Singerand Jay-Z have welcomed a baby girl and named her ‘Blue Ivy Carter’.
Beyonce’s pregnancy had received heavy publicity. Initially, it was thought of as fake with people saying she was just “pretending” to be pregnant, and a week before the delivery date, it was rumored that Beyonce had already given birth, but it became quite clear that Beyonce was still pregnant around the New Year’s time.
This time, however, the news of Beyonce giving birth is quite authentic and it has been confirmed by the celebrities’ reps. Some of the celebrity friends of Beyonce and Jay-Z have also congratulated the couple on Twitter. "Welcome to the world princess Carter!" singer and pal of the couple Rihanna tweeted. "Love Aunty Rih."
Their friend, Russell Simmons, also congratulated the happy new parents, tweeting, "Congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z.”
The news was also conveyed on E! and according to the details provided on the channel, Beyonce had a C-section. Beyonce and Jay-Z are booked at the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. According to the details, they paid a hefty $1.3 million to rent out a fourth floor on the hospital for the delivery.
Beyonce checked in by the name of Ingrid Jackson to avoid a lot of publicity during this time. Several security guards were also spotted patrolling outside the hospital. The staff at the Lenox Hill also acknowledged that a patient under the name of Ingrid Jackson had indeed checked into the hospital.
Beyonce worked hard even during her pregnancy. She did a tour in November and carried around her pregnancy with a lot of style. It is being expected that baby Blue Ivy Carter will also follow her mother’s footsteps and be a real style icon in the future.
