Ever since Beyonce gave birth to Jay-Z’s child, the paparazzi has been trying to snap a photo of their baby Blue Ivy Carter.  The paparazzi has been unsuccessful getting photos and until last night the child remained unseen by the general public and fans of the two music icons. Wondered what Jay-Z and Beyonce’s child looked like? Look no further. Last night The Carter Family released photos of their newborn daughter themselves along with a message to those who cooperated and respected their privacy.

“We welcome you to share in our joy.  Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives.” -The Carter Family
