it’s no longer news, but in case you’ve been under a rock:
“Life just got REALLY good.
Hello Hello Baby Blue!
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.
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.”
Beyoncé & JAY Z
congratulations and well-wishes to the happy parents!!! since her reveal of the pregnancy, beyonce’s bump watch has been on high alert, with plenty of foolish commentary. while’ i’ve appreciated watching her pregnancy style, that’s the extent of it for me. i think it is so exciting to see beyonce join the mommy club because she has literally grown up before our eyes. but we do have to be careful to respect boundaries. i’m sure bey will be doting and protective of her newest treasure.
i was struck by the name. at first i wasn’t sure, but upon reflection, i like that it feels extra-ordinary. she’s obviously going to have an extraordinary life! i read one article that broke down a plausible explanation of the name, but only blue’s mom and dad know the real deal. they’ve been much more open about the baby, than they’ve ever been about their relationship. so maybe someday they’ll share the meaning. but, if they don’t, that’s okay too. i think celebrities should get to keep some things for themselves.
speaking of openness: have you heard the song jay penned for his baby girl? it’s so sweet and honest and i LOVE the last few seconds with the baby crying in the background. i’d be willing to bet that is baby blue’s actual cry. it’s only befitting that music’s new princess is a recording artist within a few days of her birth. pretty cool! click here for the song, if you haven’t heard it yet.
