The bag is the Mini Pochette that is available in retail stores for $880. “The Mini Pochette Accessoires carries a touch of timeless chic in this two-tone edition, crafted from Monogram Empreinte leather with an embossed contrasting Monogram Medium motif.

Many fans found the gift sentimental, sensible, and sweet
While many VPR fans tend to slam Kent on Reddit, many really loved that she got her daughter something timeless and special for her first birthday. Of course, Ocean won’t carry the little bag around until she’s old, but many thought the sweet gift was good.
“Okay, that’s really cute. I hate myself for standing up for this [Lala] but I don’t see anything wrong here. All I see is a beautiful little baby doll with a beautiful little handbag that will never go out of style. I am so jealous because if I could afford it I would love to have this handbag. ocean is so beautiful too” commented one Redditor in a thread about the gift.
“I actually understand that I’m obsessed with bags and I’m not going to lie, I would probably do the same. I still have a bag my dad gave me 20 years ago and use it regularly.” read another comment.
“As much as I hate it [Lala], I can kind of understand that. This bag is really cute and will never be out of date or out of season. I have a couple of my mom’s handbags that are very special to me, so I can use them to reach out to where she’s from.” a third wrote.

Fans were divided over Ocean’s 1st birthday party
It seems most fans thought Kent’s gift to her daughter was acceptable, but another Reddit thread had people tearing apart Kent’s decision to throw such a lavish birthday party for her little girl.
Kent went for a full ocean theme, choosing pastel colors for a soft and airy feel. The outdoor soiree was complete with balloons, pillows, a ball pit and a bouncy castle. Kent also had tailored shirts with Ocean’s face on them and groceries like biscuits with her name on them. Ocean wore a mermaid outfit and later changed into a shirt with her face on it.
“This kid won’t even remember it. This party was for the adults.” commented one Redditor in a thread about the party.
“If you name your daughter Ocean, please don’t use enough plastic to destroy one.” added another person.
“She spent more on a 1 year old still going through childhood amnesia than we spent on our entire wedding lol.” wrote a third social media user.
