Robert Kardashian would have turned 78 this week and his daughter Kim Kardashian shared a sweet selfie to commemorate her late father.

Many remember Robert Kardashian, an attorney and businessman, as OJ Simpson’s lawyer during his high-profile murder trial.

Kardashian was the father of Kim, along with her siblings Kourtney, Khloe, and Robert Kardashian. He was 59 years old when he died of esophageal cancer in 2003, just two months after his diagnosis.

Kim took to her Instagram to remember her dad with a sweet selfie of herself and her father on his birthday, February 22.

“Birthday selfie with my dad!” Kim captioned the pic. “We took this pic on this day celebrating his birthday at the Armenian restaurant in 1998.”

“Born on 2.22.44 and today it’s the angel number 2.22.22. I definitely feel the angels all around and feel you all the time. Thank you for always guiding and protecting all of us. Definitely celebrating you today dad. I miss you soooooo much. ♾”

Kim was just 18 years old as she posed with her dad, her hand resting on the side of her face, as her dad Robert squeezed into the pic next to her.

Kim referenced the “angel number 2.22.22,” referring to February 22, 2022, a once-in-a-lifetime date that many believe had special meaning. In numerology, the number 2222 is believed to “bear a particular energy or universal message” and the number two is known as “the number of intuition, observation, and relationships.”
