Beyonce, Blue Ivy Carter

8. Blue Ivy Carter Is Born
After endless silly speculation during her pregnancy (Look, Beyonce’s “fake” baby bump just “collapsed” on live TV!) and allegations of divaness at the hospital during her delivery, Beyonce, 31, gave birth to beautiful little Blue Ivy Carter on January 7. The baby’s name spread like wildfire and people couldn’t wait to get a glimpse of the hip-hop heiress. Just two days after Blue’s birth, we heard her for the first time when Jay-Z, 43, released an extremely personal song, “Glory,” about the little girl, which featured her soft cry. A month later, the couple shared the first photos of Blue with the world – not by selling them to a magazine, but by posting them, free of charge, on a Tumblr blog called Hello Blue Ivy Carter. The little lady, with her head of thick black hair, caused such a stir that the site instantly crashed. Blue Ivy Carter has had that kind of effect.
