Kanye West might have been in Paris for most of Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy so far, but he made sure to show his caring side at her baby shower last weekend in Beverly Hills. Though the rapper has previously gifted his reality-star girlfriend with lavish designer items such as Cartier bracelets and Giuseppe Zanotti heels, his touching baby shower present carried no designer tags.
The 35-year-old rapper, who showed up at the end of the star-studded event, found out what books Kardashian’s father read to her as a child and bought a vintage collection for her to read to their daughter, due in July. Robert Kardashian, best known for being a major figure in the O.J. Simpson legal case, died of esophageal cancer in September 2003 at the age of 59.
The touching gift brought Kardashian and guests to tears, Extra reports. Not so much the other gift he gave her: an Hermes diaper bag.
Celebrity attendees included trainer Tracey Anderson, reality star NeNe Leakes, socialite Nicole Richie and television personalities Maria Menounos and Kelly Osbourne. The only males in attendance were Lamar Odom and Scott Disick, who are in relationships with Kim’s sisters Khloe and Kourtney, respectively.
The Grecian-themed brunch party kicked off around 11 a.m., with menu items including lox and bagels, pancakes and waffles, along with mimosas. Guests upon arrival were given handmade wildflower wreaths, according to E!, and the venue was decorated with white drapes and flowers. Reflecting the Grecian theme presumably inspired by the Kardashian clan's recent trip to Mykonos, Kim wore a long ivory dress, and sister Khloe wore a long, chic white dress. Naturally, all the festivities were filmed for upcoming episodes of reality-TV hit "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
After the event, Kardashian tweeted, "WOW an amazing baby shower! So much luv there Thank u @KrisJenner@KourtneyKardash @KhloeKardashian Shelli & Allison Azoff 4 the magical day. Truly such a special day. I honestly feel so blessed and filled with so much love!"
