Brad Pitt

Does Brad Pitt deserve the father of the year award? The celebrity father purchased a Suzuki DRZ-125 motocross bike for his 11-year-old adopted son Maddox over the weekend.

Brad is known for his enthusiasm for motorcycles and it appears he's trying to get his adopted son with Angelina Jolie into them as well.

"Brad took him into the garage and there the bike was with a bow on it. Maddox was over the moon and couldn't wait to try it out. He was riding it around all day at the house, tearing up the lawn," a source close to the couple said.

Will Brad and Maddox be taking any cross-country trips on a motorcycle anytime soon? This isn't the most elaborate celeb birthday gift a kid could get. Here are some other big purchases celebrities have made for their children.

Angelina Jolie

Looks like both Angie and Brad have something in common besides their incredible good looks and talent: they both love splurging on their kids! In early January Angelina was spotted buying an entire new wardrobe for her daughter Zahara's seventh birthday.

In 2010 the celebrity couple gave their kids six Shetland ponies to ride around the French country side. Is it too late to be adopted into this family? We totally want in!

Mariah Carey

Mariah is one celeb who is known for her over the top diva ways and it's no surprise she has the same attitude when it comes to celebrating the birth of her twins, Monroe and Moroccan. The twins turned one this past April and in true diva fashion Mariah threw her babies a Parisian party.

The lavish party in the most romantic city in the world was held in a posh hotel complete with pink and blue balloons, champagne for the older guests, and custom-made French pastries. Talk about a birthday party! Can you imagine the sort of decadence that will go on when the kids get older?

David Beckham

When baby girl Harper turned one this year the Beckhams went all out in true Beckham style, of course. Like Mariah, instead of giving one extravagant gift the couple chose to have an incredibly extravagant party.

David and Victoria went all out with a pink themed party including hired pink rabbits, pony rides, a bouncy castle, and more. Celebs including Selma Blair and Nicole Richie even joined the birthday celebration.
