This past Saturday night Jay-Z and Beyonce's bundle of joy Blu Ivy got an unexpected visit from her superstar parents' musical peers. LL Cool J, Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj and Prince were just a few celebs to land at the Carter estate.
Just one month since her highly anticipated arrival in New York City, Blu was the subject of the weekly night time show. Along with LL and company, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt also stopped by to pay their respects to the lil Carter.
Just recently the first photos of Blu Ivy were revealed to the public along with a note from the Carters thanking fans for respecting their privacy. Up until then Ivy was completely kept under wraps following a high profile yet disclosed birth.
The couple reportedly paid more than $1 million to have privacy at NYC's Lenox Hill Hospital. According to some reports, the couple requested so much privacy that some parents were prevented from seeing their own newborns. But the experts said that level of isolation is nothing new for celebrities.
"It's very common for celebrities to sneak in and out of hospitals," David Caplan said. "It's actually very easy for celebrities to sneak in and out. There's multiple doors in and out. They use decoys. There'll be someone who looks like a celebrity. You go at different times of the night. Hospitals are also, at the same time, hotbeds of activity, so it's not like you're going somewhere really quiet."
"This was a very carefully arranged, organized hospital visit. Nothing was left to chance," Rob Shuter added. "I suspect the conversations between her security team and officials with the hospital [went on] for several weeks. Working with big celebrities myself, these moments are very, very carefully choreographed. Not only because they want to protect their privacy, they also don't want to have a dangerous scene on their hands. Hospitals in New York and L.A. especially, where a lot of celebrities live, has people on staff that are there to make sure these things work very carefully and in a very private matter."
