Baby Blue Ivy Goes Home
Beyoncé and Jay-Z have allegedly taken their new baby, Blue Ivy, home from hospital. The New York Daily News reported that the couple left Lenox Hill Hospital in the early hours of the morning to avoid crowds desperate for a glimpse of the newborn. An eyewitness said: "It was very precise, very military-like. Immediately, security personnel began leaving the hospital..."
Before the Carter family left the hospital, they reportedly had an emotional moment with Bey’s father, Mathew Knowles. Beyoncé has not spoken to her father and former manager since it was revealed that he was taking part in extra-marital affairs, thus ending his marriage to Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles.
A source close to the family told website MediaTakeOut: "Jay-Z convinced her to invite her father to the hospital and she did. Mathew came into the delivery room while Bey was in labour and she broke down in tears, she cried openly. It was the first time she'd laid eyes on her father in almost a year." The source adds that emotions were so high that even Jay became tearful.
Jay-Z has shown a softer side this week with the release of his track, 'Glory'. The song is dedicated to his daughter and also revealed that his wife previously suffered a miscarriage, amongst other intimate details.
However, I don’t think Jay will stay weepy for very long if 50 Cent doesn’t stop his snide comments. Just hours after Beyoncé had the child, Fiddy went on Twitter and posted a picture of a baby with Jay-Z’s face pasted on, along with the byline: "Blue Ivy Carter is GORGEOUS."
Sadly for the outspoken rapper, the stunt only caused negative feedback from his fans, who have been calling it a "cheap shot."
