Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter North West celebrated her first birthday with a blowout "Kidchella" party this past weekend, but another milestone took place behind closed doors, a source tells Us.

The famous cutie had her ears pierced in early June, just a week-and-a-half before her first birthday. An insider tells Us Weekly that Kardashian, 33, wanted the piercing to coincide with her daughter's special day. 

Rather than taking the tot to a salon or even a local mall stand, Kardashian had the procedure done in her home, the source adds. 

Nori debuted a pair of diamond studs in her pint-sized ears at her music festival-themed birthday party. The sparkling earrings accessorized her outfit, which featured a fringed dress, floral crown, and gladiator sandals. 

While the early ear piercing raised some eyebrows, North is far from the first celebrity child to rock a pair of earrings. 

In July 2013, Gisele Bundchen shared a photo of her then-8-month-old daughter with pierced ears. Actress Majandra Delfino pierced her baby girl's ears before she turned two, while Angelina Jolie reportedly had her daughters Shiloh and Zahara get their ears done at the ages of 5 and 6.
