The couple are apparently growing concerned about the amount of paparazzi attention their daughter receives and want to limit this when she is out with just her nanny.
To combat this they are reported to have ‘held auditions’ at a specialist LA agency to find a 13 month old who is the spit of their daughter.
A source told Britain’s Grazia magazine: “Kim and Kanye hired the lookalike to shield North from the paparazzi.
Presumably the other kid works better with constant flash bulbs?
“There were auditions held in LA at a specialist agency and in the end they found a child who is the spitting image of their daughter.
“They also hired a body-double nanny, who they hope will really throw paps off the scent.”
And it would seem that this isn’t as drastic as it seems in celebland and North isn’t the first celeb baby to invest in the services of a professional doppelganger.
Suri Cruise reportedly had one after her Dad, Tom Cruise, decided it would be safer after meeting with ‘child abduction analysts’.
A source said at the time: “They have talked with them specifically in relation to Suri and her well being.
“These guys deal with kidnap threats of families and children for super rich people and corporations.
“They work in high risk territories and targets around the world. They advise on how to best prevent subjects being placed in compromising situations, while offering protection solutions, too.”
