From the moment they shared their first kiss Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's relationship was dubbed a 'publicity stunt'.
But there was nothing fake about Kim's smile as she headed out on the arm of her pop star boyfriend last night.
The reality star squealed with laughter as Kanye escorted her to the Tony-winning Broadway musical Book of Mormon last night.

Kim accentuated her voluptuous behind in a black satin dress complete with a peplum - a short overskirt that drew the eye to her waist.
It may be the height of fashion but this season's peplum style is notoriously difficult to wear.
But that didn't put off the famously curvy Kim.
The demure knee length dress, paired with two-toned stiletto heels, gave the 31-year-old a sophisticated air.
The brunette starlet completed the look with a gold bracelet on each arm.

Kim wore her long tresses blown out straight and appeared to have applied less make-up than usual.
Before heading out for the night, Kim took to Twitter to let her fans know she was back in the Big Apple.
She tweeted: 'Feels so good to be back in NYC! Fun spa day with @lorenridinger & @amberridinger! Now off to a date w my babyboo lol.'
While Kim dressed up for the night, Kanye kept things casual in white jeans, matching jacket and sweater white trainers.

Another revealed the lovebirds failed to stick around for the entire show.
'At The Book of Mormon, Kim Kardashian and Kanye came in late and already left #WhereAreYouYeezy?' the person tweeted.
The Book of Mormon is a religious satire musical with a book, lyrics, and music by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators the animated comedy South Park, along with musician Robert Lopez.
