Kendall Jenner is thrilled by the latest addition to the Kardashian family.

Kendall's older sister Kim Kardashian gave birth to North West, her first child with boyfriend Kanye West, last week and the 17-year-old model is happy to have a new niece to play with.

She told Us Weekly: ''I love kids, so it's so much fun for me. I bought a little pig for the newborn. They're all doing great, everyone's good.''

While Kim was preoccupied with her pregnancy this year, Kendall revealed her sister has been helping her in her career as a model.

She said: ''Kim always says [to] tilt your jaw down and suck in your teeth to give you a flattering angle.

''My family know what I want to do and they've been supporting me in every way.''

Kendall isn't the only excited aunt in the Kardashian/Jenner household, Kendall and Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian, 28, couldn't resist taking to Twitter to gush about North following her birth.

She wrote: ''I can not even begin 2 describe the miracle that is now apart of our family. Mommy/baby are healthy & resting. We appreciate all of the love

''More info will come when the time is right! Thank you all for understanding! We love you all dearly! Overwhelmed with love right now (sic).''
