Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, welcomed their daughter Saturday night in New York. The singer, who rocked the Season 10 Finale of American Idol, has been surrounded by rumors concerning her pregnancy since she first unveiled it to the world at the MTV Video Music Awards this past summer. What are the stars’ famous friends tweeting about the new baby? Read on to find out.
Rumors began before Christmas that Beyoncé and Jay-Z had already welcomed their baby into the world. Saturday night the rumors were put to rest when they really did welcome daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, via scheduled c-section.
Blue Ivy’s birth has sent the Twitter world into overdrive with blessings from many of her parents’ famous friends.
Jay-Z collaborator Rihanna wrote, “Welcome to the world princess Carter!”, signing off with “Love Aunty Rih.”
Famous Beyoncé bestie, Gwyneth Paltrow wrote, “Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already.”
Beyoncé has been more open about her pregnancy than about her relationship with her rapper and media mogul husband. She first unveiled her pregnancy for paparazzi at the MTV Video Music Awards this past August. While performing later in the show she removed her suit jacket at the end of her performance to reveal her baby bump to the audience. The beaming mother and father were both captured in the moment, completely beaming for the world to see.
Blue Ivy’s name, according to MTV, is the result of words that have great meaning to the couple. Jay-Z’s masterpiece was The Blueprint and “Ivy” could represent the couples favorite number IV (four).
