The couple are said to have splashed out in style as their baby girl reached landmark birthday.

Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z treated daughter Blue Ivy Carter to a £50,000 diamond-encrusted Barbie for her first birthday, it's been reported.

The specially customised doll is said to feature 160 diamonds, in addition to white gold jewellery.

The Sun reports that for their daughter's first birthday earlier this week the couple hosted a party in New York that included £60,000 of white and pink roses.

And guests were also treated to gifts, with each one receiving a personalised gold pen with Blue Ivy's name written on it.

A source told the newspaper: "Nothing's been too big or expensive for their little princess. They wanted her first birthday to set the tone for the rest of her life.

"They work hard for their money and the first thing they want to spend it on is their baby girl."
