Rumors are swirling today that Jennifer Lopez has checked into North Shore University Medical Center.
Hospital officials denied that the Bronx-born superstar who is expecting twins was at the medical center. Two hospital sources, however, said she was “in the house” and had checked in under a false name.
Jennifer, 38, and her husband, the singer Marc Anthony, both live in Brookville and announced in November they were expecting. Rumors circulated throughout the medical center yesterday that Jennifer, who is reportedly due in the spring, was there.
But officials repeatedly denied she was at the hospital and a spokesperson for Jennifer could not immediately be reached for comment.
“She is not in the hospital,” said spokeswoman Adina Conn. “She is not here under a pseudonym.”
The parking lot was quiet at the hospital.
But visitors to the hospital in recent days have reported hearing staff talk about “the J.Lo room,” and ? no surprise ? it’s a little more lavish than what you find on the average maternity ward. The brand new room, probably located on the existing maternity floor, is said to feature wood flooring instead of standard issue hospital linoleum, and two flat screen TVs.
Jennifer is apparently having twins, a boy and a girl. And the mother-to-be has set up one of three nurseries at the Brookville home.
Baby boutique Petit Tresor was designing the nurseries on Long Island and in Los Angeles and Miami with “traditional sleigh cribs and Ultrasuede gliders from Europe,” as well as “silk and organza sheet sets” with the babies’ names embroidered on the linens “later on.” Says a source: “She’s very involved with everything. Her taste is very elegant … very luxurious.”
