Beyoncé Knowles and her rapper husband Jay Z have officially welcomed their first child, baby girl Blue Ivy Carter into the world.
Celebrity pals such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Rihanna have already tweeted their congratulations to the couple, but no images have officially been seen as of yet. The staff at the Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan in a private wing where Blue Ivy was born were apparently asked to hand in mobile phones and any type of recording device they had on them before attending to the couple just in case images were leaked before family and friends had been to visit.
Bey’s little sister Solange has also commented that her niece is “the most beautiful girl in the world”.
According to sources baby B.I.’s middle name starts with roman numerals portraying the number Four, shown as IV, which represents both Beyoncé and Jay’s lucky number as they were both born on the 4th (September and December respectively) and were married on 4 April 2008.
Congrats guys – we can’t wait to see the pics!
