Kim Kardashian West celebrated her big 40th birthday this week, and it was one glittery and fun affair, no doubt! But what really stole the show is husband Kanye West‘s super thoughtful gift for her. He got a hologram of Kim’s late father, Robert Kardashian, who speaks to her and wishes her a happy birthday.
Kim took to her Instagram to share the video of the hologram of her dad. She 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! We watched it over and over, filled with emotion.”
In the video, Robert Kardashian reminisces about seeing Kim as a little girl, and all the lovely memories they shared and says, “I am so proud of the woman that you’ve become, Kimberley, and all that you have accomplished.”

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 ✨
Kim’s father, Robert, was an attorney and died of cancer in 2003. This sure is such a sweet video to celebrate his memory, isn’t it?
Kim’s birthday celebrations in a private island did attract some controversy as they were trolled for leaving town and travelling in the midst of a pandemic. A recent clip from their show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians reveals that her sister, Khloe Kardashian also tested positive for the Coronavirus earlier this year.
