Kris Jenner of Keeping Up With the Kardashians received an especially heartwarming 64th birthday present. Her daughter, Kim Kardashian, rented out the family's childhood home in Beverly Hills.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians is one of the longest-running reality television series in the United States with its 17th season premiering just this past September. Some could argue Jenner has undergone the most personal growth on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The matriarch, who now has 10 grandchildren, has seen her share of ups and downs. At 64, Jenner is an unstoppable force. Jenner works as the manager to all of her 6 children and is dating Justin Bieber's old tour manager Corey Gamble, who is 26 years younger than her.
Kim, who told family and friends that they were having lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel, posted a video to her Instagram of the moment she revealed her surprise. Jenner burst into tears almost immediately upon seeing the invitation with the change of location. The Kardashians are a tight-knit and sentimental bunch. The Beverly Hills home Kim rented is where they lived with their father, Robert Kardashian before he died of esophageal cancer in 2003. "All of our memories live here especially with our dad," Kim wrote in an Instagram caption of a photo of her, her sisters, and her mom sitting on a white rented Mercedes, "It's where each Kardashian child was born and made us who we are."

Today we celebrate my mom. Anyone that knows her, knows how sentimental she is. For her birthday I planned a small lunch, with just her kids and her closest friends of 40 + years. I sent out invites with a location where we all met. When everyone arrived, I told them I had a surprise and this wasn’t where we would be eating. I then gave everyone the REAL invitation and once everyone saw the address for where we would be going tears filled the room. I rented our childhood home. All of our memories live here especially with our dad. It’s where each Kardashian child was born and made us who we are. Growing up, the home had the most ridiculous wallpaper and kitchen set! I remade all of our table settings, decor out of the same fabric and print as the wallpaper. We had lunch at the home as if it hadn’t changed and we cried the entire time. When we walked out to get our cars to drive there, I had another surprise! I had rented every car my parents ever owned. I had some waiting outside so we could drive them to the house and the rest were lined up in the driveway of the house exactly how my parents used to have them parked. I even remade the exact license plates. (Yes my mom had a 2 DIE 4 license plate!) We drove to the home in these cars and relived our childhood! This was the best day ever. I am so proud I was able to keep such a meaningful surprise a secret from my mom and sisters for weeks! This was the most special, nostalgic day of my life and we felt my dad’s presence enjoying this day with us! I kept it together and didn’t cry the entire lunch even though I cried during the entire planning process. But at the end I went into my old bathroom, closed the door and cried so hard.
Kim spared no details in making sure this was the nostalgic birthday she dreamed up for her mother/manager. Kim rented every car her parents ever owned, complete with Jenner's old personalized license plate that read "2 Die 4", and ensured the Beverly Hills home was restored back to the furnishings, table settings, and wallpaper it had when the family lived there. The small group of family and close friends enjoyed a lunch at their old residence and spent the afternoon driving the cars around their old Beverly Hills neighborhood. Kim said that reliving her childhood brought back special memories of her late father and that it "was the most special, nostalgic day of my life."
It was an emotional lunch for Kris and the family. Kim, who is known for going all out for her loved ones, hit a home run when she helped her mom remember her roots in her old Beverly Hills home - a genuine Keeping Up with the Kardashian's blast from the past. The family is already filming season 18 where fans are sure to see Kim's nostalgic throwback birthday surprise play out for themselves.
