Believe it or not, Kim Kardashian turned 40 this week! The longtime reality star, fashion mogul, and now lawyer-to-be has been on our screens for as long as we can remember, and has really changed the game for reality TV and social media influencers.
The mom-of-four rang in her birthday on October 21, and although we didn’t see much evidence of any big celebrations on Instagram, we did get a behind-the-scenes look at her party on the new special episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
So wait, how did the Kardashian-Jenners have a birthday party for Kim this week, and then include it in last night’s KUWTK? We know the devil works hard and Kris Jenner works harder—but did the E! producers and editors really work that fast?
Well, the short answer is no, they didn’t.
How did KUWTK film Kim’s birthday party?
If you haven’t guessed by now, Kim Kardashian’s birthday party shown on KUWTK was filmed ahead of time. While it hasn’t been disclosed exactly when the celebrations took place, it certainly wasn’t this week. Some fans on Instagram suspect it went down in August.
Despite faking the timing, the sisters really went all out to ensure Kim Kardashian had the best early birthday. Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie all choreographed a dance together to perform at the surprise party, reminiscent of a dance performance Kris put together for Kim’s 10th birthday.
Of course, the sisters had a few blips along the way to get the dance right, but it turned out going super sweetly.
What is Kim doing for her birthday?
So fans might be wondering what Kim is doing for her actual birthday. As we previously reported, the rumor is that she’s going on an island getaway with her friends and family. If you start seeing Instagram Stories and posts from a tropical location, you’ll know why!
We hope Kim had a great 40th birthday and was showered with tons of love!
