Beyonce and Jay-Z have splashed out more than £5,000 on presents for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby.

The couple - who have 18-month-old daughter Blue Ivy together - forked out on an array of lavish gifts for their friends' two-week-old girl North West, including personalised Christian Dior baby booties and a three-piece sterling silver Elsa Peretti Padova baby set with the tot's name on.

A source said: ''Kanye is one of Jay-Z's closest friends so he wanted to get the best gift. They've had a girl themselves, so they know the right type of present.

''They also brought their baby girl Blue Ivy to come over and meet North.

''She's old enough now to be really interested in babies.''

Beyonce and Jay-Z took the gifts round to Kim's mother Kris Jenner's Beverly Hills home, and the 'Single Ladies' hitmaker gave the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star some diet advice following her pregnancy.

The source added to The Sun newspaper: ''Any bad blood between the ladies has all been brushed under the carpet now Kim's a mum - Beyonce was even sharing weight-loss tips with her.''

Beyonce and Jay-Z's generosity comes after they sent Kim a £9,000 Swarovski crystal-studded high chair, which was designed by Carla Monchen, as a baby shower gift last month.
