(All About Beyonce And Jay-Z’s New Arrival)
Jay-Z once rapped that he might name his daughter Brooklyn Carter, but turns out that was just a joke. Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby was born on Saturday (January 7) in New York at Lenox Hill Hospital, and her name is Blue Ivy Carter. Beyoncé shocked viewers around the world back in August when she not-so-subtly announced her pregnancy on our VMA stage.
Rumors have been swirling about the sex of the new bundle of joy since Beyoncé’s close friend and former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland let it slip that “it” might be a “she.” “I have no idea what I’m going to buy Beyoncé at the baby shower because Jay is going to buy that little girl every single thing possible,” she told told U.K. news agency Bang Showbiz. “She won’t be spoiled, but she will be very well looked-after.”
Fans are just as excited for Jay and B’s bundle of joy. MTV News spoke to some of them recently, and many said that they expect the newborn to jump right to the top of the celebrity baby power list. “A power baby, obviously,” one fan said of the youngster’s assumed superstar status, while another added, “It’s gonna be a pretty cool baby, that’s for sure. Probably gonna run New York City by the time he’s 13 or 14.”
Beyonce’s delivery date has been rumored for weeks now, and when it was officially announced fans immediately reacted on Twitter, with many sharing their opinions on the baby’s name.
“Considering Beyonce and JayZ are so private we might not ever know the baby’s real name or see a picture,” @RaeAlexa wrote.
