Beyonce Gives Birth to Baby Girl Named Blue Ivy Carter

Congratulations to Beyonce and Jay Z, who are the proud parents of a baby girl born on Saturday night.

The couple named their daughter...wait for it... Blue Ivy Carter. Pretty normal right?

Gwyneth Paltrow, who is BFF with Beyonce and Jay tweeted: "Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already."

Russell Simmons also confirmed the news by congratulating the couple on Twitter by writing, “congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z.”

Beyonce reportedly checked into New York's Lenox Hill Hospital on Friday night under the alias name of Ingrid Jackson. It is reported that B gave birth following a scheduled caesarean section.

B and Hova rented the entire fourth floor of the hospital for a whopping $1.3 Million dollars and on Saturday night even doctors and nurses were barred from entering the fourth floor. That obviously got some docs complaining. But it's Beyonce and Jay Z so they can obviously do what they want, right?

Over the Christmas holiday, there were rumors that Beyonce had gone into labor, but obviously the people making up the rumors were about a week off. Originally many thought that Beyonce would be giving birth in February according to when she announced her pregnancy, but leave it to B and Hova to throw everyone off.

This is the first child for both Beyonce and Jay. Congrats to the happy couple! That seemed like a pretty quick pregnancy. Jessica Simpson, on the other hand, has been pregnant for what seems to be a lifetime. We're ready for you Jessica!
