Mother’s Day holds a very special place in Kanye West’s heart.
Along with making sure his baby mama and future wife, Kim Kardashian, had a very memorable first one on Sunday, the 36-year-old rapper took some time out to pay tribute to his late mother, Donda West, in a simple and touching way.
“hi Mom,” he tweeted Sunday. That tweet was accompanied by a photo of a skyline with the sun peeking through the clouds.

Donda passed away at the age of 57 in 2007 after suffering complications from plastic surgery.

No one can ever replace his mother, but Kanye has grown close to Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner. And that was very evident on Sunday.
“And then there’s THIS!! What girl wouldn’t LOVE a little Saint Laurent and Maison Martin Margiela on Mothers Day?! Thank you @kimkardashian @kanyewest I love you both so much!!! #blessed,” the obviously happy momager shared on Mother’s Day.
And, of course, the Yeezus musician made sure his No. 1 gal was well taken care of — by way of his artistic vision.
Shortly after the new mom shared the adorable shot above, she revealed what Kanye did for her.
“I woke up to a wall of roses, hydrangeas and peonies!!! I have the best fiancé in the world! I love you so much baby!!!! #HappyMothersDay,” she captioned the pic below.
