Kanye West has been a big part of Kim Kardashian West‘s life over the past decade, and on Wednesday, the 43-year-old rapper took to Twitter to celebrate his wife’s 40th birthday, with a throwback photo from their 2013 engagement.
“Been doing empty stadiums,” he captioned the kissing photo of the pair inside the empty San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park. “Happy 40th birthday!!! I love you so much.”
It’s been a year of highs and lows for the couple, who share four children — North, 7, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 1.

After Kanye announced his intention to run for president of the United States on July 4, he made some controversial and personal statements about his wife and his family during a South Carolina rally. The event caused Kim to release a rare statement about her husband’s bipolar disorder and was followed by a public apology from Yeezy.
In recent months, the pair has been spending more time together, with their family and on date nights.
“The couple has been spending a lot of quality time together with their kids and family,” a source told ET of the spouses earlier this month. “They’ve been trying to spend time in places that are slower or more calm like Colorado so they can enjoy their time without worrying about paparazzi or fans interrupting.”
Kanye wasn’t the only loved one to share birthday well-wishes with the reality star.
