Beyonce gives birth to baby girl

The Houston Chronicle and E! News are reporting Beyonce has given birth to a daughter. (She might be sharing a birthday with Elvis!)

E! says the baby arrived via scheduled C-section, and that Jay-Z is telling friends her name is Blue Ivy Carter. This is the first child for the superstar and her husband.

“Welcome to the world princess Carter!” singer and pal of the couple Rihanna tweeted. “Love Aunty Rih.”

Russell Simmons also had good wishes for the new parents: “congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z,” he tweeted.
