Mega Millions Mania! How Winning $640 Million Would Let You Live Like a Celeb Parent (Photos)Shana Aborn
Got your Mega Millions ticket yet?
The whole country is psyched for tonight’s lottery drawing with the country’s biggest jackpot at stake – a whopping $640 million at this writing, and the total could go even higher.
That’s a life-changing amount that would skyrocket you to the top of the 1% overnight and open the door to luxuries you never dared dream of.
You could start living the way many of your favorite celebrity parents do, spending money on items once thought out of your reach.
Like Beyonce here, you could give your baby’s nursery a $1 million makeover and fill it with platinum jewelry, a gold rocking horse, and furniture worth tens of thousands of dollars…and your bank account wouldn’t even feel it. Like Bey, you could also hire a host of nannies to watch over your darlings every so often while you step out for a spa day or date night.
Best of all, you could also follow the example of famous parents like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and use your money to do some good in the world as well.
What else could you do with that staggering sum? We offer some inspiration here from other wealthy parents.
And when you collect your winnings, maybe you could share a bit with your favorite Famecrawler bloggers?
Just a suggestion.
Check out our gallery now!
Luxury labor! 1 of 11Are you expecting? You could follow Jessica Simpson's example and spend $2 million on the birth without batting an eye. For that matter, you could do the same for the births of all your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren for generations!
Bigger brood! 2 of 11If you've been putting off having more children because you're worried about the cost of raising them, a Mega Millions win would take care of that. You could raise a Duggar-sized family comfortably - and leave them all a tidy sum in your will. You could also adopt children, like Brad and Angie.
Tot toys! 3 of 11Doting parents Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes lavish Suri with gifts. With your winnings, you could make your kids' rooms look like Barbie and LEGO museums.
Madonna’s mansion! 4 of 11The Material Girl just put this little shack on the market for $28 million. You could buy it - and have enough left over to get houses for a dozen of your closest friends.
Daily Disney! 5 of 11The "Modern Family" cast spent a day shooting at Disney, but with a big lottery win, you could treat your kids to Magic Kingdom vacations on every school holiday - Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Euro Disney and Disneyland Tokyo. Heck, you could even build your own park in the location of your choice. Disney Des Moines, anyone?
New Jersey neighbors! 6 of 11Being a multimillionaire would enable you to move to the luxurious suburbs Teresa Giudice, Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita call home. Have them over for drinks and antipasti, and you could be joining the cast of "Real Housewives" by next season!
Gorgeous gowns! 7 of 11Love the beautiful dresses Angelina Jolie and other famous moms wear to red-carpet events? Designers would fall over themselves to fill your wardrobe.
Total tatting! 8 of 11"Teen Mom" stars like Maci Bookout, Kail Lowry and Jenelle Evans love their ink. (Kail's new back tattoo is shown here.) With $640 million, you could cover every inch of your body with tats, have them all lasered off when you got tired of them, and start all over again many times over.
Private plane! 9 of 11Like John Travolta, you could take flying lessons and fly your own jet around the world. Hey, you could probably pay John himself to give you a lift or two.
Incredible invites! 10 of 11Like Nina Garcia, who tweeted this picture of the Oscars, you too could get exclusive invitations to all the best events.
Cakes on call! 11 of 11When "American Reunion"'s Alyson Hannigan needed a last-minute birthday cake for her daughter's 3rd birthday, Charm City Cakes - the bakery made famous on the show "Ace of Cakes" - volunteered to make this adorable confection. With a gigantic lottery win in the bank, you could ask Duff Goldman himself to make cakes for every birthday, anniversary, baptism, bar mitzvah and Arbor Day for the rest of your life.
