I’m still not convinced the whole pregnancy wasn’t a sham, to be (reluctantly) honest. And she was supposed to be due in February, which may or may not suggest something…. Regardless, celebrations are in order. It’s a girl for singing superstar Beyonce (30) and her hip-hop mogul hubby, Jay-Z (42)!
And the name is…BLUE IVY CARTER!
Allegedly…, Ivy — or, sorry, Blue (everyone’s been mixing the name up, but Gwyneth set everyone straight on Twitter) — was born in New York yesterday (Saturday).
Good Morning America says Beyonce had a C-section…, and that they chose the name “Ivy” to signify the number “4,” or “IV,” since both Beyonce and Jay-Z were born on the 4th day of the month — Beyonce on September 4, Jay-Z on December 4. They also got married on April 4 (2008), and the title of Beyonce’s latest album is, of course, 4.
Did they choose the name “Blue” because they liked The Smurfs movie (spoiler: remember the baby’s name…)?
And, in case you didn’t know, “Carter” is Jay-Z/Shawn Carter’s last name….
Us Weekly learned that Jay-Z was seen happily pacing the hospital halls, and that Beyonce’s sister, Solange, and parents, Tina and Mathew Knowles, were there with “flowers…, pink balloons and silver and black ribbons.”
According to Us, Rihanna was the first to announce the news, on Twitter: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih.”
Well, Gorgeouses, this is major celeb baby news, and the music industry is celebrating!
Congrats to the family, and welcome to the world, Blue!
