And it cost a cool $16k.

This year, Kanye got her another Birkin bag for her birthday. BUT NOT JUST ANY BIRKIN.

A special one customized by their 16-month-old daughter North.

“Kanye had a box, a purse, this Hermès purse, and I opened it and I thought it was so cool. It was all painted really cool and then there was my computer and it said, ‘Press Play,’ ” Kardashian told People. “I pressed play and my daughter was sitting outside painting the purse,”

Totally sweet normal couple stuff.

Or more of a monochromatic meditation.

“I thought it was an artist that painted the purse, some custom thing. I thought it was some new artist, and it was my daughter. It was amazing and I have it all on video.”
