It's not often that we find ourselves wondering where a member of the Kardashian clan has been. (Usually, the answer is: All over my social-media feed, two seconds ago — where have you been?) But brother Rob Kardashian has been relatively press-shy for the past couple of years, though that doesn't mean the public has been in the dark about his tempestuous relationship with ex Blac Chyna.
News of a happier sort emerged for Rob on March 17, though, when the daddy of 2-year-old Dream celebrated his 32nd birthday. The day before the big event, his sweet daughter made headlines for planning a birthday bash for her pops, which came complete with a clover cake.
And on Rob's actual birthday, which coincides with Saint Patrick's Day, his family posted the sweetest tributes. Khloe Kardashian, to whom Rob has always been close, wrote a message from the heart.
"Always know that I am never far away. I will forever have your back! I will always answer any request, armed with advice, laughter, memories, and I guess some experience. Thank you for being such an incredible father, son and brother!! We are so lucky to have Dream and Dream is beyond lucky to have a daddy like you. Never change your sweet and hysterical spirit!! You are enough! You always will be!!" the message read in part.
Kim Kardashian sweetly wrote: "Happy Birthday to my one and only brother Robbie! I was looking through old pictures and all of the amazing memories came up. My best memories though are you as a dad and seeing what an amazing person you have become. I love you beyond."
Kourtney also chimed in with the birthday love. "To my brother, you have the most kind, compassionate and loving heart," she wrote. "You are weirder than anyone I know, with your multiple imaginary friends, most bizarre and amazing sense of humor. To laughing with you endlessly. I could not imagine life without you. Robert my love, Happy Birthday!"
Love poured in from the Jenner side of the family as well. "You are such a huge part of my heart. You have the most beautiful soul and I love you more than you can ever imagine. You are such a wonderful amazing caring and loving Daddy and it’s a joy to watch you with your baby Dream. I’m so proud of you Robbo and I love you more than you will ever know," mama Kris Jenner wrote.
We can feel the love from here — can you? According to some fans, this could be the start of Rob's reemergence in the public eye. Not only is his family here to vouch that he's the sweetest, funniest guy around, but (amazingly), Blac Chyna has kind things to say about him in public these days, too.
"Robert and I only concern is what’s in the best interest of our daughter that we both equally love," she recently tweeted. "Additionally, Robert is a wonderful father to our Dreamy!"
