A father in America has thrown a lavish birthday party for his 15-year-old daughter

 

Thomas J Henry, from San Antonio in Texas, splashed out £4.2m for the bash which around 600 people attended.

It was held in a purpose-built 55,000 square-foot venue and decorated with 30-foot tall cherry trees.

The birthday girl, Maya, has more than 18,000 Instagram followers and is regularly pictured meeting celebrities, including One Direction, Justin Bieber, and even Hillary Clinton.

Her father Thomas, who runs a personal injury firm, said that he and his wife Azteca “wanted to give Maya an unforgettable night to mark her transition into young adulthood”.

During the evening, guests were treated to performances by Nick Jonas and Pitbull.

The star-studded event is surely one that the teenager won’t forget.

This isn’t the first time that we have heard about mums and dads treating their children to expensive presents.

Last year, one lucky seven-year-old girl became the proud owner of a £31.7m blue diamond, thanks to her daddy.

The 12.03-carat diamond was bought by Hong Kong tycoon Joseph Lau at auction.

Mr Lau confirmed that he had purchased the cushion-shaped stone for his little girl, renaming it “Blue Moon of Josephine” after her.

A UK survey carried out by NetMums last year found that many parents are choosing to cut back on household spending such as food or power bills to pay for presents.

It claimed that mums and dads are becoming increasingly competitive when it comes to buying gifts.

Also last year, a dad from Plymouth published a copy of an invoice he was sent after his child failed to attend a birthday party.

Derek Nash received the bill for £15.95 after his son couldn’t attend last minute.

The family claimed they had been left “out of pocket” from his absence.
