Beyonce is pregnant: Star debuts baby bump at MTV Video Music Awards

After much anticipation and a slew of rumors, Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter, on Jan. 7, 2012 in Manhattan, according to reports. The Grammy-award winning singer checked in the Lenox Hill Hopsital, on New York City's Upper East Side, under the name "Ingrid Jackson." Beyonce and Jay-Z have not spoken out about their daughter, but there has been some speculation that the couple derived the name from the roman numeral for four, "IV," because of the significance of the number four in their lives, reports People magazine. Beyonce's birthday is Sept. 4, Jay-Z's is Dec. 4, and the two married on April 4 in 2008.
