Happy (almost) birthday, North West!
Kim Kardashian’s eldest daughter’s 9th birthday may not be until June 15, but that didn’t stop her from celebrating early, as documented on their joint TikTok account over the weekend.
“Kuromi Time,” the mother-daughter pair captioned footage of North’s gifts, referencing a character from “Fantasy Magic Melody.”
Not only North receive favors modeled after the cartoon, but Kuromi herself was on hand to dance around.
Kardashian, 41, wore an all-black outfit while throwing stuffed animals with the almost-birthday girl in the video.
North’s dad, Kanye West, was not featured, and it is unclear whether the 45-year-old rapper was there.
“North is obsessed with Kuromi, so one of her best friends surprised her early with Kuromi-themed gifts delivered by the character to her house,” a source tells Page Six exclusively, explaining that North did not have a birthday party yet.
The Grammy winner, who also shares son Saint, 6, daughter Chicago, 4, and son Psalm, 3, with Kardashian, has been vocal in the past about his dislike of North’s TikTok access.
After a social media tirade in February about his daughter using social media “against [his] will,” West told his Instagram followers that he called Kardashian and asked her to “stop antagonizing” him with TikTok uploads.
The Skims creator subsequently defended their child’s creative outlet, writing via her Instagram Stories that “Kanye’s constant attacks … in interviews and on social media [are] actually more hurtful than any TikTok North might create.”
The reality star gushed that the platform brings North “happiness.”
She concluded, “As the parent who is the main provider and caregiver for our children, I am doing my best to protect our daughter while also allowing her to express her creativity in the medium that she wishes with adult supervision.”
Kardashian was declared legally single from West in March, one year after she filed for divorce from the rapper.
While the songwriter has moved on with Chaney Jones, Julia Fox and more models since their 2021 split, his ex is in a relationship with Pete Davidson.
The pair sparked romance rumors in October 2021, and the “Saturday Night Live” alum, 28, has now officially passed Kardashian’s “content taking boyfriend test.”
The KKW Beauty creator posted loved-up vacation shots with the “King of Staten Island” star on Monday. “Beach for 2,” she captioned the PDA pics.
