We all know by now that Jessica Simpson is not "still pregnant." She finally delivered baby girl Maxwell Drew Johnson in Los Angeles on Tuesday. And now that we've gotten a look at photos of her delivery room suite, it looks like JSimps might have out-diva'd Beyonce herself in the delivery department.
Word has it Simpson and Eric Johnson snagged Cedars Sinai's luxurious three-room, two-bath suite to meet their new daughter, and it is sweeeeeet. We're talking flat screen TVs, private living room for sister Ashlee and crew to hang out and talk about the new addition to the fam, and of course a shower stall large enough to fit a soccer team.
Want a look? We've got pictures!
The whole thing goes for a whopping $3,784 per day (which is about $500 a night more than Beyonce apparently spent over at Lenox Hill in New York).
I'd almost be jealous of all these celebrity moms and their fancy maternity wards if it weren't for one thing.
Jessica still had to go through the whole delivering a child thang. Pretty bed linens and courtesy bathrobes are nice, but they don't protect you from contractions or vaginal tearing (did you catch the size of Simpson's little girl? She was a healthy 9 pounds, 13 ounces!). And if Simpson went the C-section route -- we haven't heard that one yet -- there's no amount of money that makes up for several weeks of painful recovery from surgery.
More from The Stir: Jessica Simpson's Baby Name Is All Kinds of Wrong
Don't get me wrong. A little luxury after going through the birthing process is nothing to sneeze at.
I would have much preferred Cedars' basket of fresh fruit and muffins, beverage-stocked fridge, and private meals for two that their celebrity guests get to the cold dinner my local hospital scrounged up for me late at night after my daughter was born (and I hadn't eaten in over a day). No one even bothered to check food preferences or allergies with me, so I was served some kind of mystery meat with a congealed sauce on top. I'm a vegetarian. I don't know if it was the hormones or the hunger pains, but I burst into tears. Thank God my husband ran to the snack machine. Wonder if Doritos come out in colostrum ...
But at the end of the day, even the women who flounce into the delivery room with their makeup just so and their own towels and sheets packed in their bags are just like the rest of us. Women have been delivering babies the same way for thousands of years, and no amount of money is going to change that.
If you had Jessica Simpson's kind of money, what would you want in your delivery room when you welcomed your new baby?
