Kanye West Gifts Kim Kardashian With a Hologram of Her Late Father for Her Birthday

Kim Kardashian got to see her father again--even if it was virtually.

During the star's 40th birthday getaway to a private island, her husband Kanye West surprised her with a 3D hologram of Robert Kardashian Sr. The incredibly realistic-looking hologram talked for nearly three minutes, wishing Kim a happy birthday and gushing over how proud he is of her.

"I am so proud of the woman you've become, Kimberly, and all that you've accomplished," the hologram says. "All of your hard work and all the businesses you've built are incredible. But most impressive, is your commitment to become a lawyer and carry on my legacy. It's a long and a hard road, but it's worth it, and I'm with you every step of the way."

Robert Kardashian died in 2003, at age 59, of esophageal cancer.

Kanye created the hologram by spending a lot of time with old video and audio of Robert, and AI was used to finish off the project, according to TMZ.

Kim shared the emotional video of her dad talking on Twitter, writing, "I can’t even describe what this meant to me and my sisters, my brother, my mom and closest friends to experience together. Thank you so much Kanye for this memory that will last a lifetime Here’s a more close up view to see the incredible detail."
