Blue Ivy Carter, the much-heralded baby daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z, has officially made her public debut.
The president and first lady of hip-hop have shared their first baby photos via Jay-Z’s Web site, Life + Times, an apparent follow-up to Beyonce’s public appearances earlier this week, her inaugural ones since giving birth.
The arrival of Blue — an infant dubbed a child of destiny and who inspired the recording of a rap song within hours of her birth — has prompted some over-the-top attention. But it doesn’t seem like an exaggeration to say that this little girl is one gorgeous baby.Take a look at the photos below, which are accompanied by a handwritten note that says, “We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives. The Carter Family.”
