Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting their second child, according to E! News.
The news comes right at the heels of the singer cancelling a tour date in Antwerp, Belgium citing “dehydration and exhaustion” as the culprit. Rumours of Beyoncé’s third pregnancy (her first resulted in a miscarriage which was first revealed in her HBO documentary) first began swirling earlier this month when she walked down the MET Gala red carpet in a high-waisted Givenchy dress with possibly figure-hiding pattern.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z already have one child together, 16-month-old Blue Ivy Carter.
For a one year baby, Blue Ivy Carter is probably one of the most elusive celebrities. The public only caught a glimpse of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s famous offspring when Beyoncé made the decision to include the famous tot in her HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream. Since then, it’s been quiet on the Blue Ivy front until now.
The one-year-old was in Paris with her musical parents. It’s hard to tell which of the two she looks like the most because from one angle, she looks exactly like Hova but like a young Beyoncé in another. D’awwww.
Since the birth of Blue Ivy Carter, many have wondered what inspired parents Jay-Z and Beyonce to come up with the unique name.
So offering her fans a little insight to what inspired them, B posted a poem by Rebecca Solnit called ‘A Field Guide to Getting Lost’ on her Tumblr.
Written in blue, the poem reads:
“The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the end blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in the water. Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue.
The sky is blue for the same reason, but the blue at the horizon, the blue of the land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the color blue.”
Upon reading the poem, I guess it means that Beyonce is telling us that her love for Blue Ivy is forever, just like the ocean and the sky will forever be the colour blue.
Last night’s episode of SNL was hosted by Maya Rudolph with performances by Sleigh Bells. The best act of the night was a Beyonce/Jay-Z sketch in which celebrities paid their respects to baby Blue Ivy Carter. Angelina tried to kidnap the Blue Ivy to add to her baby collection and an overly-excited Taylor Swift came through saying nothing at all. My fave visitors were Fred Armisen from Portlandia creeping over Ivy’s crib and giving her a creepy one-sided grin and Justin Timberlake putting himself to sleep strumming his canoe-guitar as Bon Iver.
Another great part of the night was a performance by musical duo Sleigh Bells. They also revealed that Jack White will be a musical guest on March 3 with Lindsay Lohan as host. It’ll be an interesting dynamic and I wonder if Lohan will poke fun at her longtime tabloid headlines.
Beyonce and Jay-Z have released the first photos of their baby, Blue Ivy Carter via their personal Tumbler account, helloblueivy with the following message:
“We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time in our lives.
-The Carter Family.”
How hip of the hippest couple in hip-hop to go about this route rather than sell the photos to a glossy magazine. Behold, Blue Ivy Carter…
Many were in the race to become America’s Next Top Godmother. Beyonce and Jay-Z had a hefty list to choose from.
Gwyneth Paltrow could have been that intellectually stimulating godmother that teaches the kid about veganism and yoga. Kelly Rowland (remember her from Destiny’s Child?) could have been the stylish godmother, taking the kid shopping on Rodeo Drive.
According to Media Takeout, the new parents have picked Oprah as Blue Ivy’s godmother. This is a reasonable selection because doesn’t Oprah feel like she’s everybody’s godmother? Jay-Z’s close friend Tyran Smith is the godfather but he’s obviously eclipsed by the Lord and saviour that is Oprah.
This further proves that Blue Ivy Carter will rule the world when she turns 18.
