On Monday morning, one of her sisters, fellow reality-TV star Kim Kardashian West, shared a photo of Kim's 2-month-old son Saint West on her website, and stated, "there's nothing more in the world [Robert] would have wanted than to meet his grandchildren."

Her dad, who worked as a defense attorney during O.J. Simpson's 1995 murder trial, passed away at age 59 after a battle with esophageal cancer in 2003.

The photo had collected about 546,000 likes as of early Tuesday afternoon.
