No expense was spared when it came to supplying Blue Ivy Carter’s life with the best of the best. Before the bundle of joy was even born, Jay Z and Beyoncé reportedly shelled out $1.3 million to rent a whole floor at New York City’s Lenox Hill Hospital (though a rep for the hospital denied the price tag). Moreover, Blue Ivy’s crib alone cost a whopping $20,000. That’s even more than a ticket to the Renaissance tour!
One of the steepest price tags attached to Blue Ivy’s baby presents was a rocking horse made entirely out of gold for $600,000.The gilded stallion was handcrafted by a Japanese luxury jeweler named Ginza Tanaka. Only the best for Blue Ivy, after all. To celebrate the joyous birth, the couple’s wide breadth of friends and family were also sending extravagant gifts to the newborn. Talk about a baby shower!
The luxurious gifts definitely didn’t stop there. One year later on her first birthday, Blue Ivy received a diamond-encrusted Barbie doll that was valued at $80,000. And this is just the stuff that’s been reported on!
