It’s been a rocky week for Khloe Kardashian, but she had her sisters by her side when she gave birth to her first daughter Thursday.

The reality star’s personal life hit a rough patch this week as news broke that her NBA player boyfriend Tristan Thompson has apparently been filmed cheating on her at various points throughout their one-year relationship. Twenty-four hours later, the first-time mother went into labor in Cleveland (where Thompson’s team plays), and her sisters apparently flew in to be by her side and show their support.

Friday morning, Kim tweeted that the baby is “so beautiful,” adding that Khloe is “so strong” and that she made childbirth “look… easy.”

What’s more, Kim apparently returned the favor of holding her sister’s leg while she pushed:

Kardashian still hasn’t commented publicly on her relationship with Thompson, but he was present at the birth (though multiple sources are reporting she plans to move back to L.A. as soon as it’s healthy for the baby).
