Beyonce’s hometown paper, The Houston Chronicle, has reported that Beyonce and husband Jay-Z gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Saturday in New York. Beyonce delivered the baby girl via a scheduled c-section.
Sources say the couple has named their new bundle of joy Blue Ivy Carter.
“The most beautiful girl in the world,” Beyoncé’s sister, Solange Knowles, tweeted Sunday morning.
Beyonce, who was due in February, checked in to Manhattan’s Lenox Hill hospital on Friday after being spotted out and about in NYC on Thursday.
Fans of Beyonce and Jay-Z have been anxiously awaiting their new arrival. Beyonce, who first announced her pregnancy at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, was rumoured to have given birth over the New Year’s holiday, but was soon spotted having dinner with husband Jay-Z at a trendy Brooklyn restaurant, still pregnant.
We’re glad the Beyonce baby rumors can now be put to rest!
Congrats to the happy couple!
What do you think of the name Blue? That’s one we haven’t heard before!
