Kim Kardashian has shared a loving tribute to her first-born daughter North on her eighth birthday.
The businesswoman, 40, shares her eldest child with estranged husband and rapper Kanye West – and she took to Instagram on Tuesday to celebrate her special day with a heartfelt message.
The reality star shared a range of gorgeous snaps channelling her inner Jackie O and posing with her lookalike daughter from behind-the-scenes of a photoshoot with Steven Klein.
Kim took the moment to reflect on the strong bond that she and North have built over the years, and thanked her mini-me for "bringing so much love and joy into all of our lives".

"My 1st born baby North is 8 years old today!" a gushing Kim began. "North, one day you will see these messages all printed out for you in the books I am making for you and so hope you feel the love because you bring so much love and joy into all of our lives!"
The mum-of-four continued: "You are the silliest, most stylish, most creative person who knows exactly what they want in life! I’ve never met anyone like you!"

Kim added: "I picked these BTS to post of North and I from this Steven Klein Jackie O shoot bc it just reminded me of the bond North and I share and he always captures the emotion so well!"
Plenty of Kim's friends rushed to the comments section to wish little North a happy birthday.
North has three other siblings – Saint, five, Chicago, three and two-year-old Psalm – who she adores very much.
The reality star says her daughter is a 'bundle of joy'
It comes after her famous mum and dad are said to be getting on well now that they are divorcing.
Kim and Kanye revealed earlier this year that their marriage was at an end – seven years after they tied-the-knot in an extravagant ceremony in Italy in front of friends and celebrities.
But now that the pair have split and are making arrangements for their respective futures, they are said to be getting along “peacefully”.
They share a very close bond
A source told Heat Magazine: “Kanye stays for an hour or so each time, because they want this to be a gradual process.
“There’s still a lot of issues to be resolved with splitting assets and agreeing to a firm custody agreement, and that will be done through mediation when the time is right.
“For now, they just want to establish some ground rules and keep things civil for the kids.
North is one of four children
“Eventually, Kim wants them to get to a place where they can respect each other’s wishes.
“Kanye’s not exactly happy about the current situation, but as the dust settles, he’s taking a far more pragmatic view, which is why he’s agreed to these meetings. He’s willing to wait until they figure out a compromise.”
