Whether you're a lotto fan, a royals fan or just a fan of celeb news like us, millions of people round the world have been glued to their computer screens and TV screens over the past week, eagerly anticipating the arrival of the newest addition to the British royal family. And now our patience has paid off, as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have introduced newly-born Princess Charlotte to the world. If you went to the bookies with that as your top royal name pick, you're sure to have hit the jackpot!
All the furore around the royal birth has us thinking though - these days it's a hugely expensive task to raise a child. From nappies to dummies to clothes, food and healthcare, you'd have to be a lotto winner to be able to afford just the basics for a newborn. Of course we doubt William and Kate are struggling in the finances department - and if you're a GiantLottos.com member, you won't have much trouble either. Just buy your lotto tickets online in time for the mid-week draws, and you could be making off with a huge multi-million jackpot!
Of course, some celebs take the idea of child care a little too far, going beyond the usual prams and cots and splashing out on all manner of extravagant baby and toddler accessories. Hit one of this week's massive lotto jackpots, and you too could be indulging your little one with gifts like:
It seems that bling isn't just for adults - at least not when the members of Destiny's Child are around. Singer Kelly Rowland started the trend by gifting Beyonce with a baby bathtub, studded in Swarovski crystals from top to bottom. While opinions differ as to whether the tub cost $3,800 or $5,200, Beyonce loved the idea so much, she spread the love by buying Kim Kardashian a high chair studded with the same expensive jewels, this time for the whopping price of $13,700. We wonder how easy it is to clean baby food off Swarovski crystals?
When you think of art and children, you usually think of crayon lines and paint smudges on walls, or finger paintings tacked up on the fridge. Not if you're Sandra Bullock though - a mum who splashed out on a $14,000 Andy Warhol print for her 1-year-old son Louis. We hope he likes pop art, or mum might have to make one awkward return to the auction house!
Why buy your little one a baby gym when you can buy them some actual real estate instead? At least that's what Beyonce and Jay-Z seem to think, having rented a $1 million nursery in the basement of Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, giving them convenient child care facilities while they enjoy the basketball upstairs. Or take a leaf out of Elton John and David Furnish's book - a set of parents who thought nothing of buying their first child a $2 million flat above their own LA property. At least he'll have plenty of options if he ever gets sent for a time out!
No matter how you want to spoil your children, or even take care of their daily needs and future education, there's no easier way to do it than with a windfall from a lotto jackpot. With the Mega Millions and EuroMillions draws on tonight, and the Powerball and UK Lotto draws on tomorrow, there are plenty of chances for you to fill your account with the funds you need. Just logon to GiantLottos.com, purchase your lottery tickets online, and get ready to give your children a bright, rewarding future!
