When your parents are rich and famous, they often get carried away when it comes to celebrating milestones such as birthdays, and some celebrities are downright ridiculous when it comes to throwing parties for their children. We have all heard about extravagant sweet sixteen parties that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, but a baby’s first birthday? Really? Most of us were lucky to get a cake and a few minor gifts, or maybe our cousin dressed up as a party clown. But, not these kids. Their parents shelled out large for costly parties with lots of things to do and delicious things to munch on. Let’s count down the most over-the-top, ridiculous celebrity baby birthdays and while we’re at it, get green with envy.
10 10. P!nk and Willow
9 Usher and Naviyd
8 Britney Spears and Jayden and Preston
7 Kourtney Kardashian and Penelope
6 Gwen Stefani and Kingston Rossdale
Kingston Rossdale, the son of Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, celebrated his 4th birthday in style. Would you expect anything less from Gwen Stefani? The tots birthday was attended by Kate Beckinsdale, as well as the Beckham brood. The party cost a cool $15 000 and featured a bouncy castle, balloon artists, a face painter and live super hero characters. The party was attended by 100 of little Kingston’s friends and they chowed down on burgers, hot dogs, quesidillas, tacos and chicken fingers. Sounds like a menu fit for childhood royalty. Most of us are lucky to just get hot dogs and face paint.
5 Tori Spelling and Stella
4 Taylor Armstrong and Kennedy
3 Victoria Beckham and children
2 Beyonce and Blue Ivy
1 Katie Holmes and Suri
Suri Cruise is almost as famous, and just as good looking, as her celebrity parents, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. Suri’s second birthday cost more than some people make in an entire year. When you are rich and famous and you have a kid, you blow mad amounts of cash on them and that’s just what Cruise and Holmes did. For Suri’s second birthday they spent $100,000 on celebrations, shelling out $17,000 on fresh cut flowers and $45,000 for catering by Wolfgang Puck and over $5000 on cakes and cupcakes. Which begs the question, was the party for Suri or was it an opportunity for the Cruise family to show off? The theme was butterflies and they filled a room with 1000 live butterflies, which is pretty awesome. As far as it goes, Suri’s second birthday fits the profile of legendary. If her second birthday is any indication, her recent 5th birthday party, which was tea party themed, was probably just as epic and cost a cool $20,000.
