Though Kanye West cryptically tweeted "June Eighteen" recently, June 8th is really what it's all about -- as West turns 36 today.

For the occasion, girlfriend and mother-to-be Kim Kardashian took to Instagram to publicly wish her man a happy birthday.

"Happy Birthday to my best friend, the [love] of my life, my soul!!!! I love you beyond words!" wrote the reality star, along with a six-photo collage of her and West.

Though last year Kim splurged on Kanye's birthday and bought him a $750,000 Lamborghini, this year her gift to him is priceless: Kim, 32, and her man are expecting their first child together, a baby girl, that should arrive either this month or the next.

Last weekend, on the season premiere of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," Kim celebrated her baby shower with a slew of famous friends, among them Maria Menounos, Kelly Osbourne, NeNe Leakes, Tracy Anderson, Kimberly Stewart, Nicole Richie, and of course Kourtney, Khloe, Kris and Kanye.
