Kim Kardashian shared on Twitter that her husband Kanye West surprised her with “the most thoughtful” present for her 40th birthday - A hologram message from her deceased father, Robert Kardashian. She called it “the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime” and “a special surprise from heaven.”
“It is so lifelike!” she wrote. “We watched it over and over, filled with emotion.”
In the over 2 minute video Robert — who died of cancer in 2003 — tells Kim, “You’re 40 and all grown up. You look beautiful, just like when you were a little girl. I watch over you and your sisters and brother — and the kids — every day.”
It then reminisced about driving young Kim to school “in my tiny Mercedes” while listing to Barry Mann’s Who Put the Bomp. At this point, the hologram dances and sings along the song- letting a tiny laugh at the end.
“I am so proud of the woman that you’ve become, Kimberly, and all that you’ve accomplished. All of the hard work, all of the businesses you have built are incredible,” it said. “But most impressive is your commitment to become a lawyer and carry on my legacy. It’s a long and hard road, but it’s worth it, and I’m with you every step of the way.”
Talking about her Armenian roots the hologram said, “You are a proud Armenian, and I am a proud Armenian father.”
It seems likely that West, 43, wrote the script the hologram reads from which also mentions “you married the most (repeated 5 times) genius man in the world Kanye West. You are the most (repeated 4 times) amazing mother to your beautiful children and they are perfect.”
“Keep doing what you’re doing, Kimberly, you are a beautiful soul. Know that I am very proud of you and I am always with you. I have built a firewall around our family. I love you, Kimberly. Tell Kourtney, Khloe and Rob I love them and miss you all. Don’t forget to say your prayers,” the hologram finishes before dissolving into clouds.
