Kanye West pulled off the mother of all surprises for his wife this Mother's Day, when he shocked Kim Kardashian with an over-the-top gift that would put our Mother's Day bouquets to shame. (Kidding, of course — moms always love a blooming bouquet...) But did you really expect anything less from Kanye, the king of gift-giving?
Kardashian is no stranger to her husband's generous gifts and elaborate surprises. For the reality star's birthday last year, her hubby surprised her with a pregnancy party, complete with fake baby bumps for all of their guests and a preview screening of the then-unreleased Steve Jobs flick. And the year before that, West whisked his bride off to Hawaii for a spur of the moment vacation. And let's not forget his biggest surprise of all — all 15 carats of it! The rapper's proposal to the reality star was filled with half a dozen elaborate surprises, including a rented-out baseball stadium, a 15-carat diamond engagement ring, and the entire Kardashian clan. Kanye is truly a pro at presents, but even so, his Mother's Day gift to Kim still has us swooning.
Today the mother of two woke up to some sweet, sweet music — played by the string orchestra in her living room! For a Mother's Day treat, West arranged for a private concert by an all-female strings ensemble, which Kardashian showed off on her Snapchat earlier today. But that's not all! The sweetest surprise of all, People reports, is that couple's daughter, North West, chose the tunes the orchestra played herself, with songs including Frozen's "Let It Go," and "It's a Hard Knock Life" and "Tomorrow" from Annie. West also gifted his wife some classic Mother's Day blooms — a whole bench's worth, natch.
Leave it to Kanye to call in a wedding-worthy orchestra for some Sunday morning breakfast music. Now we're wondering what Kim will get her hubby for Father's Day in return... Ball's in your court, Kim!
