There’s no doubt that having a baby is a task worthy of a reward. If a kiss or nice bouquet of flowers won’t do, most mothers accept their new bundle of joy as their gift. But nowadays, many husbands are expected to buy expensive presents to thank their wives for dealing with pregnancy and “pushing” through labor.
These “push presents” are the latest gift-giving occasion, and just one more for men to add to their list — along with Valentine’s Day, birthdays, holidays and the all-important anniversary. Typically, these push presents arrive in the form of jewelry, and are very popular among celebrities.
So when it comes time for a push present for celeb stylist, reality star, and new mommy Rachel Zoe, what do you get the girl who has everything? After the couple welcomed their first son, Skyler Morrison Bermann in March 2011, the proud papa marked the occasion by giving his wife a huge piece of bling. Rachel’s hubby Rodger Bermann went big in the form of a 10 carat cushion-cut Neil Lane diamond ring.
“Rodger wanted to surprise Rachel with something romantic – and huge,” the jeweler told People magazine. “It was her first baby and she’s been working so hard that Rodger wanted to do something very special.” The ten carat stunner features a diamond covered split band on either side of the center stone, giving the ring tons of sparkle.
Zoe, a self-proclaimed accessories addict, has a vast collection of vintage and modern jewels. So what did Rachel think of her new extravagant diamond gift? According to Lane, the new mom was “thrilled and hasn’t taken it off since!”
Adorable baby Skyler weighed in at 6 pounds 12 ounces, which means the push present came out to more than a carat a pound! Surely Rachel loves her new bauble almost as much as her bundle of joy. After all, any fashionista knows that a ten carat diamond is the perfect accessory to wear while changing a poopy diaper…
