VMA_Beyonce.jpgFresh reports are swirling that Beyonce has given birth to a baby girl. According to news reports the singing superstar has welcomed a daughter named Blue Ivy Carter.

Beyonce and husband Jay-Z are said to have rented out the entire fourth floor of Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan in preparation of the birth. In order to ensure the couple's privacy, hospital staff put tape over security cameras and forced staff to hand in their mobile phones to prevent photos of the newborn being released. And the bill for this luxury... a cool $1.3 million, the New York Daily News reports.

Amongst the first to congratulate the pair was Rihanna, who tweeted: "Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih."

Of course this isn't the first we've heard of Beyonce apparently giving birth in recent weeks. She was rumoured to have welcomed a daughter, named Tiana-May Carter, last month. I wonder if these new reports will prove to be true.
