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:

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!

Most of you guys sound like a bunch of idiots..I gave birth at that hospital in dec 2010, and they have very tight security there, but I highly doubt that the hospital would let beyonce's security run their hospital! Really?! You all believe this? I think this guy wanted his few minutes of fame and to sell his story to someone.

Totally digusted in the fact that they think "their" childs birth needed an entire maternity floor shut down ...while OTHER NEW PARENTS couldnt get to their babies ...in NICU.... shame on you B&J i have no respect for you as a human being..... what about ALL the other families/babies....shame on you...

@Lisa... It was on Enews! The father said all he wanted was an apology. Sorry but I would be less nice about it. I had a child in NICU. Things can go from good to bad in a blink of your eye.

If that's true, I'm mad at that. That's when I would be like Idgaf about their baby, I have 2 of my own. Take their baby out so I can see mine since they need special treatment. I'm not trying to be mean and I understand the whole security thing, but as a mother, I would've been pissed with the hospital. The man couldn't call the police or something because that's messed up

I'm glad things were peaceful for them. Their security team denied a father his right to see his premature twins in the NICU. I guess money makes you more important than others.

that is the stupidist name. lateesha, moesha, or mo'nique would have been better than that.

So the baby's first name is going to be blue? lol no offense but i dont think i would like to walk around with the name, blue. They should of named her Ivy blue instead, it sounds way better.

Avatar

I'm very happy for them and Baby Blue. I especially love the emotional song Glory that Jay made for the baby. It's beautiful. Congrats to them!

What the hell is wrong with celebrity parents , why can't they ever give their child a normal name ? Ivy is kinda cute but blue is this a child or a crayon ?
