Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z have reportedly decided they want Oprah Winfrey to be their newborn daughter’s godmother, according to Media Takeout.


A source close to the couple says they wanted to give the honour to someone not already related to one-month-old Blue Ivy Carter, ruling out Beyoncé’s sister, Solange Knowles.


As for the little girl’s godfather, the new parents have reportedly asked Jay-Z’s best friend, Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith.
