Kris Jenner has lead birthday wishes to her daughter Kim Kardashian who today celebrates her 40th birthday.

The matriarch of the Kardashian family posted a series of images of her daughter on Instagram to mark the reality star's milestone birthday.

Jenner, 64, shared 10 photos of Kim from when she was a child until now. Her sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall are among those who feature, as do the star's four children North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two and Pslam, one.

In a caption, she wrote: "Happy Birthday to my Kimberly!!!

"You are such a beautiful soul and an amazing human being ... I thank God every day for you and for choosing me to be your Mom... you are the most incredible daughter, mommy, wife, sister, auntie and friend and make all of us feel so special and loved.

"Thank you for always being there for us and for every single precious moment and memory we make. I love you so so much, it’s impossible to even measure and I am so proud of all you do. You are my sweet, beautiful girl inside and out,

Meanwhile, British fashion designer Kim Jones, the artistic director of Fendi Women's, wrote: "Happy birthday dearest @kimkardashian sending ❤️"

Last night, Kim posted a family picture taken at her husband Kanye West’s ranch in Wyoming. In the picture, the star sat alongside sisters Kendall Jenner, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, plus her children Penelope and Mason Disick. Matriarch Kris Jenner, and her boyfriend Corey Gamble were also in the shot.

“Happy place” she wrote, adding a cowboy smiley emoji.

The shot is almost certainly a throw-back image - with the television star reportedly planning to jet a group of up to 30 people to a remote island to celebrate her milestone birthday.

According to Page Six, Kim has arranged for her closest family and friends to take a private jet to a secret location. Even her mother Kris is not said to know where the group are going.

Reports suggest the birthday girl will only tell party-goers where they are heading once they are in the air.

The location is likely to be in the Caribbean or Bora Bora - two favourite destinations of the Kardashians.

Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands is an option - although it can only take 22 guests.

Private island Kamalame Cay in the Bahamas, where Serena Williams honeymooned with Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian in 2017, is another option.

The group have reportedly all been tested for COVID-19 and will be tested over the weekend.

“All the guests know is when to be ready to be picked up for the flight, which will leave the Los Angeles area early next week,” said a source. “The destination is being kept strictly under wraps for privacy reasons, but that isn’t stopping everyone [from] speculating.”

Meanwhile, television network E! - where Keeping Up with the Kardashians is broadcast - is dedicating the entire day of programming and a special episode of the show to Kim today.

The family shocked the world when they announced the popular reality show would be coming to an end next year after 20 seasons.

Kim also sat down with the esteemed talk show host David Letterman for season two of his Netflix show David Letterman: My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.

Filmed during the pandemic, the star was supported by her famous family - with husband Kanye West also sitting in the audience.

She spoke about being held at gun point in her Paris hotel room in 2016 while two men stole her engagement ring.

"They kept on saying the ring,’ Kim said. "I was wearing a robe and I wasn’t wearing anything under it.

"I kept thinking this is the time I’m gonna get raped, prepare yourself…

"They said they tried it the last trip but Kanye was there so they were scared, so they saw on social media that I had a new ring."
