NEW YORK (CBS) -- Grammy Award-winning artists Beyonce and Jay-Z have a new prize: A baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter, reports CBS Station WCBS.

The New York Daily News reports that the singer gave birth late Saturday, after checking in to a Manhattan hospital under the name "Ingrid Jackson."

Music mogul Russell Simmons tweeted the good news and "congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z."
