Jay-Z – Shawn Carter and Beyonce Knowles had their first child over the weekend; however, they waited until Monday to make the announcement.
Jay-Z has already put out a tribute rap to his baby girl, which features her vocals. Beyonce gave birth to their daughter, Blue Ivory Carter on Saturday, January 7, 2012. They described the natural birth of their 7-pound daughter as extremely peaceful and emotional.
However, there were other patients at the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City that were less than pleased with the way the hospital handled this high-profile birth. There have been many different rumors circulating over the past few days about the celebrity couple receiving special treatment from the hospital and other new parents not being able to get in to see their newborns.
These reports have been denounced by the Lenox Hill Hospital, for instance, the claim that Jay-Z and Beyonce shelled out $1.3 million in order to secure the entire maternity floor is false. Apparently, they were in an executive suite which is available to anyone who wishes to pay the rate for the accommodations.
The New York City hospital also denounced the rumors that a father was unable to see his premature twin girls due to the couple’s security team. According to the medical center, none of the family’s security team was placed where they would have caused any of the families to be delayed or prevented from visiting the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Furthermore, there have not been any complains to the hospital about this being an issue.
