When Kim Kardashian blows out her birthday candles, it's tough to imagine what she'll wish for, as she's already living a pretty full life. Here are 33 reasons why it's great to be the reality star.
In June, Kardashian became a mother to an adorable baby girl, whom she and her boyfriend, Kanye West, named North.
Last year, Kardashian began dating her longtime friend, Kanye West, who clearly thinks she's the most perfect woman on the planet. "I was in love with her before I even got to even talk to her," he said in August.
Ever seen "Keeping Up with the Kardashians"? Then you know that Kardashian's walk-in closet resembled a small boutique full of bags, shoes and gowns of all colors.
... Or at least it was, until her boyfriend made her throw her things away. "Kanye's definitely inspired me to want to be a little bit more of an individual," she said. "I think my style's just evolving and changing, and I think it should."
Once, her ex-husband, NBA player Kris Humphries, threw her in the ocean and she lost a pair of diamond earrings worth $75,000. And those were just her vacation jewels.
The Kardshians are one close bunch. As we've seen in "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," Kim Kardashian, her sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian Odom, and her brother, Rob Kardashian, have supported each other through break-ups, divorces, babies, bullying and more.
But the person who runs the show, as we all know, is their mother, Kris Jenner. By executive producing the family's E! reality show, Jenner catapulted the family to superstardom and, naturally, her kids are grateful. In fact, Kim Kardashian made her first post-pregnancy appearance on her mom's talk show. "I watch you every single day and you are so amazing," she said. "I love you."
Kardashian's body is amazing, and she's never been shy about showing it off.
As evidenced by this.
Kardashian wanted her "glam squad" on-duty in the days leading up to North's birth, before deciding to go a more natural route. However, they've done a pretty good job making sure that the reality star always looks picture-perfect.
Kardashian just wanted her divorce from Kris Humphries to be finalized before North was born. She got her wish.
Not that Kardashian doesn't have a great winter wardrobe, but living in California makes it easy for her to rock her beloved short dresses year-round.
Most people go to parties for fun. Kim Kardashian goes for work, and for good reason. According to the Huffington Post, Kim Kardashian makes thousands from appearances. How much? Upwards of $100,000 in the states and $1 million internationally.
Google is full of fan sites, including one that has been operating since 2008.
Kardashian has been all over the world, from New York to London to Dubai and back again. Most recently, she and Kanye West visited Paris for fashion week -- their first big trip since becoming parents.
When Kardashian welcomed a daughter, Beyonce wished her congratulations online, and the reality star is often seen out with Ciara, Kelly Rowland and La La Anthony.
For a long time, the biggest loves in Kardashian's life were her nephew Mason and her niece Penelope, who call her "Kiki."
Stepdad Bruce Jenner, best friend Jonathan Cheban, stepbrothers Brody and Brandon Jenner -- Kardashian's got plenty of male support!
Kardashian is famous for her reality show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," but she also recorded a song, at one point, made an appearance on "Drop Dead Diva," and is currently shooting "American Dad." Busy lady!
After visiting a fertility specialist more than a year ago, Kardashian was told that she'd have difficulty conceiving a child. However, in December, Kanye West announced that Kardashian was expecting. "It's kind of a miracle," she said in January.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are building their dream home -- an $11 million mansion in the swanky Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Of course, Kardashian has influenced Kanye West's music. But these days, women are taking extra notice of what she's wearing, her hairstyles and more.
Brunette, blonde, bangs, braids -- Kardashian's done it all -- and well.
Not only do Kim Kardashian and her sisters own DASH boutiques in New York, Los Angeles and Miami, but they have their own affordable clothing collection too, the Kardashian Kollection.
Why just look like a Kardashian when you can smell like one too? The line features powder, mascara and more!
From weight-loss supplement Quicktrim to Midori liquor, Kardashian has made tons of money from hawking her favorite products.
During her recent trip to Paris, many designers showered Kardashian and West with couture clothing for their daughter, from Alexander Wang to Lanvin to Celine to Givenchy.
Kardashian's shoe collection is incredible -- and includes designs that you can't find in stores, courtesy of her beau. "A friend of mine, Giuseppe Zanotti, had a shoe factory out there [in Rimini, Italy] -- so I brought her there, and I sat there with Zanotti, and we sketched out shoes for her that were made from scratch and sent them to her," Kanye West dished to Kris Jenner this summer. "So she got to pick out her own Zanotti shoes."
Chanel, Balenciaga, Hermes -- what expensive designer purse doesn't Kardashian have?
Kardashian has more than 18.6 million Twitter followers, and 10.6 million people follow her on Instagram.
Lately, Kardashian has been doing Pilates to lose her baby weight and it's been working. "Kim loves these exercises," said Kristi Vacanti, owner of Pilates Plus Los Angeles. "It enables her to get a total body toning and calorie burning workout in, in under and hour so she can get back on with her busy day and baby North."
These days Kardashian has been sticking to the Atkins diet, but she'll let herself splurge every once in a while. During her pregnancy, she indulged in Krispy Kreme doughnuts and cheese fries from In N Out Burger.
Today may be her birthday, but Kardashian's not done celebrating. On Friday, she'll have a giant party in Las Vegas with a couple hundred of her closest friends.
