Beyonce Gives Birth To A Baby Girl Called Blue Ivy Carter
Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their first child on Saturday night called Blue Ivy Carter.
Beyonce gave birth at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York via C-Section and is reported to be doing fine. Their good friend Russell Simmons was one of the first to break the news on his twitter.
The name Ivy is thought to come from “IV” — the Roman numeral for four which is phonetically spelled out as “Ivy”. The number 4 is a common theme for the couple. They were secretly wed on April 4, 2008 (04/04/08), each has a birthday on the 4th (Beyonce on Sept. 4, Jay-Z on Dec .4). Beyonce’s fourth studio album was called 4. Blue is also reported to be Jay-Z’s favourite colour and has significance via his Blueprint trilogy of albums. Source Poprush.
