As you're probably (more than) aware, Kim Kardashian is pregnant with her first baby and making all the preparations to bring the little pop culture prince or princess into the world. Most recently, she and baby daddy, Kanye West, did what most pregnant couples do at some point -- tackled their baby gift registry.
While it can be fun to imagine all the adorable little gifts and gadgets people will be gifting you, it also is usually a struggle to decide what to ask for. What do you really need? Are the items you want too expensive? Is there enough variety? Kim and Kanye, however, seemed to know exactly what they want for their little one, and their registry is flat-out unbelievable.
They're asking for ... nothing. Not one item for their baby. In fact, according to TMZ, Kim and Kanye are making it very clear they will refuse gifts. Instead they're asking for donations to Lurie Children's Hospital in Kanye's hometown of Chicago.
How cool is that?
When it comes to celebrity baby gifts, we've seen some pretty outrageous ones over the years. I don't think we have to think much further back than Blue Ivy's crystal bathtub or $600,000 golden rocking horse for an example. While it's certainly fine for people to shower children with gifts, it's also sad to see the excess when so many people have nothing.
So good for Kim and Kanye. It's certainly not like their baby is going to want for anything, and it's a great way to ensure that some other babies may want for a little less. It's a classy and gracious move, and while I don't say this very often, I hope that plenty of others do just what Kim Kardashian is doing.
