Beyonce and Jay-Z became the proud parents of a baby girl on Saturday. They named her Blue Ivy Carter. Will baby Blue Ivy grow up to be just like Jay-Z and Beyonce?
Beyonce and Jay-Z paid $1.3 million to take over an entire wing of St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital and ensure their privacy, plus another $200,000 for extra security. At least one parent couldn't get in to see his premature twins.
The baby is reportedly named after Jay-Z's Blueprint trilogy of albums, and Beyonce's favorite number, four, which in Roman numerals is IV, hence "Ivy." Carter is Jay-Z's surname.
Some conspiracy theorists who believe Jay-Z is a member of the Illuminati point out that "Blue Ivy" spelled backwards is the Latin name of Lucifer's daughter, "Eulb Yvi." Others have noted that Ivy might be an acronym for "Illuminati's Very Youngest" and that Blue could stand for "Born Living Under Evil."
That's silly, but there's no denying that Blue Ivy was born into an exclusive club. News of Beyonce's pregnancy sent the blogosphere into a frenzy. She is likely to surpass Suri Cruise as the world's most followed baby. Such celebrities as Russell Simmons, Rihanna and Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted to celebrate her birth. Of all the other children born on the same day, how many will the world the notice?
