Beyoncé and Jay-Z Confirm That Yes, They Had a Baby

"Hello Hello Baby Blue!" begins their official statement, which was released last night and includes a few notable pieces of information. First, Gwyneth Paltrow was totally right: The name is Blue Ivy, not Ivy Blue. Second, Blue Ivy was delivered "naturally," meaning those C-section reports are not to be believed. (We guess? Maybe Jay and Bey have a broader definition of natural.) And third, the birth was "emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven." Aw, time to listen to "Glory Feat. B.I.C." again.
