According to several online sources, Queen B checked into Lenox Hill Hospital on 77th street in NYC under the alias Ingrid Jackson and the Daily News claims she they rented out the entire fourth floor at a cost of $1.3 million (#richpeopleshyt). Celebs Rihanna and Uncle Russ tweeted congrats so we are inclined to think its true this time. Let me interject, this process has been like the Storm Watch on the news.. Everyday- is there a baby? Yes? No? What will the name be?. I hope you guys care this much when I deliver! NO? Oh! 😉
I read that security was tight, at that the employees had to turn in cells when then they arrived for their shifts.And do you want to know why, I am assuming security was super tight? One- because this power couple will be selling the pics of their new bundle of joy (Ivy Blue Carter or Blue Ivy). And two, because people can be crazy at times. Check out below the woman who tried to steal a baby from a hospital in Atlanta! Just thought she was going to run out of the hospital with someone else’s child!
Naquella Ballard, 19 yrs old
Naquelle Sontieq Ballard told Clayton County police, after she was arrested, that she bought blue scrubs at Walmart and planned to take a baby from Southern Regional Medical Center because she never told her boyfriend she had miscarried, the affidavit states.
Ballard was denied bond Thursday in Magistrate Court after she told Judge Robert Dolph she understood the felony charges against her — kidnapping and false imprisonment. Dolph said the severity of the crime made her ineligible for bond.
Ballard told police she had lied to her boyfriend a few days ago, claiming to have delivered “their child.” Therefore, she said she had to kidnap a child now, the affidavit states. Ballard said she planned to take the child to her boyfriend’s house and pretend it was their child.
None of Ballard’s family members appeared to be in attendance at the afternoon hearing. Another hearing will be held Jan. 17.
Ballard, accused of walking into a hospital room and trying to snatch a newborn Wednesday, was stopped in her tracks, thanks to an alarm system and two hospital employees, authorities said.
Ballard, of Morrow, allegedly posed as a hospital worker and walked into a room, where she took a 2-day-old girl, according to her arrest warrant. Ballard then placed the baby in her pocketbook, the warrant states.
A hospital alarm sounded when Ballard tried to walk away with the baby, and two employees stopped the woman, a hospital spokeswoman told the AJC. The woman walked out of the hospital without the infant, and the employees called police. The baby was not injured.
Witnesses were able to describe Ballard and her vehicle to officers, who stopped the woman about five miles away, in Lake City, Nguyen said.
The woman was taken into custody and charged with kidnapping and false imprisonment, both felonies, Nguyen said.
Additional charges are possible pending the outcome of the investigation, police said. Investigators plan to review surveillance footage from hospital cameras, Nguyen said.
In addition to recent security upgrades totaling $180,000, hospital employees in the Women’s Life Center are trained for situations like the one Wednesday morning, Amanda Bartlett, hospital spokeswoman, told the AJC. The unit goes through drills twice a year to prepare for emergency situations, Bartlett said.
