Appearing to be unbothered by his tax troubles, Jax flashed a pricey diamond ring around on Sunday revealing that it was Brittany's push present for delivering their adorable son. 

The dazzling stone is gorgeous, blue, and BIG. The square-cut diamond is symbolic because it represents their son's birthstone. The color is for their baby's gender. Surrounding the blue bling sits several smaller diamonds and a thin band that is, again, filled with shiny diamonds.

The stunning piece was created by Kyle Chan, who also designed Brittany's massive engagement ring.

"Push present to my wife from Cruz and I," Jax wrote on the photo. Brittany did not respond or share any of her own photos of the stunning rock. She was too busy flashing her adult diapers and being real about postpartum. 

The gorgeous sparkler could not have been cheap and must have sent the former Vanderpump Rules star back a few thousand. Considering he's currently unemployed, it may have not been the best idea but hey, nothing is too good for Brittany!
