Reports: Beyonce and Jay-Z Welcome Baby Girl

Jemal Countess/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With all the attention being paid to it, one of the most anticipated event of the nascent year has finally happened -- Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their first child into the world this weekend.

The pop music superstar gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter on Saturday night in New York, the E! network reported.

On Friday, Beyonce reportedly checked into Lenox Hill hospital where the entire fourth floor was rented out for $1.3 million, a source told the New York Daily News.

As news spread about the couple's new addition to their family, fans tweeted their congratulations including the couple's closest celebrity friends, who couldn't wait to share the good news.

Hip hop mogul, Russell Simmons tweeted , "congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z" while singer Rihanna tweeted, "Welcome to the the world princess carter! Love aunty rih."

Beyonce was seen in public late last week for the first time since rumors that she was on the delivery table swarmed the Internet.

She was spotted in front of a New York City office building with a bodyguard and a large, colorful scarf artfully concealing her midsection. Neither stopped photographers from chronicling what appears to be her steadily growing belly.

The singer coyly revealed at MTV's Video Music Awards in August that she and husband, Jay-Z, were expecting their first child, showing off her growing belly in a flowing Lanvin gown.

No Post-Birth Beer for Mariah Carey

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Mariah Carey is quashing earlier reports that she had a beer after her twins Moroccan and Monroe were born last spring at a Los Angeles hospital.

The beer allegation prompted the involvement of California Child Protective Services, who, Carey said, investigated whether the babies were subject to “neglect.”

“It just doesn’t make any sense,” Carey told Barbara Walters in an exclusive interview airing on ABC’s 20/20 Friday.

Carey said that, at the time, the newborns — who are now six months old — were being cared for in the hospital’s neo-natal intensive care unit.

“The babies were in the most protective environment because it’s the NICU,” she said.

Carey said the beer story started with a suggestion by a nurse who brought the singer a beer, saying it would help improve lactation.

But, Carey said, “I didn’t even drink the beer.”

Watch Barbara Walters’ exclusive interview with Carey and husband Nick Cannon, plus see their babies’ faces for the first time, on ABC's "20/20" Friday at 10 p.m. ET.

Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon Reveal Babies' Names

GABRIEL BOUYS/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have revealed the names of their newly-born twins.

The boy's name is Moroccan Scott -- Scott is Nick's middle name, as well as his grandmother's maiden name. As for "Moroccan," Nick proposed to Mariah in the top tier of her New York City apartment, which is called "The Moroccan Room" because of its Moroccan-style decor. 

The girl's name is Monroe Cannon -- there's no middle name, Mariah's rep says, because Mariah doesn't have one.  The "Monroe" is after Marilyn Monroe, one of Mariah's heroes.  She famously purchased Marilyn Monroe's white piano a few years back.
