The hype surrounding the birth of Beyonce and Jay-z's first child has definitely gone into overdrive ever since she announced her pregnancy.
She gave birth to a baby girl at an NYC hospital, Jan.7 and celebrities including Rihanna, Snooki and Beyonce's friend Russell Simmons have also confirmed the news.
According to Daily News, the expectant father had rented the entire fourth floor of Lenox Hill hospital for a staggering $1.3 million for the birth of their baby.
Beyonce and Jay-z are one of the richest celebrity couples in the industry. According to Forbes 2010 list, the pair topped the list of the highest-earning couple in entertainment, with almost double the wealth of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
According to reports, the million dollar pram for the newborn child is ready. The couple has got a diamond and crystal-encrusted pram designed by a Dubai-based designer for the child.
Reports suggest that the couple has paid approximately $50,000 for the exclusive buggy for their first child. Obviously, the couple was extremely excited and this is just a small present for their much-awaited baby.
Sources revealed this news soon after the singer announced her pregnancy at MTV VMAs in August last year.
Since the couple didn't know or didn't want to reveal the sex of their impending child, they had ordered for two prams - one in pink and the other in blue color.
Beyonce and Jay-Z are one of the most powerful couples in music industry. Their combined estimated worth goes into billions. It doesn't come as a surprise that they would want to place such an expensive order. The child will definitely be pampered beyond imagination, The Times of India cited a source as saying.
Beyonce doesn't want the media to get whiff of the purchase. Hence she's asked the designer not to even bring his assistants into the workshop, the source continued.
American R&B artist, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles, has an estimated net worth of $300 million, according to an earlier report by therichest.org.
The 30-year-old singer has also topped Forbes list of richest star under 30; most powerful and influential celebrity and the best paid female artiste in 2010.
In fact, the singer-cum-actress herself revealed that she has enough of wealth. I never imagined I would be so blessed. I just wanted to be financially stable, and it embarrasses me, and I don't feel comfortable talking or thinking about it. I'm not a flashy girl, and I don't flaunt it, Beyonce said long back in an interview in 2007.
