Happy stork news! After months of anticipating, Beyonc├⌐ finally gave her birth to her baby girl on Saturday night. Beyonc├⌐ and husband Jay-Z (a.k.a. Shawn Carter), have reportedly named their baby Blue Ivy Carter.
Jay-Z and the new mother reserved a private wing (the entire fourth floor!) at Lennox Hill Hospital on ManhattanΓÇÖs Upper East Side for the C-section, according to E! News. The New York Daily News reported the birth cost an estimated $1.3 million dollars.
Security was also a major component of the babyΓÇÖs delivery. Beyonc├⌐ checked in under the name “Ingrid Jackson” on Friday night. Hospital management further catered to her request for confidentiality by having the entire staff turn in all smart phones and covering security cameras with tape, all in effort to prevent any information leaks or photograph leaks of the baby unofficially. Guards were even spotted off of Park Avenue.
Since the baby’s birth, security has been increased at the hospital, reportedly causing other expecting couples to experience some hardships over their own deliveries. Hopefully, all will be cleared up soon. Congrats!
