It comes as a surprise to literally no one that the Kardashian’s went all out to celebrate Kim Kardashian West’s 40th birthday in the middle of a pandemic. But honestly, no one expected anything less. The other day on October 23rd, Kim Kardashian West posted a bunch of photos from the “epic surprise party,” featuring skintight looks, “bottle service girls,” and a makeshift TAO nightclub red carpet. Tristan Thompson, Jonathan Cheban, Stephanie Shepherd, and Kanye West also attended the party, which was shown in part on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The entire party, as Kim explained in her caption, re-created her best birthday moments from over the years, including her sweet 16 and other childhood celebrations that were documented by her late father, Robert Kardashian.
“All I can say is WOW! My mom and my sisters threw me the most epic surprise party that was so special in my heart,” she wrote on IG. “You know I’m a sentimental person and this party was the most special. They re-created all of my special birthdays throughout my life from looking at all of our old home videos. They re-created the party, The same balloons, the same cake, everything! My dad videotaped and documented our whole lives so they showed each of the videos of my birthdays on a big screen behind the party.”
She continued, “I entered into the room that started off at my first birthday party with the same ponies and the same cake, and my dad wishing me a happy 1st birthday. Then as I entered in the room I ended up at my second birthday then my fourth birthday leading up to my 10th birthday where my sisters did the same exact dance that they did for me when I turned 10. We then got to my 16th birthday party and my exact same car was there waiting for me with the same exact balloons with the same cake. After a while, the curtains opened and the bottle service girls came out which happened to be my sisters and they re-created TAO night club, where I spent all of my 30s having my birthday parties.”
She added, “Each and every detail that went into this was so special and I am forever grateful to my family for taking the time to put this together to celebrate me turning 40. I can’t wait to share so many more birthday photos and videos with you guys soon and I thank each and [every one] of you who reached out with birthday wishes. Also shout [out] to @mindyweiss for putting this all together. You were there putting together all my birthday parties when I was a little girl so this definitely came full circle.”
