Beyoncé and Jay-Z have reportedly welcomed their baby into the world in a blaze of bling. The celebrity couple have splashed out on a mind-boggling array of gifts for America’s newest celebrity princess.
Little baby Blue Ivy Carter was born in a top New York hospital last Saturday night. We’ve all heard about celebs booking out a whole floor of a hotel, but I think this might just be the first time that a whole floor of a hospital has been taken over. The indulgent celeb couple caused some inconvenience to other patients by taking over the entire fourth floor of Lennox Hill Hospital: a rather swanky facility in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Sounds like B and J were dead set on having their firstborn make a real VIP entrance to the world.
And the extravagance hasn’t stopped there. B and J seem to be very keen to introduce little Blue to the finer things in life. At only 3 days old there is speculation that the minted couple have already spent over $1 million on their little princess. Their incredibly luxurious shopping list includes:
- A high chair studded with Swarovski crystals worth $15,000
- A $30,000 magical windmill playhouse
- A $22,000 Fantasy Posh Tots carriage
- Diamond studded rattles made from gold and platinum
- Dummies from Tiffany and Co
- But the pick of the bunch has to be… a solid gold rocking horse worth an incredible $600,000
Yep, you read that right: rocking horse, solid gold, $600,000. I mean WTF? Are they mental? For a second, let’s just put aside the insanity of spending $600,000 on a kids’ rocking horse; it must be bloody cold and bloody hard. I can just imagine baby Blue wailing her frozen little butt off after cracking her skull on an incredibly expensive and beautifully polished horse’s backside.
So, just to make sure the little one is bleeding in a familiar environment, they’ve spent a whopping £350,000 kitting out identical super-posh nurseries in each of their three luxury homes.
All of this decadence makes me think B & J have decided that they are going to raise the world’s biggest diva. Picture the scene as the little tot pulls out her diamond encrusted dummy to string together her first full sentence, ‘I will not use my solid gold potty until daddy buys me a real live unicorn!’
