On January 8, 2012, Beyonce and husband Jay-Z welcomed a baby girl named Ivy Blue. Born Beyonce Giselle Knowles, the singing diva is no stranger to unusual names. Her husband’s birth name is Shawn Corey Carter but the world better knows this successful entrepreneur, rapper, and producer as “Jay-Z.” Maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the couple chose to name their baby Ivy Blue, which is far more conservative than some other baby names, such as the unusual selection by Gwyneth Paltrow of “Apple” or the bizarre choice of “Pilot Inspektor” by Jason Lee, or Jermaine Jackson’s son “Jermajesty.” What might be more surprising than the name choice, is the way social media networking sites have responded to Beyonce’s baby’s name. Spreading like wildfire on Twitter is the topic “Eulb Yvi is Latin for Lucifer’s daughter.” The suggestion is that “Ivy Blue” backwards is “Eulb Yvi,” and means “Lucifer’s daughter” in Latin. Another proposal is that Blue stands for “Born Living Under Evil” and that Ivy stands for “Illuminati’s Very Youngest.”
The baby isn’t named Ivy. Beyoncé and Jay-Z named their little diva Blue Ivy Carter, according to a statement released by the couple today. Some sources were reporting that the child is named Ivy Blue. Why Blue Ivy? Nobody really knows at this point. Maybe the mega-stars named their kid after their favorite color and plant, but let’s be clear—this is speculation, not a fact. The baby name has no connections to Lucifer. Some people are saying that the baby’s name, Blue Ivy, is proof of Jayoncé’s membership in a Satan-worshiping Illuminati cult, and if you spell the name backwards you get the Latin name of Lucifer’s daughter, Eulb Yvi. Turns out Lucifer didn’t have a daughter and these aren’t even Latin words. And no, Ivy isn’t meant to be an acronym for “Illumaniti’s Very Youngest.” Beyoncé didn’t have a c-section. The celebrity gossip siteTMZ led the world to think Beyoncé had an elective c-section, which is common among superstars. After all, Posh Spice (aka Victoria Beckham) had four. But today the pop star issued a statement putting the kibosh on this story.
Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives.
The couple (probably) didn’t pay a hefty sum to rent an entire hospital floor.The New York Daily News ran a story reporting that music’s power couple paid $1.3 million to seal off an entire floor of Manhattan’s Lenox Hill hospital during Beyoncé’s birth. A follow-up story in the Daily News said that a Brooklyn father and his wife were barred from seeing their preemie twins in the NICU due to security for Beyoncé over the weekend.
Even the NY Times jumped on this story and talked with some parents who were stopped by security guards on their way to the NICU. The paper also quoted a doctor who said, “that two months ago he learned from obstetrical personnel at the hospital that a sixth-floor area previously used for medical observation before delivery had been cordoned off and was being rebuilt as a private suite, at no cost to the hospital.”
Monday, the hospital issued a statement disputing this information:
Lenox Hill Hospital and its staff were delighted to welcome the Carter family for the birth of their firstborn on Saturday evening, but we are troubled by the misinformation being circulated in some news media reports. The suggestion that the couple paid $1.3 million to rent an entire maternity floor is simply not true. The family is housed in an executive suite at the hospital and is being billed the standard rate for those accommodations…
The family does have its own security detail on site. However, the hospital has been and continues to be in control of managing all security at the facility. We have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children over the past three days. No security plan that we or the Carters’ security team put in place would have prevented or delayed families from gaining access to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and to date, no families have complained to the hospital about being denied access to the NICU.
Should we believe the hospital’s statement? There’s probably some truth in the middle of all this.
