her aunts and uncles are Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner, all of whom are television personalities. Her cousin is Penelope Disick, who is Kourtney’s daughter.

A 23andMe DNA test whose results were displayed on the show Keeping Up with the Kardashians (2018) stated that North’s aunts Kourtney and Khloé’s genetic ancestry is:

*53%-58% European
——–*4.5% French
*41.6% Middle Eastern & North African

The test also evidently stated that the Kardashians have a fraction of Native American DNA, presumably under .4% in Khloé’s case, given her 58% European and 41.6% Middle Eastern results.

North’s paternal grandfather is Ray West (the son of James Frederick West, Sr. and Fannie Mae Hooks). Ray was a member of the Black Panthers, and is now a Christian counselor. James was the son of Virgil Henry West and Estella Selby. Fannie was the daughter of Early Hooks and Mary Rolfe.

North’s paternal grandmother was named Donda C. Williams (the daughter of Portwood Williams and Lucille E.). Donda was born in Oklahoma, and was a professor of English at Chicago State University.

North’s maternal grandfather was Robert Kardashian, a lawyer (the son of Arthur Kardashian and Helen Jean Arakelian). Robert was born in California, and was of Armenian descent. Arthur was the son of Tatos Saghatel “Thomas” Kardashian and Hamas “Hanna” Shakarian. Helen was the daughter of John Arakel Mgrditchian Arut Arakelian and Vartanoosh/Rose Miroyan/Mirayan.

North’s maternal grandmother is Kris Jenner, a socialite (born Kristen Mary Houghton, the daughter of Robert True Houghton and Mary Gorden/Jo Campbell). Kris was born in California, and has English, Scottish, Irish, German, Dutch ancestry. Robert was the son of True Otis Houghton and Mary Lee Pickens.
