The Difference Between Kim Kardashian & Chrissy Teigen is Finally Clear

Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian, two new moms who are great at social media, got gifts this week. You can tell a lot about a person by her shopping list, and both Teigen and Kardashian celebrated their little ones with push presents. Urban Dictionary defines “push present” as a “gift (usually of high quality) given to a mother by the father of a newborn baby.” (FYI: Women and other women can also have babies, if someone wants to alert UD.) But we, too, got a gift — a little insight into the psyches of these happy moms. How did each one choose to mark the occasion?

It only took a week of life with baby daughter Luna Simone before Chrissy Teigen did what many medium-to-super wealthy self-respecting mothers do in her position: turn to the push present. Teigen is an author, host, and supermodel. She bought herself some insane lingerie or the world’s best deep fryer, right? Wrong: She bought herself a perineal irrigation bottle. As SELF reports, new moms can’t use toilet paper after a vaginal birth, so they clean themselves off with one of these instead. As one of Teigen’s Twitter followers pointed out, they often give you a bottle for free a the hospital. For Luna’s mom, only the best, Amazon Prime- (one would hope) delivered $2.84 gift.

Chrissy loves to share the parts of herself that make her, well, an actual human, like stretch marks, hair extensions, and now vaginal and perineal tears. (It could and might even happen to you, but at least it’s also happened to Chrissy Teigen.) This breaks the mold on all matters push: not only did Chrissy buy it herself, it’s so low quality it’s something she actually needs. 

Meanwhile in Calabasas, Kim Kardashian takes the concept of push present to a whole new level. Her gift is supposedly from Kanye, although we all know he’s $53 million in the hole — so maybe she, too, decided to treat herself and not admit it.

Last year, she wrote an article on her website asking West for a gift. Her argument for a push present is simple and, I’ll be honest, entirely convincing. “We women go through an entire pregnancy carrying a baby,” she writes. “Of course it only makes sense that we get something amazing to show how amazing we are! LOL!”

“This pregnancy,” she continues, “I would love a Lorraine Schwartz diamond choker, like the ones I’ve worn before to the Art + Film Gala.” Now that Saint West is almost five months old, isn’t it time that Kim gets her $1 million choker? I totally agree.

Here it is on its way to her friend Dave Grutman’s wedding this weekend:

Two women I and the Internet love, two very different ways of publicly treating themselves.  So: Are you more of a Chrissy or a Kim?
