Kanye West is back on daddy duty after a whirlwind start to 2022.
As Radar has reported, the 44-year-old rapper-turned-designer recently struck up a very public romance with 31-year-old actress Julia Fox.
Since the beginning of the year, they've gone on two not-so-discrete dates, done a racy photo shoot for a magazine together and have even appeared on each other's Instagram accounts.
But Ye took a break from life in the spotlight to share some quality time with his four children – daughter North, 8, son Saint, 6, daughter Chicago, 3, and son Psalm, 2 – who he shares with estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
The five casually dressed Wests were photographed at Downtown Los Angeles' swanky Soho Warehouse hotel on Saturday, where they played classic board games Connect Four and Guess Who.
After the family bonding sesh, the Grammy winner reportedly spent the rest of the evening working with his team in a design studio.
West has been begging Kardashian (who filed for divorce in February of 2021 after six years of marriage) to take him back for quite a few months, but after it became clear that her relationship with Pete Davidson was only getting more serious, he changed his approach.
As one Twitter user put it, "The Julia Fox/Kanye West article is the most hilariously pathetic attempt to make Kim Kardashian jealous I can't even believe it's real."
In said article, which was published last Thursday by Interview Magazine, Julia gushed about her budding situationship with Kanye, who she said wined, dined, dressed and photographed her in an effort to sweep her off her feet.
"His energy is so fun to be around. He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night," she said of their first date, which took place in Miami on New Year's Eve. "We decided to keep the energy going and fly back to New York City to see Slave Play."
On their second date in the Big Apple, Fox said West surprised her with a hotel suite filled with racks and racks of designer clothing.
"It was every girl's dream come true," she told the outlet. "It felt like a real Cinderella moment. I don't know how he did it, or how he got all of it there in time. But I was so surprised."
Though Julia was the only one quoted in the story, Kanye wanted to make sure his fans knew he was on board.
The following day, he took to his Instagram Story to share a several-part video of his new leading lady walking along a gravel path at nighttime. It's unclear where they were or when the video was taken, but the post was obviously telling.
In spite of her ex's seemingly petty PDA, sources tell us Kim is "not paying attention" to it and that she genuinely "hopes Kanye finds love."
Our insider cautioned, however, that "everyone just hopes Julia doesn't get her heart broken in the process."
