Blue Ivy Carter Born To Proud Parents Jay-Z & Beyonce
Blue Ivy Carter is born to proud parents Jay-Z & Beyonce on Saturday 7th 2012.
When Beyonce announced that she was pregnant (see Beyonce pregnant) the world was caught by surprise.
Over the weekend reports were coming in that Beyonce had given birth on Saturday night at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan.
Jay-Z was at her side as she gave birth, allegedly by caesarian section after checking into the private hospital on Friday.
They have named the baby Blue Ivy Carter seemingly because Blue has connotations for Jay-Z with his Blueprint franchising and Ivy because it represents the number 4 (IV in Roman numerals) which has connotations for Beyonce.
Beyonce was born on the 4th September, her mother was born on 4th January, Jay-Z was born on 4th December and they were married on 4th April. She also named her latest album 4.
Carter is because Jay-Z’s real name in Shawn Carter.
Jay-Z and Beyonce are officially music royalty after shifting more than 75 million albums between them and collaborating on the ultra-successful “Crazy in Love”.
Although no official statement has been issued yet, the twittersphere has been abuzz including from those close to the family and Beyonce herself.
