It’s officially spooky season which means all the October babies are gearing up for another birthday celebration. Kim Kardashian West is among the stars who have a fall birthday, but she’s not the only one. Here’s a look at a few other notable A-listers who’ll get to commemorate another trip around the sun in the coming weeks.
The life and career of Kim Kardashian West
Reality TV and business mogul Kim Kardashian West is the second oldest child of the Kardashian/Jenner clan. As a child, the star attended church with her tight-knit family on Sundays, and by the time her father — famed attorney Robert Kardashian — died, it was up to her and her siblings to drive the family business ventures.
Kardashian West got her “big break” through socialite Paris Hilton when she appeared on Hilton’s reality show The Simple Life. Kardashian West worked as Hilton’s stylist before catapulting to fame following the unfortunate exposure of a leaked sex tape with former boyfriend Ray J.
All the attention helped launch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which premiered on E! in 2007. Offers came pouring in for the star. A Playboy spread, Dancing With the Stars spot, movie cameos, and more, helped Kardashian West build her brand. Now, the advocate and spokesperson is worth an estimated $1 billion.
On Oct. 21 of last year, the mother of four celebrated her milestone 40th birthday, which means her 41st is coming up fast. Who else has a birthday this month?
