"CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King, Oprah Winfrey's friend, denied internet buzz that Winfrey is the godmother of Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter, Blue Ivy.

"It's absolutely not true that she's the godmother," King said. "She's friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much. She's working on sending them a baby gift. She hasn't even had time to send a baby gift because she's been away."

King added, "Let me just say, if (that report is) true, it is news to her. It is news to her. You know, she was heading to South Africa when the baby was born."

Blue Ivy was born on Saturday, January 7, 2012.
