A recent report published by Us Weekly gives us the great news: Beyonce welcomes baby girl! Many suppositions have been made in relation to the singer’s pregnancy, including the fact that she may not be pregnant, given her latest withdrawal from the press. In the end, the due date has come and the singer gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Blue Ivy Carter on Saturday.
Reporters had to pull a few strings to find out whether Beyonce was indeed giving birth this weekend or not, but they did a good job, after all. Although the superstar used the fake name Ingrid Jackson to check into Lenox Hill Hospital, reporters still managed to find her.
Blue Ivy Carter was born through scheduled C-section on Saturday. According to the couple’s declarations, Beyonce and Jay-Z have chosen to name their first child Ivy because of the significance that the Latin number IV has on their lives. The two are born on September 4 and December 4, they were married on April 4, 2008 and Beyonce’s latest album is entitled “4”.
Some observers at the Lenox Hill Hospital got the chance to see Jay-Z walking around the corridors of the hospital on Saturday morning. Based on their declarations, the rapper looked very happy. He was greeted by Beyonce’s family members, sister Solange, parents Tina and Mathew Knowles, who brought flowers with pink balloons and silver and black ribbons.
The first to confirm the news of the birth was singer Rihanna who congratulated the couple through her Twitter account. She wrote: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih”. Later on, several other celebrities have used their Twitter accounts to congratulate Beyonce and Jay-Z for the birth of their first baby. Russell Simmons, Jay-Z’s friend and Gwyneth Paltrow were among those who welcomed the baby girl to the world.
Some rumors claimed that Beyonce already gave birth to her baby at the beginning of the month. The news was denied by an anonymous source who told the press that the singer and the Roc Nation mogul spent New Year’s Eve dining at the Brooklyn restaurant Buttermilk Channel.
