Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed a daughter on Sunday.
And what’s the name of the much-awaited princess of hip hop? Blue Ivy Carter.
Beyonce, 30, gave birth to the baby via planned caesarean section at Lenox Hill hospital in New York. E! Online repots that her 42-year-old rapper husband Jay-Z (a.k.a. Shawn Carter) was by her side for the birth.
The new arrival got a warm welcome on Twitter:
“The most beautiful girl in the world,” Beyoncé’s sister, Solange Knowles, tweeted.
“Congrats to my good friends Beyoncé and Jay-Z,” wrote Russell Simmons.
“Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already,” tweeted Gwyneth Paltrow.
It’s the first child for the couple, who got married in 2008.
