Beyonce, Jay-Z Issue Statement on Daughter's Birth

by at . Comments

In a statement released just a few hours ago, Beyonce and Jay-Z officially confirmed that she gave birth to baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter, on Saturday.

The couple writes, jointly:

“Hello Hello Baby Blue! We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012.”

Jay and Bey say Saturday was the best day ever for them.

“Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives."

"We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”

Jay-Z released “Glory” - a new song he wrote as a tribute to baby Blue, and which even features her at the end - online earlier today. It's a cool song, and so sweet.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!

I'm slow on the draw here, but:
a) "extremely peaceful" - yeah, I'll bet waiting in the next room while your surrogate gives birth is really peaceful.
b) 'Blue Ivy' just sorta sounds like a euphemism for a medical condition. Sorry. but that was just my first impression.
I'd say the poor blameless child would be called 'Poison Ivy' by other children, but who am I kidding? She'll NEVER be teased...just spoiled as hell.

They did not say that! How in the h3LL is a planned c-section delivering a child naturally! You can't tell me that she went into labor naturally and they still had time to clear out the entire maternity ward. Congrats on the baby but B stop plucking lying.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are egotistical and obnoxious on all counts. Don't give a rat's behind what they named their bundle of joy. Give me a break. That kid is going to be soooooo messed up.
