Kim Kardashian was obviously down in the dumps about her baby daddy Kanye West being 5,600 miles away in Paris while she endured a painful pregnancy with their first child.
So it's unsurprising that a mega-watt couldn't stop itself from overtaking the K-Dash pout when Kanye arrived back to his New York apartment on Monday... handily at the same time that work had taken her to the east coast.
The two were reunited after Kim attended a work meeting at the E! headquarters with her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney, for which she looked utterly miserable.
And it seemed to be catching as Kanye looked a bit grumpy at times when she caught up with him, though he could barely contain his delight when best buddy Jay-Z dropped by.

Kim was wearing the shoes designed by her boyfriend that he gave the moniker Cruel Summer after his recent album, and when he popped up, it was clear why... she wanted to impress him.
The reality doyenne was struggling to contain her curves - growing bump and THAT derriere - in the extremely tight black bodycon dress, but she obviously determined to make a sexy effort for the rapper.
She didn't look comfortable, though, especially when climbing into her car.
