Beyonce Timeline: Blue Ivy Carter Is Born
January 7, 2012: Beyonce’s long-awaited child of destiny is born at Lennox Hospital in New York City. The proud parents name their bundle of joy Blue Ivy Carter, and she is immediately immortalized in song by her rap legend dad. Jay-Z samples Blue’s delivery room cries on “Glory” and describes the most famous newborn on the planet as “a pinch of Hov, a whole glass of B." When the track appears on the R&B singles chart the following week, Blue becomes the youngest person to appear on any Billboard chart – a feat that is unlikely to broken unless someone finds a way of recording sound from inside the womb.
