Born: A daughter to Beyoncé, 30, and Jay-Z, 42, in NYC Saturday night, according to reports by E! and the singer’s hometown Houston Chronicle. The first child for hip-hop’s royal couple, who wed in April 2008, has been the most anticipated and rumor-generating celebaby of the year (unless Kate Middleton steps up to the plate). Reports that they named her Blue Ivy Carter got a measure of confirmation Sunday by a tweet from the couple’s pal Gwyneth Paltrow — though, who knows, maybe she just picked that up from E! The New York Daily News reported that the couple rented out an entire floor of a wing of Lenox Hill Hospital, had the security cameras taped over to prevent photos from getting out, and posted guards out front.
