“Happy Birthday Love U for Life!” she captioned an old family photo of them on a private jet with their children North, Saint and Chicago before their fourth child, Psalm, was born.
Khloe Kardashian sent a string of heart emojis in the Instagram comments, and also wished the rapper the best of birthdays on her own account, calling him her “brother for life.” Kim commented on that post with a balloon emoji.
The Skims founder kept up the celebration for her estranged husband’s 44th birthday with more photos on her Instagram Story, including a vintage shot of West in 1987 (which she also posted on Twitter separately), a picture of the former couple in a car with a classic “Happy BDay” caption, and a more recent family photo of the rapper with their four children.
The June 3 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians showed a glimpse of how Kim felt about her marriage issues with West, revealing her tearful confession to her sisters about how she felt “like a f—ing failure.”
Before her 2014 marriage to West, the 40-year-old reality star was previously married to songwriter Damon Thomas and NBA player Kris Humphries. “I feel like a f—ing failure that it’s, like, a third f—ing marriage,” she tells her sisters in the black-and-white clip from the E! show. “I feel like a f—ing loser, but I can’t even think about that. Like, I want to be happy.”
West filed for joint custody of their kids in April.
