Lau renamed the famous diamond, which had been known as "Blue Moon," to "Blue Moon of Josephine" immediately after purchasing it, as a reference to his daughter.

And if you think that wasn't enough, Lau's $48.4 million purchase comes exactly one day after he dropped $28.5 million on a rare 16-carat pink diamond!

Lau immediately renamed that diamond, too — which was the largest in history to ever go up for auction — to "Sweet Josephine" in honor of, yep, his daughter!

Ch-ch-check out the actual moment the flawless stone was bought (below)!

Wow.

One thing is for certain here — we need to become besties with Josephine! LOLz!!
