Celebrity parents we all wish we had

Pretty sure your parents didn't build you a $100,000 treehouse.

Our parents undeniably give us the best of everything. However some celebrity parents seem to have gone a bit too far in their lavish love.

I mean… of course your 2-year-old baby needs a $2 million room instead of a baby nursery, and your 7-year-old daughter needs $48 million diamonds to play dress-up in, right?

Here are a few of the celebrity parents we all wished we had:

1. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise

When 9-year-old Suri Cruise decided that she wanted a tree house in the back of her house, her mother, Katie, gave her one.

Remember the little Toys”R”Us house you wanted with a mock-kitchen made of plastic? Well, the only difference is that Suri’s is literally a house.

The fully equipped tree house comes with running water, electricity, and proper carpeting. The total cost of the little toddler’s tree house is just S$135,000 (US$100,000). That’s all. Just US$100,000.

Anything for little Suri.

2. Victoria and David Beckham

Well, this isn’t just because of the good genes their children all seem to have inherited. Although undeniably, the Beckham children are quite a sight to behold.

Remember the little glow-in-the-dark stickers we all used to have all over our ceilings? That was the in-thing for every kid growing up, and Victoria and David definitely did not want their first-born to lose out.

Brooklyn Beckham has a fiber-optic ceiling in his bedroom that simulates a starry sky at night. At just $50,000, he gets to enjoy looking up into the night sky.

I’m pretty sure dear Brooklyn needs the $50,000 dollar starry night view. Of course, just a glass window above wouldn’t suffice. What happens if it rains? Or if the stars are hidden that night? How is dear Brooklyn going to sleep then?

3. Elton John and David Furnish

Remember that sweet little nursery of you grew up in? With that little cot you sleep in and toys strewn all over the floor?

Well, not for little Zachary. As the first son of Elton and David, Zachary has a $2 million apartment as his little nursery. I’m afraid it’s barely enough space for the darling baby to crawl around.

For all that money spent, he’d better remember it 10 years down the road. Or maybe darling Zachary would already be moved into a castle fit for a teenager then.

4. Joseph Lau

Diamonds are women’s best friend. And maybe some girls’ too, seeing how Hong Kong Tycoon Joseph Lau spent S$104 million (US$77 million) on rare diamonds for his 7-year-old daughter Josephine.

It doesn’t stop there. He named the 12.03-carat Blue Moon diamond worth S$65.5 million (US$48.4 million) as “The Blue Moon of Josephine”.

It must be quite an experience playing dress up with real diamonds named after you. Fake jewelry for your little girl’s dress up games? What an utter disgrace.

5. Beyonce and Jay-Z

Instead of the normal plastic or built-in ceramic tubs we float our rubber duckies in, little Blue Ivy bathes in a S$70,491 (US$5,200) crystal encrusted bathtub. We wonder what her rubber duckies are made of then.

Beyond rubber duckies, it is every little girl’s dream to have prince charming ride to them on a white horse, and Jay-Z seems bent on giving his little girl her dream… Just maybe without a prince.

Instead of a simple white horse, the 2-year-old was given a full-blooded Arabian horse costing $75,000 for her birthday. Oh, and a private zoo tour as well.

Of course 2-year-olds need real horses, what do you expect them to do? Play with toys?
