Kim Kardashian West kicked off the end of the week by taking it all off.

The 37-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shared a nude photo of herself to Instagram early Friday morning — her famous curves on full display as she laid in bed topless with a bed sheet strategically covering her nether regions.

Shot by fashion photographers Mert and Marcus (Mert Alaş and Marcus Piggott), the post came attached with a cheeky caption: “Night Cap.”

Hours earlier, the KKW beauty mogul wore slightly more clothes in a Thursday evening Instagram shot that showed her reclining on a silver Rolls-Royce wearing white underwear and a white sports bra.

“Good night,” she wrote in the caption of the photo, which was taken by Kardashian Christmas Card photographer Eli Russell Linnetz. 

Of course, it’s been a busy week for Kardashian West.

On Monday, she and husband Kanye West welcomed their third child and second daughter, via a surrogate. The new baby, whose name has yet to be announced, joins siblings Saint, 2, and North, 4½.

A lot went into Kardashian West’s decision to hire a surrogate, as she explained on her website Thursday. And thought she wasn’t carrying her new baby girl, the experience still came with its fair share of obstacles.

“Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it’s the easy way out is completely wrong,” she wrote. “People assume it’s better because you don’t have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint.”

But despite the struggles, Kardashian West is counting her blessings surrounding her new daughter.

“I’m so grateful for modern technology and that this is even possible,” she said. “It’s not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I’ve ever had. Our gestational carrier gave us the greatest gift one could give.”

“The connection with our baby came instantly and it’s as if she was with us the whole time,” she added. “Having a gestational carrier was so special for us and she made our dreams of expanding our family come true. We are so excited to finally welcome home our baby girl.”

Authorities say two dogs found in the home where 13 children were allegedly discovered chained and malnourished in Perris, California, are healthy and trained.

While it is alleged that the 13 children of David and Louise Turpin were rarely fed and allowed to shower just once a year, the same cannot be said for the couple’s pet Maltese terriers.

The two female 1-year-old pups – one of whom is named Fluffy – are not only healthy, someone has taken the time to train them.

“The animals, one white and one black, appear healthy and friendly and are leash-trained, according to Christina Avila, a senior animal control officer,” a press release from the City of Perris said.

Authorities released images of the two seemingly well-fed sweater-wearing dogs as the canine siblings are being put up for adoption.

Expecting high interest in the pair – who must be adopted together – the City of Perris will hold a raffle to place the dogs in a new home, according to the release.

The dogs’ previous owners, the Turpins, were arrested after their 17-year-old daughter climbed through one of the windows of their Perris, California, home early on Sunday and called 911 using a disconnected cell phone she had found, authorities have said.

Police allege that thee 13 Turpin children — ranging in ages from 2 to 29 — were found living in squalor, with some “shackled” to furniture.

On Thursday, a prosecutor characterized the abuse the married couple allegedly inflicted on their children over a period of at least seven years as torture that included beatings, starvation and strangulation.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin alleges that the Turpins allowed the children to shower no more than once a year and none had “ever” seen a dentist, he said. They last saw a doctor more than four years ago, he said, and were fed very little.

Hestrin said the children suffered “severe caloric malnourishment.” Supposedly home-schooled, he said the kids “lacked a basic knowledge of life” when they were recovered from the Turpin residence.

The 29-year-old female victim, Hestrin said, weighed 82 lbs. when she was found.

Bizarrely, however, he said David, 57, and 49-year-old Louise allegedly purchased enough food for themselves and would leave some of it, including pies, out on the counter where their children could see — but could not eat it.

Hestrin said Thursday that the couple now faces 12 counts each of torture as well as seven counts of abuse of a dependent adult, six counts of child abuse or neglect and 12 counts of false imprisonment.

David is additionally charged with one count of lewd act on a child under the age of 14 by force, fear or duress.

Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was the biggest-selling album of all time, and it was richly rewarded by the Recording Academy, earning a then-unprecedented eight trophies, including album of the year in 1984.
