Pregnancy Over: Beyonce Welcomes A Baby Girl!!
Rucuss staffJanuary 8, 2012
After several false alarms, Beyonce has finally welcomed her first child into the world.
It’s a girl! Beyonce, who had a scheduled C-section, reportedly named her Blue Ivy Carter. Beyonce and Jay-Z’s child was born at New York City’s Lennox Hospital. It has been the focus of media interest since the superstar checked in under the name Ingrid Jackson. The couple reportedly rented out the hospital’s entire fourth floor for $1.3 million.
News of the birth spread quickly amongst their friends with Rihanna tweeting “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih.”
Russell Simmons also tweeted the new parents: “congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z.”
According to the New York Daily News, security guards patrolled the hospital area. Lennox Hill also blacked out its surveillance cameras and windows so that no photos will be leaked in preparation for her delivery, ABC News reports. All employees had to turn in cell phones when they arrived to their shifts. There is also an increase in security outside of the hospital (for any fans who are thinking about showing up).
The birth of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s first child comes less than a week after the most recent burst of rumors that she had given birth. Twitter was on fire after rumors spread that Beyonce had the baby and named her Tiara May Carter, which was false.
Before that, there was the rumor that the whole pregnancy was in fact a sham. But she revealed that to also be false with the release of a video greeting from the set of “Countdown.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z tied the knot in April 2008 after a long courtship. Beyoncé memorably revealed she was pregnant onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.
We’re guessing its going to take months for a face shot of baby Blue. We sure hope she looks like Beyonce. Just sayin!
