Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed a baby girl to the world this weekend!
The hot duo announced that they were expecting in the most shocking way when Beyoncé, 30, revealed her belly at MTV’s Video Music Awards in August of 2011. During her performance of “Love on Top” she ended with “Feel the love that’s growing inside of me” right before she opened her blazer to expose that she was expecting. In the audience, fans and friends cheered and congratulated hubby Jay-Z who could not seem to wipe the smile off of his face.
Blue Ivy Carter was the talk of the town as Tweets poured in from fans and celebrities across the world. A few to congratulate the couple were Rihanna, Russell Simmons, and Gwyneth Paltrow who tweeted “Welcome to the world, Blue. We love you already.”
Now that she is here, people everywhere have asked, “Why did the two choose Blue Ivy as their daughter’s name?” According to a GMA exclusive, the name ‘Blue’ comes from Jay-Z’s favorite color and ‘Ivy’ comes from the significance of the number 4 (IV) in roman numerals. Beyoncé and Jay-Z were born September 4th and December 4th and married on April 4th. Beyoncé’s latest album was also entitled ‘4.’
Observers at the NYC Lenox Hill Hospital reported to US Weekly that Jay-Z looked awfully happy walking through the halls of the 1.3 million dollar reserved floor of the hospital on Saturday morning. Beyoncé’s family was also spotted on the floor with pink balloons, flowers, and silver and black ribbons.
Congratulations to Beyoncé and Jay-Z for welcoming a healthy baby girl into their family.
