Beyonce baby is born
Chartreuse Algae must have been taken.
Congratulations to new mama Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z, and happy belated B’Day to baby Blue Ivy, who was born by Destiny (C-section) in NYC Saturday. Blue Ivy may sound like a detergent, trendy liqueur, or curious shade of denim (and surely within a few months all of these products will exist), but at least her parents won’t have to whip up an imaginary pop star name like “Lakoda Rayne” when she’s older.
Blue Ivy. The more I type it, the more I LIKE it. Maybe I’ve had too many shots of it!
Of course it wasn’t an easy road to Blue Ivy — when the news first broke this morning, people, confused by the genius they were beholding, passed along the baby’s name as Ivy Blue. (Thank you Gwyneth Paltrow, who swooped in this morning with a clarifying tweet. Goop in a pinch!) So already — along with “Aunty Gaga,” “Uncle Kanye,” and “Uncle Chris Brown” — #NamesBetterThanIvyBlue is trending on Twitter. Which is ridiculous, because what name could possibly be better than that? Okay, gotta go buy some jeans.
