Tina Fey on Giving Birth: I Didn't Get the Beyonce Treatment!

The 30 Rock star jokes that her celebrity pampering "involved take a group breastfeeding class in a closet"

New York's Lenox Hill Hospital is quite the happening place to have a baby these days -- and not just because it's where Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy Carter over the weekend. During a visit to the Today show Tuesday, 30 Rock stars Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski revealed that they also had their children at the hospital -- though they perhaps didn't get the same pampering treatment Beyonce and her family were rumored to have received.

"We had very similar experiences to Beyonce and Jay-Z," Krakowski, 43, joked.

But Fey, 41, remembered things differently. "My celebrity treatment at Lenox Hill involved taking a group breastfeeding class in a closet," she said with a laugh. "It's clearly supposed to be a storage closet with a bunch of other mothers, and a nurse grabs one of your breasts and another lady's and is shoving them in a baby's mouth."

Fey and Krakowski were quick to praise the hospital's nursing staff, though Fey promised that wasn't her way of teasing that she's ready for baby No. 3. "Next time I'm (at Lenox Hill), it'll be with a broken leg," she said.

As for Beyonce and her hubby, there were rumors that the power couple spent $1.3. million to rent an entire maternity floor, but the hospital firmly denies that. Lenox Hill did say that Beyonce and Jay-Z rented an "executive suite," though, which might explain the latest story Us Weekly is running.

A "Lennox Hill Hospital source" claims that a month ago six or eight rooms were torn down and converted into two suites with mahogany walls and other "posh accents." And here's the kicker: The source alleges -- and we stress alleges -- that Beyonce, 30, and Jay-Z, 42, "paid to have it constructed just for them."

But according to Lenox Hill's executive director, these "executive suites are available for any patient, including the food service and amenities provided to the Carter family." But in case you're wondering why everyone doesn't get such luxe accomodation, you have to be able to pay "the standard rate" to stay in the aforementioned suite -- and we're guessing "standard" is code for "steep."
