This is 40.

Kim Kardashian turned a big number on Wednesday and we had to give the reality star a shout-out.

For Wayback Wednesday, we look at some of the many times Kardashian has graced us with her celeb presence over the years.

While Kardashian lives in Los Angeles, she has often said she feels like Miami is her second home.

The married mom of four is a regular visitor to the Magic City even way back in the day when she was dating football star Reggie Bush (sorry, Kanye). We’re talking throwback times, when she cameo-ed on her sisters’ 2010 show, “Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami,” which followed the goings-on at the family’s clothing store DASH in Miami Beach.

Her connections to Miami run deep: Two of her besties, Larsa Pippen and Jonathan Cheban, are locals. Among her fave spots are David Grutman owned restaurants such as and Komodo, as well as Myles Chefetz’s Prime 112.

No, Kim Kardashian didn’t break the Internet

Plus, the socialite likes to promote, pose and party. Our town was so made for that.

Kim Kardashian is in Miami — and she is actually wearing clothes (sort of).

We’ll never forget when she dressed up as Catwoman for a Halloween/bday bash in 2012 at LIV. Or “broke the Internet” two years later with the launch of her naked Paper magazine cover at Art Basel.

And though her milestone birthday is low key this year thanks to you-know-what, Kardashian has spent many a celebration here in pre-pandemic times.

Oh, look, it’s Kelly Rowland, Rob Kardashian, Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush on your average night at Prime 112.

See you soon, girl. We hope. Because that means life is back to normalish again.
