After much anticipation, Beyonce and Jay-Z released photos of their new baby daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, to the public online through Tumblr on Saturday.
Although Beyonce and Jay-Z had the press guessing where the first photos of Blue Ivy Carter would appear, the music power couple decided to release the baby photos for free via Tumblr. Despite many reports that suggested Beyonce and Jay-Z could release the photos to a magazine for a high price tag, the couple wanted fans to share in the excitement.
With the photos, Beyonce and Jay-Z left a personal message to give back to fans and the press.
“We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives. The Carter Family”
