It’s a good job Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony have signed a $6million deal with People magazine for the first pictures of the newborn twins - because the couple are said to have spent $1.4million on their arrival.
According to In Touch Weekly, the couple paid $700,000 to reserve a special refurbished luxury birthing suite at North Shore University hospital in New York for the two weeks around Jennifer’s due date. The room, decked out with leather couches, a private kitchen, two flat-screen TVs and a large-screened Apple computer, lay empty for over a week until Jennifer checked in last Thursday and she spent three nights in the suite after giving birth to the twins just after midnight last Friday morning.
They also paid $300,000 in medical expenses (for private doctors and nurses primarily), another $300,00 on security and a further $100,000 on personal assistants on the run-up to the birth.
A source said regarding the expense: “It’s a lot of money but it was important for them that it all went as smoothly as possible. In [Jennifer’s] eyes, giving birth to her first children was more important than her wedding day so she wanted it all to be perfect.”
Jennifer and Marc took their babies - believed to be called Max and Emme - back to their Manhattan home on Monday.
