Kim, 36, has mostly avoided the media spotlight since she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, but attended the Impact Awards in Beverly Hills. The event recognised individuals and companies who have made an outstanding contribution to supporting LGBTQ families.

Despite avoiding the red carpet, she appeared on stage to present Jonathan, an executive producer of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and his partner Harvey Reese with an award created in their honour.

Wearing a strapless Rick Owens dress and diamond lip ring, Kim said: "Harvey was running a chain of retail stores and Jon had just finished filming a pilot for a reality show on MTV called The Real World. Harvey had serious doubts that a reality show would be successful but thought Jon was cute so decided to give it a shot anyway.

"Since that initial meeting, Jon has gone on to produce some of the most successful reality shows in history, including Project Runway, Road Rules, Bad Girls Club, Born this Way and my personal fave, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Season thirteen, tomorrow night, don't miss it.

"But the project that brings them their most pride and joy is their son Dyllan, who was born 18 years ago. At the time, there were very few resources for LGBT parents and their families, so Harvey threw himself into creating those resources, supporting existing organisations like the Family Equality Council and creating new opportunities like one of the first ever stay-at-home gay dads' groups."

Kim also praised Jonathan on Snapchat, writing, 'Tonight I was so honoured to give the family impact award to the man who believed in me from day 1, Jon Murray of Bunim Murray production.'
