Blue Ivy Carter: Beyonce & Jay-Z's Newborn Daughter?

Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z have reportedly welcomed a baby girl named Blue Ivy Carter!

The 30-year-old entertainer gave birth on Saturday (January 7) via a schedule C-section, according to E! Beyonce‘s reps have yet to confirm the news.

“Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih,” family friend Rihanna tweeted.

Beyonce announced to the world that she was pregnant on the red carpet at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in August by holding her baby bump.

Reports surfaced over New Year’s weekend that she had given birth to a baby girl named Tiana May, but they were shot down by Bey‘s sister Solange on Twitter.

Congratulations to the happy family – if the news is true!!!

    A baby girl! This will be one spoilt rotten baby girl. Just sayin.

  • emmaa

    In seriousness though this is nice news. Congrats to Bey and Jay.

  • roro

    yes congrats to the surrogate! I wonder what the girl will think when she know what people say about her and about her fake parentts

  • Sean

    A C-section? Guess she didn’t want her thing stretched out

  • Sue Denim

    If she had a C-section she’s not the first woman to have it not will she be the last to do it so let’s not judge that, it’s just disrespectful to those that do and no they aren’t all rich.

    Anyway, all that rubbish aside CONGRATS to them! Very sweet.

  • miapocca

    4 months pregnant in August, should have barely been showing for a first timer, but people carry differently

    –She was therefore jumping up and down in her first trimester quite intensely, thats so scary to know

    –hope the baby came out okay and head and everyhting was well shaped considereing how much mummy was jumping up and down

    –travelling by air during the last month of the pregnancy

    -Beyonce is one strong woman

    –elective c sections..all these obgyn for teh stars should come underder scrutiny just as the precription docs in hollywierd

  • miapocca

    time fot jay z to start owning up to his other kids…cant imagine how a woman could be happy with a man who neglects or will not publicly acknowledge his other kids..


    next up is:




  • Lou

    So great for them. Regardless of rumours of how the child was born, she will be so loved and thats all that matters. Congrats!

  • nes

    arghh the name is just awful!

  • Lola

    I think that stars shouldn’t lie to their fans.

    Fans bring them money.
    Shame on Bey.

  • Sam

    A baby is always a reason to celebrate. Congrats!

  • http://@MrsC1one Tesi J

    It’s actually Blue Ivy Carter… Congrats to them!

  • cw

    hope that kid doesnt have her dad’s nose OMG

  • kallie

    i’ll never say a bad word abt a baby because thats nothing but good news.. but we all now know she really wasnt pregnant!

  • gglover128

    Congrats to them both no matter how the baby was born :)

  • sillyme

    I think she was faking the pregnancy, even eating differently and using other means to make it look like she was gaining in other parts of her body, but the baby is born and it is theirs, so time to move on. I wouldn’t be surprised if the surrogate mother didn’t know whose baby it was.

  • Jude

    Congrats Bee :)

  • sammy

    congrats on the bubba – in typical celebrity style they’ll be getting away with the fake pregnancy. no wonder they feel untouchable.

    i still think its nuts tho’.

  • chris

    People should stop saying that beyonce wasn´t pregnant. I am not defending Beyonce I am defending the kid. The effects that this rumors may have on the child are serious, so let it go and let beyonce and jay z handle the situation.
    Besides even if she wasn´t pregnant, nobody knows the real reason why she would invent this lie. So please let it go…

  • http://alicealice_oh alicealice_oh

    IVy – there is ‘IV’ Blue from Blueprint.. congrats bey&jay! ;)

  • Marianne

    I think Ivy Blue is a super adorable name. And personally I think Beyonce was really pregnant, did a little padding in the beginning, to make it more noticeable,and it got out of hand. Either way, that baby is going to be well loved.

    Also, she could have had a C-Section because of a complication in the birth, she could have been in labor for too long. We don’t know. Don’t Judge.

  • Alrighty then

    I don’t like the name. It’s not the worse celeb name but it’s still not that great to me. Ivy reminds me of Poison Ivy and Blue? Seriously? Why not purple?!? I mean REALLY SON. If you’re gonna name your freakin’ daughter a color name, at least choose one like pink or red….. XD

  • rt3r44

    Weird she said she was pregnant in Aug. though and she wasnt even that big either,how she give birth already

  • Britney


  • gffy

    Fake preggo give a fake birth to a girl..
    Good job boynce for covering up so good

  • Luiza

    Sorry haters she was really pregnant.

    People really believe that she paid a fortune for an entire hospital shut up and pretend that was her that was lying on the desk of the hospital.

    A lot of people knew about this pregnancy! She had several professionals around her, you think she’d turn to each of them and say, “Okay, give me your bank account and not tell anyone that my belly looks fake.”

    Only anonymous people were saying that her belly looks fake. HATERS, fans of Britney and Rihanna.

    GET OVER IT! She is now a happy mommy.

  • Hold It

    Aunty Rih???? Keep that Baby as far away from that STRIPPER!!!
    Congrats Bey & Jay!

  • Camilla

    @roro and all the people that liked that post are idiots. Even if Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s baby was delivered by a surrogate, biologically the baby’s parents would still be B and J as surrogacy involves taking the egg of a female (Beyoncé) and fertilizing it with the sperm of a male (Jay-Z) and implanting it into the uterus of the surrogate. Just goes to show how stupid these people who make up and spread these rumours are.

  • dooliloo

    congratulations to the surrogate who had the baby for Beyonce and JayZ.. you get your pay day now! hard to believe she had a “baby” today when she was apparently walking around in SKY HIGH HEELS and eating oysters the night before. lol.. there have been blind items around, talking about this for the last few months. SHE was not pregnant (didn’t want to hurt her figure), they had a surrogate — next will come the AMAZING PICTURES how she lost her baby weight. *wink wink*….

  • a fan

    Congrats to the Carters!!! I love the name. God bless them. =)

  • Qiana

    Dude people shut up. Who in the hell fakes a pregnancy? Name one person you know that would do that? She was pregnant, and she had her baby. It was obvious.

    Her hands were swollen, her feet were swollen, and so was her face.

  • Heather

    congrat to beyonce and jay

  • Heather

    Congrat to Beyonce

  • Jade

    You do know that certain medications can cause swollen face and feet. But I’m more confused about the timeline. I thought Beyonce said her baby was due in February or did I read that somewhere?

  • Blanca

    It’s Blue Ivy Carter!!!!!
    Gwyneth Paltrow just twitt

  • Luabloe

    I’m sorry but it IS shocking to use a surrogate mother!!!!! Why would another woman risk her LIFE to give birth to a kid you’re not willing to damage your body for???
    These people are disgusting, seriously…And paying the hospital to have the whole floor to yourself is just plain ridiculous, i wouldn’t want to see that woman even if she gave birth in the same hospital than me; like everybody cares about them….
    Open your eyes “Bey” and “Jay”, you’re not the center of the world, you’re stupid and self indulged, people don’t give a fµck about you…..

  • a fan

    thanks Bianca. Still love the name. I wander if we’ll know the weight and all or maybe well just have to wait till TMZ find the birth certificate like they did for the marriage license once its filed. lol. Seriously, I am so happy for this wonderful couple to have such a blessing.

  • ESP

    I like Bey, but she did not handle this correctly.
    When rumors started after that European tv show, her camp should have gone into major pr mode. Pr is part of the game, so don’t give that oh her right to privacy, wanting to keep her privacy at this specail time in her life…
    All Bey needed to do was have a print interview and not address these rumors. Just have an interview about her life now,, and possible House fo Derion kids clothing line…let interviwer feel her baby bump, take some pics if differnt clothes. Wear some form fitting. Some sheer there at baby bump. Chaging in front of staff .
    Now there is always a ?

    How come Bey did not a big baby celeb blowout shower???
    Ok, there is nothing this wants, but pr pr pr. Clebs could have given money and Bey could ahve taken that money and given it to baby .kid charities. Aswww, celebs giving to charity..,,all get pr there.

    NEXT, and I am Black AMerican , mixed, generationally mixed, but ummm no way no how Bey-A Back AMericna, with some Creole from her mother, but her dad is all Black and Jay-Z who is 100 % Black, so no way they can have a mixed looking, Creole, very light, small nosed baby.
    IMPOSSIBLE. Bey’s sister’s little boy is mixed looking. Solange is ugly and looks Black like their dad. I am not being mean. Solange is average looking and makes herself look ulgy with her style.
    Solnage’s ex was a Black guy but light and kind of a mixed look.
    If Bey’s mom, Tina, a Creole, had married a White man, pure White or married a White Creole, or someone mixed, her kids would have come out on the other side. Beys’ dad is all Black.
    NEXT, is Bey going to do a Micheal Jackson. Those kids of Micheal’s are not his biological kids. They are his kids. He bought and paid for them . A Black man like Micheal, not mixed, does not ahve three pure White , 100% all Caucasian kids.
    Black men genes are stronger than Black women. That is Black women, if they marry White, they kids tend to look more mixed or all White. See Eartha Kitts daughter. Not all of the time. Depends on how strong the Black women’s genes are. Some have kids who look brownish. Sone Black guys, fewere though, kids look mixed or go as White-Derek Jeter, Kris Humpheries. Their dads are not that Black though. Quincy Jones kids look White and go as White by Peggy lipton.
    Quincy is really a Black guy. It really depends.
    Still , the kids HAVE to MUST have some look, eyes, color, slight skin color, smile, expressions, laugh, voice, mouth sahped, like their paretns. Micheal Jackosn’s look, not jsut skin color, but no eye shape , smile, nothing like him. Earhta Kits White daughter looks just like her, only thing is Kit the daughter is White, blond.

  • ESP

    Oh Paula Pattons ;s looks 100% White, blond. BUT Palua is Biraical, ixed.
    The child looks jsut like Gloria Loring, Robin Thicke’s mother.
    I do not know if Paula Pattons ‘s mother is White Blond.
    It is usually Black guys who pick White women. I doubt, would be surprised if Palau Patton’s mom is nBlack, dad is White.

  • PaulyneZI

    This is Blue Ivy Carter ;)

  • ESP

    Naming the child Blue is kind of dumb. Just like Harper Seven, Apple, Banjo, Morrocan.

    Blue is an old name in cleb world that stunned celeb world so Bey messed up here in tyring to go for originality.

    Elijah Blue Allmam, Gregg Allman and Cher ‘s sond was born about 37 years ago.

  • Lola

    REALLY JJ?! Remove my first comment why? I’m pretty sure someone else said the same thing. I hope the SURROGATE and child are doing OK.

  • sneg

    @ESP: You’re point is what? Was it necessary to get into the racial stuff? I don’t care if you are black why even bring that up!! I think you’ve been thinking about Beyonce and her life way too much. Move on friend!


    Why would she name her baby Blue Ivy after Jay’s former girlfried Blu Cantrell?

  • Lila

    I wonder if she had a c section and why? I am not judging, I myself was going for a natural birth and eneded up w- a c section and it worked out okay for me. But I do know it changed my body quite a lot. I wonder why she would schedule it. Who knows

  • Lila

    and whats up w- the surrogat ething- so random- she had a normal pregnancy- why would anyone even have that random rumor? Just cause she carried small? so did Jessica Alba but no one accused her!

  • Amanda

    How does Gwyneth Paltrow always manage to get herself involved in publicity that has nothing to do with her? Is she now working as Beyonce’s publicist?

  • http://shalysewright shalyse

    okay for one ,stop with this “surrogate mother ” and she faked the pregnancy stuff because,OVBIOUSLY she didnt, i dont think she’d want to hurt her career like that, and really there would be no point to lie anyways. All of the beyonce ” HATERS” are probably just jealous of her beauty,fame, and fortune. Just because her belly apparently wasnt that big means NOTHING. everyones different. and because she had a c-section means nothing either! and personally i think blue ivy carter is a beautiful name! so all you beyonce ” haters” stop hatin,because its just jealousy. why can’t you just be happy for them…. #teamBey

  • ok

    @ESP: Solange’s ex husband has a white mother. Yes, he is biracial hence the reason her son looks like he does. I do agree that Beyonce and Jay-z’s baby will not look like Solange’s son–but, genetics is really something else. We’ll see when the the baby is five and they finally decide to present her to the world for the first time.

  • Candi

    Congrats Jay and Bee!!!
