Look familiar? Kanye West’s Julia Fox birthday present was an item his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, has received as a gift on numerous occasions over the years: a Baby Birkin.
Yes, that’s right. After a month of dating, Kanye gifted his new girlfriend Julia the luxury Hermès purse, which retails for over $20,000, in honor of her 32nd birthday. But that’s not all; according to TMZ, the Yeezy founder also gifted each of her friends a Baby Birkin of their own. The site also reports that Ye gifted the Uncut Gems actress some jewelry.

Kanye celebrated Julia’s special day by flying from California to New York to spend the night with her in Manhattan. “Ye flew into New York City for her birthday and then is flying back to LA to finish his new album [‘Donda 2’],” a source close to the couple told Page Six on February 3, 2022. According to the site, the pair joined Julia’s friends at Lucien, one of her favorite spots in the city. “They arrived together, looking very couple-y,” an insider shared. “He was all smiles. Her friends were also there. It was a big group.”
Julia’s birthday celebration came just hours after she shut down claims that she’s trying to “channel” Kanye’s estranged wife. In a since-deleted Instagram post, the actress denied that a recent outfit choice—a blue breastplate that retails for $300—was inspired by the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. “FYI I wore this on Halloween 2021 and I was supposed to be a slutty Smurf. I forgot to post it,” she wrote, screenshotting the initial claim made by Page Six.
While Julia may not be actively attempting to copy the SKIMS founder, that doesn’t mean her boyfriend Kanye isn’t already trying to style her in a similar fashion. Just as Ye gave Julia her birthday Birkin, the rapper has gifted his estranged wife with the same style of purse in the past.
In fact, in 2020, Kim proudly wore a hand-painted Birkin that Kanye gifted to her several years prior for Christmas. The Birkin in question was customized and hand-painted by artist George Condo. “#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy,” Kim captioned an Instagram post with the bag at the time.
Now, it looks as though Julia is joining in on the Birkin fun. Who knows—maybe she’ll get a handpainted edition from Ye soon enough.
