Drake doesn't have many problems in the romance department. In the past, the rapper has been linked with everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Bella Hadid and Rihanna — and, the hopelessly romantic Canadian believes in marriage. In fact, he's already been collecting gifts for his future wife, and we don't mean little trinkets. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Drake confessed that he's been buying up Hermès Birkin bags for "the woman I end up with."
That's a pretty steep investment! The legendary leather bags — inspired by French actress and singer Jane Birkin — are so in-demand that they often spurn wait lists. And, they can fetch up to hundreds of thousands of dollars a pop.
Drake's not the only celebrity transfixed by the classic totes. Kris Jenner has a whole closet devoted to her collection of the hotly coveted bags, and the space is illuminated with neon sign that says: Need Money for Birkin. (Related: we wonder where Drake's storing his budding collection while he waits for "the one" to come along.)
Southern Charm's impeccably dressed matriarch Patricia Altschul is also a fan of the cult-status accessory, and shelled out more than $220,000 for hers. And, accessorizing queen NeNe Leakes customized her Birkin with sassy, graffiti-style art that captures some of her favorite sayings.
Hmm, maybe a customized Will You Marry Me bag is in order for Drake? Call us cheesy, but it's not the worst way to propose. Then again, it might not be the best. While the French bags have legions of celebrity fans, not everyone's wild about them. So, reader: we have some concerns.
Will Drake's future Mrs. even like Birkin bags? What if Drake picks up a bag in Rouge Hermès leather, but his lady ends up being a big fan of Vermillion leather? Or a vegan? And, if he does settle down with someone like Rihanna, we're pretty certain she can afford her own fancy-schmancy accessories. (In fact, we know she can.)
So Drake, what we're really saying is: if the future Mrs. takes a pass on the bags, we'd be happy to take them off your hands. It's just the kind of people we are.
