The Kardashian sisters are paying tribute to their late father Robert Kardashian Sr. On Saturday, February, Kim, 39, Khloe, 35, and Kourtney, 40, took to their social media to honor the lawyer on what would’ve been his 76th birthday.
Kourtney honored her dad with a throwback photo on Instagram. In the snap, a young Kourtney and Kim were seen giving their dad a kiss on the cheek as he held them on his lap and smiled. “Happy Birthday to my Daddy,” Kourtney captioned the snap.
Kim paid tribute with a throwback photo as well. “Happy Birthday dad! Miss you beyond understanding. Wish you were here to see it all!” the KKW Beauty founder wrote.
Khloe took to her Instagram Story and shared several of her favorite throwback family photos. “Happy birthday to my handsome daddy!!” the reality star wrote alongside the snap.
Kris Jenner has paid tribute to her ex-husband in the past. In 2017, the momager shared an old family photo on her Instagram account with the caption, “There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t miss you.”
Robert became a household name after he helped defend O.J. Simpson during his infamous 1994 murder trial. The famed businessman was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in July 2003 and died less than eight weeks later on September 30, 2003. He was 59.
During a discussion for her Oxygen documentary Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project, at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Saturday, January 18, the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star got candid about balancing motherhood with her passion for criminal justice reform and the law—something Robert dealt with as well.
Kim explained, “There are times when I could be frustrated and studying really late and have to get up and wonder how he did it, having four kids and must’ve been going through some of the same things that I have gone through.” She added, “So it would have been exciting to talk to him about that, and I know that he would be so, so, proud.” The KKW Beauty founder is set to take the bar exam once she completes her four-year apprenticeship with a law firm in San Francisco.
