Rob Kardashian has been struggling with his weight gain as of late, but on his 27th birthday today, which also marks St. Patrick’s Day, his family made the reality star feel very special with a series of photos.
“Happy Birthday to my baby bro @robkardashian I love you soooo much!!!!” wrote Kim, 33.
Kourtney, 34, uploaded a shot of Rob hugging her and baby daddy Scott Disick.
“Happiest of happy birthday to my little baby brother Roberto. Your soul shines bright. Can’t wait to hug you tonight.”
Unlike her sisters, Khloé, 29, decided to put together a collage, which featured a funny photo of a young Rob dressed up in women’s clothing and one of the two playing piano together as children.
“Thank you for being there for me always and making me laugh constantly! You will always be my little brother… and I couldn’t have asked for a better one at that!”
Momager Kris Jenner took the opportunity to praise her only son. “You are the most amazing young man and the most wonderful son a mom could ever ask for,” she said.
And his 18-year-old sister Kendall Jenner uploaded six pics of the pair.
So what do all of the images have in common? They each show the handsome TV personality before he gained weight.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star also wished himself a happy birthday on the social media site, and uploaded a recent up close pic of himself.
On the KUWTK March 9 mid-season finale, doctors advised Rob he’s at a high risk of developing diabetes and eventual organ failure because of his weight gain.
This prompted Kris to give him a stern warning.
“Your liver is shutting down,” she said. “This is life-threatening at this point. You can only sustain this level of being unhealthy for so long.”
Kim, Kourt and Khloé’s younger brother acknowledged his health issues and said he’s intent on getting in shape.
“It’s a shock to me. I was at my best health at 26, and now I have numbers that are freaking my whole family out,” said Rob, whose father Robert Kardashian died from esophageal cancer in 2003 at just 59-years-old.
“My dad passed away super early, so my sisters could never handle that again…that’s what everybody is super concerned about.”
