Beyonce And Jay-Z Stopped Parents from Seeing Their Newborn Kids
We realize that we're risking life and limb by starting off with the Beyhive's queen bee, but on the life-changing day when Bey and Jay became parents, they decided to celebrate by trampling over a bunch of other new parents. In December 2011, Beyonce was admitted to the neonatal unit at Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC with a bad case of "This baby is chestbursting from my butt(?) earlier than planned." (We have no idea how babies work.) Within hours, the ward was transformed into something resembling a clandestine black site, complete with partitions, covered windows, deactivated security cameras, and a wealth of private security personnel.
This would've been fine if the couple were having their child in a private ward. They're rich and famous, and TMZ would absolutely kill to get their hands on that placenta. We get it. The only problem was that this wasn't a private ward. It was a regular bustling maternity ward, complete with members of the public. Which meant that security, in their zeal to stop anyone from overhearing the world's most perfectly pitched pregnancy screams, were soon stepping on parents desperate to see their own newborn children.
