Beyonce and Jay-Z have revealed the first images of their first child, Blue Ivy Carter, on a new website dedicated to the 4-week-old baby.
In a note featured on a Tumblr page called HelloBlueIvyCarter, which surfaced online on Friday, the couple states, "We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this time in our lives."
There are five photos featured on the site including one of Beyonce holding the baby and one of Jay-Z holding the child. Beyonce's official website links to the Tumblr page.As of Friday afternoon, more than 17,000 people have either liked or shared the post that displays a picture of Beyonce and her baby.
In the song, Jay-Z raps, "Hard not to spoil you rotten / looking like little me / The most beautifulest thing in this world / Is daddy's little girl."
The song also featured a crying baby in the background which may be the first sounds of baby Blue Ivy Carter crying.
Beyonce recently tried to trademark her daughter's name in hopes of preventing others from making money off the name but her application was initially rejected on February 7 in part because the trademark to the phrase "Blue Ivy" is owned by a boutique named Blue Ivy, located in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
