Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have the kind of love everyone wants. They’ve been together since 2012, but despite Kardashian’s insane amount of fame, the two keep their relationship private. They hardly post photos with one another, and Kardashian tends to focus her social media on her kids and career rather than her husband. But this year, Kardashian’s husband got her a massive birthday gift — and she wanted to make sure the world knew.
Kardashian and West’s relationship just feels right
Kardashian and West had known each other for years before they crossed from friendly to romantic. Kardashian had made her share of mistakes when it came to dating, and since she was spending so much time in the spotlight, she was constantly under pressure to make things work with her partners. Kardashian admitted years later that she only went through with her wedding to Kris Humphries because she wanted to prove everyone wrong who thought she was making a mistake. Kardashian also got married on a whim when she was only 19, though most people don’t hear about that today. But third time’s a charm — she and West started dating seven years ago, and it seems like things in her love life finally fell into place.
Kardashian has been very focused on prison reform lately
Since Donald Trump took office, Kardashian has made sure her voice in politics is heard. Though she traditionally doesn’t get involved in the nitty gritty of politics, Kardashian has made a point to bring to light unfair cases of prisoners serving sentences seemingly far worse than the crime committed. She caught wind of Alice Johnson, a woman serving a life sentence for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense. Kardashian worked hard to free her and has since been focusing a lot of her attention on prison reform.
West spent $1 million on her gift — a donation to charities that support her favorite causes
For Kardashian’s birthday, most people bought her material things, which is to be expected. And while she acknowledged all of them in a recent Instagram post about her birthday, she gave special attention to West’s gift. Her husband had decided to donate $1 million to various charities on behalf of him and his children. Though Kardashian didn’t specify the charities, she said they were ones “that work so hard on prison reform.” It’s clear Kardashian has a passion for righting legal wrongs.
Kardashian has worked hard to use her fame for good
Ever since the Kardashian family rose to fame, they have had to battle with the idea that they are famous for nothing. And while some might always believe that, Kardashian has worked hard to use her fame to do good for others. She has brought prison reform to light and has even met with President Donald Trump to bring attention to the matter. She is currently enrolled in law school and hopes to receive a law degree to then further her ability to help others. Though her rise to fame might have been a bit more unconventional, she’s making sure to put it to good use.
