The most anticipated celebaby of the year has finally arrived, in the form of a beautiful baby girl named Blue Ivy Carter.
Megastar Beyoncé Knowles, 30, and music marvel Jay- Z, 42, whose real name is Shawn Carter, welcomed the tiny tot into the private wing of Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, in the late hours of Saturday night/ Sunday morning.

We love you already.’ The couples close family also showed their support when Beyoncé’s younger sister Solange tweeted: ‘The most beautiful girl in the world.’
