Memorable Celebrity Birth Moments
Beyoncé's maternal security
Protecting one's cub is a natural instinct, so how far did Beyoncé and Jay Z go to keep prying eyes away? A few expectant moms and new dads who visited the pediatric ward at Lenox Hill Hospital, where Blue Ivy was born Jan. 5, complained that security pressured them to vacate the premises. The hospital denied allegations, saying legitimate visitors were given access, and other witnesses say that the tough treatment only came when people tried to sneak a peek. Even one mother-to-be who fussed also admitted that she had tried to get a look-see of the celebrity firstborn. "I just caught a glimpse," she
said to E! News. "She's beautiful."
