Happy birthday, Khloe Kardashian!
To honor her little sister’s birthday, Kim shared a family photo of her, Khloe, and their respective babies, Chicago West and True Thompson!
These two little cousins are absolutely darling and melting hearts everywhere. Take a look!
It’s Khloe’s birthday today!! She is now 34.
Big sister Kim took to Instagram to honor Khloe on her special day.
“Happy Birthday to one of my favorite souls on this planet! @khloekardashian,” Kim writes.
Kim then appears to allude to Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal, but only indirectly.
“This year,” Kim writes. “You have shown strength like none other.”
Though Kim doesn’t care for Tristan, she writes to her sister: “I admire you for always following your heart.”
“I love seeing you as a mom and can’t wait for the years ahead,” Kim says.
Finally, Kim writes: “Let’s celebrate you today! I love you to infinity!”
That is so sweet.
But this photo is sweeter.
Kim shared this photo with her message.
In it, we see Kim (wearing her problematic braids again — she’s really doubling down on that, huh?) sitting beside the birthday girl, Khloe.
But it’s not the sisters who steal the show — it’s the cousins.
Seated in Khloe’s lap is precious baby True, who is just a couple of weeks past being two months old.
And on the other thigh is Chicago West, who is more than a week past being 5 months old.
They’re too cute for words!!
Both girls are adorable, but Chi looks noticeably older and more engaged.
For the sake of fairness, take a look at Chicago when she was about two months old.
As you can see, she’s grown a lot since then — that was more than half of her life ago!
(We know that it’s trite to say, but babies really grow up so unbelievably quickly)
Photos of Chicago are few and far between, as Kim Kardashian makes pics of her kids scarce — artificially inflating their value like the diamond industry does with little carbon prisms.
Fans have gotten to see many more photos of True, including a precious video that Tristan Thompson shared on Snapchat.
(That’s right, Snapchat — the next time that someone wonders who still uses Snapchat, just say “cheaters”)
A lot of Khloe’s fans and frankly a lot of Tristan’s fans consider his recent content to be a transparent ploy to soften his image and rebrand himself from a no-good cheater to a loving father.
But … these super adorable photos are very much appreciated.
True is not at fault for her father’s bad behavior. She is incredibly lovable.
Seeing her with her cousin, Chicago, is a real gift from Kim to all of us.
Khloe should have birthdays more often.
There’s a lot of disagreement over how many photos of celebrity babies and children are appropriate to share with the world.
Some parents believe that only some baby pics are okay. Some don’t see a problem wtih a constant stream of pictures of their precious bundles of joy.
And some don’t share any photos of their children and don’t think that any parent should — it’s that child’s face and it’s for them to decide when they get shown to the world.
As we mentioned, Kim limits how many photos of her kids go out into the world so that she doesn’t overexpose them and hurt their brands.
Khloe seems to be unable to resist showing off True. She’s a new mom, so we get it.
We don’t know what the right choice is with celebrity children, but we can’t see the harm in showing off a cute baby photo every now and then.
