Kardashians Celebrate Late Dad Robert Kardashian’s 72nd Birthday (PHOTOS)
Monday marks what would have been the late Robert Kardashian’s 72nd birthday. His famous children, the Kardashians, are celebrating the occasion by posting tributes and remembrances in honor of their father. See photos below.
As Gossip Cop reported earlier, Kim Kardashian decided to reveal a photo of her son Saint West for the first time celebrate her father’s birthday. She explained on her website, “Today is my dad’s birthday. I know there’s nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren. So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all.”
In a separate blog post, Kim posted an old photo of her father (see below). In a message to him, she wrote, “Happy Birthday dad! I can’t believe you would have been 72 today. So much has gone on in our lives since you’ve been gone, and I know you have been my guardian angel seeing everything unfold! I love you and miss you so much!”
Kim shared the same picture and note on Instagram, along with an qbridged version on Twitter. She tweeted, “Happy Birthday dad!!! I love u & miss u so much!!!!!” Sister Khloe Kardashian also used social media to share bittersweet birthday wishes.
Along with a childhood photo showing her dad holding her as a little girl, Khloe wrote on Instagram, “To the best man I’ve ever known, happy birthday daddy. I miss you! I miss you! I miss you! Man… I wish we had more pictures together.” She posted a similar, shorter message on Twitter. Khloe was 19 when Robert died of esophegal cancer in 2003.
The older Kourtney also shared a photo of their father. She tweeted, “Happy birthday to my favorite man in the world who taught me everything. I wish I could hug you. I love you Daddy.” She added with another pic, “My first love.” And Kendall Jenner, though just a little girl when her half-siblings’ father passed away, is also recognizing the date.
“happy birthday. we miss you,” she wrote with a heart emoji and a photo of herself and a baby Kylie sitting in Robert’s lap. Kylie, meanwhile, shared picture of Robert with Rob Jr. as a little boy, noting, “Rob is a spitting image of his dad. I love this pic. Happy Birthday Robert.” Rob himself and Kris have not yet posted any social media acknowledgment.
Kris and Robert divorced in 1991, and she went on to marry Bruce (now Caitlyn) Jenner, with whom she had Kendall and Kylie. Robert, who was an attorney, has been back in the news lately, more than a decade after his death, thanks to David Schwimmer’s portrayal of him on “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.” As Gossip Cop has reported, the Kardashians were close family friends of Simpson and Nicole Brown, and Robert served on the former football player’s defense team.
