Beyonce and Jay-Z are sparing no expense when it comes to their baby: The couple is planning a 2,200-square-foot nursery inside their TriBeCa apartment, the Daily Mail reports, citing Us. One amusing quote from an insider: “Some people are like, 'Won't you be scared to leave your baby in that huge room?'"

Plus, MediaTakeOut reports that she traded her Maybach for a mom van ... if by mom van, you mean a $1 million customized Mercedes van that includes, among other necessities, a $150,000 audio system, a full bathroom complete with a shower, and wiring for DirecTV and wi-fi. In another one of the many signs that Beyonce’s pregnancy is nothing like yours, the Mail also notes that Bey was assisted out of said mom van by not one, but two helpers as she arrived at a meeting in New York yesterday.
