Normally when a woman has a baby, there is some sort of baby shower to help the new mother obtain all the infant paraphernalia she’ll need. But, when the new mom is Beyoncé and the father is Jay-Z, one can safely say, they can afford the crib, the car seat and anything else they may need.

That’s why the new parents are donating many of the gifts that have been pouring in for Blue Ivy to charity.

According to the Huffington Post, a source told the Daily Star, “They’ve been sent literally hundreds of gifts in the past few days. Oprah gave a huge trunk of children’s books and others like P Diddy, Kanye West, Rihanna and Mariah Carey have all been sending luxurious baby treats.”

They continued, “Jay-Z and Beyoncé have decided to donate a massive selection of the presents to local charities for young mothers. They’ve already got the most precious gift – their new baby daughter – so they want to help out other parents who haven’t been as fortunate.”

We’re glad that young mothers who can’t afford all the luxuries will be benefiting from the birth of Blue Ivy. I’m sure they are feeling very thankful to Beyoncé and Jay-Z for their thoughtful contribution.
