Beyonce finally popped, giving birth to a baby girl named Blue Ivy Carter in New York City on Saturday

Proud dad Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, was at the hospital where Beyonce reportedly birthed Ivy by c-section -- and shortly after her arrival ... J & B's famous friends started sending out birth announcements on the Internet.

Rihanna tweeted, "Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih"

Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons also took to Twitter, saying ... "congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z."

Beyonce famously announced her pregnancy on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards back in August.

But I want I think is funny on the 5th they got a picture of Bey but NO stomach but she gives birth on the 7th what a joke I wont be buying any of her music any more for real damn fraud!!

So, did Jay Z name the baby after his old girl friend Blue Cantrell? But how are you photographed on the 5h of January with NO stomach and on the 7th you give birth? And I bet she going to be at the grammys with a flat stomach jumping and swinging that tired ass waved of hers, I think the wave gave birth!!

Congradulations to the new parents!!! Even though sometimes things look suspect with these pregnancy rumors, I am happy for them and the safety and health of the baby. What gets me though is everyone is acting like the messiah was born!!! Also it's not nice saying the baby is going to be ugly, shame on you!!!

i would do the same thing if i could. i know exactly what she feels like. when the man you love and spent so much time with had dirty rotten sex with dirty rotten whores all over the place, possibly in your own home, you are going to get paranoid about what people do. i don't like used furniture, clothes, etc. if i could, i would build a brand new house so i knew it was clean - that nothing disgusting had gone on where i am trying to live. some people wouldn't want to live where murders were committed, others don't want to live where orgies happened. simple! leave her alone.

I don't like the name. If my first name was Blue, that would depress me. Like how are you feeling today? "Blue" Lol.
Sidebar: Is Blue their favorite color. Or maybe they are trying to copy Blu Cantrell the singer. Hm...Or maybe they think that would be a great stage name. I would have preffered Ivy Be the first name.
