Earlier this week we learned that the birth of Beyoncé and Jay-Z‘s firstborn child, Blue Ivy, was surrounded by controversy after reports surfaced that B-Jay‘s overzealous security detail at the hospital kept other patients at the hospital away from their newborn children born around the same time. Earlier today, PITNB writer Melissa blogged about the fact that in the wake of those allegations, an investigation has been launched at Lenox Hill Hospital. BUT … what about the pimped out birthing suite that B-Jay paid a reported $1+ million for? Well, TMZ brings us the first photos of the actual swankily remodeled suite where Blue Ivy was born … check ‘em out below.
Lenox Hill Hospital constructed a suite for VIPs which looks like a Four Seasons penthouse … and the room was christened Saturday when Beyonce gave birth. TMZ has obtained photos of the room where Blue Ivy came into this world, and it’s baller. There are 4 flat screen TV’s, state of the art electronics, a kitchenette, nice art, mahogany walls and plush furnishings. And take a look at the bed where Jay Z got some shut eye! Sources connected with the hospital tell TMZ … the suite was not constructed specifically for Beyonce, but it was always intended that Beyonce would be the first patient to use it.
Um, yes … while the room is nice (prolly much nicer than most birthing suites in many hospitals around the country/world), I don’t think it looks particularly “baller”. It’s big and roomy, so that’s nice … but I’m not sure I see $1 million dollars worth of luxury in these photos. The furniture looks nice … but not posh. I dunno … maybe the rumors of how much Bey and Jay spent are really incorrect … tho, I guess part of that money went toward the overzealous security staff as well, so … In any event, this is the famed room where the firstborn B-Jay baby was born! Is it everything YOU dreamed it would be?
