Khloe Kardashian’s daughter True Thompson may only be 3 months old, but she’s already accessorizing like a fashionista. A recent video Khloe posted to her Snapchat showed True’s pierced ears, which featured some gorgeous baby diamond studs.

The sweet video showed True looking into the camera before yawning, while also wearing a Snapchat filter flower crown with her baby diamond studs. The latter part of the clip also features new mother Khloe saying to her baby in a sing-song voice, “the song is over, new song!”

Khloe’s decision to pierce True’s ears keeps in step with the rest of her family, many of whom  also pierced their children’s ears at a young age. Khloe’s sister Kim pierced her daughter North’s ears around her first birthday, while Khloe’s sister Kylie had pierced her daughter Stormi’s ears by age 5 months.

When Khloe revealed her baby’s pierced ears on her Snapchat, it sparked some debate on social media, just as her nieces’ pierced ears did. The topic of when to pierce a child’s ears can sometimes be controversial, as perceptions around piercing a baby’s ears are often very different across cultures. However, Khloe has been quick to fight back against her critics.

Khloe said in a recent blog post on her app that new moms such as herself get a lot of unwelcome feedback. The always outspoken Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wrote a post called “10 Things To Never Say To A New Mom,” which included the advice that people should should never ask a new mom what kind of birth they had or whether they are breastfeeding their baby.

Khloe wrote on the subject, “This is such a personal issue. You never know the private struggles someone could be going through and how terrible it may be making them feel.” She also opened up about dealing with criticism, saying, “Mommy shaming is real!”

True is Khloe’s first child, but she may not be her last. Having three children seems to be the standard among her sisters, as both Kim and Kourtney have three children. Khloe commented on an Instagram posted by her sister Kim, writing, “So I don’t get what’s happening here— after three kids is there a secret rule that moms get hotter? You and Kourt are really making me think about the three kid rule.”

However many children Khloe ends up having, we can only hope they’ll all be as stylish as little True.
