Khloé Kardashian posted footage of her birthday celebrations on June 27, as the new mom marked turning 34 with her famous family, friends, and her infant daughter. In one video shared on Instagram Stories, the reality star cuddles up to daughter True, whose father is NBA star Tristan Thompson. Look closely, and you’ll see sparkly studs in the baby’s ears.
