Khloe Kardashian paid tribute to her ''love'' Tristan Thompson to mark his 26th birthday.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star had a sweet message for her beau as she celebrated his birthday.

Uploading a picture of the pair at Tristan's party earlier in the week, she wrote: ''To the happiest of birthdays my love! To the first of many more together! May God continue to bless you in all of your days! And may we forever look at one another like this.''

It comes after Khloe admitted she was ''in love'' with Tristan.

She said at the time: ''At this moment, a few days into 2017, I feel incredibly clear and probably the happiest I've been in years. It's such a great feeling that I have my happy back!

''It's from a genuine place and the most peaceful place I've been in for longer than I can even remember ... I think when you're in love you definitely feel happy and healthy too. I like that my relationship is very normal and doesn't need to be so publicised all the time.

''So much tough s**t has gone down in my family over the past year that I've removed myself from social media a bit more and focused on what's important in my life. That's not to say 2016 wasn't a good year for me, because it was, but there was a lot of real s**t that happened too. If I want to be in Ohio and do nothing, then that's what I'm going to do. Life is too short and too precious to not do what makes YOU feel the happiest. (sic)''
