We suppose it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that a mom known as "The Human Barbie" should gift her daughter with some plastic surgery of her own. But giving a 7-year-old a voucher for a boob job when she turns 16? Well, even the most Botox-ed of women would raise their eyebrows at that if they could.

Britain's Sarah Burge, 50, who calls herself a plastic surgery addict, gave her daughter Poppy a voucher for close to $10,000 for the girl to use on a future breast enhancement procedure, London's Daily Mail reports.

"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," she tells the newspaper. "If she develops naturally big boobs, she can have something else done with it."

According to the Daily Mail, Poppy also received a computer, a pink Swarovski crystal ring and necklace set and the promise of a $6,500 spa vacation.

"I wanted a new computer, a holiday and a voucher for surgery," Poppy tells the newspaper. "When I got it all, it was a dream come true. All my friends were jealous. I can't wait to be like Mummy with big boobs. They're pretty."

Last year, according to the Daily Mail, Burge copped to teaching her then 6-year-old to pole dance.

"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 tells the newspaper. "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 and famous like Cheryl Cole and Lady Gaga. I'm just supporting her and making her dreams come true."
