Kim Kardashian was a no-show as Kanye West celebrated his birthday in New York City. But there is no trouble with their relationship. The 31-year-old, who is used to jet-setting all around the world, is not able to fly anymore as she is due to give birth to their first child, a girl, next month.
While the reality star remained in Los Angeles, Calif., West, who turned 36 years old, shared the special day with fellow rappers and friends Jay-Z and Nas. Beyoncé also attended the event with her husband and laid the pregnancy rumors to rest once and for all, wearing a midriff-baring shirt and form-fitting skirt.
During the birthday celebration, Nas shared a private photo of the three rappers along with the caption, “Yeezus x Hov x Godson...The 3 Gods. Happy birthday to my brotha Kanye! [sic]”
In her absence, Kardashian posted a collage online of special date nights the couple shared together. “Happy Birthday to my best friend, the ❤of my life, my soul!!!! I love you beyond words!" read the photo caption.
The pair were known to be together last on Wednesday, when West joined Kardashian as she held her baby shower in California. He gave her a surprisingly sentimental gift ahead of their daughter’s birth. The rapper, who showed up at the end of the star-studded event, found out what books Kardashian’s father read to her as a child and bought a vintage collection for her to read to their daughter. Robert Kardashian, best known for being a major figure in the O.J. Simpson legal case, died of esophageal cancer in September 2003 at the age of 59.
Celebrity attendees included trainer Tracey Anderson, reality star NeNe Leakes, socialite Nicole Richie and television personalities Maria Menounos and Kelly Osbourne. The only males in attendance were Lamar Odom and Scott Disick, who are in relationships with Kim’s sisters Khloe and Kourtney, respectively.
After the event, Kardashian tweeted, "WOW an amazing baby shower! So much luv there Thank u @KrisJenner@KourtneyKardash @KhloeKardashian Shelli & Allison Azoff 4 the magical day. Truly such a special day. I honestly feel so blessed and filled with so much love!"
