Kim Kardashian has slowly but surely been putting her bodacious body back on display in the months after the birth of daughter North West.

But is she gearing up to return to the most storied display case of them all?!

"@KimKardashian is looking to make it back onto the cover of Playboy, very exciting," Hugh Hefner tweeted-then-deleted, but not before the retweeters got a hold of the sentiment.

Well, Hef is apparently all for it. And we doubt that Playboy readers would argue much, either.

Catch a new episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians this Sunday at 9 p.m., only on E!
