But the rumors have not stopped.
According to first reports, the singer had her daughter via a C-section, but the couple is cleaning up the media mess before it gets out of hand.
“We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012,” they wrote. “Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”
There were also reports that the couple spent $1.3 million to rent out the entire fourth floor of Lenox Hill Hospital, but reps for the couple say the reports were exaggerated.
In the midst of all of this, the couple also revealed that before there was a Blue, the new parents suffered a miscarriage. For more on that, read here.
