North West is sure sitting pretty. Not only are her parents a Kardashian and a Kanye – neither exactly known for being restrained consumers – but she’s got family friends like Jay-Z and Beyonce to spoil her too.

Jay and Bey spent thousands on baby gifts for little North, a source close to the couple told the Sun. Gifts reportedly included personalized Christian Dior baby booties and an engraved sterling silver Elsa Peretti Padova baby set from Tiffany’s, according to the Sun.

Apparently they brought their own daughter Blue Ivy over to meet North, as Blue is “old enough now to be really interested in babies.” And, presumably, in plotting world domination with her fellow princess of pop.

There is an actual sane reasoning behind Kanye West and Kim Kardashian naming their daughter North West.

A report from TMZ says that Kim and Kanye believe North is “their highest point together as a couple… the pinnacle of the relationship… and they consider her their ‘North Star.’”

That is adorable. But didn’t they factor West’s last name into this decision? That she is going to sound like a direction for her entire life? Where is the explanation for that?
