    Jay-Z and Beyoncé watch Rafael Nadal of Spain and Novak Djokovic of Serbia play for the 2011 U.S. Open title in Flushing, Queens on Sept. 12, 2011. Beyoncé confirmed her pregnancy about two weeks previously.

    Beyoncé’s baby has arrived.

    The 30-year-old singing sensation gave birth to a daughter via C-section Saturday night in New York City, E! News reported, citing multiple sources.

    While there is some question about the baby's name — the Daily News claims it's Blue Ivy, while Entertainment Weekly says it's Ivy Blue — her new mama checked into the hospital Friday night under the moniker “Ingrid Jackson,” the Daily News reported. Jay-Z’s real name is Shawn Carter.

    Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, rented out the entire fourth floor of Lenox Hill Hospital on New York’s Upper East Side for $1.3 million for the big moment, according to the Daily News. The musical power couple’s baby girl came into the world some four months after Beyoncé famously framed her baby bump at the MTV Video Music Awards to reveal that she was expecting.

    “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih,” Rihanna tweeted, while Russell Simmons offered his “congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z.”
