Rob Kardashian made a return to social media for a very special reason this week.
The 33-year-old, who tends to stay away from the spotlight, shared a rare snapshot on Instagram in celebration of his niece Stormi Webster's third birthday.
The candid photograph shows Rob lovingly wrapping his arms around Kylie Jenner's daughter as they cuddle up together on an armchair. "Happy Birthday STORMI!" he wrote.

The post proved a big hit with Rob's fans – and his famous family. Stormi's delighted mum Kylie shared a series of love heart eyes emojis, and sweetly wrote "Uncle Bob" in the comments section.
Followers were just as thrilled by the image. "Omg. Finally a pic of the 2 of you!" one wrote. A second noted: "That's a lot of happiness in one photo!" And a third commented: "The most sincere love."

Rob is himself a proud father of one. The reality star welcomed his daughter Dream with ex-partner Blac Chyna in November 2016.
He often shares snapshots of his little girl on Instagram; just last month he posted a picture showing Dream wearing one of his old childhood T-shirts. He wrote: "She found Robert's shirt when Robert was just a child!" alongside the photo showing Dream giving her dad a thumbs up.

In November, Rob paid a loving tribute to his daughter, in celebration of her fourth birthday.
"Happy Birthday to my baby girl!! I am so proud of the sweet and smart girl that you are! Thank You for bringing so much Happiness to my Life :) Daddy Loves You," he wrote.

Dream's aunt Kim Kardashian also shared a sweet message: "My little baby Dream. You are such a light! You are the best friend my babies could ever ask for! I love you so so much!!! Happy Birthday!!!!"
Little Dream frequently appears in family snapshots with her young Kardashian cousins; Kim's four children, North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and one-year-old Psalm; Kourtney's kids, Mason, 11, Penelope, eight, and six-year-old Reign; Khloe Kardashian's daughter, two-year-old True, and, of course, little Stormi.
