One week after rumours started spreading that Beyoncé had giveen birth to her first child, we now know that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s child was actually born last night.
According to E! Entertainment Online, Beyonc ehas given birth in a private suite in the Lenox Hill Hospital on the Upper East Side of New York last night. E! has also said that the baby girls name is Blue Ivy Carter, after the incorrect version “Ivy Blue Carter” started trending on Twitter.
Close friends of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna and Russell Simmons, have added to confirmation of the Blue Ivy Carter’sbirth by tweeting messages of congratulations to her superstar parents.
Rihanna tweeted: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih” whilst Gwyneth Paltrow confirmed the baby’s name to her followers.
There hasn’t been any comment from either Beyoncé or Jay-Z’s spokespeople, most probably to try and protect the mother and child from the inevitably intense media attention.
Congratulations to Beyoncé and Jay-Z!
