Kendall Jenner‘s 21st birthday isn’t until Thursday, but Gigi Hadid kicked things off a little early this year, taking to Instagram Wednesday to share a sweet shoutout.

Happiest Birthday weekend my Ken,” she captioned a black-and-white photo booth picture of the two women grinning at one another.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and Hadid, 21, have long been close and are scheduled to walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show later this month. The show will be filmed in Paris on Nov. 30 before airing on CBS Dec. 5. Both supermodels made their debut on the iconic catwalk last year.

Jenner’s upcoming return to Paris will mark the first time a member of the Kardashian-Jenner family has gone back to the city since Jenner’s sister Kim Kardashian West, 36, was robbed at gunpoint there Oct. 3.

Though for the most part, the famous family has gradually returned to their busy schedules, yet Kardashian West has maintained an extremely low profile since the incident where masked men stole millions of dollars worth of jewelry from her at the No Address Hotel during Paris Fashion Week.

“The only ‘positive’ thing about the robbery is that Kim changed pace,” a source told PEOPLE last week. “Instead of working nonstop, her life has slowed down significantly. She seems happy about this.”

Another source told PEOPLE the star is “definitely acting like a new Kim.”

“She wears both minimal make-up and jewelry,” said the insider. “The new Kim seems less flashy. It’s like she doesn’t need that now to be happy.”

Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on E!
