In their official birth announcement released yesterday afternoon, Beyonce and Jay-Z made it a point to inform the world that Blue Ivy came out of Beyonce’s vagina naturally because this ain’t no Gwyneth Paltrow Peruvian C-Section Box Social, yo. Via People:
“We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012,” the couple said, confirming the news in a joint statement Monday. “Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful – we are in heaven.”
“She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs.,” the statement adds, dispelling rumors that the birth was by scheduled cesarean.
“It was the best experience of both of our lives,” continue Beyoncé and Jay-Z, who has already released a song devoted to his baby girl. “We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”
In his song, “Glory feat. B.I.C.” released shortly before the birth announcement, Jay-Z also reveals that Beyonce secretly suffered a miscarriage before becoming pregnant with Blue:
“Last time, the miscarriage was so tragic, we was afraid you disappeared, but nah, dear, you magic.”
What’s genuinely touching about Jay-Z tastefully sharing their pain that so many parents have been through, and I didn’t even know you could do this, is HE DIDN’T TWEET A PHOTO OF A GODDAMN DEAD FETUS TO THE ENTIRE WORLD.
*drops microphone, pours swig of coffee on the ground, points to Heaven* One love, Jay-Bey fetus.
