Jessica Simpson isn’t the only nervous new mom who wants to pamper herself on delivery day. But the 31-year-old’s bank-busting birthing plans have even her closest friends shaking their heads in disbelief. When it comes to Jessica’s comfort — and her baby’s — money’s no object: She’s planning on spending almost $2 million! Of course, given that Jessica hopes to sell the first shots of Maxi for as much as $4 million, she’ll recoup her investment.
Like Beyoncé before her, Jessica has rented out an entire wing of the hospital (approximately $500,000 in cost) so that she can give birth in private. “She’s turning the maternity ward into Fort Knox,” the pal says. “If her friends and family want to visit her, they’ll have to make it through numerous checkpoints!”
And she’s not about to rely on hospital security to keep her baby safe: Jessica plans to hire 30 armed guards to protect Maxi 24/7, a cost estimated to be around $1,318,500. “She’s terrified of kidnapping,” the pal explains. “Her head of security just held a pre-birth meeting for her family to brief them on the rules!”
