While they can't celebrate together, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the birthdays are likely a welcome distraction from the reports surrounding her personal life. 

Kim has been in Los Angeles with the four children she shares with Kanye: daughters North, seven, and Chicago, two, and sons Saint, five, and Psalm, who turns two in May.

Kanye meanwhile has been holed up in their ranch in Wyoming

Although Kim and Kanye have not commented on their relationship, Kanye's former neighbour, Kathy Griffin – who is also good friends with Kim's mum Kris Jenner – seemingly confirmed their impending split.

Taking to Twitter, the 60-year-old comedian wrote: "I think she really tried. Truly loves him. I like her. He certainly isn't the devil or anything, but I believe she tried everything to make it work.

"He made her laugh a lot and she embraced his eccentricities. She loves being a mom more than anything. There's my two cents."
