Congrats to Jay-Z and Beyonce on healthy baby girl ... We are waiting for the official announcement ... what's her name?
I guess that I have to use the dad's age as an excuse to post Beyonce's baby announcement on this 35 & over blog ... LOL ... HE IS over 40 after all :) On the other hand, the diva mom has had her 1st baby at the ripe age of 30 ... God Bless and HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Beyonce and JayZ (Shawn Carter) on the birth of their baby girl, Ivy Blue Carter ... Well, there has been confusion as to whether the baby's name is Blue Ivy or Ivy Blue; USMagazine.com says that Beyonce confirmed that it is Blue Ivy and the rest of the Internet says Ivy Blue. Good old MTV is protecting themselves either way by launching their blog post as Ivy Blue, though Blog title says Blue Ivy (post tags say Ivy Blue). The unusual name is confusing us Bey and Jay! Can you help the world get it right? WAIT, it looks like Gwyneth Paltrow got it right for us :)
Regardless ... it is just a name and the important fact is that Beyonce's baby girl has been born healthy and she is ok, too ... right? Yet, there has not yet been an official announcement from their PR (at the time of this blog post) and we want to see that the baby and mommy are doing well.
The funny thing is that no one has announced the time of birth, length and height of Beyonce's baby, but there have been plenty of sources to share the good news online. The Internet is flooded with articles, social network and blog posts about the presumed blessed event. Twitter went crazy and is now trending "Congrats To Beyonce And Jay-Z" after celebrities like Russel Simmons, Rihana, etc. posted their congrats on Beyonce's baby. Google News is plentiful releases and news about Beyonce's baby girl.According to nydailynews.com, globalgrind.com and the ABCnews.com video above, Beyonce gave birth late Saturday night (1/7/2012) by scheduled C-Section the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. The kicker is that JayZ paid a whopping $1.3 million to rent out the entire 4th floor of the Lenox Hill Hospital as the their baby's birth suite. The security was so tight that even doctors did not have their phones to check on patients (WOW) and parents were unable to get in and see their children as a result of this ... there has been much controversy over that situation, but I say the hospital should have been better prepared or said "no" to such arrangements.
Regardless, this is an exciting time for Jay-Z and Beyonce as new parents!
Congrats and ENJOY your sweet baby girl because she will grow up too quickly. As I sit here writing this blog post, I am watching my 1 year old walking and playing with his toys as cutely as my 18 year old did 17 years ago ... the time goes fast!
In fact, seems like it was just yesterday that Beyonce announced her pregnancy on the MTV video music awards and now the baby's here.
C'est la via!
UPDATE 1/10/2012 - Beyonce's posted a statement that clarified that the baby's name is BLUE IVY CARTER and that she delivered naturally (although all of the articles say C-Section?). Proud daddy - Jay-Z - immediately released GLORY - new rap song with baby Blue's voice in it ... Listen to it HERE at Beyonce's website.
UPDATE 2/10/2012 - Jay-Z and Beyonce post pictures of baby Blue Ivy on Tumblr and their websites w/ a note that thanks everyone for respecting their privacy. Jay-Z and beyonce DID NOT get paid for their baby's 1st pictures, but plan to (TM) their baby's name for potential product line.
In Motherly Love,
Mother Baby Child
