Life begins at 40 ,this was evident as US rapper Kanye west celebrated his 41st birthday with family and friends in a night full of fun and laughter.
His wife Kim Kardashian could not let the day go unnoticed as she took to her social media platform to wish her hubby a happy birthday with the caption with a picture of the hip-hop star seated on a private jet, their four-month-old baby daughter Chicago on his lap, she wrote:
‘Happy Birthday babe!!!!! It’s been a wild year but we’re here & life is good!’
The mother-of-three said she was ‘proud’ of her hard-working husband.
‘So proud of you dropping back to back albums & fulfilling your dreams. You inspire me to make the impossible always become a reality. Love you.’
The accompanying picture showed Kanye with the infant nestled between his legs, checking his cell phone.
According to Daily Mail the image appeared to have been taken at the same time as a shot she shared back in April, captioned Party Of Five. That image also included Kim and the pair’s older children, North and Saint.
Kim wasn’t the only member of her family to celebrate Kanye on Friday, with her mom Kris Jenner sharing a touching message.
‘Happy birthday to my son Kanye!!’ ‘Thank you for being a constant inspiration, for being the most wonderful father, friend, husband and son. I am so blessed to have you in my life. #HappyBirthdayKanye #proudmama#love.’she wrote to her son-in-law, who lost his own mother Donda 11 years ago.
And Kim’s little sister Kendall Jenner joined in, sharing a picture of Kanye with the caption ‘Happy birthday big bro.’
Kim previously revealed she is planning ‘an intimate little dinner’ for Kanye’s birthday.
And the Bound 2 hitmaker certainly deserves to be waited on hand and foot on his special day as he’s been busy working in the studio over the past few months on his recently-released seven-track album Ye – for which the couple hosted an album listening party on Thursday night.
Kim also left him to clear up the mess after their daughter North’s unicorn-themed birthday party at the weekend and wanted him to be there when she opened her gifts.She explained: ‘He’s at home babysitting. He was going to come, and he wanted to come, but I’m staying a few extra days in New York. And so I said, “You know our daughter had her birthday party last night. She needs to wake up and open her presents, so you’re going to have to take that shift.” So he did that!’
Kim’s low-key approach to Kanye’s birthday will no doubt come as a surprise to fans as she stocked a plane with Japanese snacks and magazines for his 40th birthday last year and made him guess where they were going.
Taking to her Twitter account earlier this year, the reality star uploaded a photograph of Kanye beaming at the camera with his stash of Japanese candy sat in front of him.
She accompanied it with the caption: ‘Throwback to that time I surprised Kanye with a trip to Japan for his birthday! He had to guess where we were going based on the snacks and magazines I had the plane stocked with! He was happy! (sic
