Beyoncé and Jay-Z did not register at Babies ‘R’ Us for Blue Ivy — they registered at Babies ‘R’ Fabulous! To go with the days-old, blessed cherub’s consortium of (what one can only assume are) freakum diapers, fans made of money, and pre-determined stage names like Blue Fierce and Blue Bérry, the new parents will also bestow on their spawn the following extravagant gifts, thePost reports:
1. “[A] solid-gold, handmade horse from Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka that Jay-Z bought for $600,000.” Read more…
The most amazing feeling I feel, words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real / Baby, I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you / The most beautiful-est thing in this world / is daddy’s little girl
New papa Jay-Z has released a track called “Glory (Featuring B.I.C.)” with two-day-old baby Blue Ivy Carter cooing and crying in the background. (Listen to the full song after the jump!) And if that’s not enough to make you cry, then listen to him sing about the couple’s miscarriage and how scared they were this time around: “We were afraid you’d disappear, but no, baby, you’re magic.” My eyes are wet with tears and dammit, it’s not even my kid. What an amazing baby gift for Jay-Z’s new little girl. Listen to the full song, after the jump! [Styleite] Keep reading »
Now that older sister Beyonce is all busy with her baby Blue Ivy (can’t even with that name), it’s time for younger sis Solange to break out of her shadow. That’s why we think it’s no coincidence that the same weekend that Bey-Z finally had their baby, Solange announced she’d signed with Next Model Management. “Artistic expression is invaluable to me in all walks of my career and I am so excited to continue to develop this path along such an amazing team at Next Model Management. I feel right at home working with people who have worked beside such creative forces in the world.” Oh sure, whatever Solange. Just take a little bit of that spotlight back for yourself. We won’t tell anyone. [FashionIndie]
It’s a girl! After weeks of speculation, Beyoncé gave birth last night, January 7th, at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City via C-section. Some media outlets have reported that the baby’s name is Ivy Blue Carter, but other sources — including the couple’s best friend forever, Gwyneth Paltrow — have confirmed that her name is actually Blue Ivy. So, what’s the deal with that name? Naturally, there is a significance! The Blueprint is, of course, Jay-Z’s classic album, while Ivy is believed to be a reference to the Roman numeral IV. 4 is the name of Beyonce’s most recent, and hugely popular, album, both Jay and Bey were born on the 4th, and the couple was married on the 4th. So there ya go. Blue Ivy, a girl that will no doubt run the world.
