"Human Barbie" Sarah Burge Gifts Boob Job to 7-year-old Daughter

In the category of "you can't make this stuff up," a recent story has hit the news regarding a mom who gifted a boob job - TO HER 7-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER!

Move over Octomom and Botox mom, this lady is vying for the next "Mother of the Year" award.  As reported by such outlets as NY Daily News and the Daily Mail, British mom Sarah Burge recently bought her young daughter a gift certificate for a breast augmentation.  Mind you, the $9850 voucher is only good AFTER she turns 16 (UK's legal age for surgery).  Still, the gift is shock-worthy.  Even more shocking is that her daughter, Poppy, actually asked for this as her birthday present.  Perhaps she was slightly influenced by her party planner/self-proclaimed plastic surgery addict mom?

"Poppy begged me for a boob job, so I gave her the voucher so she can have it after she's 16, when it's legal, " said the Ms. Burge, who is also an "erotic novelist."

"I can't wait to be like Mummy with big boobs," says young Poppy.  "They're pretty."

Her mom goes on to say, "'If she develops naturally big boobs, she can have something else done with it."  Well, at least we know her coupon is transferable.                         

The coupon was part of an almost $20,000 "exotic pamper party" Ms. Burge, a.k.a. "The Human Barbie," had organized for her daughter's birthday.  Really, we are not making this up.  She made headlines before as she gave pole dancing lessons to her daughter at age six.  

Ms. Burge, who has spent over $800,000 on plastic surgery for herself, completely defends her choices as being a loving and supportive mother. 

"Some people think it's controversial and I get angry when strangers say I'm a bad mother because I don't think there's any harm in giving her this gift," she said. 

"Poppy is a normal kid who is good at sports and loves playing outside. Girls don't want Snow White and Cinderella any more.  They want to be WAGs [wives and girlfriends of soccer players] and famous like [UK singer] Cheryl Cole and Lady Gaga. I'm just supporting her and making her dreams come true."

What do you think?  We have covered the subject of young breast augmentation before, but this young?  According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 47.4% of last year's implants for girls 18 and under were "Purely cosmetic bilateral breast augmentation."   Could this be trending even younger soon?

Parents, please weigh in.
