The weekend arrival of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter hasn't left everyone feeling overjoyed. The New York State Health Department, for example.

Officials are looking into complaints concerning treatment of maternity patients and families during Beyoncé's controversial stay at Manhattan's Lenox Hill Hospital.

"We've received two complaints that we're looking into today," a spokesperson said, adding, "Neither of them was from people who were involved in the situation."

"One was from someone who read about it in the media and the other was anonymous. So we have no person we can interview or talk to about it."

"But at this point, we are reviewing the situation."

After the megastar couple welcomed Blue on Saturday night, the New York Daily News reported that a Brooklyn man was barred from seeing his premature newborn twins in hospital NICU areas due to Beyonce's security team's presence.

More criticism followed from other patients and expectant moms who alleged that the circus surrounding Beyonce giving birth was disruptive to patient care.

Adoring new parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z have taken baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter home from New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital, the medical center has confirmed.

The family left under cover of darkness at 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Observers noted a procession of vehicles with blacked-out windows leaving from the hospital’s side gate in the middle of the night, according to the N.Y. Daily News.

The ecstatic couple's 7-lb daughter was born late Saturday in the Big Apple. They called the birth "emotional and extremely peaceful," adding, "we are in heaven."

Jay even wrote a song about Blue.

"It was the best experience of both of our lives," Beyoncé and Jay-Z said. "We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support."

Beyonce gave birth after the superstar couple reportedly arranged major security measures that were criticized by some others visiting in the hospital.

The couple said in a statement that Blue was delivered naturally, despite reports from some sources that she had a planned c-section. It's a bit of a mystery.

Rihanna did it. Gwyneth Paltrow did it. Russell Simmons did it. THG did it. Millions of fans nearly shut down Twitter doing it. Congratulate Beyonce on giving birth, that is.

Michelle Williams, a member of Destiny's Child, did not and will not, however.

The well wishes have poured in for Beyonce and Jay-Z since they welcomed daughter Blue Ivy Carter Saturday, and Williams has taken heat for not joining in.

Her rationale is simple: Because she'd rather do it in person.

Destiny's Child

Kelly Rowland has not Tweeted anything either, FYI.

Says Michelle Williams to her Twitter critics:

"Let's get ONE thing straight... I do NOT have to say congrats to someone when they're NOT EVEN ON on twitter...ESPECIALLY when I talk or email them all the time."

"Or when I'll be physically present as well. My friendship with people aren't always for twitter. Respect that and get a LIFE!!! Enjoy this FINE day!!! God bless!!!!"

In a follow-up Tweet, Williams said, "This is a beautiful, precious, private time between two people and excitement is to be expected but NOT disrespect!"

And to end the mini-rant, Williams used this hash tag: "#churchdismissed."

Woman's got a point, you gotta admit. Amen to that. Preach on, MW.

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.”

Beyonce and Jay

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!

Gwyneth Paltrow saves the day.

Just one day after Beyonce gave birth, her famous BFF has clarified a major detail online, revealing the correct name of Bey's beautiful newborn daughter.

Some sources reported the name one way, while others flipped the little one's first and middle names. But thanks to Gwyneth's Tweet, we know ...

It's Blue Ivy Carter, not Ivy Blue Carter!

Jay and Bey

It's all semantics really. We liked the name Ivy Blue, but Blue Ivy also has a cool, different ring to it. More importantly, she has two very loving, protective parents.

Not to mention, she's already one of the most famous celebrity babies of all time. We can't wait until the photos are released in the tabloids ... which won't happen.

Ever.

This is a couple that waited years to confirm they were even married. Wait, that didn't even take place. Public records proved it, not the couple. You get the idea!

Congrats again to Jay, Bey and baby Blue!

Beyonce gave birth to a beautiful baby girl yesterday.

Seriously, it happened. This isn't just a Twitter rumor.

Ivy Blue Carter was born in New York City via c-section.

Aww. Beyonce famously announced her pregnancy on stage at MTV's Video Music Awards back in August, and since then, fan anticipation for the baby has grown by the day.

Proud dad Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, was at the hospital where Beyonce gave birth to Ivy. Shortly thereafter, congratulations came pouring in.

Rihanna wrote, "Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih." Russell Simmons Tweeted simply, "Congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z."

SO much so that Twitter even tried to name the baby girl Tiana May Carter last month. We think they picked out a nicer name themselves in Ivy Blue. Agree?

NOTE: Conflicting reports, including from MSNBC and E!, say the name is actually Blue Ivy Carter. The couple's going to have to clear this up at some point!

Either way, congratulations to the happy family!!

Sometimes, not knowing your celebrity gossip will hurt you.

Apparently, an Ohio man PAID THE PRICE for not knowing Beyonce and Jay-Z got married a few years ago, getting stabbed on New Year Eve as a result.

Ronald Deaver, 31, of Parma, Oh., was arrested and charged with felonious assault for allegedly stabbing a 48-year-old man following an argument.

Police detectives told a local Fox station that the fight began because the victim did not know that singer Beyonce's husband is rapper Jay-Z. Really.

Officials were called following the stabbing and the victim was quickly taken to a local hospital. He was later transferred to another facility and is in good condition.

No word on whether the two men knew each other, whether alcohol was involved, why the attacker got so mad, or if the victim knows Beyonce is still pregnant.

Despite what Twitter tries to convince us with its "Beyonce gives birth" proclamations, and as cute as the name Tiana May Carter might be, Beyonce is still pregnant.

One of the most hyped celebrity babies of all time has yet to arrive. 

You can't believe everything that you read on social media. Beyonce and Jay Z were totally spotted dining at Brooklyn's Buttermilk Channel on New Year's Eve.

Her baby bump was present and accounted for. Rumor quashed.

Jay-Z and Beyonce's baby is due in February.

The rumor started after the luxurious birthing suite at New York City's St. Luke's hospital was reserved last week, and "hospital staff" claimed it was for Beyonce.

Gossip spread like wildfire online, as these things have a way of doing, but rest assured, the beautiful bun in that oven will be baking for another month or so.

If that changes - or if Twitter tries to induce labor early - we'll let you know.

Rumors about Beyonce giving birth are currently blowing up Twitter, but have yet to be confirmed by the singer, husband Jay-Z, or any reputable source for that matter.

So ... there you are.

The (very possibly made-up) consensus seems to be that Beyonce welcomed a girl into the world this week, and that the little bundle of joy is named Tiana-May Carter.

Twitter makes up cute names at least.

The rumors we've read online - again, these are just rumors from social media, not even celebrity gossip sources - say she was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in New York City, and overnight, word spread that she had delivered a daughter.

Multiple outlets have picked up the story, but all cited the growing buzz on Twitter as the source and nothing more. She's due in February, so it's probably baseless chatter at this point, but also not impossible for her to give birth early.

Twitter also made Jon Bon Jovi dead recently. At least this is a nicer rumor.

Either way, the final countdown, which began after Beyonce's pregnancy reveal at the MTV VMAs, to the birth of the most famous celebrity babies in years is either over, or close to being over. We'll keep you posted as we learn more!

Jay-Z is getting in touch with his feminine side these days.

The 42-year-old dad-to-be is supporting Beyonce's pregnancy any way he can - and that includes dieting with her! The duo are maintaining a "partially vegan diet" and that "Jay's trying to be disciplined, and he needs the energy to support her," Us says.

If that's even halfway true, it's pretty sweet.

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Beyonce, 30, isn't going to let herself go just because she's expecting, even if she is eating for two these days. "I've been really conscious [about food]," she said.

"I've been trying my best not to lose control!"

Jay and Beyonce's commitment to healthy living seems to be paying off in more ways than one. A source they were dancing up a storm at Hollywood's Spare Room club: "They were loved up and sweet together [and] partied until 4 a.m.!"

Whatever "loved up" means, it sounds romantic. The next night, the paid hung out with Serena Williams, Kanye West and friends at Watch The Throne's afterparty.

Who said pregnancy would slow her down? Always great to hear about this awesome couple. They haven't revealed the sex of the baby, but it's totally a girl.
