Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of superstars Beyonce and Jay-Z, has gotten more attention in the past 72 hours than most people can accumulate over an entire lifetime. Beyonce's pregnancy and delivery of the child has been shrouded in mystery and myth, but the record is finally clear.
Rumors of Beyonce's childbirth began to swirl the last week of December, when nurses at a New York City hospital squealed that the songstress had checked in. It was then said that she had named the child Tiana May Carter. Both rumors were proven false within days – Tiana May belongs to another new mother in Brooklyn, and a still-pregnant Beyonce and Jay were seen dining on New Year's Eve, according to People Magazine.
When Blue Ivy was finally born on Saturday, January 7, the rumor mill continued to swirl – some reports said she was delivered via C-section, while others insisted she was not, Time Magazine reports.
