So the name... This is where it gets complicated. You know the press-shy couple isn't talking (they didn't confirm they were MARRIED until a year after the fact). One report says that it's Blue Ivy Carter. Another says it's Ivy Blue Carter.
However, Beyonce's BFF Gwyneth Paltrow seemed to have cleared up any misconceptions on Twitter today. "Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already," she posted Sunday morning. She then replied to a tweet from someone asking the correct order of the name, writing: "It's Blue Ivy Carter!"Before any of you say, "BLUE?! I've never heard of such a crazy name" it's actually not that unusual, especially in the celeb world. The color name was given by Cher to her son, Elijah Blue, back in the '70s and it's been used ever since, including by Alicia Silverstone, mom to Bear Blu, just last year. U2's The Edge and Maria Bello are also among the stars who gave their kiddos the name.
Celebs are aTwitter about Baby Carter. In addition to Gwyneth's posts, everyone from "Aunty Rih" (that's Rihanna to you and me) to Russell Simmons have tweeted well wishes, and Beyonce's little sister Solange gushed: "The most beautiful girl in the world."
I'll throw in my own, too: Whether the baby's name is Blue or Bova, I'm just so excited for the under-the-radar, long-time couple, who had to deal with what I'm sure were annoying fake pregnancy rumors throughout what is supposed to be a happy time. And I can't wait to see the first pix of the baby...wonder if she'll be wearing mini gold shoes to match her mom.
