Kim Kardashian has finally confessed to replacing her niece Stormi with True in a Photoshopped picture that had recently landed her sister in hot water.

The 41-year-old reality star took to social media this week to explain the truth behind the pictures after mounting speculation that they had Photoshopped the children.

Kardashian - who is mum to North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four and Psalm, two - claimed she had actually edited out her niece so the aesthetic of her Instagram page remained intact.

She also added her sister Kylie Jenner didn’t want her daughter to appear in the images which was another reason for the cover up.

Kardashian made her confession on her social media stories on Wednesday where she shared the original pictures alongside her explanation.

“Ok guys I do have a photoshop confession while we are safe here in the circle of the truth,” Kardashian wrote.

“Ok so you know I am all about my aesthetic! And my IG grid is pink and blue lately. Isn’t it so cute and well planned out?”

Kardashian continued: “I asked @kyliejenner if I could post them and she said she wasn’t really feeling posting at the moment and so I respect that. But it wasn’t going to mess up my IG feed. Chi was wearing pink and it matched perfectly.

“It wasn’t the aesthetic I was going for and I can own up to that.”

She added: “You know how much a good aesthetic means to my soul and I will be damned if Kylie will ruin that for me and mess up my IG grid. So thank you True for taking one for the team! I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal if her own mom questioned if I snuck her to a Disneyland for the first time.”

It was, in fact, her sister Khloe who was accused of the superimposing scandal just earlier this month.

The Good American founder was left red-faced when she revealed her daughter was enjoying her first time at Disneyland.

However, eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that the original Photoshopped images were shared last year which seemed to prove that some Photoshopping had taken place.

Khloe Kardashian was forced to come clean at the time. She said: “Welllppp I f***ed this one up. Anyways….. let’s focus on something else. Our show airs in a few days.”
