Chicago West turned one on January 15, and mom Kim Kardashian and dad Kanye West spared no expense in throwing her an extravagant first birthday bash. After all, you only turn one once!
The theme of the party was Alice in Wonderland, and it certainly did not disappoint. Complete with an elaborate floral entrance, actors dressed to the nines portraying some of the most iconic Alice characters, party favours, a maze, themed craft tables and an exquisite-looking collection of sweet treats, the youngest of the Kardashian-West clan celebrated in style.
As celebrity guests like John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and their two children, Luna and Miles joined in on the fun, mama Kim shared the excitement of the day via her Instagram stories - allowing all of us a glimpse into the lavish life and celebrations of America's favourite reality family. We even got to see cameos by big sis and bro North and Saint as they decorated party favours, played with balloons, moved giant chess pieces across the board - and who could forget this adorable exchange with big brother Saint helping the birthday girl take a sip of water?
This party wasn't the start of celebrations for little Chi, by any stretch. Last week, Kim shared Aunt Kourtney's birthday gift via social media - a mini black and gold Mercedes G-Wagon, which apparently matches her mom's! The gift was revealed during a family dinner and has working headlights, plays music and yes, fits all three kids.
While little Chicago's first birthday is definitely a big deal, there's a lot more excitement on tap for the Kimye family in 2019. At the beginning of the month, a source close to the couple revealed that they are expecting their fourth baby via surrogate, which is reportedly a boy.
Kim has been open in the past about her pregnancy struggles, and while she gave birth to her first two children, her decision to opt for a surrogate for Chicago - and subsequently, the newest addition - was multifaceted. The reality star and makeup mogul suffered from pre-eclampsia with North, and during both pregnancies, she also had placenta accreta - a condition that occurs when the placenta attaches too deeply to the uterine wall.
Her decision to turn to surrogacy has seemed to suit her well, however.
"I enjoyed the surrogacy process. When it came time to breastfeed, I realized it was the best decision I have made — it's a game changer," she said. "I can spend so much more time with the older kids, getting them used to the new baby."
The newest little one will complete the family sometime in early 2019 and join big sister North, 5, big brother Saint, 3, and of course Chicago, 1.
