Beyonce and Jay Z Welcome Baby Girl Blue

January 11, 2012

There’s no arguing that Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement at the 2011 VMA’s was one of the most talked about topics of last year, but now all talk is about the baby herself, Blue Ivy Carter. Beyonce and Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter brought their baby girl into the world on Saturday January 7th 2012. There was some confusion over the name at first, as Ivy Blue became a trending topic on Twitter, but when confirmed, Blue Ivy took over as the #1 talked about topic on the social networking site. Beyonce and Jay-Z released their official statement to E! on January 9th which read, “Hello Hello Baby Blue! We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7th 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7lbs and it was the best experience of both our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”

Along with the new addition to the Carter family came a new song from Jay-Z entitled “Glory”, which was released just days after the birth of his baby girl. The track is a dedication to daddy’s little girl, and even features the newborn’s cries. The track also shares some of the most personal moments of the couple’s lives, with lyrics such as “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic, we was afraid you’d disappear but nah baby, you magic.” We have to admit, this is a side of Jay-Z we have never seen before, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t loving every second of it. We wish all the best to the new parents, and a life of health and happiness to Baby Blue!
