The lavish and ultra-private arrangements Kim Kardashian is making for the upcoming birth of her baby girl with Kanye West closely parallel the arrangements Beyonce made for Blue Ivy’s birth, according to
June 7 reports from Reality TV World and AllVoices.com and from June 6 Popular Critic.
- Maximum Privacy and Security
Popular Critic is reporting that in order to ensure the utmost privacy and maximum security during the birth of their child, Kim and Kanye have rented out an entire hospital floor at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where Kim is scheduled to give birth in a few weeks. The floor includes a lavishly appointed luxury birthing suite which rents for $3000 to $4,000 a day. See Kim Kardashian Trying to Outdo Beyonce for Diva Delivery of her Baby
Beyonce and Jay-Z were rumored to have paid between $840,000 and $1.3 million to rent an entire floor at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York for the birth of Blue Ivy last year – though hospital officials claimed the amount was greatly exaggerated. Beyonce and Jay-Z even brought in their own security team to patrol the perimeter of the hospital and the floor.
Both luxury birthing suites include a separate bedroom where the expectant father can sleep. If the rumors are true about Kanye’s squeamishness, while Kim is in labor, he’ll be hiding in there.
- Cell Phones Banned
Kim Kardashian is so paranoid that pictures of the baby will be leaked or that someone on the hospital staff will try to film the baby’s birth that cell phones have been banned. She has requested that staff members’ cell phones be confiscated while she is there. Only two senior members of the hospital staff will be allowed to keep their phones.
Beyonce had hospital employees at Lenox Hill turn in their cell phones when they arrived for their shifts. She also had hospital workers cover the lenses of security cameras on their floor with tape. However, many of the security measures Beyonce and Jay-Z put in place were allegedly done to cover up the fact that they were using a surrogate for Blue Ivy’s birth.
- Photographer, Camera Crew and Stylist
A top photographer has been hired to document Kim Kardashian’s first week as a new mother. And of, course Kim’s reality TV camera crew will be there, even though she insists that footage of her giving birth, or of the new baby will not be shown on her reality TV show.
Kim will be wearing special lingerie bought in Paris rather than an ordinary run-of-the-mill hospital gown. Her favorite hairstylist will also be there to make sure every hair stays in place.
Beyonce reportedly wore a special “delivery gown” and had a custom-designed wig or hairpiece for the occasion. A make up artist was present to make sure Beyonce looked her best as the event was videoed for Beyonce’s personal archives.
- The Same Lucite Crib
Kim and Kanye have reportedly shelled out $4,000 to buy a Lucite Vetro crib from NurseryWorks for their baby girl. This happens to be the very same Lucite crib Beyonce bought for Blue Ivy while shopping in New York with her sister Solange, and her mother, Tina Knowles.
- Trademarking the Baby’s Name
Rumor has it that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are planning to trademark their baby’s name like Beyonce and Jay-Z trademarked Blue Ivy’s name. Kanye no doubt wants to keep others from capitalizing on the name of his little girl. But for Kim, like the rest of the Kardashian clan, it’s a shrewd business move so that at a future date they can figure out how best to make a profit off the kid.
- A Celebrity Line of Maternity Clothes
Kim Kardashian has mentioned several times that she would like to design a line of maternity clothes some time in the future. (If she does, let’s hope they look better than most of the things she personally wore during her pregnancy.)
There were rumors that Beyonce was thinking of designing a line of maternity clothes for the House of Dereon – the fashion company she and her mother, Tina Knowles jointly own.
- A Major Deviation from Beyonce’s Plan
Despite Kim Kardashian copying many of the elements in Beyonce’s ‘s birth plan for Blue Ivy, there’s one major deviation. The location of the hospital where Blue Ivy was to be born was kept secret from the media until after her birth.
In Kim’s case, she’s already alerted practically every media outlet and celebrity gossip site that the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles is where her baby girl will be born. It’s important to the whole Kardashian clan as well as to the attention-loving Kim that the media know where they are and what they are doing at all times.
This means there will probably be dozens of photographers and reporters camped out at the hospital while Kim is in labor so they can be among the first to report the news of the baby’s birth.
- How Does Beyonce Feel About Kim Kardashian Stealing her Plan?
Does Beyonce know that Kim Kardashian is copying multiple elements from her diva delivery plan?
Will Beyonce be flattered or annoyed that Kim appears to be following the preparations she and Jay-Z made for Blue Ivy’s birth?
Does Beyonce even care?
Knowing Beyonce, probably not.
