Kanye West has a long history of giving girlfriend Kim Kardashian beautiful jewelry. From the Cartier panther bracelet he got her for Valentine’s Day to the armful of bangles he got her just because, the man has some great (and expensive) taste. But apparently those were all just a warm-up for the main event. According to The Sun, Kanye shelled out £500,000 for a rare black and tiger-stripe diamond ring that he gave Kim as a push present after their daughter North West was born! That's just over $770,000!
For those of you lucky enough to not know that ridiculous expression, a “push present” is apparently a gift that men buy their partners to reward them for pushing a baby out of their hoo-ha.
We get the sentiment, kind of — having a baby is really hard work and men want to do something nice for the woman they love after she goes through childbirth. (Can we call is something else though? Because calling it a “push present” just makes it sound like a baby isn’t present enough, which is probably not the way it’s intended.)
Terrible name aside, we’re not surprised at all that Kanye would pick out something so lavish for Kim! He clearly loves picking out beautiful things for her, and having his baby is just a good excuse to continue cleaning out Cartier.
It sounds over-the-top, but remember, Kanye isn’t the only one who loves giving gifts! Kim just invited Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak to meet her baby just because Kanye is obsessed with technology and she thought he’d love to meet him! That’s as thoughtful as jewelry, any day.
