Tina Fey & Jane Krakowski: We Didn't Get Beyoncé's Celebrity Childbirth Treatment

Beyoncé wasn’t the first famous mom to deliver at New York City’s Lenox Hospital – 30 Rock stars Jane Krakowski and Tina Fey both welcomed their kids there as well, though they joked on the TODAY show this morning that they didn’t quite get the same A-list treatment as the ‘Single Ladies’ singer!

“We had very similar experiences to Beyonce and Jay-Z,” says Jane, mom to son Bennett, in reference to reports that the music power couple rented out an entire floor of the hospital for their daughter Blue Ivy‘s delivery.

Adds Tina, who has daughters Alice and Penelope, “My celebrity treatment at Lenox Hill involved taking a group breastfeeding class in a closet. It’s clearly supposed to be a storage closet, with a bunch of other mothers, and a nurse grabs one of your breasts and another lady’s and is shoving them in a baby’s mouth.”

The Bossypants author did go on to praise the hospital’s maternity staff, but was quick to clarify that she won’t be needing their services again: “No! Next time I’m there, it’ll be with a broken leg.”

    Love them! If it’s true about the celebrity hostage overtaking of that hospital by B and overkill, maybe a new hospital for Divas should be built for people like them….Just sayin…normal people really don’t want to mix with them….

    Well, they aren’t exactly on the scale of Beyonce, so they shouldn’t have expected that kind of treatment. I’m just saying…

      lol They definitely weren’t expecting that treatment, they were basically making fun of it. If you listen to the interview it’s clear they think it was ridiculous just like most of the rest of the United States.

        My thoughts exactly!!

      LaKesha- you are right they are not on her level they are well above. Great actresses, comedians and mothers. Oh and they dont think they deserve “special” treatment just because they are having a baby.

    There really should be a hospital built just for celebrities who want all that special treatment. It should be out in the middle of nowhere where they can be treated like the most important people in the world and kept far away from us “normies”.
    Celebrities who don’t expect an entire hospital floor all to themselves such as Tina and Jane would still be welcome at the regular hospitals but divas like Beyonce would be required to be choppered out to her medical palace so not to disturb us.

    All those stories included the supposed “c-section” have been refuted by Beyonce. They had a suite at the hospital that is available to all mothers giving birth. No one was denied access to their children. It seems just about all of the gossip was a bunch of lies.

    Maybe her PR people started this rumor themselves to counteract the RUDE rumor going on that she was not even pregnant to begin with and was using a surrogate, hmmmm…..this at least put that gossip out of light, thankfully.

  • SMH

    anyone can “refute” stories.

    I love Tina Fey!

    I think all expectant mothers should get celebrity treatment in the hospitals. Why does it matter how famous you are.

    Not true, a father of premature twins went to the paper and said to body guards would not allow him to see his twins, he had to wait 30 minutes for a doctor to give them the ‘ok’. It’s disgusting, how entitled this couple feels.

    • LaKesha

      It’s disgusting how entitled that father felt. Why go to the press and not the hospital? I would have spent that 30 minutes demanding that I be allowed to see my children. Seems he wanted to piggybabck off of this couple’s fame…

      • NYC Mommy

        Pretty sure he did not have to go to the press… they were all over the place. From what I read he did go to hospital to get authorization from a doctor to see his own babies. He probably spoke to press when leaving hospital… he was angry and they were available.

          Well put, NYC Mommy!!

      • Siera

        What would have been disgusting is the man asking for money. However, all he asked for was a simple apology. How is that piggybacking off Beyonce and Jay-Z’s “fame”? Because of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s entitlement issues the man was prevented from seeing his premature newborn twins.
