Proud new parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z peeled themselves away from their darling baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter, long enough to released an official statement on the “emotional and extremely peaceful” birth of their first child:
“Hello Hello Baby Blue!
We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012.
Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives.
We are thankful to everyone for your prayers, well wishes, love and support.
- Beyoncé & Jay-Z.”
Earlier today, Jay released a touching dedication song to his “greatest creation,” titled “Glory.”
