To Spoil or not to Spoil? Kim Kardashian vs. Other Celebrity Parents

kanye-west-kim-kardashian-north-west-santa-barbaraKim Kardashian has claimed that her daughter North isn’t spoiled, how do other celebrity children weigh up in comparison?

Celeb land is full of spoiled children and the one celebrity I wasn’t expecting to dispute this was Kim Kardashian. I was knocked sideways when Kim claimed that her daughter, North, isn’t at all spoiled. Particularly since just two weeks ago, the reality TV star and partner of rapper, Kanye West, posted photos of designer baby clothes from Oscar de la Renta and Roberto Cavalli.

However, Kim has claimed that despite appearances, North doesn’t have a wardrobe that most 30 year old women would kill for, and that the eight month old often wears hand-me-downs from Penelope, the daughter of Kim’s sister, Kourtney. Kim explained that North “has actually not worn anything designer yet. Kids get dirty. She’ll spit up. She moves around so much. I saw this one cute dress that was $500 and I was like, ‘Absolutely not!’.”

I’m pleasantly surprised by Kim’s grounded and sensible approach to dressing her baby daughter. Although Kim did admit that even if she wanted to dress her baby in stylish clothes, North will have none of it: “I tried to put North in a faux-fur vest, but she hated it”.

Kim isn’t the only celebrity mother who doesn’t agree with dressing her baby in designer clothes. Singer Adele was recently seen nipping out to Kensington High Street in London in order to pick up some high street apparel for her son, Angelo. Adele stopped into Gap and H&M to grab some bits for her little boy, clearly recognizing that since children grow so quickly, it isn’t sensible to splash out on expensive clothes.

Some other celebrity parents don’t subscribe to Kim and Adele’s bargain baby ethos. Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy allegedly eats her meals from her $16,060 Swarovski studded high chair as well as whizzing around in her very own mini Bugatti. In her down time, Blue also apparently has the option to play with her $642,000 solid gold rocking horse. It’s just one of those things that ever kid needs.

Unsurprisingly, David and Victoria Beckham’s littlest one can already lay claim to an alleged $8,000 wardrobe, and has never been seen in the same outfit twice. She’d never be able to live down the shame.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ daughter, Suri Cruise has often been hailed as the best dressed celebrity child, already apparently owning a $17,630 Hermes handbag, $2,136 Dolce and Gabbana trench coat and an $800 Ferragamo bag. Nope, not jealous at all.

I never, ever thought I’d say this, but it looks like North West may actually grow up to be one of the most normal celebrity children.

    Issokay! When you have it..u spend it! Hopefully ‘the Wests’ keeps their ideology up!

  2. Splurging on children’s clothes… Knowing well that they won’t be kids forever, is just motherly common sense… Celebrity or not…

    I have absolutely no hard feelings ’bout rolling out the red carpets and pulling out all the stops in making my kids have the very best I can afford to give ’em. I only just hope these guys remember that very significant tiny detail called an educational trust fund. These kids needs this more than all these superficial stuffs that they’d eventually grow out of. They’d value this more and bless their parents for having made the smartest decision ever when they come of age. Wisdom is profitable to direct.
