Now that Beyoncé's "End of Time" co-star (Blue Ivy Carter) has been born (either from Mrs Carter's own womb or via a surrogate), we wonder when we'll finally get to see the proper music video. Hopefully soon. Sidebar: Mrs Carter says she "delivered" Blue vaginally, not via C-section, as was previously reported. Mr and Mrs Carter released a statement confirming the birth. It read: "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." According to reports, unnamed hospital staffers said Mr and Mrs Carter paid $1.3 million to take over an entire floor of the hospital and renovated the area. Renovations included a bulletproof door and windows specially darkened to prevent anyone from seeing in. The hospital has officially denied all of this. In a statement a spokesperson said: "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."
