Congratulations to Beyonce and Jay-Z who welcomed a baby girl late Saturday night at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
According to the New York Daily News, Beyonce checked into the Manhattan hospital Friday night under the name “Ingrid Jackson.” The superstar couple’s infant daughter was named Blue Ivy Carter and arrived via Caesarean Section with rapper husband Jay-Z at his wife’s side.
Jay-Z took every precaution to ensure the safety and comfort of his newborn daughter by spending $1.3 million to rent out and entire fourth floor of the hospital. Hallways were cleared for the musicians and waiting rooms were closely guarded by their bodyguards. Reportedly the hospital staff was asked to turn off their phones and security cameras were covered with tape.
Beyonce’s sister, proud aunt Solange, announced the arrival of her new niece on Twitter yesterday.
“The most beautiful girl in the world.”
Beyonce had announced her pregnancy onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards last August.
The Houston Chronicle reports that mom and baby are both doing well.
