The power couple releasesd a the following statement today via Hov's blog Life and Times:
Hello Hello Baby Blue!
We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012.
Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven.
She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives.
We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.
Beyoncé & JAY Z
According to the Associated Press, proud papa Jay-z released the song Glory ft. B.I.C. on Life and Times today.
Through a rap verse, Jay-Z has confirmed the birth of "the most beautiful girl in the world" -- his newborn
daughter. Note how the song says featuring B.I.C. That's short for Blue Ivy Carter.
Reps for the superstars repeatedly declined requests for comment from The Associated Press about whether the birth had occurred, as first reported by E! News. But Jay-Z's sweet song gives fans the
details, and more.
In the song, Jay-Z mentions baby Blue being conceived in Paris (wonder if there's any connection to Ni**as in Paris?) and even reveals that Beyonce had a miscarriage at one point.
"Baby, I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was yo
u, you. Glory…
I wreak havoc on the world, get ready for part two, a younger smarter faster me, so a pinch of Hov, a whole glass of Bey…
Last time, the miscarriage was so tragic. We was afraid you’d disappear but nah, Baby you magic!
So there you have it, shit happens, just make sure the plane you on is bigger than your carry-on baggage.
Everybody goes through stuff, life is a gift, Love, open it up. You’re a child of destiny. You’re the child of my destiny. You’re my child with the child from Destiny’s Child. That’s a hell of a recipe."
The sound of a baby's cries ends the song, which is believed to be the newborn.
