These are the pictures the world has been waiting for. Jay-Z and Beyoncé have released the first photos of their month-old bundle of joy, Blue Ivy Carter. The proud papa posted the pics on his website, Life and Times, with a note thanking fans. “We welcome you to share in our joy,” Jay-Z wrote. “Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives.” The photos were released just as news broke that Blue’s famous parents are thinking about trademarking her name.
