Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have pushed their marriage issues aside to celebrate the reality star's 40th birthday.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim has celebrated her big day on social media, with many of her fans and famous pals wishing her happy returns.

Whilst she simply reposted most of the messages, Kim took the time to the tweet penned by her husband Kanye, 43, in an attempt to shut down reports that they are struggling to save their marriage.

Kanye took to Twitter to post an image of him and Kim smooching in an empty stadium where he proposed to her back in 2013.

Following their engagement, the pair wed in a lavish ceremony just seven months later in Florence, Italy.

The couple have also gone on to welcome four children together; North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and one year old Psalm.

Alongside the image Kanye shared with his 30.9million Twitter followers, he wrote: "Been doing empty stadiums. Happy 40th birthday!!! I love you so much."

Kim retweeted the post to her own 67million followers, responding: "I love you so much," alongside a white love heart emoji.

It was reported last month that Kim was close to filing for divorce from her rapper husband following his social media outbursts earlier this year.

An insider told heat magazine at the time: "Kim is one step away from filing for divorce, but first she wants to sit down with Kanye and talk over the important issues, such as the kids and finances.

"He is doing everything he can to avoid that, so on the rare occasion he does see Kim, it's just for a brief dinner, and then he'll dash off as quickly as possible."

However, prior to this, a source told new magazine that Kim quit her show Keeping Up With The Kardashians in order to save her marriage after their trip to the Dominican Republic earlier this year.

"Kim was behind the decision and told the rest of the family she needed to bow out shortly after her make-or-break holiday with Kanye – telling them she made a vow to him to stop doing the show which he’s always hated as part of their new marriage pact," a source said.

"Everyone was in shock and while there was initially talk of the sisters and Kris carrying on without her, they all knew it would never work without the main star and the show wouldn't be the same without Kim.

"Kris was in a state of panic – begging and pleading with her to change her mind amid fears their empire could crumble without the show," the insider added.

"But Kim insisted it was time to put her marriage first as she admitted how many problems it created between her and Kanye.

"It's no secret Kanye's never felt comfortable with cameras following their lives and he's been trying to get Kim to stop since they met, but after things reached breaking point between them earlier this summer, Kim knew she had to make a choice following a final ultimatum from Kanye."
