Kim Kardashian’s buggy has a ‘paparazzi shield’

This Hollywood favourite offers full coverage to shield celebrity babies from photographers


Kim Kardashian has been spotted out and about for the first time with baby Saint West. And we can reveal the travel system she’s chosen actually has an in-built ‘paparazzi shield’.


Which is kind of ironic, because she was snapped with the travel system by the paparazzi. BUT did they get a shot of little Saint? No, they did not. So the shield works!

Kim was spotted boarding a private jet carrying 2-month-old Saint in the Orbit Baby Infant Car Seat. The car seat comes with what Orbit Baby describe as a ‘Full Coverage Paparazzi Shield’.

Kim chose an Orbit Baby for her first child, North, too – pictured above in May 2014 with baby North in her Orbit Baby buggy – so we’re thinking she must have liked the brand. 

What does the ‘paparazzi shield’ do? 

Orbit Baby say the shield offers “nearly 100% UVA and UVB blockage and lightweight, breathable protection” from “harsh sun, wind, drizzle and germs, especially during naps”.


They add “there’s no need to throw a blanket over your baby” to protect them from the elements. (Not to mention those pesky paparazzi that are right in our face every time we nip to Tesco.)

So it’s basically a sunshade with a fancy name. It’s worth bearing in mind that Orbit Baby is a very Hollywood brand with a big celebrity following – so that’s probably why they’ve gone for the outlandish ‘paparazzi shield’ name for something that actually sounds pretty useful (and commonplace).

What do you think of Kim’s travel system?
