Though she’s only a few hours old, the baby’s name is already causing quite a commotion: Blue Ivy Carter.
So what’s the significance of the name? Some fans say the couple named their new bundle of joy “Blue” after Jay-Z’s acclaimed Blueprint albums. The hip-hop mogul had three albums with “Blue” in the title so perhaps it was only fitting that his greatest creation carries on the powerful name.
“Ivy” could stand for IV, the Roman Numeral 4 – a meaningful number for both. Beyonce’s mother’s birthday is January 4th, Beyonce’s birthday is September 4, Jay-Z’s is December 4th, they married on April 4th. On top of that, Bey’s latest album was entitled 4, and they both have matching “IV” tatts on their wedding fingers.
Meanwhile, the Twitterverse went nuts over the weekend when news about Baby Ivy broke!
Celeb friends tweeted best wishes to the proud parents, starting with actress Gwyneth Paltrow who wrote: “Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already…It’s Blue Ivy Carter!”
Rihanna: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih.”
Solange Knowles: “The most beautiful girl in the world.”
