For a person who has been known to drop $500,000 for a travel van to go about in comfort and $1.5 million on a birthday present; a diamond encrusted pram (make that two) is the least that Beyonce can buy. The singer who gave birth on the 7th of January this year, reportedly placed the order for the pram(s) with a Dubai based designer shortly after announcing her pregnancy. Its probably the earliest that any baby is being gifted diamonds (unless you recall Mariah Carey).
In order to prevent speculation about the sex of the baby (or perhaps it was too early to know) , Beyonce asked the designer to create two prams – one each in the traditional blue and pink colors. At $50,000 a-piece ; Beyonce may simply have thought this to be a cheap deal. After all, the net worth of this Hollywood couple (Beyonce and Jay-Z) is greater then even the Smiths (Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt) with their collective worth being twice that of Pitt and Jolie.
Beyonce has an estimated net worth of $300 million. She was the richest star under 30 in 2010 according to Forbes and also the most powerful and influential celebrity.
The identity of the pram as well as its design is being kept as a secret. We are sure that the shutter bugs who follow Beyonce everywhere shall give us a sneak peek of this bling pram soon. Given that she gave birth to a baby girl, the blue one may just be kept in storage for a later date. While on the subject, it is worth noting that the proud papa booked the entire fourth floor of Lenox Hill Hospital for $1.3 million allowing Beyonce complete privacy and the best care during child birth.
