Kanye West is a big fan of Steve Jobs, so for Father’s Day, Kim Kardashian got him a pretty cool gift: an Apple mouse signed by the late chief executive.

West and Kardashian welcomed their first child last month shortly before Father’s Day, and on Monday, the rapper revealed one of the gifts he received by tweeting a photo.

Along with Jobs’ autographed mouse, West also received another signed by fellow Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who shared the story about signing the mouse with tech news blog Gizmodo.

“I signed this mouse right in front of Kanye, after chatting and joking with him for an hour or two, right in the hospital where Kim had given birth,” Wozniak said on Gizmodo, where he leaves comments from time to time. “I included a couple of other gifts. Kim went as far as she could to do the best things she could think of for Kanye and I’m impressed with her. I’m lucky to have the same with my wife Janet.”

West is known for being a big fan of Jobs and frequently compares himself to the Apple co-founder, who passed away in 2011.

“I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means,” he told the New York Times in June. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period.”
