kim kardashian kanye west getty Kim and Kanye debut first photo of Saint   who looks a lot like big sis, North

Kim Kardashian West had a big surprise for her social media followers Monday (Feb. 22) — she debuted the first photo of her 3-month-old son, Saint, on her app and website, in honor of her late father Robert Kardashian’s birthday. Robert died of cancer at the age of 59 in 2003, six years before his first grandchild was born.

“Today is my dad’s birthday. I know there’s nothing more in the world he would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren. So I wanted to share this pic of Saint with you all,” writes Kardashian West.

Previously the only shot “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” fans had seen of baby Saint was a sweet photo of his tiny fist holding sister North’s hand, where Kardashian West revealed that North called her little brother her “best friend.”

The resemblance is definitely strong in Saint — he looks a lot like North did at that age.

Kardashian also posted a separate message for her father, who would have been 72 on Monday.

“Happy Birthday dad! I can’t believe you would have been 72 today. So much has gone on in our lives since you’ve been gone, and I know you have been my guardian angel seeing everything unfold! I love you and miss you so much!”
