Kris Jenner and her family have been keeping a low profile as they help support Kanye West away from the spotlight. But on Sunday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star shared a special post on Instagram in tribute to mum Mary Jo on her birthday. The famous momager shared a selection of images of her mum – known to the family as MJ – from over the years, including some incredible throwback pictures featuring Kris with long hair. In the caption, the mother-of-six wrote: "Happy Birthday to my beautiful Mom MJ!!!! Mom I don’t know what I would do without you... thank you for all of the love you give to all of us every single day...

The Kardashian family will no doubt be looking forward to celebrating MJ on her special day. It's been a difficult time for Kim Kardashian in particular, who recently spoke out for the first time about her husband's bipolar, following a series of personal tweets he posted about his wife and family.
Kris is incredibly close to her mum
On Saturday evening, the singer apologised to his wife, and wrote on Twitter: "I would like to apologise to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me."
While Kim hasn't responded, she liked a comment from a Kardashian fan known as Flávia, who tweeted: "I love you both so much."
