It’s a girl for Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z. The couple welcomed their first child together on January 7th, 2012. The singer and her husband named their daughter Blue Ivy Carter, (At least that’s what Jay-Z is telling pals at this point—the couple’s reps have not immediately responded to calls seeking comment.)
Friend and music mogul Russell Simmons was among the first to celebrate the arrival, tweeting the new parents: “congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z.”
Singer Rihanna tweeted last night: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih.”
The Daily News says Beyonce and Jay-Z paid more than $1 million to rent out the fourth floor at Lenox Hill, and security was so tight even doctors and nurses couldn’t get upstairs.
The singer reportedly checked into the hospital on Friday night under the name “Ingrid Jackson.”
Congrats to the Carter’s!
