On Friday, November 3, Kendall Jenner celebrated her 28th birthday. As usual, the Jenner/Kardashian family posted tributes and sent gifts, but her little sister Kylie Jenner made sure to get a joke in with her offering.
In her Instagram Stories, Kendall shared a pic of a bouquet of sunflowers from Kylie, including the note, which read, “Happy birthday sister, 30 years old!!!! Times flies. Love you, Kylie.”
Over the image, Kendall wrote “Lmao” and pasted a middle finger emoji.
Kylie also shared a pic from the night to assure her followers that she did more for Kendall’s birthday than mock her. In a sweet image, Kendall is looking at her birthday cake lit up with candles and adorned with a photo of her as a child. She’s wearing a tight off-the-shoulder top and the table is covered in more desserts. One was decorated with the words “Happy Birthday Kendall,” while another said in icing, “Twenty ATEEE.”
Kendall’s mom, Kris Jenner, wrote a very loving tribute to her daughter with a carousel of photos and videos, beginning with a clip of Kendall’s recent Wonder Woman costume for Halloween.
“Happy birthday to my beautiful, kind, generous, giving, smart, talented, creative, amazing, and thoughtful daughter Kenny!!” Kris wrote in the caption. “Your smile is so bright and your energy is contagious and you make everyone you talk to feel like they are the only person in the room. You have the biggest heart and are so compassionate and caring to everyone. You are such a special and amazing daughter, sister, auntie, and friend and I am beyond blessed that God chose me to be your Mommy. I love you soooo much my beautiful girl.”
This is the first birthday Kendall has celebrated while dating boyfriend Bad Bunny. The pair were initially romantically linked in February 2023, but they’ve kept their private life fairly private all year.
