Beyonce gave birth to baby girl Blue Ivy Carter on Saturday via C-section

On Friday, INF Daily sent us the link to their exclusive photos of Beyonce still pregnant (or still “wearing the pillow”), which were taken Thursday night. It was a photo op designed to show us that Beyonce is still preggo, and to keep us on our guard that the birth could go down at any moment. Well, it did. It happened last night, and the news was first reported by E! News. It was a girl! They named her… Blue Ivy Carter. Blue Carter. Baby Blue.

We were so ready for this belly, and now we’re so psyched to meet this baby!

Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed a daughter Saturday night in New York, the little one’s arrival coming via scheduled C-section, mutliple sources confirm to E! News
And the pop ‘n’ hip-hop princess’ name? Drumroll, please…

Blue Ivy Carter! (At least that’s what Jay-Z is telling pals at this point—the couple’s reps have not immediately responded to calls seeking comment.)

Friend and music mogul Russell Simmons was among the first to celebrate the arrival, tweeting the new parents: “congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z.”

Rihanna gave baby Blue a warm welcome, tweeting: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih.”

Hey, we’re happy to find out this much, considering Blue’s parents didn’t even confirm to the world that they were married until…Wait? Did they ever really confirm it? (Public records ultimately told the tale.)

Anyway, the “Crazy in Love” duo tied the knot in April 2008 after roughly six years of dating. Considering they waited another three years to have a baby, you can tell this is one couple that thinks things through!

Beyoncé memorably revealed that she was pregnant onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.

And her hubby certainly seems to be in the right head space, telling E! News in November that he hoped to be the kind of father whose children could talk to him about anything.

“Your child could come to you and have any type of conversation. I always hope for that kind of open relationship,” he said.

Just imagine the rap sessions father and daughter will be having a few years from now!

[From E! News]

I was kind of meh on this report’s accuracy, but People Magazine is reporting it too, so I think the “scheduled C-section” actually did go down last night. People also reports that Beyonce gave birth at Lenox Hill, and she had checked into the NYC hospital on Friday. Just this past week, the rumors were surrounding Bey giving birth at St. Luke’s, so I don’t know what to make of the hospital switch-up. I wonder if Beyonce was wearing her special birthin’ weave? I wonder if the surrogate is happy and healthy too?

UPDATE: Some media outlets are reporting the name as “Ivy Blue Carter”. I honestly don’t know which one is right.

    Congrats to all involved. So glad the conspiracy theorists can now quick their yammering. Fingers crossed that Blue looks like mom.(Whoever that may be).

  2. oh dear says:

    hmm so the c section would mean she was actually pregnant. a scar would be quite telling, especially if it was missing..

  3. Sadie says:

    Congrats I guess. And I doubt they’re going to confirm it. Beyonce is famewhore on another level and she knows the longer they wait to confirm this news the more people will talk.

    Hoping to break another twitter record this morning I’m sure.

  4. Rose says:

    Congrats to them both on their new baby girl.

  5. Anna says:

    Oh dear – why name the child blue?

  6. macey says:

    I wonder how they’re going to dispose of all those pillows? Will thy just throw them away or burn them so no one discovers them?
    I am glad the pregnancy part is over so the whole charade can end. It was becoming just sad after a while.
    Im just hoping she doesnt try the “how I got my body back” route in the mags.

  7. Camille says:

    The pillow is born. Time stops, angels cry, nations fall down on their knees.

  8. PHD in Gossip says:

    mazel Tov princess pilleau!

  9. I.want.shoes says:

    If the arrival of the pillow keeps her from making more records, I’ll be very happy.

  10. lisa says:

    Why are different outlet reporting a different name. is it Blue Ivy or Ivy Blue?

    Anyway..hoping she is healthy. Congratulations to the couple.

    Just thinking about all the fake pregnancy rumors.. I hope that gets cleared up because it would be terrible for that child to hear about that when she grows up.

  11. Silk spectre says:

    C-section, huh? Too posh to push, I guess! Can’t wait to see the baby and her body after “giving birth”.

  12. Rita says:

    I find it strange that the announcement didn’t give the baby’s vitals…like 7 lbs 4oz baby girl. It’s almost always included in the announcement.

  13. Jules says:

    I just read Ivy Blue, but who knows. Glad this ridiculous charade is over.
    (Hope the surrogate is “resting comfortably”.)

  14. Justalark says:

    If this information is correct, I’m assuming the name “Ivy” was chosen because IV is the Roman Numeral for the number 4, and the couple has a strong attachment to the number???

  15. Asli says:

    Blue Ivy? Blue – fucking – Ivy!!!! What kind of a name is that. I would soooo have preferred Tiana May than Blue Ivy! She’s going to hate her parents for naming her that. Celebs should be banned from using colors, plants, fruit & vegetables, professions and superheroes for naming their babies. Think Goop helped her pick out the name?

    Meh, at least it’s over for the surrogate.

  16. Mika says:

    Quote from the Daily Mail: “I always thought pregnancy was 9 months gestation. If that is the case this baby must have been conceived in April 2011 for to be born in January 2012 if it went to full term. If that is the case she took on Glastonbury a very challenging performance from every prospective with a very vigourous dance routine that went on for a full 2 hours with strong strobe lightning she must have been 2 months pregnant at that stage. This did not seems to effect her in any way I think most pregnat women would not take on a regime like that on their first pregnancy as you would be too nervous to do so. She also had an interview afterwards with Piers Morgan and gave no inclination she was pregnant and talked about her thirtieth birthday and her plans for a family in the near future. I am doing the calculations and it is not adding up that is unless she done Glastonbury while pregnant for at least two months at that stage and decided to keep it a secret until her announcment at the Awards.

    • Rita says:

      I’m not Irish…just so you know.

    • samira677 says:

      I’m not sure what this post is supposed to do. For most women being 2 months pregnant doesn’t effect your activity and most don’t make an announcement until the 2nd trimester. A lot of women, including celebrities continue working. Several tennis players kept playing through their 5th month of pregnancy. Christina Aguilera was on tour into her 2nd trimester.

      I will wait for confirmation since everybody reported she gave birth a week ago.

    • Agnes says:

      that’s kind of silly statement of this woman to make. all the pregnant women i know have stopped working a week or two before the due date – there is no need to stop sooner, unless you have complications. on the contrary, it’s good to keep moving, do stuff, and live your normal life. but maybe ireland is different and you stop working the second you find out you’re pregnant? i have no clue.

    • ol cranky says:

      human gestation is actually 40 weeks (10 months)

      of course, I’m flabbergasted that the announcement made mention of a scheduled C-section – especially with no reference to the baby’s size. Are C-sections usually scheduled for a first baby in cases where there aren’t complications like gestational diabetes/very large baby, serious health issues that would lead to an expectation of complications or it’s known that the mother has a STD?

    • Crimson & Clover says:

      I think there was a lot weird about Beyonce’s pregnancy, but a lot of women don’t even realize they’re pregnant at two months. Sadly for my friend, she miscarried at seven weeks, never knowing she was pregnant. The way B talked about pregnancy early last year, and in 2010, makes me think they weren’t even going to try until 2012. Maybe Blue Ivy/Ivy Blue was a surprise?

      As for scheduled C sections, every single one of my friends with kids has had a scheduled C section. It’s not as “ruinous” as traditional birth, I guess. I don’t think for someone like Beyonce, wealthy and bod-conscious, a scheduled C section would be strange at all. It actually makes me think she was really pregnant–she had to go to a proper hospital and have a team of doctors and nurses around her. Now, if she’d had a home birth or something, I’d be screaming “pillow!”. But a C section means there would be a lot of witnesses.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      I also think this is a silly thing to say. I had NO IDEA I was even pregnant with my 1st until I was more than 3 months along–didn’t affect me at all. With my 2nd I was kinda tired and didn’t have much of an appetite, but that’s about it. Not everyone spends their 1st trimester running off to vomit like in the movies. I worked literally until the days I delivered, still evercised, jogged, went to football games, etc. The only thing that really became difficult was singing and playing an musical instrument, but that wasn’t until I was 5-6mos and baby started to get in the way of my diaphragm.

  17. Bubulle says:

    I’m not even a Beyonce fan, but this pregnancy conspiracy thing is ludicrous. It all started because some blogger with an axe to grind pointed out that Beyonce looked fake to her. There is not a single tabloid report to back up the surrogate story .

    • Ally says:

      Seriously. And those pics from Friday showed an obviously pregnant Beyonce. Her face was fuller and her feet were SWOLLEN. She looked pretty pregnant to me. It just makes me sad…I can’t imagine going through either of my pregnancies with people constantly telling me I was faking.

      • Bubulle says:

        Yep but according to that fake Blind Gossip website she takes prednisole to look puffy which is a total contradiction of their first BI where they claimed she was using a surrogate because she didn’t want to ruin her body. People need to stop believing all those craps seriously.

      • Erinn says:

        She did look relatively pregnant to me. The ONE thing that gets me though is that whole baby bump folding over into the shape of a slipped up fake bump. She WAS wearing padding. She might have been actually pregnant, but she HAD to have been padding, too. Which is why so many people are doubting her.

        http://cdn.babble.com/famecrawler/files/2011/10/beyonce-fake-baby-bump-prosthetic-hoax-pregnancy.jpg

        In that link you can see the ridge on the top of her “belly” where it is flat in the third picture. SOMETHING fishy was going down, and she has brought all these rumors on herself.

      • Tapioca says:

        Ah, yes – but do you have a history of constantly claiming credit for other people’s work?

        Beyonce is a big ol’ thief when it comes to song writing and choreography, and vainer than Narcissus, so that’s why people think it’s pillow. Plus her bump folded like one!

      • ruby says:

        I agree completely. She looked really pregnant in those last pictures, her feet were swollen and she was wearing much smaller heels than she usually does. The conspiracy theory is ridiculous, there is absolutely nothing to prove she wasn’t pregnant. Anyone who didn’t see her obvious baby bump in that bikini photo op clearly didn’t want to and nothing will convince those people.

        I suspect she gave birth before her due date though. The due date was always quite vague and she didn’t seem to be absolutely ready to pop as women usually are around their due date. Maybe she had a blood pressure issue or something.

      • yoyo says:

        Here’s what I think, she decided she wanted to announce at the MTV awards and had this whole dramatic thing planned in advance BUT (and you can still see it at the end of her pregnancy) she’s not one of these women who gets a huged pregnant belly. So come MTV award time she’s not showing enough, so she can’t do her dramatic reveal and she does NOT want to just announce it like a normal person cause well…she’s Beyonce. So she decides to pad. But now that she’s done that she has to keep the padding on until her tummy actually catches up to the padded size. That’s why she didn’t get any bigger for weeks on end. Eventually the tummy got to the size of the padding and she was able to ditch it. In the mean time she had several snafus with the padding including her bikini pictures that were supposed to prove she was actually pregnant that actually did prove she had padded , so she was caught in her own lie. I mean there is a reason Jennifer Hudson got the academy award and not Beyonce! lol

    • KateinNZ says:

      I agree, I don’t believe the surrogate crap. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if she scheduled her C-section for less than full term (like 8 months), which quite a few celebrities supposedly do as the baby is more or less fully developed.

  18. NO SH¡T says:

    So the jumpoff finally had the baby. Congrats to Bey she can stop wearing that damn pillow I know she was hapy.

  19. Mika says:

    Really? how do you know she has herpes? Not knocking you – just want to read up any stories that you may have links to or such….

  20. Victoria says:

    I have been pregnant and I have good hips. It is very difficult for me to believe that she was 9 months pregnant in the last pictures seen in magazines and that her belly was not sticking out more. Usually a belly looks naturally small if the mother is fat, but this is not her case.

  21. Cathy says:

    I wonder if the pillow…oops I mean baby…no I mean pillow was born with hair or bald as a apple.

  22. PHD in Gossip says:

    Just like no one believed Nicole Kidman was really pregnant with Sunday, no one is falling for this stunt. Remember, the world watched her 7 month belly deflate on camera! Had this been a real pregnancy, we would have seen “candid” late stage photo ops of her tummy. In comparison, notice how Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Garner’s pregnancies seem authentic.

  23. Madpoe says:

    I guess the name Blue Ivy is better than Red Lie. That would confirm suspicions. Well I guess all those pillow props Bey can sit nicely on all that cash they’ll get for 1st photos.

  24. Bubulle says:

    Not necessarily if she doesn’t have an outbreak at the time of delivery she can give birth naturally.

    • ol cranky says:

      I didn’t see the post you’re replying to and I guess that’s where the herpes comments are coming from, so I guess that’s been deleted. The stress of L & D can cause a flare so I can’t imagine any OB wanting to take a chance on delivering a baby vaginally if the mother has herpes, it’s too dangerous for the baby

      • Bubulle says:

        According to this article :

        “If you get genital herpes for the first time before you become pregnant, you’ll have antibodies to the virus.

        You’re unlikely to need a caesarean section, even if you get more attacks while you’re pregnant, because the antibodies will protect your unborn baby. The risk of passing an infection to your baby during a vaginal birth is very low, estimated to be around 1-3%”

        I don’t think natural birth among women with genital herpes is uncommon at all.

      • ol cranky says:

        @bubulle: I’m not sure where that information comes from, but it doesn’t sound like it’s been checked against peer reviewed literature.

        There’s a degree of immunosupression during pregnancy that increases the chances of outbreak (which increases the chance of active lesions). Which ACOG doesn’t mandate c-sections in cases of herpes, I’d be shocked to hear an OB in the US would be willing to risk the potential for liability/malpractice suit for a vaginal delivery unless there’s an iron clad indemnification signed by both parents requesting a vaginal delivery – even in the case of recurrent/pre-pregnancy herpes which has a lower risk of neonatal infection than a primary case would have. Remember, we’re in a country where OBs are successfully sued for delivering babies with genetic/developmental anomalies because they didn’t do an amnio/CVS due to the mother being in a low risk category as well as other issues. It’s one of the reasons many GYNs have given up the OB part of their practice over the years.

      • Bubulle says:

        @Ol cranky I’ve decided to react on this subject because one of my relative who happened to have genital herpes gave birth naturally, I was kind of surprised because I had always assumed that pregnant women with genital herpes had no other option than the C-section , mind you I’m french so maybe you right and things are totaly different in your country.

        That being said it’s a kind of nightmarish situation a C-section is also a serious procedure, and if things go wrong an oBGyn can still be sued for malpractice, plaintiffs could still argue they had undergone a risky and uncessary procedure considering the risk of herpes trasnmission via vaginal delivery was low in the first place.

        I find this article on herpes.com it seems pretty reliable. You can check it if you’re interested

      • Isa says:

        It’s true. I have a friend that has it. Omgosh how lame does that sound? I have a friend…lol. Anyway, the drs will put the mom on a medication, like valtrex, if the mom doesn’t have an outbreak at the time then baby will be delivered vaginally. Like a pp said, Jessica Alba delivered vaginally. Well, she said she did.

      • cr says:

        The deleted post wasn’t just claiming (with no proof) that B had herpes, it was other celebrities as well, it was much more racially motivated.
        Yes, STDs will have the doc doing a c-section, to avoid infecting the baby. There are also a whole host of reasons to have a c-section.
        I don’t like Beyonce, but some of this immediately believing that she had a c-section because she had herpes (if she’s even pregnant! Could be fake!!!) is a little over the top, even for a site called Celebitchy.

  25. brandymc1989 says:

    Jessica Alba didn’t have a c-section.

  26. Mali says:

    Its a pity it wasn’t a boy, because then he would be “Little Boy Blue come blow your horn, The sheep’s in the meadow the cow’s in the corn.” etc I do hope they call her Ivy, though and not Blue.

  27. little-red says:

    She actually looks smaller in the most recent pic compared to the one with the black dress??

  28. GiGi says:

    Blue Ivy or Ivy Blue – either way those aren’t baby names those are brand names. This couple would not miss this marketing opportunity.

  29. Dusty says:

    There was a woman in Chicago whose children attended the school I volunteered at. She liked Bacon and Cheddar as foods so much she named her one child Bacon and the other Cheddar. Blue Ivy is about as stupid as those names. Obviously these aren’t the two must intelligent parents- Beyonce and JZ that is, nor the women in Chicago. Just because your successful, doesn’t mean you are smart!

  30. e.non says:

    omg … dlisted has the first photo up of the only child ever to be born…

  31. Isa says:

    Fine, I’ll be the first to say it: That’s the name of a future stripper.

  32. Blue says:

    I hope it’s not “Blue”
    Let’s see how long it is before she’s out posing her ass off.

  33. Mika says:

    At the end of the day only time will tell who this baby looks like! Beyonce is the spitting image of her mother so I tend to think that Creole blood is strong! So if the baby looks like Bey, then fine. If the baby looks like Jay Z – then me thinks it really is Jay’s sidepiece that gave birth.

  34. Isa says:

    Also, I’m surprised she had a scheduled csection. They’re out of style, now everyone wants to do all natural.
    Interesting, since some doctors will preform c sections at 37 weeks. And they often take less than an hour.

  35. truthful says:

    Congrats to the Carters!!

  36. jc126 says:

    Oh dear. I wish it were Ivy Blue, not “Blue Ivy”. First off, a color is not a first name. Second, “Blue” is the worst possible choice, lending itself to really vulgar nicknames when she’s in high school. Like the way Snooki’s friend on Jersey Shore is made fun of for her name/nickname, Rider. Very bad choice.

  37. NM9005 says:

    Kind of an anti-climax :( . I thought it would have a shocking impact on celeb news buuut no. Also weird she scheduled it in a week-end, thought she would hog all the attention mid-week. Oh Bey, ever so surprising…

  38. GABY says:

    My cat’s name is Blue. Tianna Mae would have been much prettier.

  39. T Man says:

    Blue for Jay Z’s album “Blueprint”

  40. Sparkly says:

    Boogers. I named my daughter Ivy because it wasn’t a common name. I bet in a couple years, there will be Ivys all over the place now. ><

  41. mel says:

    Damn aint I lucky Blue Ivy missed my birthday today!

  42. BerMan says:

    Conspiracy Theories , stay tune. I see a show on ‘E’ coming soon. Making and having a baby it ain’t the old fashion way no more !

  43. Lucy says:

    with they had named the baby, Faux Bebe’ Carter…now thats pretty……pretty accurate!

  44. Jb says:

    Ok, I’m late in the game, but why would she fake her pregnancy? To avoid getting fat?
    And what is with all the “pillow baby” talk?

  45. Snappyfish says:

    Blue Ivy? Or Ivy Blue? Either way sounds like a vodka

  46. Shuntell says:

    CONGRATULATIONS. BEY & JAY IM HAPPY FOR YOU GUYS GOD HAS BLESSED YALL WITH A BABY & LIFE THATS ALL THAT MATTERS NOT THESE DUMB AZZ RUMORS.

  47. Shuntell says:

    CONGRATULATIONS. BEY & JAY IM HAPPY FOR YOU GUYS GOD HAS BLESSED YALL WITH A BABY & LIFE THATS ALL THAT MATTERS NOT THESE DUmb RUMORS.

  48. lisa says:

    She will probably be very cute.

    I keep thinking of all the songs with the word BLUE in them

    Blue Moon
    Blue Christmas
    Blue Suede Shoes
    Blue Bayou
    Blue Skies
    Blue Blue Monday
    Blue Velvet
    Misty Blue

    I can’t think if anymore..but I guess BLUE lends itself to music. Both mommy/daddy are into music so not it makes sense.

  49. Mali_ says:

    Blue Ivy or Ivy Blue both sound like perfume names.

  50. AngelMay says:

    Ok, looking at those INF Daily photos, there is no way that woman is term and about to pop! Everybody blows up in those last couple weeks, all moms know this.

    Nothing wrong with using a surrogate, people do for many reasons. If you want to be private fine, but B has worked her pillow womb for every ounce of publicity, so people are going to comment.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      *eyeroll* Everyone does NOT know that you ‘blow up’ at the end of the pregnancy because everyone DOESN’T. I sure as hell didn’t. I didn’t ‘drop’ with my first baby, either. And he was almost 3 weeks late. There is no “every pregnancy does this” or “every pregnant woman looks like that.” There are so many variables (body type, genetics, baby size, position, mom’s diet, etc. etc.) that there are no absolutes. When are some of you ladies going to realize this?

  51. Marianne says:

    I’ve heard Blue Ivy and Ivy Blue…which is it? Personally I like Ivy Blue better, I think it is really adorable.

    Although Blue isn’t as common, she’s not the first person in the world to use it as a name/middle name. And Ivy is already on an upward trend of becoming more popular. My Co-worker has a 7 month old baby and she named her Ivy.

    It’s not that strange.

  52. Tazina says:

    The photos of Beyonce on the beach with her swollen abdomen uncovered made me realize that she actually did have a legimate pregnancy. There is no way she could have faked that.

  53. Michelle says:

    Interesting. Another woman checked into the hospital under tight security too:

    http://sandrarose.com/2012/01/its-a-girl-for-beyonces-surrogate-ingrid-jackson/

  54. Congrats to them both. Regardless of how it gets here, a baby is a good thing.

  55. Hanna says:

    Ivy blue Carter.. Oh well, that’s a sophisticated name.
    Seriously, that name is probably filled with codes and s*hit that is linked to Bey and Jay. Reverse the words, you might find Bey’s name with glitter. The surrogate mom must feel like Shit.

  56. Christelle says:

    Wished they would have gone with Brooklyn Ivy, but it’s not my baby, so whatever.

  57. Amanda G says:

    And I’m sure it’s a lovely pink pillow!

  58. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    How nice of Bey to name her daughter after one of Camel’s jumpoffs. He messed around with singer Blu Cantrell while they were together.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      I saw that on Media Take Out and was going to post that here, but you beat me to it. I had to google her because she hasn’t been relevant for YEARS (so I forgot what she looked like). I see a resemblance between her an Bey. Jay definitely has a type!

  59. Why does everyone think this was fake?? Rachel Zoes pregnancy was way faker then this!

  60. Original Tiffany says:

    I have taken care of many babies born to stars with STDs when I worked in Hollywood.
    I’m not naming names, but one was a huge star on ER. The father of said baby.

  61. YvetteW says:

    Congratulations to B & J!

  62. Anaya says:

    Apparently the baby is named “Blue” and this is confirmed by Jay and Bey’s bff Gwyneth Paltrow on twitter today:

    http://twitter.com/gwynethpaltrow

    RT @Sparrow_Teague @GwynethPaltrow is it ivy blue, or blue ivy? so confused..It’s Blue Ivy Carter!
    4 hours ago

    Cute name. Can’t wait to see who Blue looks like, mom or dad.

  63. Delleah says:

    I think it’s very cruel that people say she faked her pregnancy. When I had my daughter the size of my bump was all over the place because my daughter kept moving around. Plus with my daughter I didn’t look pregnant until I was in my last 2 months. My bump never looked much bigger than Beyonce’s. It caused all sorts of crazy rumors at my work. In the end, I only gained 25 lbs during my pregnancy and lost the remaining 10 lbs within the first month versus my co-worker (who began the rumors) who gained 75 lbs during and then had to go on Weight Watchers afterwards.

    The moral of the story is: never judge a woman by her bump. Each woman will have a different bump and a different pregnancy.

    However, I’m really tired of seeing these celebrities pull this bs of having c-sections without making any attempt at giving birth naturally.

    • Bluebear says:

      Did your baby bump fold in half on an Australian TV show? Because if it did I can see why your co-worker was so harsh, if not then your story really is irrelevant.

      • Delleah says:

        Thanks Bluebear for reminding me why I don’t post on gossip websites. No, my baby bump didn’t fold and neither did hers. If any of you ever cared to look a little more closely you would realize it was a fold in her dress not her bump.

        Btw Bluebear, how does it feel to be so self-righteous and the Captain of the Baby Bump police? People like you seriously make me sick because I dealt with constant criticism when I was pregnant because I didn’t look the way a “normal” woman looks when pregnant. It’s because I took care of my body and didn’t allow myself to gain excessive amounts of weight which lead to having a smaller bump. I didn’t realize taking care of your body by eating healthy and gaining only small amounts of weight was a bad thing. I’m sure Beyonce did the same thing. She probably took care of her body and ate healthy foods which caused a smaller bump. Women don’t have to have huge bumps when pregnant. I don’t know why you have to naysay anyone who doesn’t agree with you.

      • normades says:

        @Bluebear: Wow, that was really bitchy. People go slightly off-topic and tell personal stories A LOT on this site. That’s what makes CB so great. Please don’t bash people for sharing.

        @Delleah: I agree, don’t like the whole too posh to push thing. Funny thing, I really do think a vaginal birth is less hard on one’s body. I know a woman who had both and said she much prefered the VBAC. The recoup time was much shorter.

  64. Jordan says:

    I actually like Ivy Blue Carter better than Blue Ivy Carter. Oh well, I’m kinda surprised they didn’t go for a normal name, but then I forgot that wouldn’t get as much attention and could be mistaken for ANY baby! Never! Congrats.

    Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted saying that it was ‘Blue Ivy Carter’ – I had mixed opinions on whether Beyonce was actually pregnant..but I think she is. It took her four months to release that she was pregnant, it may take a few weeks until we get a first peek at her baby.

  66. reg says:

    Accoding to Hip Hop manager Yandy, this baby was born 1 month ego. I’m not sure why she would talk about it so openly, considering Jay-Z violent behavior with women.

  67. Leigh says:

    Goop confirms name on twitter as Blue Ivy Carter.

    Goop confirms baby name on twitter as Blue Ivy Carter.

  69. Darlene says:

    Of course the baby will look just like her and her husband; it’s their biological child, carried by a surrogate. I will never once believe that she was actually personally pregnant – nor Nicole Kidman. And Katie Holmes WAS pregnant, but lied about the due date b/c TC wasn’t the father. I know that’s a lot of conspiracies there, but I believe every one.

  70. pithy says:

    Does anyone else find the idea of tweeting to a newborn a little bit silly?

  71. Violet says:

    ““Your child could come to you and have any type of conversation. I always hope for that kind of open relationship,” he said.”

    That’s rich, considering he doesn’t appear to have any sort of interaction with his existing offspring.

    Also, I don’t think Beyonce was the one to give birth to this child. As others have pointed out, there’s just too much evidence that they used a surrogate (or Jay-Z knocked up someone else and Beyonce agreed to adopt the baby).

  72. Kew1224 says:

    Why do rich people give their babies such awful names like apple ,,They should not put some of these horrible names on their innocent kids.

  73. Deb says:

    I know a lot of posters thought Ivy Blue sounded better, but Ivy Blue sounds like a porn star’s name.

  74. Rach says:

    Can you psychos just shut up already about the “pillow” baby already. Its hers. Have you seen her CANDID bikini pictures? Your all just dying for a scandal. GROW UP!

  75. NaomiCampbellsPhone says:

    Lemme get this straight, they called her Blue (after Jay Z’s Blueprint album) and Ivy (after Beyonce’s 4 ablum – IV in Roman numerals). If they named their kid after their albums, why did they pass up the opportunity to call the kid Sacha Fierce?! That would have been classic

  76. London says:

    Blue Ivy sounds like a club, and its also the name of Blu Cantrell, Jay’s ex.

  77. Asli says:

    I guess Christmas Eve is on the 7th now too. The second coming has arrived!

    Not!

  78. terri harden says:

    i dont know its so much hateing on beyonce do you really think she would fake a pregnancy people get a life as far as how much the baby weighs i wouldnt tell you people either its sad when we cant be happy for each other a baby is a gift from god i hope they dont listen to this crap and enjoy their baby

  79. Ana says:

    I think she was not pregnant her bump grew way too little since her Australian interview during the last two months the baby gains a lot of weight so you would see a change between the different stages of the pregnancy

  80. Adrien says:

    So they scrapped the name Tianamen Square Carter?

  81. whatevs says:

    what a dumb name. how surprising

  82. dorothy says:

    Well I for one am glad it’s over. Tired of hearing about it.

  83. Lukie says:

    Blue?
    Like Blu Cantrell that is allegedly Jay-Z’s ex jumpoff jussssst before Beyonce?

  84. Honky says:

    Shoulda named it “Green” to go with Apple, the daughter of her bestie, Gwynnie.

  85. Honky says:

    Funny how Bey never posed “nude” on the cover of something like all the other celebs…

  86. nikzilla37 says:

    I can’t wait to see photos of her after she gets her pre-baby body back tomorrow.

  87. Petunia says:

    It was stated on another site that Beyonce was eating oysters while pregnant. Preggers women can’t do that because it could be bad for the unborn child. I sure am suspicious of this pregnancy. I mean, the fat on my belly doesn’t just fold up and disappear (I WISH!) when I sit down. Why would a baby react like it was made of vanishing powder?

    At any rate, Blue is a pretty name and I hope that Beyonce is very good to her, espcially if she really did adopt her for publicity.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      LoL Where do you people get this stuff? Eating oysters during pregnancy isn’t bad for unborn babies! It’s recommended that pregnant women don’t eat RAW oysters unless they’re sure they’re fresh. Bacteria could develop to make mom sick with flu-like symptons. That’s it. No biggie at all. There are cultures in this world that exist on mainly seafood diets that have been having healthy babies for centuries, so fresh oysters do not a pillow make. Sorry.

  88. Tee says:

    Why can’t people just let them be happy, and thank god they had a healthy baby. I just don’t understand all they hate for one person. Who none of you have ever met. First the rumors Katie Holmes didn’t have her baby now this. And what’s funny the rumors about her not being pregnant was all started by a gossip website that was mad because they was announcing for years she was pregnant when she was not. Then when she finally get pregnant they say she’s faking it. I understand gossip sites make their money by making up stories about celebrities but come on let some of them be happy for once without judging or coming down on them and whatever they might name their kids. Believe me their are some non-celebs name their kids weird names too.

  89. ManicPixieDreamGirl says:

    Don’t you mean via pillow section? That name is really adorable!

  90. MissVJJ says:

    All hail the Illuminati Princess. You all are sh*t. Bow before Blue Ivy!

  91. lisa says:

    OMG.. how did a thread about her having a baby or faking the pregnancy turn into STDs and Herpes..

    seriously this is getting nasty. I see this with other celebrities and this has gone off course big time.

    Women have C-sections for numerous reasons.

    OK.. this is just too much. too much. NOT fun at all.

  92. aud says:

    Her entire pregnancy was really sketchy, honestly.

    But I don’t know why she’d fake a pregnancy and hire a surrogate. She could easily lie, say she’s infertile and had to use one. Far less complicated than this mess. I guess the assumption is that it was for the pregnancy press and baby countdown? I guess that Beyonce wouldn’t be willing to share the spotlight with a surrogate.

    We’ll probably never know. The name is hideous though

  93. whatevs says:

    oh god this is so obnoxious: http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/65601436.html#cutid1 read at risk of being infuriated! so ridic and disgusting. no wonder this smug faced, would be royals are bffs with the poopie-martins

    • CeeCee says:

      Wow. That is so so wrong, where do you begin! The American health system is in a state of disrepair where people wait for operations and hospital beds, but celebrities can rent and entire floor to give birth like it’s a hotel. I’m shocked a hospital will allow this kind of thing. It’s bribery! Who gets the 1.3m? Some compensation for the parents who weren’t allowed to see their babies in the neo-natal unit maybe? Totally hideous!!!

      • lisa says:

        What is also wrong is that a celebrity depending on the level of fame can’t go into a hospital and have their child like any ordinary person. That Paps will invade their privacy by bribing staff and pretending to be hurt. They get into the hospital drill holes in floors and ceilings to get pictures. Bribe staff to get medical records. I highly doubt when hospital allow a celeb to have a floor it is at the expense of someone in need of that room or medical assistance.

        Reading the comments it is clear that a celebrity has to go through a great deal in order to have some of the basic liberties that the average person gets. We as people are nosy and feel we have the right to know things that we don’t; just because we pay to see a film or buy music. Being a celebrity doesn’t mean you have to give up all you privacy and personal business.

        They had a baby.. That is beautiful thing. Does it really matter in the big picture how?

  94. DemoCat says:

    Adele’s full name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins. I kind of like the usage of “Blue” there, but maybe I’m biased because I adore Adele and despise Beyonce.

  95. whatevs says:

    hey i have no idea why my recent comment was published waaay above lol anywayz there is news on ontd that beyowulf and husband closed the entire floor of the hospital, probably to protect the surrogate, their bodyguards kept people seeing from their patients, one doctor and one new parents of premature twins were complaining. it’s disgusting. and bey looks so smug. ugh damn i didn’t like them before, but now i just plain hate them.

  96. Sparkle587 says:

    I know we like to hate on Beyonce, but rich people do this all the time. I had my twins at the Portland Hospital in London. My doc told my husband that I wasn’t nearly as high maintenance as the rich man’s mistress who rented out a whole wing for a week at a cost of 100,000 pounds or so. He also had an Arab princess patient who redecorated her room with silk drapes and Gucci sheets. Believe it or not, there are private hospitals or hospitals with private wings set up just to cater to the uber rich. It’s just another case of “how the other half live.”

  97. kc says:

    I am glad the babe arrived safely. I hope the surrogate and newborn are doing well.

  98. Wow says:

    Jessica Alba said she had a C- section as far as I can remember.

    I can say that a secretary here just gave birth and her belly looked nothing like that pillow looking thing on B’s front in that picture.

    I don’t know why would any person lie about that or not give birth when they are still young and go through the pregnancy themselves, but B’s pregnancy gives a very odd vibe.

    She doesn’t need to bribe an entire medical team, if she adopted.

    She would never actually have to deliver and no one knows where she actually was supposed to give birth, so she doesn’t need to “pretend” to give birth.

    Another woman can give birth and have the child put for adoption by B, and so no medical personnel needs to know who exactly and where did the baby go, once the woman is released from the medical center (if the baby is not delivered at home or private clinic…),

  99. Wow says:

    As far as I know, women with herpese are not supposed to give birth naturally if they care not to infect their newborn.
    IF they don’t they are putting their newborn in a greater risk.

    her, nicole kidman (with baby sunday), katie holmes, all used surrogates and lied about it

    Why I can’t reply to individual posts is beyond me. My computer being stupid.

    Anyway re http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/65601436.html#cutid1

    and lisa’s “does it matter how”
    Yes it does.. and here’s why.

    Meyonce was NOT the only person “giving birth” that day. And no amount of “oh we want privacy” makes it ok for her and her colossal ego to keep other newborns separated from their families.

    This is about her selfish need to keep herself separated from the “little people” to throw money around (and possibly threats about what would happen if the hospital did not comply) simply because she can. To make herself feel more important than women who actually did suffer and still have a hard time paying their hospital bills.
    This is really just another show that bey only cares for herself. Really makes the pillow talk seem more plausible.
