Kim Kardashian celebrated her 36th birthday quietly on Friday, maintaining her silence on social media since her robbery in Paris earlier this month. However, her family took to Instagram and Twitter to send many happy returns to the birthday girl by sharing sweet throwback snaps of the reality show star. 

The 36-year-old's special day is certainly different than her 2015 celebration. Last year Kanye West's wife shared with fans a photo of her lavish birthday cake, while detailing her party.

"My husband never ceases the amaze me! He rented out the entire movie theatre to screen the new Steve Jobs (It's sooooo good BTW) and had all of my family & close friends come dressed up as their best pregnant Kim look (fake baby bumps provided on arrival!)," Kim, who was in her third trimester with son Saint at the time, wrote.

She added, "Not sure if that was to make me feel less huge or just a fun cool theme but I loved it & had the best time ever, feeling so very comfortable eating churros with a bunch of pregnant women! Just what I needed, the perfect chill yummy food birthday!!!!"

While Kim has yet to Tweet or Instagram a birthday post, her family and friends have been flooding social media with love for the TV star.

Kris Jenner penned a beautiful tribute to her daughter, sharing a collage of throwback photos.

"Happy Birthday to my precious Kimberly! @kimkardashian I love and adore you... you have brought so much joy into all of our lives and you are the most wonderful daughter, wife, sister, friend and mom," the family matriarch wrote.

She added: "I thank God every day he blessed me with you and I cherish every single moment and memory. My heart is full of gratitude and I love you more than you will ever imagine or know... Mommy xo."

Likewise, sister Kylie Jenner sent birthday wishes to Kim with a vintage photo. Posting a picture from the birthday girl's sweet sixteen 20 years ago, Kylie wrote: "Happy Birthday Kimberly. I love you sister."

Kim was originally supposed to celebrate her 36th birthday at Hakkasan Las Vegas on October 28, but cancelled the appearance after being robbed at gunpoint of around £8.5 million ($11 million) worth of jewellery on earlier this month.

"Given recent circumstances, Kim Kardashian will be unable to make her previously scheduled appearance at Hakkasan Las Vegas Nightclub on Friday, Oct. 28," a spokesperson for the Vegas hotspot said in a statement to Entertainment Tonight.

Since the terrifying incident, select members of the Keeping Up with the Kardshian star's family have shared updates on the mum-of-two.

"[Kim's] not doing great," Kourtney Kardashian recently revealed on Australia's TODAY Extra.

"I think we're all really still shaken up and I just – you know, I think she has a big supportive family and I know that all the traumatic things that we've been through, we get through them together as a family. And that's what family's all about."
