It’s been a pretty rough year for Kanye West, with Kim Kardashian’s terrifying Paris robbery, his own hospitalization, divorce rumors, and issues around having a third child. But his birthday (today!) could be the fresh start he needs. West is celebrating with his wife, Kim Kardashian, who posted a funny (yet wildly on-point) message for her hubby.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

“Happy birthday, babe!” Kardashian posted on her website. And while you might expect a sweetly sappy message to follow, lauding her fella on his big 4-0, she instead added, “I know you’re not on social media anymore, so you’re not gonna see it anyway — and I’m going to be with you to tell you!”

In case anyone is wondering why she would bother to write a note at all, the 36-year-old continued, “But if I don’t post it, then all the stories will start so… I love you so much! Happy Birthday!” Well, she has a point there. If she didn’t say *something* about West on his big day, plenty of peeps would be speculating over a possible glitch in their relationship.

There’s no need to worry about these two, however, as Kardashian also posted a message to her love on Instagram, saying, “Happy Birthday babe I love you so much! You inspire me every day to be a better person! I’m so grateful for you ❤️” Aw!

Would you have suspected that something was wrong if Kim Kardashian hadn’t posted about Kanye West’s birthday? Let us know @BritandCo!
