There was no birthday blowout bash for Kim Kardashian West this year.
Her birthday came just weeks after she was held at gunpoint and robbed of nearly $11 million worth of jewelry on Oct. 3. The reality star wanted to remain out of the public eye and quietly celebrated her 36th birthday with her family.
“Kim had a quiet birthday celebration with Kanye, their kids, her sisters and Kris,” a source tells PEOPLE. “It was Kim’s choice to not have a big celebration. She seemed very happy with her decision.”
“She is still figuring out her life,” the insider adds. “She still has no plans for any work appearances, but her outlook on life seems more positive. She has calmed down a lot since the robbery.”
Though Kim stayed out of the spotlight on Friday, her family and husband took to their respective social media pages and shared heartfelt messages for the mother of two. Kanye also shared tear-jerking video footage of his wife as a young girl with the message, “Happy Birthday babe.”
