It’s a push present. But in reverse. The one pushing – mum – is also the one who is gifting her very lucky husband with a luxe Lamborghini.
Why? As a ‘thank you in advance for taking care of bub postpartum’. But it’s not exactly what it seems.
Confinement and luxury cars
Malaysian cosmetic guru Anes Ayuni Osman, 19, is due to give birth to her first child this month. She has shared the journey with her fans on TikTok as she and her entrepreneur husband, Weldan Zulkefli, 20, prepare for the arrival of their first child.
Recently Anes made some serious waves with an emotional video of her surprising her husband with a Lamborghini worth a cool $280,000 AUD. Anes took her husband to the car dealership where he discovered his brand new set of dad wheels wrapped neatly in a big red bow. Thanks, wifey!
But why is dad getting a gift? He’s not the one with cankles or preparing to push an infant out of his body?
Where’s mums’ Lambo?
As Anes explains, her husband’s gift is to ensure he keeps up his end of the bargain postpartum – to take on the role of the main caregiver to both her and bub.
You see, after birth, she will immediately enter a 100-day confinement period, common for new mums in Asia.
The traditional practice sees women limit their movement after birth in order to reduce the risk of postpartum complications and help rebalance hormones.
Anes, who believes she may be having a c-section, is well aware that she needs time to rest and heal and will remain on bed rest for at least one month. No visitors. No cleaning. No cooking. No bending down to unload the dishwasher after your husband said he’s done it.
Just purely focusing on rest, recovery and her new baby. Sounds like the perfect post-partum situation!
But who will be in charge of all the rest? That’s dads’ job!
As Anes explains in video,
Thank you husband, no matter how big the value of this gift will not be able to reciprocate your kindness.
Apart from being thankful for his sacrifice, I am gifting this Lamborghini because I want him by my side throughout my confinement.
I’m expecting my husband to not only be with me all the time but he has to care for the baby day and night because there’s a huge possibility I will be having a Caesarean birth.
Mums out there will know how painful a C-section is, so I want more attention from my husband.”

Heck, if I could guarantee that my husband would wait on me hand and foot for an entire month post-birth, I’d give him a Lambo too!
Good luck to the couple on the impending birth and confinement. We’re sure there will be a lovely push present waiting for Anes after she gives birth too. After all, you can never have too many Lambos.
