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.

So (according to CBS News) she rents out the ENTIRE floor of the hospital, the security cameras on the floor are all turned off and all employees have to turn in their cell phones.

hmmmmmm.

The last time I went in the hospital I had to wait 10 hours in the ER for a room to be available.

Must not apply when you are Bey and JayZ.

why?    

Its amazing to me how so many racist people sit beyond their computers and let hate spill out of their mouths. Knowing you wouldn't dare say the same in her face or her husbands. I am so glad that America is turning Brown, and I'd like to thank the white women for their wonderful support of turning America Brown, keep having black babies white girls, us Black Folk are not mad, you are helping American turn Brown.

This is for the person who left the comment under the name truth. You obviously don't know much about Jayz or Beyonce. When have you seen jay z sagging dummy, he even raps about it not being a adult thing and not tying shoe laces. you need to know who you are talking about before you open that dirty trap you call a mouth

Celebrity douchebags!! Other parents of babies in the NICU at Lennox Hill Hospital are being locked out of seeing their own children by security for Jay-Z and Beyonce. They've taken over the entire wing! NOT COOL! ALL babies need their parents, not just famous ones!
