Looking back on our childhood, the word “spoiled” had a totally different connotation than it does today – especially if you’re fortunate enough to be an offspring of one of Hollywood’s elite. Take a birthday for example. For the majority of us who grew up in a middle class home, being pampered on say, our 10th birthday included an outing to Chuck E. Cheese’s and a homemade cake. Can you imagine if invited what little Suri Cruise would say? Just like their A-list parents, Hollywood’s most indulged youngsters are more famous than their parents – some even more so. And what keeps these kids in the headlines is the infamous gifts their richer than rich parents continuously bestow upon them.
Here are 10 of Hollywood’s most pampered children and some of the most lavish gifts they’ve received.
10. Max Bratman – Nursery For $35 Thousand
It’s no wonder when Max Bratman was born he was immediately living in the lap of luxury – his mama is none other than pop diva Christina Aguilera. The former Mrs. Bratman spared no expense when it came to her firstborn – his nursery reportedly took a design firm more than four months to create. The hefty $35 thousand dollar price tag included decor fit for a king (or in this case an A-list baby) like an 11-foot-tall moon Aguilera brought back from her ‘Back to Basics’ tour, designer furniture including a round crib and an eclectic mix of themes including Nintendo and Paddington Bear.
9. Blue Ivy Carter – Horse For $75 Thousand
Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s precious offspring Blue Ivy received the typical present most two-year-old’s would get when they turn two – a horse of course! But Miss Carter didn’t receive just any old pony. The diva-in-the-making was bequeathed a full-blooded Arabian – would you expect anything less? “Blue loves animals and expressed interest in having a horse so they bought her one,” a source revealed to Mediatakeout adding that the animal “was suitable for competing in equestrian.”
8. Brooklyn Beckham – Custom Built Playhouse For $187 Thousand
When Posh and Becks’ firstborn son Brooklyn turned six back in 2005, the couple dished out close to $200 thousand on the most elaborate playhouse. The 16-foot tall brick playhouse and adjoining play castle (which featured drawbridge and mock tower) was built on the couple’s former North London home fittingly dubbed ‘Beckhingham Palace.’
7. Emme & Max Anthony – A ‘Welcome To The World’ Party For $200 Thousand
When your Godfather is none other than Top Gun Tom Cruise, how could your ‘Welcome to the World’ party cost anything less than a few hundred thousand? When J.Lo and Marc Anthony‘s twins Emme and Max were born, Cruise took his newfound role seriously throwing the tots a christening party that is still being talked about to this day. According to the website Xfinity, the babes were decked out in adorable matching designer outfits and were given diamond rattles as a gift. The fraternal twins were in great company at the star-studded event. Famous faces who welcomed the new arrivals reportedly included Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham and Eva Longoria.
6. Justin Combs – Maybach For $360 Thousand
Diddy certainly knows how to take care of his kids. When Justin Dior Combs turned sweet 16 in 2010, his daddy did what most parents with certain means would do – bought his son a car. But this was not your typical Honda Civic most teens would happily be given. The wheels the music mogul purchased for his son? A silver Maybach with a $360 thousand price tag and was promptly attacked by the press for giving ‘a child’ such an extravagant gift. Combs also received a $10 thousand dollar cheque from his dad to open his own bank account at a lavish party abound with celebrity guests including Lil’ Kim and Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi.
5. Harper Beckham – Painting For $1 Million
If asked, little Harper Beckham would probably tell you that the best present she ever received from her footballer dad David and former Spice Girl mom Victoria wasn’t a doll or even a pony but a painting. Entitled ‘Daddy’s Girl,’ the Beckham’s asked renowned British artist Damien Hirst to do the honours and reportedly paid $1 million for the painting which features a huge pink heart and butterflies. Received on Harper’s first birthday, the artwork is prominently displayed in the adorable tot’s bedroom where she can admire it daily.
4. Prince George – Diamond Encrusted Nail Set For $ 1.6 Million
Imagine the nail-biting that must be involved when shopping for a royal baby? To commemorate Will and Kate’s little Prince’s first birthday, nail care company Stylfile created a file and clipper for children.
But unlike your typical nail care set, this one is made from 18-carat gold and is adorned with 350 one-carat diamonds. “Only the best will do for the third in line to the throne so we went back to the drawing board to transform the Nipper Clipper into a nail clipper that really is fit for Prince. We hope that this will make nail cutting much less of a chore,” said the company’s founder, Tom Pellereau.
3. Zachary Furnish-John – Luxury Apartment For $2 Million
‘Can you feel the love tonight?’ sang Elton John and his son Zachary certainly did feel that love when his famous daddy gifted him with his very own apartment back in 2011. The legendary singer and his partner Canadian-born filmmaker, David Furnish reportedly commissioned a top Hollywood designer to transform the apartment adjoining their LA home into a luxury nursery. A source told The Daily Mail “It seems a slightly odd arrangement when you have waited so long to have a child. It certainly gives a new answer to the question: what do you give the baby who has everything? His own flat, of course.”
2. Valentina Pinault – Estate For $12 Million
As if six-year-old Valentina Pinault wasn’t lucky enough to be born to one of the most beautiful women in the world, actress Selma Hayak, the little girl’s father is none other than François-Henri Pinault, CEO of luxury goods company Kering. Did we also mention the guy is loaded? He’s got a net worth of more than $15 billion! So it’s no wonder that Valentina lives a very pampered life. There’ll be no house hunting for this heiress! According to reports, her parents are holding a Los Angeles estate in trust for her. The home apparently costs $50 thousand a month to maintain.
1. Suri Cruise – Mansion For $13.5 Million
This list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the pampering received by a Miss. Suri Cruise. When her famous parents Tom and Katie split back in 2012, we all wondered, ‘who would get Suri?’ Though Katie received primary custody, Tom continued to dote on his only daughter spoiling her with lavish gifts fit for a princess. In 2012, The Mission Impossible star reportedly bought the tot a mansion in New York – not for her to live in but to keep all of the presents he’s bought her over the years. A source told Radar Online “Obviously there isn’t anywhere to keep a pony at Katie’s apartment, so this place is ideal. It also has space for her toys, many of which have been in storage since Katie quit their LA mansion.”
