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!
