Every parent wants to spoil their child, but one mom has reached a new level.
Kasey Akram is mum to Britain’s most pampered toddler, who bathes in milk and honey – and even sucks a £1,000 solid gold dummy. Mum Kasey, 32, says she loves to spoil her one-year-old son, Jareem.
The self-described full-time mother, who is currently on benefits, has spent thousands on her child and says she can’t stop.
Some of Jareem’s most extravagant possessions include a £750 Versace chain, a £925 diamond-encrusted bracelet and a £1,000 solid gold mannequin.
Kasey, from Sheffield, South Yorks, said: “As soon as I had my baby boy, my obsession shifted from my appearance to focusing on my son.
“He’s the most beautiful little boy in the world and I’ve argued with friends over how much I’ve spent on him.
“I buy my clothes from Vinted so I can buy him whatever he wants. I’ll wear charity shop clothes while he wears a £50 t-shirt and if given the choice I’d walk around naked for he can wear whatever he wants.
“Whatever he wants he gets and if I can’t afford it I call his dad and get the money. I’m not working at the moment, I’m doing it all on benefits social and with the help of my ex-partner.”
Kasey, who previously worked as a dancer and model, says she believed she had no interest in having a child.
However, after getting pregnant with Jareem in 2020, she quickly fell in love with the tot and knew she meant to treat him well.
From now on, Jareem is treated like a prince from morning to night. Her daily routine begins with Kasey waking up at 6 a.m. everyday to cook Jareem whatever hot breakfast he wants, which she then brings to him to eat in bed.
Then he takes a bath, uses milk and honey twice a week, followed by baby oil and baby massage while he watches Peppa Pig on the TV in his bedroom; that she moved in there from the living room.
Her care doesn’t end there as she also takes him for a haircut once a fortnight and insists that it be cut by the manager of the barber shop. Jareem also accompanies her to the nail salon where he gets a mini pedicure.
Mom Kasey also takes him to the jewelers, where only pure gold is good enough for Jareem. Mom Kasey is allergic to any metal other than gold and thinks her son Jareem is just as well he never checked.
Kasey is so keen to put Jareem before herself that when his bed broke, instead of replacing it, she spent £300 on a tractor bed for her son and slept with his mattress on the floor.
Along with giving him an all-organic diet, she refuses to let him drink tap water as she fears the estrogen level will cause him to develop breasts.
Kasey explained: “He still wakes up five times a night and apparently I’m too soft on him but if you had a kid in the middle of the pandemic you would be the same.
“He never drank tap water in his life and I fired my nanny because she gave him tap water.
“He has never seen a slice of white bread in his life and what I eat, he eats. He loves olives, he loves roasted peppers, everyone says he has such a refined palette. He has breakfast in bed every morning.”
Kasey also reflected on how Jareem might cope later in life, given his current close relationship with her. However. she doesn’t think she’s spoiling him: “I always ask him if he has a girlfriend when he’s older and she doesn’t like me if he kicks her out and he says yes – when he gets Marie finally, his wife is going to hate me.
“His dad always says when he’s 18 he’ll have a girlfriend and move out but I say no, we’ll have bunk beds when he’s too old to share a bed with me.”
The 32-year-old mum has prioritized Jareem at every stage of her parenthood, as she explained: “What Jareem wants, Jareem gets. The last pair of shoes I bought myself were Primark flip flops at ninety pence and on the same day I bought her some Gucci trainers.
“He likes flashy sneakers, but I would never let him walk around in horrible, tacky cheap sneakers. If I wear Vans, he wears Vans.”
Jareem’s rich habits have come at a cost, especially when he doesn’t realize how much his items can cost. Kasey described being upset when he put aside an expensive pacifier: “I spent £1,000 on a solid gold dummy and he threw it in the middle of town and lost it, I cried for three days.”
Even though mum Kasey is being criticized for her lavish lifestyle for her son Jareem, she insists it’s up to her: “If I want to spend money on my son, that’s my choice, I don’t care if I walk around in Primark shoes like as long as my prince has the best.”
