Couple's little one will have plenty of space to play

Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z are reportedly planning to extend their New York home now they’re starting a family.

But the couple, whose first child is due in February, aren’t just building a box room – insiders tell Us Weekly that Beyoncé, 30, and 41-year-old Jay-Z‘s Tribeca apartment ‘will have a nursery that is 2,200 square feet’.

Jay-Z and Bey – aka Mr and Mrs Shawn Carter – certainly don’t mind splashing cash.

Now learnt last month that their baby bill will exceed £1m
across the duration of the pregnancy.

Beyoncé‘s paying a dietician to organise a food plan of natural organic meals for her,’ says our source.

‘She’s having daily massages and has spent a fortune on lotions to prevent stretchmarks and keep her feeling good.

Jay-Z’s making sure she has everything she needs.’
