Blue Ivy’s Infant Gifts Total $1.5 Million

As Lennox Hill Hospital now probes whether baby Carter’s birth displaced other parents.

Published January 12, 2012

With her birth, Beyoncé's and Jay Z’s new baby girl, Blue Ivy, seems to have reinvented the term baby bling.

Already dubbed the music world’s smallest diva, the New York Post is reporting that little Miss Blue has received gifts totaling $1.5 million.

Some of the pricier swag the newest edition to the Carter family received includes a handmade solid gold horse from Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka with a $600,000 price tag, a coach-like crib from Posh Tots, which cost $20,000 and a $15,000 Swarovski crystal covered highchair.

Meanwhile, the head of Lennox Hill Hospital, Executive Director Frank Danza, has launched an internal investigation into complaints that Blue Ivy’s birth kept other parents from seeing their newborns, according to the New York Daily News.

Other parents who used the same birthing center as Beyoncé are currently being interviewed. Two families, one from Brooklyn and another from the Bronx, claim that Beyoncé’s beefed up security team prevented them from visiting their children in the hosptial’s neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Danza says that initial talks with a half dozen new parents has not uncovered any wrongdoing, but he told the New York Daily News, “The internal investigation was prompted by my own viewing of the news stories, which had indicated there were more parents, and those parents were in communication and had concerns.”

New parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z have not issued any official statement on the matter. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
