In case you were worried, rest assured that yes, Khloé Kardashian‘s sisters did make it to Cleveland in time for the birth of her daughter on Thursday. In fact, as Khloé’s older sister Kim Kardashian West revealed on Twitter early Friday morning, she actually played a crucial role in helping Khloé deliver her baby.
“I’m so happy for you! Your baby girl is so beautiful! You are so strong, you made that look so easy! I can’t wait for our baby girls to grow up as best friends the way we are!” Kim tweeted at her sister, referring to her own newborn daughter, Chicago, who arrived on January 15. “I’m so happy I was able to return the favor of holding your leg while you pushed LOL.” In a follow-up tweeted directed at her followers, Kim added, “You guys she’s so gorgeous!!!!!”
Kim’s congratulatory tweets came just hours after she deleted a few controversial Instagram posts, possibly out of respect for Khloé. As People reported, as of Thursday afternoon, Kim had removed several photos from her getaway to Turks and Caicos with sister Kourtney Kardashian. The photos were posted on Instagram earlier this week amid news of alleged infidelity on the part of Khloé’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloé’s daughter. This timing led some fans to call Kim insensitive for continuing to post during her sister’s troubling time.
Other members of Khloé’s tight-knit family have also congratulated her on the birth of her first child. On Thursday, mom Kris Jenner retweeted a W magazine video in which daughter Kendall Jenner repeats the word “baby” over and over, adding, “BLESSED!!!” Also on Thursday, Khloé’s youngest sister Kylie Jenner posted a video on Snapchat while riding in the passenger seat of a car; a pink filter reading “Kongrats, Khloé! It’s a girl!” was overlaid on top of the video, while Cardi B and Chance the Rapper’s song “Best Life” played in the background. And while Kourtney has yet to post a message explicitly about Khloé’s daughter, she did take to Instagram on Thursday, shortly after reports of Khloé’s delivery first broke, to post a photo of her daughter Penelope, Kim’s daughter North, and a friend with the caption “GIRL POWER.”
