Blue Ivy has one of the wealthiest couples as her parents, so it should come as no surprise that they wasted no expense for her first birthday.
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s first child turned one-year-old on Jan. 7, and Radar Online reports that the couple had a $200,000 birthday party, which included a princess-themed celebration in New York.
The birthday cake reportedly cost over $2,000 and the pair splurged on pink and white roses, which cost nearly $100,000.
According to the Daily Mail, Blue Ivy also received a custom-made Barbie doll that has diamond gems and white gold and cost $80,000.
Earlier this month, it was also reported that Blue Ivy has her own nursery in the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, which Jay-Z partially owns. The entrepreneur rented out the luxurious suite at the cost of $1 million a year.
Blue Ivy is already living the good life, as Jay-Z told talk show host Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.
"At the end of the day, I just know I'll probably have the worst, most spoiled little kid ever."
The New York Post reported that the rapper spent $600,000 on a solid-gold, handmade horse from Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka, for Blue Ivy, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z allegedly spent $1.5 million on gifts for their daughter when she was first born.
Beyonce earned $35 million in 2011, Forbes reported, and she and her husband were the world’s highest paid couple last year, earning $78 million collectively.
Blue Ivy is not the only one being splurged on either.
The Daily Mail stated that she spent $1 million on a Mercedes van, which, it added, has a full bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet. She also bought Jay-Z a luxury plane for Father's Day, valued at $40 million, according to reports.
