When it comes to Blue Ivy Carter, Oprah Winfrey is not the godmother. On Wednesday rumors began to swirl that Jay-Z and wifey Beyoncé bestowed gave Winfrey the honor and chose Hov’s homie Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith as the baby’s godfather. Still no word on whether or not Ty Ty will be Blue Ivy’s godfather, but when it comes to Oprah’s relationship with the baby the rumor is not true says the media queen’s bestie Gayle King.
“Let me just say, if that’s true, it is news to her. It is news to her. You know, she was heading to South Africa when baby Blue was born,” King said of the rumors on Friday on her “CBS This Morning” news show.
Blue Ivy was born on January 7 and has since caused quite the media storm. There has been lots of speculation on many aspects of her young life. “It’s absolutely not true that she’s the godmother,” King said. “She’s friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much. She’s working on sending them a baby gift. She hasn’t even had time to send a baby gift because she’s been away.”
Earlier this week, Bey’s buddy Kelly Rowland spoke to E! News about the baby. “She’s absolutely beautiful!” Rowland said about her pal’s new bundle of joy. “And I say that with such a huge grin! I’m so excited.
“We all just stared at her,” she added about meeting the baby for the first time. “I just stared at her. She is so beautiful.”
When asked what she bought little Ms. Carter, Kelly kept things on the hush. “That’s between me and Blue,” she said. “But you best believe her auntie will have her dressed to impress.”
Andrea Edmunds, the president of PoshTots, a designer of choice for celebrity parents looking to create a dream nursery, clued MTV News into some cool gifts that Baby Blue may have already gotten.
