Khloé Kardashian showered her daughter True Thompson with love as she celebrated her fifth birthday on Wednesday.
The 38-year-old reality star shared a bevy of throwback photos going as far back as her pregnancy to her Instagram Stories.
They were joined by tributes from her mother Kris Jenner, her reclusive brother Rob Kardashian and other family members.
‘Today is my angels 5th birthday [sic]!! I am NOT OK,’ Khloé gushed, after he daughter got to spend Easter doing crafts with her cousins. ‘True has changed my life in ways I could never express.’
She added, ‘I am so emotional over her getting older. What is wrong with me lol.’
She called the stream of photos ‘A walk down memory lane,’ and added that she was ‘sobbing.’
‘True I love you beyond measure,’ she added sweetly.
Following several lovely black-and-white maternity photos highlighted Khloé’s baby bump, she shared several delicate photos of True as a newborn. She wore an adorable cream-colored dress in a photo from when she was slightly older.
The little girl got plenty of quality time with her cousins after she was born.
In one photo, Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter Penelope Disick snapped a picture of her with a camera, while another image showed True sitting next to her older cousin Reign Disick.
One cute photo showed Rob’s daughter Dream, Kim Kardashian’s daughter Chicago and Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi all sitting in a row next to True.
But Khloé also paid tribute to her daughter’s late grandmother Andrea, the mother of her True’s dad, Tristan Thompson.
The little girl’s grandmother beamed for the camera while holding the chubby baby. ‘We miss you Gigi! thank you one of our angels. We feel you every day,’ she wrote sweetly.
Andrea died in January of this year after suffering a heart attack.
Kris Jenner also helped ring in True’s birthday bright and early on Wednesday morning, posting a birthday tribute gushing about her grandchild.
She shared a slew of cute snaps of ‘TuTu’ with her family, and tagged True’s parents, Khloe and Tristan, in the first image.
‘Happy birthday to my beautiful granddaughter True!!!! You are such a gorgeous light with your mesmerizing smile and your effervescent personality that captures our hearts and lights up every room!’ she began in the lengthy caption.
‘You are such an amazing daughter, granddaughter, cousin, best friend, and the perfect sister. You have such a beautiful spirit about you, and are so kind, sweet, giving, generous, thoughtful, and are the best dancer ever!!!! Thank you for bringing so much happiness, joy, and love to our family.
‘I love you so much TuTu and I am so blessed that God chose me to be your grandmother…. I love you to the moon and back!!!! Forever and ever… Lovey xo,’ she posted, along with a slew of emojis.
The post included photos of True as a baby to more recent snaps with her cousin Dream Kardashian.
In one adorable snap, Kris sat at the edge of the pool with her grandchild as True kissed her cheek.
It also included a photo of Khloe, all glammed up in red at the family’s most recent Christmas party. She held hands with her daughter, who also wore a red dress.
Khloé’s reclusive brother Rob also shared a photo to Instagram of True wearing adorable rabbit glasses while doing crafts for Easter with his daughter Dream Kardashian.
‘Happy Birthday True! We love you!’ he captioned the post for himself and Dream, who is often pictured having fun with her cousin.
The post comes amid rampant speculation Khloe had reconciled with Tristan after calling it quits with him last year.
Khloe added fuel to the fire when she liked a post announcing her ex Tristan Thompson had joined the Los Angeles Lakers.
The post, which unveiled Tristan and Shaquille Harrison as the newest players to join the team, was shared to the Lakers’ official Instagram account on Sunday. It depicted Thompson in his new jersey.
Khloe was among the countless fans ‘liking’ the announcement.
This all comes after a source claimed Khloe and Tristan act like a couple behind closed doors, despite their messy and dramatic split last year.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the professional basketball player – who has reportedly moved just two houses away from her – have apparently been acting very much like husband and wife when nobody is around.
According to a source that spoke to OK!, ‘Khloe says she’s single, but in private, she acts like Tristan is her husband.’
Tristan, who has been at the center of several cheating scandals, and Khloe share two children together, daughter True and a newborn son whose name has not been released to the public yet.
The source also shared with the outlet that the pair ‘do everything together,’ despite the Good American founder claiming she’s still not back together with the basketball star.
‘He is there for breakfast most mornings and lunches and around all day. Most evenings, they do bedtimes and hang out together. If you go to the house, he’s always around.’
In addition, the insider also spoke about the actual status of their relationship is, and noted that it’s ‘complicated.’
They continued: ‘They are not together — but they act like a couple, and neither are they free to be with other people, they say. Tristan says the only thing he wants is for them to be together as a family.
‘Tristan is desperate for her forgiveness and for her to love him again,’ the source explained.
‘In the past, she’d forgive him, but now, keeping him hanging out seems to be the only way that Khloe can control him.’
Khloe and Tristan originally split in 2021 after it emerged Tristan had fathered a child with Maralee Nichols during his relationship with Khloe. That child, Theo, was born last year.
He also shares six-year-old son Prince with his ex Jordan Craig.
