Kristin Cavallari may have started her career in reality TV, but the starlet has recently changed gears into family and fashion, thanks to the birth of now-6-week-old son Camden Jack and her shoe collection for Chinese Laundry.

It’s no surprise, then, that when picking a push present for his fiancée, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler went with something super-stylish.

“I got a gray [Hermès] Birkin bag,” Cavallari tells PEOPLE, flashing a grin. “I was really excited about it. [Jay] did a good job.”

Now that Cavallari has become a mom, she finds it remarkable how priorities change — and not just with her new family.

“I would love to do a nursing bra and tank top line,” she reveals, changing her tune from just weeks ago. “I can never find any cute ones!” For more from Cavallari, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now. Moms, tell us: Did you receive a push present from your partner?

Isn’t the baby a ‘Push Present’? This is ridiculous!!

All I hear is a bunch of jealousy coming from all these women who never received anything special from their husbands or boyfriends. As someone stated earlier “push presents” have been around FOREVER! I hear about it from my mom, who heard it from her mom, who probably heard it from HER mom. Calm down with all the negativity, her being excited about a nice present she received after bringing a beautiful many into the world does not mean she doesn’t love her child or think he is a miracle or a present. How many of you receive presents on your birthday??? How selfish and spoiled of all these women today who expect to get presents for just being born???? Or Christmas, or Valentine’s Day or Anniversaries? This was a momentous day for her and him and there is nothing wrong with saying you’ve been through so much and did such a good job, let me thank you for our beautiful gift. SO STOP WITH ALL THE JEALOUSY! That’s all it is, jealousy because you all have unthoughtful significant others or couldn’t afford it or are now mad that no one ever told you about a “push present.”

A “push present” is such an absurd idea. There are woman who struggle to concieve and when they finally do, the greatest gift is the precious child. Are we really awarding ourselves for giving birth? What nosense. As a mother of a child born gravely ill, I find this offensive. To have a healthy baby is the most remarkable gift of all.

The first time I heard this term was with Rachel Zoe’s baby. I think this is the most revolting thing I’ve ever heard of. Like your baby isn’t the most precious gift you will ever receive?!

Lol how did I guess what the push present was before (albeit hesitantly) clicking the story?

And the ultimate push present is your child…what could be better than a healthy baby?

I think gifting her the bag was sweet and harmless, yes, but if something like this became (or is) a trend, it’d make me cringe. Baby is enough of a gift for me!

Not that anyone who posted earlier will read this but…my husband left me when i was 5 months pregnant, i did it alone, i haf an emergency c-section and my baby was the only gift i needed…however my amazing family and friends showered me with post birth meant a lot to me, i didnt need them bc i had a beautiful baby who thankfully survived a traumatic birth with no lasting negative effects.
I think a lot of you are missing the point here…her fiance was showing his thanks to her for giving him the ultimate gift of all need to grow up and stop complaining about petty things in life. So what, he bought her a bag..big deal, get over it. I think it was very nice of him.
AND newsflash..all those flowers and ballons and little things you got after the birth of your babies..those are considered “push presents”!!!!!

sad to be american on

amen to that @Good Grief

Young people are so materialistic. More money than brains.
