Beyonce On Giving Birth to Blue Ivy Carter: 'It was the Best Experience'

Somehow, Beyonce is seeing past the excruciating pain of childbirth and remembering having a baby as “the best experience” of her life.

Moms-to-be, remember that statement while you’re having a human being ripped from your loins.

“Hello Hello Baby Blue!” Beyonce says in an official statement to the press. "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."

Beyonce continues: "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."

And as far as the reports that the couple spent over a million to rent the entire maternity floor of Lenox Hospital in NYC? A rep for the hospital says it’s “simply not true.”

“The suggestion that the couple paid $1.3 million to rent an entire maternity floor is simply not true. The family is housed in an executive suite at the hospital and is being billed the standard rate for those accommodations,” the Lenox Hospital rep explained.

“The family does have its own security detail on site. However, the hospital has been and continues to be in control of managing all security at the facility. We have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children over the past three days.”
