A push present (opens in new tab) is, well, exactly how it sounds—a congratulatory gift given to mothers before or after they welcome their new little ones into the world. The new practice—which typically involves purchasing jewelry—has gained a lot of popularity over the years, and celebrities have, of course, taken it a little overboard. Click through to see the most expensive presents celebrities have received for popping out a baby.
Jenner gave birth to Stormi Webster on February 1, and since then she has reportedly been gifted a very expensive ring (opens in new tab) from her baby daddy Travis Scott.
Kim Kardashian West
During her pregnancy, Kim hinted on her website that she wanted a Lorraine Schwartz diamond choker (opens in new tab). "I like the idea of a push present—after nine months of pregnancy it's a sweet and well-deserved thank you," she wrote. "This pregnancy, I would love a Lorraine Schwartz diamond choker like the ones I've worn before to the Art + Film Gala. Too much? LOL!" And Kanye delivered. After she gave birth to their son Saint, Kim was spotted wearing the choker.
After giving birth to her and John Legend's first child, Teigen took it upon herself to purchase her own practical push present—a perineal irrigation bottle (opens in new tab). Sure, not quite as glamorous as jewelry, but definitely necessary.
A month before she was due to give birth to Dream, Chyna bought her own push present (opens in new tab)—a $400,000 Rolls-Royce. She posted about it on Instagram with the caption, “A little gift to myself for working this hard all year! Can’t wait to bring my baby girl home!"
On her first night out since giving birth to her first child, Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé was spotted wearing an huge ring on her finger. The blue ring (opens in new tab), obviously an ode to her daughter—or Jay-Z’s favorite color—was reported to have cost $35,000.
Kourtney revealed that after giving birth to her and Scott Disick's second child, Penelope Scotland Disick (opens in new tab), he gave her a pair of diamond stud earrings (opens in new tab) that she'd had her eye on.
In May 2017, Pink and her husband Carey Hart welcomed their son Jameson into the world. Five months later, she posted an Instagram photo, thanking him for the unique gift. "Thanks @hartluck for the push present," she wrote on Instagram (opens in new tab). "I give you babies and you build me motorcycles. Some girls like diamonds, I like heavy metal and carbon-fiber and chrome."
Even the Duchess of Cambridge gets push presents. Right before she gave birth to Prince George (third in line for the crown) Prince William gifted her with a special, limited-editon teddy bear from Harrods (opens in new tab). The gift was two-fold—something for her and for the baby.
During the second round with Princess Charlotte in 2015, Prince William treated Kate to a custom pair of earrings featuring green tourmaline, green amethyst, and diamonds (opens in new tab), designed by Kate’s favorite jeweler, Kiki McDonough. The cost of the push present: $4,000.
Rather than accept her own push present from Ashton Kutcher, after the birth of their daughter, Kunis helped to create this motherhood ring (opens in new tab) with Italian designer Marina B. The yellow-gold rings were sold for $4,800 and all of the money went maternal health in Zambia.
Sarah Jessica Parker
The Sex and the City star gave birth to her son James Wilkie Broderick in 2002, and her husband Matthew Broderick gifted her with a $6,000 charm bracelet (opens in new tab).
Ben Affleck gave his then-wife a diamond ring after welcoming their first daughter, Violet, into the world in 2005. She revealed that she once accidentally dropped the very expensive piece of jewelry down the drain (opens in new tab), and “the plumber had to come and dismantle the thing from under the house." Lucky for Garner, he found it.
Kidman's husband Keith Urban presented her with a Cartier diamond-encrusted trinity ring (opens in new tab) after she gave birth to their first child, named Sunday.
Urban carried on the push present tradition into Kidman's second child. When Faith was born via surrogacy, he gave her a $120,000 custom-designed emerald and diamond cross (opens in new tab).
In 2011, the celebrity stylist welcomed her and Rodger Berman’s first son Skyler Morrison into the world. Her push present was a 10-karat cushion-cut ring, specially designed by Neil Lane (spotted on her ring finger, here). “It was their first baby and she’s been working so hard that Rodger wanted to do something very special. Rachel was thrilled and hasn’t taken it off since,” Lane told People (opens in new tab). The ring reportedly cost around $250,000 (opens in new tab).
Marc Anthony gifted Lopez with diamond earrings, worth $2.5 million (opens in new tab) after they welcomed twins Max and Emme. The twins just turned 10 this February, and Lopez shared a sweet Instagram post (opens in new tab), reminiscing about the day they were born.
In October 2012, Adele gave birth to he first baby, Angelo Adkins. Her boyfriend, Simon Konecki, picked out a gold Buddha necklace (opens in new tab) designed by Lady Marina Cowdray as her push present.
Before she gave birth, Alba picked out her own push present: a gold and diamond Franck Muller watch (opens in new tab) that cost her husband, Cash Warren (heh), $54,000. Even though she picked the present, Warren was still able to surprise her by engraving a sweet, personal message on it.

Eric Johnson gifted his then-fiancé a pair of Elahn Jewels moonstone earrings (opens in new tab) after welcoming her son, Ace Knute, on June 2013. The studs, which cost $4,500, had special meaning as moonstone is Ace’s birthstone.
Six weeks after welcoming their son Camden in August 2012, the reality TV star's husband, Jay Cutler surprised her with a little arm candy—an Hermès Birkin bag (opens in new tab). "I got a gray Birkin bag. I was really excited about it. [Jay] did a good job," she said about her push present.

Liev Schrieber gifted his wife with a diamond platinum locket (opens in new tab) after welcoming their son Alexander in 2007.
Helen Bonham Carter
One of the most unique push presents to be given was from Tim Burton to his wife after she gave birth to their daughter. The gift, or rather, gifts? Four pairs of biker boots.
Rather than surprising his wife with jewelry, Evan Ross also gave Simpson a purse. The 2015 Chanel Graffiti Messenger green cross-body bag was limited-edition. “He brought it out to the deck and gave it to her in front of her family and friends,” a source told People (opens in new tab). “She was so surprised. Her dad Joe loved it and gave Evan a pat on the back.”
Former Bachelor star Sean Lowe gave his wife a 2-carat rose gold ring. "We thought of creating something that would match her rose gold diamond wedding band–a beautiful, romantic, symbolic band to stack beside it to celebrate the baby," Lowe's jeweler Neil Lane told People (opens in new tab).
The Real Housewives of Orange County star was given a Bentley and a diamond bracelet (opens in new tab) by her husband Micah for the birth of their two daughters.
