Blue Ivy Carter’s brand new baby photos have set Twitter a flurry with tons of digital ooh-ing and aah-ing. Both “Blue Ivy” and her famous parents “Beyonce and Jay-Z” were US and worldwide trending topics this evening and according to third-party buzz tracker, Ice Rocket, the hashtag “Blue Ivy” itself was clocking in at about 30 mentions on Twitter per minute at one point. That adds up to a lot of buzz!
Celebrities have jumped in on the little bundle of joy’s debut. Aunt Solange Knowles shared on Twitter “THE PROUDEST AUNT IN THE WORLD….OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD! #HelloBlue ))http://helloblueivycarter.tumblr.com/” and TV personality and mommy herself La La Vasquez ReTweeted Solange and added, “Beautiful beyond words!”
Earlier today, Bee and Jay released photos of the adorable baby on their own Tumblr. The text on the blog simply reads, “We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this this beautiful time in our lives. The Carter Family.” The pictures emerged shortly after news broke that the famous couple had started proceedings to trademark Blue Ivy’s name. Bee and Hov filed an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to reserve their daughter’s name for use in the future. The patent is intended to prevent the use of Blue Ivy’s name by non related parties.
