Beyoncé and Jay-Z have reportedly chosen to make Oprah the godmother of their inevitable planet-ruling daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
Oprah, according to MediaTakeOut.com, has been lined up by Jay-Z and Beyonce to be godmother to baby Blue Ivy. Jay-Z’s best-friend Tyran ‘Ty Ty’ Smith is set to become the godfather.
Blue Ivy has gained the favor of the world’s most powerful media maven, Oprah Winfrey, who apparently sent the infant a thoughtful gift to celebrate her birth.
According to “The Insider,” Oprah, who is a personal friend of Jay-Z and Beyoncé, sent Blue a trunk full of children’s books. It’s an understandable gift considering Oprah’s stance on early childhood education and her famous book club for adults.
Considering Oprah’s generous nature, we’re sure that this is only the first in a long line of lavish gifts that Oprah will bestow on the little bundle of joy.
Both Jay-Z and Beyonce have appeared on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’.
The public have not yet seen baby Blue Ivy, but Kelly Rowland has, saying:
“She’s just more precious than a diamond. She’s just so stunning… She’s beautiful.”
Beyoncé Knowles gave birth to Blue Ivy Carter Saturday, January 7. 2012 Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
Beyoncé is married to hip-hop icon and producer Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter since April 4, 2008.
Jay-Z’s birthday is December 4 , whereas Beyoncé’s birthday is September 4.
The couple’s close friend Gwyneth Paltrow confirmed the baby’s name on Twitter, writing: ‘Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already.’
Ivy is in reference to the couple’s love of the number four – roman numeral for 4 is IV.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z have matching IV tattoos on their wedding fingers. The singer’s latest album is called 4 which was her fourth solo studio album. Jay-Z has a trilogy of albums under The Blueprint banner which could have inspired his daughter’s name Blue Ivy: He has released The Blueprint, The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse and The Blueprint 3.
