After a pregnancy fraught by much speculation and side-eying, Beyonce has given birth. Her and husband Jay-Z welcomed a daughter into the world appropriately over the weekend, which is to say in a $1.3 million birthing suite. Her name is (after some confusion) confirmed as Blue Ivy Carter. Famous people tweeted about it, etc.
It’s also being reported that security at New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital was so tight that the father of another newborn was unable to see his family. Which is unbelievably tasteless and narcissistic, and hopefully not true.
