Just a mere couple of months (or so it seems) after revealing her adorable baby-bump at the MTV Video Music Awards, Beyonce gave birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, on Saturday, January 7th, with her hip-hop mogul husband Jay-Z by her side. According to twitter, many celebrities were amongst the first to know of this A-list birth, including Rihanna who tweeted, “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih” at around 1:15am EST.
Little Blue was delivered via C-section, according to sources confirmed to E! News, in New York. E-Online also mentioned that while this name seems to be how Jay-Z is referring to his daughter to friends, no source has confirmed it as of yet.
The mostly private relationship between Jay-Z and Beyonce has dated back approximately 10 years. The mega-couple tied the knot in 2008, and their relationship was never one of those “made-for-TV” types (unlike many these days). Whether or not the couple decides to go super-public with the birth of their newborn child is still up in the air, but however the Carters decide to do so will most definitely mimic the classy ways of their past public maneuvers!
The best of luck to the Carter and Knowles families and their friends!
