HIDDEN HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Thursday was an important day for fans of 'The Kardashians,' as the show aired its season finale. And as with any season finale, 'The Kardashians' had some dramatic moments scattered throughout the episode. But the moment that drew the most attention was Kim Kardashian's revelation to her daughter North West about her conception. The SKIMS founder revealed that the 9-year-old was born because of a dress that Kim's then-boyfriend Kanye West gave her.

During the Season 2 finale of 'The Kardashians,' Kim recounted the day she and Kanye, who now calls himself "Ye," welcomed their first child, citing a custom-made dress designed by luxury fashion house Balmain and its creative director Olivier Rousteing. The episode showed Kim and North's day in Paris, where they attended Paris Fashion Week and were styled by Rousteing for their appearance at the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Fall/Winter fashion show. At that moment backstage, Kim decided to (over) share the anecdote with her daughter, "Northie, I've known Olivier since before you were a baby, and he gave Daddy this blue dress that Daddy wanted for me."

Kim continued, “It was my birthday, the year before you were born, and I wore the dress, and I got pregnant and you got in my belly the night I wore that dress,” as the two ate french fries and sipped cola. Adding, “So, Olivier might have a little something to do with the reason you’re on this planet.” In classic North West style, North stared at her mother with a blank expression following the revelation.

The "blue dress" was the cobalt blue, low-cut dress Kim had appeared in on the red carpet of the Gabrielle's Angel Foundation Angel Ball in New York City in 2012. She had attended the event with her ex-husband Ye, whom she was dating at the time. Apparently, Ye had asked Rousteing for Kim's custom Balmain dress as a birthday gift. The star had accessorized the low-cut, long-sleeved look with a fishtail braid and styled it with blue earrings, a large ring, and black pointed pumps.

Discussing the dress in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Rousting had revealed that it was his very first creation for the reality star. He said, “The first dress that I made for her was a long, electric blue dress that Kanye requested.” He also stated that Ye had told him about what happened because of his dress, adding, “And you know what the most amazing thing was about this dress,” Olivier paused, hesitating, but revealing, “I don’t know if I can say it, but I’m going to say it. I’m sorry, Kim, I want to say it. It was the night North was conceived.”
