While Kim Kardashian pulled out all the stops for her friends and family in order to celebrate her 40th birthday (on a private island, of course), it looks like her husband Kanye West also pulled off a MAJOR surprise and gift for Kim's birthday.
Kim shared on Instagram yesterday that Kanye gifted her an incredibly special HOLOGRAM of her father, Robert Kardashian Sr. who passed away in 2003.
Sources say that Kanye led Kim, Kris, Rob, Kourtney and Khloe into a dark room during her 40th birthday trip and played the hologram for them.
In the video Kim shared of the moment, we see that the hologram speaks for about 3 minutes, addressing Kim and letting her know how proud he is of her, and wishing her a happy birthday.
When sharing the special moment on Instagram, Kim wrote:
"For my birthday, Kanye got me the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime. A special surprise from heaven. A hologram of my dad. ✨🤍 It is so lifelike and we watched it over and over, filled with lots so tears and emotion. I can’t even describe what this meant to me and my sisters, my brother, my mom and closest friends to experience together. Thank you so much Kanye for this memory that will last a lifetime ✨"
While some think the gift is a little bizarre - which I understand - I actually think it's really, really special. Kim and her sisters and brother lost their dad when they were all still so young, and their lives have completely changed ever since. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be able to see him in such a lifelike way again, and to hear his voice.
Kudos to Kanye, clearly this meant so much to Kim and the rest of the family. An absolutely incredible gift.
And happy belated birthday, Kim!
