While you were riding the subway pantless this weekend, Beyonce had her baby girl at New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital on the Upper East Side. Beyonce gave birth to Blue Ivy Carter on Saturday night (January 7th), who is the subject of dad Jay-Z‘s latest single, “Glory.”
Lots of was revealed in the beat, including a miscarriage the couple suffered and where Blue was conceived: “The most beautifulest thing in this world/Daddy’s little girl’You don’t yet know what swag is/But you was made in Paris/And mama woke up the next day and/Shot her album package/Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you disappeared/But nah, baby you magic”
According to the Daily Mail, B and Hova souped up the already swanktastic Lenox Hill Hospital (you know, the one Dr. Trey Macdougal worked at) with their own security and lockdown enforcements, which inconvenienced other new parents. The couple reportedly spent $1.3 million renovating the recovery area of the hospital (including a bullet-proof door to Beyonce’s room).
Neil Coulon, whose wife gave birth to premature twins, was barred from NICU several times by the couple’s security. “Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU (Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit) and it happened once on Friday — just because they wanted to use the hallway,” Coulon told the New York Daily News.
“Some people were upset,” a member of the hospital staff told the Daily News. “I heard a gentleman say he couldn’t go upstairs to see his baby (Saturday).”
“I know they spent $1.3 million and I’m just a contractor from Bed-Stuy, but the treatment we received was not okay,” Coulon fumed. “My wife is just terribly upset. She had a C-section. She gave birth to twins. She is sore. Nobody needs this.
“This is the NICU. Nobody cares if you’re a celebrity. Nobody is star-gazing. They just want to see their children. To have that circus roll into town and ruin our parade was unpleasant.”
