Kim Kardashian celebrated Saint West turning 1-year-old on December 5 with never-before-seen photos shared on her app. Kim’s friend, Jonathan Cheban, took over her app and posted two photos of Saint with her permission.
“In honor of his birthday, I convinced Kim to let me share some never-before-seen pics! Happy birthday, Saint!”
Cheban also uploaded one of the images to his Instagram account to announce he shared photos on Kim’s app as well. Saint is seen lying down with Kardashian as she attempts to give him a kiss. The baby puts his hands on his mom’s face as she puckers up towards him in the sweet photos.
Jonathan expressed how much he loves Saint, and all babies, in his caption.
“I can’t believe today is Saint’s first birthday! One thing people may not know about me is that I’m obsessed with babies.”
This may help explain to fans why Cheban was picked to run Kim’s app and share the photos of little Saint West. Kris Jenner also took to Instagram to wish her grandson a happy birthday by posting yet another photo of the baby.
“Happy birthday to our sweet angel, Saint!”
Jenner also included several hashtags to show her love for Saint as she wished him a happy birthday.
Kim’s older sister Kourtney Kardashian also shared a personal image of Saint as she posted a selfie she took on the day he was born. In the caption, Kourtney affectionately refers to her nephew as “Sainty” while wishing him a happy birthday. Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner wished their nephew a happy first birthday via their own apps, reports E! News.
Kendall posted a sweet message to Saint as he turns 1-year-old along with a couple photos previously released to fans.
“Saint, I can’t believe it’s been a year since you came into our lives! You’re the sweetest addition to the fam. Even though you’re still so young, you already have the most happy and amazing personality. I love you!”
While Khloe posted a stroller photo of Saint with yet another heartfelt message for the baby.
“Watching my little Saint grow this past year has been amazing. He’s seriously such an angel and could not be more adorable. What a light he’s been for our family!”
Carla DiBello, one of Kim’s good friends and a reality show producer, shared another look at Saint on her Instagram account today.
Saint is seen wearing a camouflage onesie as he sits on DiBello’s lap in the never-before-seen photo. So far, Saint’s birthday has been low-key as Kim still recovers from the Paris robbery and Kanye deals with medical issues related to exhaustion. Fans shouldn’t be surprised the Kardashians didn’t plan an extravagant party for Saint as the family continues to heal following the traumatic experiences.
In fact, even Kim’s October 21 birthday was quiet as Kanye West and friends took to sharing photos on social media in celebration. Now, since West’s hospitalization, it seemed even less likely the family would throw a large party honoring Saint’s birthday. However, fans may see some photos in the future of what Kim and Kanye did do to celebrate their son’s first birthday as they did with this year’s Halloween photos.
Rob Kardashian took over Kim’s app and posted several snaps of the family dressed for Halloween. Saint was seen dressed as Aladdin while sister North matched Kim in a Princess Jasmine outfit. Just because there’s no word yet on how the family is celebrating Saint’s birthday, doesn’t mean they aren’t. Fans can be sure Kim and Kanye did do something special to honor their son on his first birthday, but will just have to wait to find out exactly what that was.
