West gave Kardashian the gift during their getaway last week to a private island, Billboard reported. The realistic hologram of Robert Kardashian Sr. “talked” for nearly three minutes, wishing Kardashian a happy birthday while adding that he was proud of her, the magazine reported.

Kim Kardashian posted a video on Instagram and Twitter of the hologram, calling it a “special surprise from heaven,” E! Online reported.

“I am so proud of the woman you’ve become, Kimberly, and all that you’ve accomplished,” the hologram said. “All of your hard work and all the businesses you’ve built are incredible. But most impressive, is your commitment to become a lawyer and carry on my legacy. It’s a long and a hard road, but it’s worth it, and I’m with you every step of the way.”

“It is so lifelike and we watched it over and over, filled with lots (of) tears and emotion,” Kim Kardashian wrote on Instagram. “I can’t even describe what this meant to me and my sisters, my brother, my mom and closest friends to experience together. Thank you so much Kanye for this memory that will last a lifetime.”

Robert Kardashian Sr., a defense attorney for O.J. Simpson during the former football star’s murder trial in 1995, died Sept. 30, 2003, in Los Angeles. He was 59.
