Mom-to-be Lil Kim has shared her baby gift list with her fans and it’s as over the top as her plastic surgery.
39-year old rapper Lil Kim is pregnant with her first child and she was thoughtful enough to share her baby gift list with fans, ahead of her baby shower last weekend. The father of her child is rapper Mr. Papers.
Lil Kim celebrated her stork delivery by throwing a party in New York City and retweeting a message from her personal assistant, including where the expectant mother is registered and where fans could send gifts, as well as specific instructions on how to prevent double gifts.
The notice reads, “(Lil’ Kim) is registered at Tiffany’s, Petit Tresor, Bel Bambini, Buy Buy Baby and Babies R Us under Kimberly Jones aka Lil’ Kim or Kim Jones Event date May 10 please make sure they check off your gift from the registry after purchase.
According to TMZ, gift items on the registry include a $1,385 hamper and a cradle for $1,648, as well as an “affordable” $125 piggy bank and a $7,899 baby carriage.
While the notice may seem tacky, apparently Lil Kim was just responding to fans requests of what to get her. Lil Kim is said to already have everything she needs, but wanted to include her fans in her upcoming bliss.
It sounds like a crazy extravagance, but Lil Kim is known for her “more is more” philosophy—most notably when it comes to plastic surgery.
Although she has made some bold fashion choices to show off her growing baby bump, Lil Kim is most likely abstaining from plastic surgery for the duration of her pregnancy. Which is probably for the best, as the rapper has had enough work to last a lifetime.
Over the years, Lil Kim has become better known for her appearance than for her provocative lyrics. In fact, she has had so much work that she has even been compared to LaToya Jackson in recent years.
It is speculated that over the years Lil Kim has had a multitude of plastic surgery procedures, including several nose jobs as well as lip augmentation, cheek implants and probably other fillers like Juvederm and Restylane and breast augmentation.
Lil Kim at one point had such a drastic nose job that it looked like her nose had begun to collapse and she eventually had a revision process to reinforce her nose and get rid of the dent.
In addition to her dramatic plastic surgery procedures over the years, Lil Kim also relies on cosmetic means to change up her appearance. Lil Kim frequently sports major makeup to enhance or exaggerate her features as well as wigs, false nails and very revealing costumes. However, Lil Kim did seem to be settling down in recent years, apparently making her ready for motherhood.
Although Lil Kim is said to have everything she needs ahead of her baby’s arrival, UsWeekly reports that a majority of the items on her gift list remain unpurchased.
