[photogallerylink id=139388 align=right]With all the talk about Blue Ivy Carter and trademarks, it’s easy to forget that the little person’s name we’re talking about is just that: a real person.

But Beyonce and Jay-Z wanted to be in total control of their young daughter’s affairs so they waited until they were ready to unveil the first pictures of their newborn.

Instead of selling her off to the highest bidder, Jay and Bey decided to release the photos via Jay-Z’s website, “Life and Times.”

The photos show an overjoyed Jay holding his baby girl while sitting down, Mama Bey grasping her newborn complete with barf scarf over her shoulder as well as close-ups of the little one, Blue Ivy.

The stream of pictures concludes with a note from “The Carter Family” that reads: “We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives.”

She’s a beautiful baby, with incredibly talented parents. Sounds like a good life.

We wish all the Carters the very best!

 Jay-Z featuring Blue Ivy Carter “Glory”

  • Do you think that Bey and Jay did the right thing by releasing the photos or should they have kept B.I.C under wraps for longer? Sound off below!
