There's a new girl in town, and though she's just a few days old, people have been gossiping about her for years. Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z and superstar Beyonce Knowles, was born Saturday night at Lenox Hill Hospital following endless speculation about everything from her conception to the cravings she spurred in her überfamous mother.
Now that she's arrived (via South American surrogate, if you buy the most ridiculous reports), Blue Ivy has conspiracy theorists in a tizzy over her name. Devoted Jay-Z and Beyonce fans believe the name was inspired by two things: Jay-Z's Blueprint albums (3 total) and the couple's shared love of the number four. Beyonce was born September 4, Jay-Z December 4, the two were married on April 4 (4/4/08), and they supposedly have the Roman numerals IV tattooed on their ring fingers. I-V: Ivy.
This makes sense.
