Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z reportedly welcomed their daughter over the weekend, according to E! News.
The baby, named Blue Ivy Carter (although some outlets are saying her name is Ivy Blue Carter), was delivered on a private floor of New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital that the superstar couple had reportedly paid $1.3 million to rent out.
And while mom and baby recuperate, security is remaining high: Hospital workers have reportedly put tape over surveillance cameras, and employees’ mobile phones are being confiscated when they arrive for shifts, sources tell the New York Daily News.
There had to have been a musical motive to naming the child Blue (rhymes with “Boo?”).
While it’s not likely the name was inspired by albums by Joni Mitchell or Weezer, we think that every time the girl does a cute drawing they can call it The Blueprint and The Blueprint II after her dad’s landmark albums.
Plus, it would have been too weird to name the girl Hova-ette.
