Younes Bendjima has an obvious reason to be super happy. Kourtney Kardashian surprised her boyfriend Bendjima, 25, on his birthday.
The couple who held hands on the red carpet at the Voices in Displacement by the Syrian American Society event in Los Angeles on Friday, May 4, got away on a private plane for a special trip. And Kourtney had it all arranged.
“Oh, s— she got me on my way to idknow where,”
Bendjima wrote on his Instagram Story, adding that he would turn 25 at midnight.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star had her boyfriend's birthday celebrated with balloons and a cake, which was decorated with a picture of Bendjima as a young boy.
Kourtney didn't reveal where the pair was headed to, instead, simultaneously posted a number of pictures enjoying their time together in Egypt. She also went on to post multiple photos of the pair enjoying the Christmas holiday together and snuggling up together in a variety of locations.
Kourtney who shares three kids with former beau Scott Disick spilled the beans on her frequent trip with Bendjima. During a January episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she revealed that getting out of the town was the "easiest way" to keep her relationship healthy.
“I have realized in life that I need the balance,” she said. “It is hard to balance being in a relationship, work and my children. I just think that it’s really important for me to be there for them, and even though I want to go away and travel and do things for myself, it’s hard to find the balance of allowing myself to do that and not feel guilty.”
“I’ve definitely learned from my past relationship, where I really wouldn’t travel without the kids and I think it is important to take time — especially because my relationship is important to me and those worlds aren’t colliding right now — just making sure that I make time for both,” she continued. “I think going on a trip once in a while reminds me the importance of being present and in the moment when I’m at home, and I think it makes me the best mom that I can be.”
