Rob Kardashian prefers to keep a low profile and rarely shares anything on social media, leaving that to his famous sisters and mom instead. 

However, the reality star made the exception this week to honor his late father, Robert Kardashian, on what would have been his birthday.

The father-of-two took to Instagram on February 22 to share a throwback picture featuring his late dad and mom, Kris Jenner, alongside a heartfelt tribute.

Rob's siblings, who are incredibly protective of their only brother, were some of. the first to respond to his post in the comments section. 

Khloe Kardashian wrote: "He’s with you everyday Bobby!! Remember that. Look for his signs. He’s trying to show you daily. Never forget how much he loves you. He is so proud of the dad you are!!!!!!" Kourtney Kardashian added: "I love u Bobby."

Rob wasn't the only member of his family to pay tribute to Robert on what would have been his 80th birthday. Kourtney took to her own Instagram page to share a number of throwback pictures of her and her dad, taken when she was a little girl. 

She wrote: "My Dad would have been 80 years old today. What I would give to sing him Happy Birthday and hear one of his funny jokes just one last time," she began.

"He had the best sense of humor and made life so much fun, like every car ride, every meal, watching movies (we had a movie date every Wednesday night and he would show me an old movie each week)… he made it all so fun and special. Happy Birthday to the best Daddy in the world." 

Kris - who divorced Robert in 1991 but remained on good terms with him - replied: "The best Daddy there ever was," alongside a series of red hearts and praying hands emojis.

Referencing the choice of her background sound, Khloe explained: "PS this audio can be viewed as sad or beautiful. I choose beauty. I am not sad anymore Of course I miss him every single day and wish he were here to meet our babies but I’m not sad. In fact, I feel blessed that I was chosen to have 19 years with the most incredible Man I have ever known. 

"Some people never get that. We did! Thank you for choosing such an incredible mommy to be by our side. Thank you Lord for choosing us to be together. Thank you for guiding us daily. Happy birthday daddy!!! Hold space for us."

"God really blessed us with the most amazing thoughtful, patient, funny, charismatic, loving and kind dad. I sooo wish you were here to meet all of our babies and see the life we created but I know you’re somehow behind all of it. Thank you for being the best example of the purest love."
