From Bootylicious to Babylicious: Beyonce Needs a New Crib
For once, Lady Gaga wasn't the one people were talking about. At the Video Music Awards Beyoncé, made an exciting announcement: she's expecting. It will be the first baby for Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z, often referred to as the most powerful couple in music. The pair got hitched in 2008 and now they're expanding their family. Although not officially announced, Beyoncé's due date is probably set for early 2012. That gives her plenty of time to create a nursery luxurious enough for this mini music mogul. But just in case she needs some help we found the best baby luxuries available.
This crib will look perfect in Beyoncé and Jay-Z's crib because it is just about the most expensive one money can buy. Coming in at $19,995 The Majestic Carriage Crib is fit for royalty—and that's pretty much what this power couple's dynasty is. It's constructed from solid cedar and birch and features a rear box designed as a changing table.
Soft as Silk
These super posh crib sheets will ensure that baby Knowles-Z is surrounded by luxury. The dupioni silk crib linens are designed by Art for Kids and sell for $1,674 at BabyBox.com. But when you consider that shipping is free and your purchase includes a bumper, coverlet, fitted sheet and a dust ruffle it's quite a bargain, really.
Light It Up
If Beyoncé's bundle of joy ends up being a girl, then this 5-Arm Light Pink Chandelier, $1600, adorned with roses from 2SweetSisters.com will be perfect. If she ends up with a baby boy, she should consider herself lucky when it comes lighting up the nursery. This Sports 4-Arm Chandelier from 2 Sweet Sisters featuring soccer, basketball, football and baseball players is only $580.
There's no doubt Beyoncé's baby will be making bank in no time. The tot will probably be brimming with talent from day one and the paparazzi will undoubtedly pay big bucks for photos of the little one. So why not start them off right with a sterling silver piggy bank from Tiffany and Co? It's $1,350 which is pennies compared to this baby's portfolio.
Beyonce's Baby's Bootie
Most moms stock their nurseries with diaper rash ointment, baby lotion and baby powder. But Beyoncé probably won't be buying Johnson's & Johnson's. We predict her nursery will be packed with little luxuries like Bamford Baby Powder, sold at Barney's. It's a blend of essential oils, organic corn flour and kaolin. A small 3.5 ounce bottle carries a price tag of $32.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are probably eager to pass their love for music onto their new son or daughter. That's why we can totally imagine this kid-sized baby grand piano from LuxuryLamb.com in the new nursery. While other tiny pianos are purely toys, this one is the real deal—just pint-sized. It's $2,099 and comes in black, white or red.
We think we've come up with a great list of possibilities for Beyoncé and Jay-Z's new nursery. Now if only we could come up with some possible names for this future A-lister...
