Happy proud new parents, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have just released photos of their beautiful baby, Blue Ivy Carter. Instead of selling the pictures to a magazine for a pretty penny, the couple (who prefer to keep their private lives private) decided to share them for free on a Tumblr account. Along with the pictures, a message says:

“We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives. – The Carter Family.”

Blue Ivy is so cute and you can tell that Beyonce and Jay-Z are going to make great parents. Check out the picture of Jay-z with his child below and I’ve included the link to their page for more pics, should you desire.
