Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z are happily married and expecting their first baby. To make room for their new addition, they have also been house hunting for new places (as well as remodeling old place in the Northeast by adding a nursery). But it seems to be the great real estate deals happening right now in the Sunshine State that has captured their attention while house hunting. The Hollywood Reporter shared the news on December 10th, 2011 that the celebrity couple were allegedly cruising Miami, Florida looking for a new property this past week. The house that peaked their interest most seems to be none other than the luxury home of Latin singer Ricky Martin.
They write, “A very pregnant Beyonce Knowles and husband Jay-Z appear to be prospecting new locales for their new addition. The couple made a highly-publicized trip to Miami last week for a little house-shopping.”
Accoring to the celeb gossip source, “TMZ reports the chart-topping couple toured Ricky Martin’s Miami Beach house, one of two the Latin singer owns in the Sunshine State.”
Real estate records show the oceanfront luxury estate is located in what the Hollywood Reporter calls, “the area’s well-heeled La Gorce Golf neighborhood, known locally as a golfer’s paradise, but perhaps more widely as a celebrity-dense enclave.”
Although Ricky Martin is gay, he is the father of two darling kids. For that reason, his old family home might be the perfect starter family house for Beyonce and Jay-Z — because it is already likely to be toddler proofed and play area equipped.
