How many prams does your average new mum need? A big one for walks and a fold-up umbrella stroller for the car, maybe? Not this mum, she has five…
The grand daughter of a Formula 1 billionaire has 5 prams. And she is only 4 weeks old.
At 4 weeks old, there are several things you need. Blankie to keep you warm. Milk to keep your tummy full. And a reliable nappy changer – later referred to as mum.
But five prams? That’s exactly what the grand daughter of Formula 1 billionaire Bernie Ecclestone has.
No I am not joking. And before I go into detail, can I just first say:
Who needs 5 prams? I can understand having 2 prams. One big comfy pram and one that folds up like an umbrella for when you are venturing out of your suburb. If you have more, you may have a hoarding problem. And if you have more by credit card purchasing choice, then maybe you are mistaking prams for shoes.
Tamara Ecclestone (daughter of the F1 billionaire) lives in London with her husband Jay Rutland. Four weeks ago, mum Tamara gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Sophia. And in those four weeks they seem to have purchased a total (so far) of 5 prams.
And no, they aren't the kind of prams that were on a special sale - 5 for the price of 3. These prams are like the Louboutins of prams.
Pram number 1 is a pink Silver Cross pram customised with Swarovski crystals (bedazzled pram, anyone?) and a silver nameplate that says "Sophia". When you spend $2,600 on a pram (pre-bedazzling), you want to make sure your name (or your baby's name) is on it in case it gets lost. Personally, I think a permanent marker is just as good.
Pram number 2 is a Bugaboo Buffalo and is the low-key (in other words no bedazzling), we-are-just-normal-parents pram. The price is around,$1,600, although with the add-on puncture-proof tyres, there might have been mark-up.
