Oh that I were a Celebrity....

Push Presents Revealed (Gabe are you reading along?)




  • Rachel Zoe got a 10 carat Neil Lane diamond ring for pushing out her son Skylar Morrison
  • Tori Spelling got a $1500  Balenciaga Giant Arena Bag for having son LiaM
  • Sarah jessica Parker got a $6,000 charm bracelet after the birth of their son James Wilke.
  • Mariah Carey got a $12,000 necklace studded with diamonds and pink sapphires and engraved with her twins’ names, Moroccan and Monroe.
  • Jenniffer Garner got a diamond ring after the birth of her first daughter Violet. (which she consequently dropped down the blender...explain that to me please?)
  • Liev Schrieber gave Naomi a platinum and diamond locket when their son Alexander was born. 
  • Tom gave Katie an 18k Cartier gold bracelet after Suri was born
  • Jlo apparently got a $300,000 canary diamond ring AND a $2.5 million dollar pair of earrings after her twins Max and Emme were born. I hope she gets to keep them in the divorce! (the jewelry not the kids - I assume she will keep the children!)
  • Even though she paid another woman to PUSH out her second daughter, Nicole Kidman still got a 120k emerald and diamond cross from hubby Keith. 
  • Helena Bonham Carter - never one to stir up jealousy.... got 4 pairs of biker boots from her hubby after the birth of her daughter Nell. I really don't get it. The name Nell OR the boots. But then again I really dont get HER. See photo



So you see, asking for a teensy tiny measley little present like an Ipad really isnt THAT big of a deal! I asked Gabe what he thought an acceptable sum of money would be to spend on a push present. And after 20 seconds of confused silence I defined what "Push Present" meant....and he calmly replied with a shrug:
$75.00

So there you have it. Apparently my pelvic floor is worth less than a hundred bucks. 
TYPICAL.

(* I was actually pleasantly surprised at this amount. Its enough for a new pair of postpartum jeans! Ill take it!)

Seriously, Helena Bonham Carter completely mystifies me. And people.com just informed me that Jennifer Garner is pregnant with her third baby, maybe she'll be a tad more careful with whatever Ben presents her with this time!

At least you can legitimately expect/ask for/buy your own 'push present'. I have c-sections, so my dear doctor does ALL the work. Is there such a thing as an 'abdominal surgery present'??

you CRACK ME UP!!! And, I just asked Matt how much he would spend on a push present. Following the blank stare/subsequent explanation he replied with, "how about a BABY! Or maybe he pleasure of NOT BEING PREGNANT anymore!!" while snickering in my face- I am a lucky, lucky woman. $75.00 is practically a gold mine!
