Oh my God, Kim K.’s shower invite. That is just cute.
So as Kim K.’s shower invite hits the web, it’s bound to get the inevitable Kardashian hater treatment. And to be fair, the Kardashian sisters can be a bit of a pain in the ass.
But TMZ got a sneak peek at Kim K.’s shower invite … and it’s freaking precious. Okay, most of us can’t afford a dedicated jewelry box to send out a baby shower invitation.
And even if we could, it wouldn’t play a special song just for us. And even if it did, it wouldn’t be one that our baby daddy penned as an ode to his own mama.
Kanye West’s “Hey Mama” is an emotionally laden song for many reasons — not the least of which is Donda West’s fairly recent and untimely death as the result of a surgery.
Even before Donda died and moms all over felt so, so bad for Kanye, “Hey Mama” was a really sweet and moving song. And as a Kanye fan and a mom, I haven’t been able to listen to it since the rapper broke down trying to perform it for the first time after he lost his own mom — to whom he was famously close, devoted and reverent.
So that Kim K.’s shower invite features the tinkly version of Kanye’s “Hey Mama,” that’s just … aww. It’s so sweet.
TMZ dishes on the June 2 event, hosted by the Kardashian clan to celebrate the new “Kimye” baby, and the site says:
“Not only is the invite playing the baby daddy’s tune, but the ballerina bears a striking resemblance to Kim herself — just in case anyone forgets who this party is REALLY celebrating … According to the invites, Kris Jenner, Shelli Azoff (wife of uber-manager Irving Azoff), Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are hosting the party. Recommended attire … garden chic. We think that’s rich people speak for casual.”
(Let’s just hope Kim wears flats to the big event.)
Though it’s not the Kim K.’s shower invite remix, the video below is an approximation of a “Hey Mama” instrumental. Now, if you’ll excuse me … I have to go call my mom.
