Beyonce finally popped, giving birth to a baby girl named Blue Ivy Carter in New York City on Saturday, January 7, 2012.
Bey checked into Lenox Hill Hospital on New York’s Upper East Side on Friday night under the name Ingrid Jackson, says a hospital staff member. And, in typical baller status, Bey and her husband Jay-Z rented out the entire fourth floor of the hospital, at the cost of $1.3 million. No big deal or anything.
Moreover, hospital employees taped over security cameras and were forced to turn in their cell phones at the beginning of their shifts to keep security ultra-tight and prevent any photo leaks. Whoa!
Now, Bey’s hometown paper The Houston Chronicle has confirmed via a “close source” that Beyonce gave birth to a girl earlier on Saturday evening. Reportedly, both baby and mom are doing just fine.
Proud dad Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, was at the hospital where Beyonce reportedly birthed Ivy by c-section — and shortly after her arrival … J & B’s famous friends started sending out birth announcements on the Internet.
Rihanna tweeted, “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih”
Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons also took to Twitter, saying … “congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z.”
