Kanye West is one doting daddy.

Kim Kardashian posted a precious photo of Kanye and their youngest child, Chicago West, on Instagram and captioned it with a smiley face emoji. In the picture, the Yeezy owner kisses his daughter's head as she looks off into the distance. 

Chicago is about to turn 8-months-old in a few days. She was born on Jan. 15, 2018 via surrogate, and has since gained her rightful spot as a star in her mother's Instagram posts. In October, Chicago made her modeling debut alongside Kim in an add for KKW Beauty. In the picture, the KKW Beauty chief wore bright pink eyeshadow and similar-colored pants. She was topless and held Chicago on her chest, who also closed her eyes. "My heavenly baby!" she wrote.

The youngest West child loves posing alongside her cousins and siblings, too. On Aug. 7, Kim shared a picture of Chicago and her brother Saint West sitting next to each other. She deemed them to be "inseparable."

Chicago also bears a striking resemblance to her cousins, Stormi Webster and True Thompson. That became clear enough in another photo of the three of them sitting next to each other during a play date. Kim called them "The Triplets." She was also present at Kourtney Kardashian's epic "Cousin Cupcake Party" on Oct. 12.

Take a look at some of baby Chicago's cutest pictures below!

Kim revealed in April that Kanye had a different top choice of a name for their youngest kid. Chicago is his hometown, after all, but he had something else of significance in his mind. Kim told Ellen DeGeneres, "He really wanted his mother's name. I love that name, too. I just wasn't sure if it's so much to live up to." His mother's name was Donda West.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star elaborated a bit more on the name. She revealed that the Windy City "is a place that made him, a place that he remembers his family from."

No matter what, it's clear Kanye has a close and loving bond with his three children.
