But despite having taken time to celebrate the event the day before she left, West decided to make sure his reality TV star wife didn't feel lonely or underappreciated in her far flung destination.
A fan of grand gestures (he gifted his wife a wall of flowers for last year's Mother's Day!), West began his wife's Brazilian celebrations by filling her room with white roses — literally.
"I got to my room in Brazil and my amazing thoughtful husband had the sweetest note with a couple thousand roses covering my entire suite for Mothers Day!" excited wife Kardashian shared with fans via Instagram as she posted a snap of the buckets of roses filling her hotel suite. "I'm so sad I'm so far away on this day but happy we celebrated yesterday! I love you baby & North soooo much!!!"
But not happy with just one surprise, the Yeezus creator then made sure his and Nori's appreciation for the woman in their lives was crystal clear — as she sat down to dinner, and every time she ordered anything to eat!
"So I get to a restaurant in São Paulo & my husband had a string quartet waiting playing Sam Smith!!!!!" the incredulous mom-of-one wrote a few hours later, sharing another picture via Insagram. "Every single waiter who brought food said 'This is from Mr. West for the best mother in the world'! Seriously I have the best husband ever!!!!" she wrote.
