Gwyneth Paltrow Confirms Beyonce’s Baby Is Named Blue Ivy

Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s baby girl has only been in the world for a few hours, and yet, she’s already created mass confusion on the internet. While many of the initial reports cited her name as Ivy Blue Carter, it was later revealed that baby Carter’s name is in fact Blue Ivy — which Gwyneth Paltrow has since confirmed via Twitter.

“Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already,” the actress/singer posted Sunday morning on her Twitter page. When prompted by one of her followers to clear things up, Paltrow said again that the newsy baby is in fact Blue and not Ivy. “RT @Sparrow_Teague @GwynethPaltrow is it ivy blue, or blue ivy? so confused..It’s Blue Ivy Carter!,” she reiterated.

As expected, just about everyone is weighing in on the new arrival, and while not all of the commentary is positive, it’s inarguable that Blue Ivy Carter will be the hottest story of 2012 — so far, anyway. Proud parents Bey and Jay have not yet commented on their little bundle of viral joy, but we think in this baby’s case, a name is not just a name. Both her first and middle name — Blue and Ivy — have important ties to the power couple.
