It is Kourtney Mary Kardashian’s 40th birthday, and it’s time to celebrate.

It’s hard to believe that the reality star is 40 years old – seriously, did she get the address of the fountain of youth from Jennifer Lopez? – but today marks that milestone.

And in honour of Kourt’s big day, we’re acknowledging the fact that she is by far the best Kardashian.

Sure, Kylie is a billionaire. Yes, Kim is slaying her law exams and keeping us all entertained with her sink saga. But the eldest Kardashian is the real MVP.

And in honour of her big 4-0, we have rounded up all the times she proved she’s not only the original Kardashian daughter, but the greatest. Bow down.

Her truly excellent putdowns

Dedicated viewers of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will know that Kourtney is a master when it comes to deadpan delivery of clapbacks and putdowns, usually directed at her siblings.

Her one-liners have become legendary in the history of KUWTK – for example, there’s the time she told mother Kris that her near-topless pool photo shoot was ‘so embarrassing for your life and your soul’…

There’s the time she couldn’t help but mock Kim’s ‘ugly’ crying face…

And then of course, there’s the iconic moment Kim was crying over losing her diamond earring in the ocean – to which Kourtney replied: ‘Kim, there’s people that are dying.’

Kourtney always has her sisters’ backs

She may be able to ruin their days with a pithy remark, but nobody else is allowed to do that.

Kourtney is always there to support her sisters when they’re going through rough patches – like when Khloe was getting a divorce from Lamar Odom, and Kourt wore a ‘Khloe’s my fave t-shirt’.

The best example, however, is when she accompanied Kim on The David Letterman Show, and was going through her divorce from second husband Kris Humphries.

While David mocked Kim for being pregnant with Kanye West’s baby while she hadn’t ‘wrapped up’ her first marriage, Kim explained to David: ‘He’s suing me for an annulment based on the fact that I frauded him into marrying him for publicity.’

And, amazingly, Kourtney tacked on: ‘But I think if she was gonna do it for publicity, she’d pick someone that people knew.’


Kourtney is bossing co-parenting with Scott Disick

It must be difficult co-parenting with your ex after a nine-year relationship, but Kourt manages it.

She and Scott are great parents to their three children Mason, 9, Penelope, 6, and Reign, 4, and they poke fun at their situation all the time on social media – for example, Kourtney merging a thirst trap pic with a snap of Scott spending time with Penelope.

And after initially having a frosty relationship with Scott’s girlfriend Sofia Richie, things seem to be on the up.

When asked on Watch What Happens Live what her reaction would be if her ex proposed to the 20-year-old, Kourtney said: ‘Congratulations’, while Kim added: ‘We vacation together, it’s all good.’

She knows how to party

The Kardashians aren’t big drinkers, but Kourtney knows how to let loose, as evidenced by her 38th birthday party in Mexico.

The mum-of-three went wild on the girls’ trip, and apparently vommed in her bed before sleeping in it.

Kim live-tweeted at the time: ‘‘So I’m gonna give u guys a play by play of the trip so far… @kourtneykardash threw up in her bed 4 times and slept in it. @sarahrhoward tweaked her neck twerking (I will snap chat videos soon).

‘@jenatkinhair spiked my Oreo shake to try to get me to not eat it because she’s fat shaming me. Nicole Reda had a 10 min black out & tried to fight @steph_shep. @BrittGastineau skinny dipped solo and then disappeared for the two days.

‘@larsapippen tried to give me a “special” brownie and I threatened to sue her & the chef. @HrushAchemyan gives free twerk lessons 247. @jOYCEBONELLi put nipple clamps on @ForeverMalika. Oh and @kourtneykardash won’t stop doing naked cart wheels.

‘The Calabasas mom crew (Kourt’s bffs) are LIT!!!! They won’t stop taking @HrushAchemyan’s twerk class. #MilfsGoneWild.’

She is always feeling herself

All of the Kardashian girls are undeniably beautiful, but nobody has us screaming ‘yaaaaas’ more than Kourt.

The mother-of-three has spent the last year of her 30s posing naked to promote her new website Poosh and rocking bikinis at any given chance, even if that means wearing a two-piece in the snow.

Kourtney is just getting better with age, and we salute her.

Here’s to another 40 years of slaying the game and delivering sick burns.
