Robert Kardashian would have been 72 if he hadn’t lost his battle with cancer in 2003, and his famous children haven’t forgotten him for a second. See what the Kardashian sisters wrote as special birthday tributes to their dad on Feb. 22 here!
Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are missing their dad more than ever on Feb. 22, as it’s the day he would have celebrated his 72nd birthday. But, sadly, Robert Kardashian died of cancer in 2003, so the famous family is remembering him with touching Instagram messages. Will Rob Kardashian join them with a post of his own?
The Kardashian ladies didn’t waste any time taking to Instagram to wish their dad a Happy Birthday, with all three of them doing so in the early morning on Feb. 22. “Happy birthday to my favorite man in the world who taught me everything,” Kourtney wrote. “I know you are with me but I wish I could hug you. I love you Daddy.”
Meanwhile, Kim used Robert Sr.’s birthday as a reason to share the first photo of her son, Saint West, but she also shared a separate, loving message. “Happy Birthday dad! So much has gone on in our lives since you’ve been gone, and I know you have been my guardian angel seeing it all unfold!” she gushed. “I love you and miss you so much!” And along with a photo of her and the late Kardashian patriarch, Khloe added, “To the best man I’ve ever known, happy birthday daddy. I miss you! I miss you! Man…I wish we had more pictures together.”
And even though they were so young when Robert passed in 2003, even Kendall and Kylie Jenner got in on the birthday love. “Rob is a spitting image of his dad,” Kylie wrote, alongside a photo of her brother and his dad. “I love this pic.. Happy Birthday Robert.” Kendall, meanwhile, uploaded a shot of her and Kylie adorably sitting on Robert’s lap with the simple caption, “Happy Birthday. we miss you.”
But as of 3 pm ET, Rob still had yet to share a message to his dad. We know the two were very close and that Rob took his father’s dead super hard, and since he’s been more active than ever on social media recently, it’s likely that we’ll see something from him at some point later in the day. We’ll be on the lookout, of course!
