Music’s biggest couple on the planet, Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles are never satisfied with a day off and even after labour and the birth of their first born on Saturday, dad Shawn Corey Carter has made a touching a beautiful song ‘Glory’, featuring B.I.C. (see what he has done there?), in praise of his daughter Blue Ivy Carter and, of course, mum Beyoncé. The delightful sounds of the newborn baby’s crying is heard about three minutes in. The rapper from Brooklyn posted the song on his superb blog Life + Times (sounds like another blog, doesn’t it?).

There was a simple message:

Life just got REALLY good.

Hello Hello Baby Blue!

We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012.

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.

We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.

Beyoncé & JAY Z
