Jennifer Lopez spends $1.4 million giving birth

Filed under: Your Pregnancy, Bump Watch, Celeb Kids, Celeb Parents

It's been over 25 years since I gave birth, so I have no recollection of just how much it cost me to have that baby. But I think it would be a pretty safe bet to assume the number was in the thousands, nowhere near the $1.4 million Jennifer Lopez is said to have spent birthing her twins.

According to several sources online, the cost of giving birth in the U.S. averages just under $9,000. So, how do you stretch that number to $1.4 million? JLo did it by shelling out $700,000 for a luxury birthing suite, spending $300,000 on private doctors and nurses, adding on another $300,000 for security and topping it all off with $100,000 in salaries for personal assistants during her pregnancy.

Deduct that from the reported $6 million Lopez is being paid for exclusive pictures of her babies and she still ends up making a nice profit.
