Everyone wants to spoil their kids, to see their faces light up when they receive a gift, and let’s face it, we all want to be the reason for their smiles! It's natural to want the best for your kids, and if you had the money, you would make sure that they always had everything that their little heart desired!
What do you think would happen if you did have the money to give your kids everything they could ever dream of? We’ve all heard about how celebrities splurge on the clothes, cars, and vacations for themselves, even more incredible is the amount that Hollywood's most famous are spending on their children, some before they’re even born!
Check out some of our favourite celebrity parents extravagant purchases for their kids.
19 David and Victoria Beckham
This British power couple definitely has money to spend. David Beckham is one of the world’s most celebrated soccer players. Victoria, best known for her years as Posh Spice, has a booming career in the fashion industry.
Together these two have a combined net worth of $650 Million. This is why it’s okay that they spent $200,000 on a playhouse and $50,000 on a matching treehouse for their three sons Romeo, Cruz and Brooklyn, and $900 on a iCandy Peach stroller for daughter Harper.
These kids are living in their own personal “Beckingham Palace.”
18 Michael Jackson
When the famed King of Pop died in 2009 of drug intoxication, it was rumoured he was more than $500 Million in debt. This seems hard to believe, but this ultra-famous popstar has ultra-expensive taste.
Thanks to a hugely successful posthumous album with more than 50 million in sales, Michael's estate went from negative to $1.5 Billion. This left his three kids Michael Jr, Paris, and Prince with a combined share of $8 Million per year.
Thankfully, they don’t have the same spending problem as their late father, however they are not frugal. The trio spend their $8 Million buying jewelry for friends, taking $200 per hour private karate lessons, and renting penthouse suites in Vegas. Talk about a generous allowance.
16 Jay Z and Beyoncé
Every little girl has dreamed of getting a pony for her birthday, and every once in awhile those dreams come true. However, we should all have known that a pony is just not enough for the daughter of Queen Bey herself.
Jay Z and Beyonce bought their two-year old daughter Blue Ivy a $75,000 pure-blooded Arabian horse for her second birthday. Allegedly, the queen-in-training expressed an interest in horses and the multi-talented duo jumped at the chance to make their little Blue happy. Woah Nelly!
14 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
North West is probably one of the most publicized babies in the world right now, and rightfully so. With two of the most fashion-forward parents in the bizz, it's only fitting that little Nori followed suit.
Daddy West bought his six-month old princess a mini electric Lamborghini to match his own $750,000 whip.
Did we mention that it wasn’t even her birthday? This $400 toy was a ‘just-because’ gift for the then 6-month old babe. For her first birthday, the parents went all out, throwing a ‘Cowboys and Indians’ themed party at sister Kourtney’s house renting a Ferris wheel, moon bounce, and giant tipi for the occasion.
12 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Having 6 kids is a full time job. Not only does it require a huge amount of time and effort, but it also costs a small fortune just to clothe, feed, and send them off to school.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith don’t hold back when it comes to their 6 kids, and are rumoured to spend around $10 Million per year on their beloved Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne. With $7000 birthday parties, $1 Million nannies, and almost $1 Million tutors, it’s no wonder how this celeb-couple could rack up such a hefty bill.
10 Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
The now-divorced couple were trying to have a baby for a long time, which is why they were so ecstatic to have their fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe. They pulled out all the stops to design the perfect nursery for their little bundles of joy.
Mariah designed every aspect of the room with a specially chosen team. With two cribs at $30,000 each, the nursery is rumoured to have cost between $100,000 and $1 Million.
8 Jessica Simpson
Pregnant Jessica Simpson went all out for the birth of her daughter Maxwell, making sure she, and her soon-to-be baby would have all the comforts of home during their hospital stay.
Mrs. Daisy Dukes spent a total of $2 Million renting out a whole floor of the hospital, 30 personal bodyguards, and pre-ordering a personalized room service spread to suit all her pregnancy-craving needs. Now that’s how you do labour.
6 Jennifer Lopez
As we know, Jenny from the block didn’t always live the high life, which is why she has no reservations when it comes providing for her twins Max and Emme.
Since they were born, this Latina has made sure they want for nothing, and from the time they were born they were playing with diamond-encrusted rattles, and sleeping on 600 thread count Egyptian cotton crib sheets.
She and ex-husband Marc Anthony even bought two mini Shetland ponies for the twins before they were born. Move out of the way Blue Ivy, these two have got you beat!
4 Tom Cruise
We’ve all heard of divorced parents battling for their child’s affection by spoiling them, but ‘spoiling’ takes a whole new meaning when your parents are Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
Cruise has been showering his 7-year old daughter Suri with gifts, taking her on shopping sprees, and vacations to private resorts, each time flying her out by private jet. Although Suri is probably loving the time with her dad, this is probably not the best way to handle a divorce!
2 P Diddy
When Diddy’s son Justin Dior Combs celebrated his sweet 16, dad wanted it to make sure it would be one he’d never forget. While lots of kids get cars for their 16th birthday, not many can say they got a brand new $360,000 Maybach.
This is just one of the many gifts Justin got from dad including a $10,000 check (which Justin generously donated), and a massive party which was featured in an episode of MTV’s My Super Sweet 16.
