Something about Sesame Street will forever be adored.
For Kourtney Kardashian, the much-loved Big Bird character is bringing back fond memories.
On April 17, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star updated her Instagram with five pictures. Fans are seeing a 2-year-old Kourtney getting acquainted with an unidentified person dressed as Sesame Street‘s Big Bird. As confirmed by Kourtney’s caption, the photos are from her second birthday.
The first picture shows Kourtney in a pink and white dress with matching hair ties. The anonymous Big Bird is holding this toddler in his (or her) arms. The character’s signature beak and bulging eyes take center stage, but something about Kourtney’s innocence draws the eye. In the second picture, Kourtney’s face is more easily identified. Her right hand is clinging onto Big Bird. While the third picture arguably shows less, the fourth comes as an adorable full-length shot. Big Bird is towering over the oldest Kardashian amid a backyard setting with multi-colored balloons. The final snap shows Kourtney once again being held. This time, her focus is on the cartoon character.
Within minutes of being shared, fans were already breaking the post down. One left his thoughts.
“The unimpressed Kourtney in Slide 2 is epic.”
Childhood has proven a major theme for Kourtney of late. Her new lifestyle brand, Poosh recently came announced as having a new CEO – Kourtney’s 6-year-old daughter had her status confirmed earlier this month, per The Inquisitr. Poosh itself is named after Kourtney’s eldest daughter, Penelope, This Is Insider reports.
The Kardashians and Jenners have received their fair share of criticism for having been raised in luxury. Kylie Jenner recently made The Inquisitr‘s headlines for “defending” her self-made billionaire status before admitting to having received “help.” Just yesterday, Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to shut down suggestions that “money” or “privilege” are behind her success. The statement came as a caption to a picture showing Kim apparently studying for the California State Bar.

Last year I registered with the California State Bar to study law. For the next 4 years, a minimum of 18 hours a week is required, I will take written and multiple choice tests monthly. As my first year is almost coming to an end I am preparing for the baby bar, a mini version of the bar, which is required when studying law this way. I’ve seen some comments from people who are saying it’s my privilege or my money that got me here, but that’s not the case. One person actually said I should “stay in my lane.” I want people to understand that there is nothing that should limit your pursuit of your dreams, and the accomplishment of new goals. You can create your own lanes, just as I am. The state bar doesn’t care who you are. This option is available to anyone who’s state allows it. It’s true I did not finish college. You need 60 college credits (I had 75) to take part in “reading the law”, which is an in office law school being apprenticed by lawyers. For anyone assuming this is the easy way out, it’s not. My weekends are spent away from my kids while I read and study. I work all day, put my kids to bed and spend my nights studying. There are times I feel overwhelmed and when I feel like I can’t do it but I get the pep talks I need from the people around me supporting me. I changed my number last year and disconnected from everyone because I have made this strict commitment to follow a dream of mine - It’s never too late to follow your dreams. I want to thank Van Jones for believing in me and introducing me to Jessica Jackson. Jessica along with Erin Haney have taken on the role of my mentors and I am forever grateful to them both putting in so much time with me, believing in me and supporting me through this journey. This week I have a big torts essay due on negligence. Wish me luck ✨⚖️
Wealthy as these women may have been growing up, one aspect of their lives now comes with some normalcy. Sitting at home watching Sesame Street forms childhood memories for millions of Americans. The only element of privilege in Kourtney’s picture lies in the possibility of the family having hired the Big Bird impersonator. Then again, it could have been a family member or friend.
Some fans are finding the Big Bird portrayal a touch unnerving, though. One comment aired this.
“Why big bird looks scary @kourtneykardash”
