Who knew Kim Kardashian and Jaime King were such good buds? The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed via her website that her favorite gift for newborn son, Saint West, is from pal King.
“My friend Jaime King sent me the BEST baby gift!!! I had to share it with you guys because I just love it,” the now mom of two, 35, shared on Friday, Dec. 11. “It’s from Simone LeBlanc and the packaging is so cool. We received adorable presents by Fog Linen packed inside these wooden boxes and everything is in soft neutral tones. This was such a sweet gift that’s personal to Baby, Mommy and even Daddy!”
Kardashian welcomed Saint on Dec. 5.
The Simone LeBlanc “New Mom & Baby Box” gift set, which comes in a wooden keepsake box, retails for $300 and includes a cozy-looking blanket, booties, cardigan and cap set, and an alpaca bear for the baby. For the mom, the gift box includes a journal, votive candle, sea salt scrub, and coconut body butter.
The two became friends after King, who is also a mom of two, revealed her sympathy for Kardashian in 2013, when Kanye West’s wife was pregnant with their first child, North West. In an interview with Elle at the time, King, 36, said she cried for “five hours” after the Selfish author was ridiculed for her infamous floral ensemble at the 2013 Met Ball.
“She was with Kanye, but she wasn’t fully accepted by the fashion industry. Riccardo Tisci was very brave in dressing her. Anna Wintour had invited her to the Met Ball, which is a big deal and a big step up for her. But when she was pregnant [there], I remember going back in my hotel room and crying for like five hours because I kept seeing all these things come up online, all of these horrible pictures and GIFs,” King recalled. “I couldn’t stop crying because here was this beautiful glowing pregnant woman who is probably so excited to be attending the Met Ball for the first time with the man that she loved, and she had this beautiful dress made for her that was very daring and very gorgeous, and she has a beautiful growing child inside of her, and yet everybody bashed her and called her a whale or said she looked like a couch or drapes.”
Two years after the incident, in March 2015, King and Kardashian were spotted hanging out at Chateau Marmont.
