Talking to Rick Rubin in the album clip Jay-Z admits: “[She’s] something that we both created; we still marvel at her.”

In another clip he talks more about his daughter’s influence on another track entitled Heaven, which he says can be located in his daughter’s laughter. The rapper also described the feeling of his child going missing for just three minutes.

The 43-year-old revealed how difficult his childhood was which has left him with lasting doubt over his father credentials.

He explained: “My pop left when I was young, so he didn’t teach me how to be a man, nor how to raise child, or treat women. So, of course, my karma, the two things I need, I don’t have. And I have a daughter. It’s the paranoia of not being a great dad.”

Besides his influence from daughter Blue Ivy, Jay -Z’s album features several collaborations including
Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean and of course Beyoncé herself.

Solange who is a model and a DJ is expected to be releasing some new records said she wouldn’t like to get as famous as her sister because she wouldn’t be able to do normal things: “I really enjoy my privacy and being able to walk my son to school every morning and pick him up every afternoon.

According to the New York Daily News, the singer checked in at New York City’s Lenox Hill Hospital on Saturday night – January 7 – under the name Ingrid Jackson. The hospital is only a few miles away from the couple’s TriBeCa, Manhattan apartment where they spend their time whilst not touring.

There have been confusions to the name as some have believed it to be Ivy Blue Carter at first but E! reporter Ken Baker has confirmed that friends of the couple have said it to be named Blue Ivy Carter in a tweet which read: “Sorry, make that BLUE IVY CARTER is the Beyonce baby name they’re telling friends! more @eonline”.

E! reporter Ken Baker correctly clarifies Beyoncé’s and Jay –Z ‘s baby girl’s name on twitter

The name ‘Blue Ivy’ has been questioned as it is unusual for a name but it could mean something to Beyoncé and Jay –Z as the name could have a significance. As ‘Blue’ may simply mean the colour Blue it could also relate to Jay –Z’s series of albums that have ‘Blueprint ’ which include The Blueprint which was released in 2001, The Blueprint2: The Gift & The Curse which was dropped in 2002 and The Blueprint 3 in 2009.

Regarding to the name ‘Ivy’ could be a reference to the couple’s love for the number four which in Roman numeral for 4 is IV. Other aspects that relate is that Beyoncé and Jay – Z are:

–          That they married on 4th April in 2008

–          Jay-Z’s birthday is December 4

–          Beyoncé’s birthday is September 4

–          Beyoncé’s latest album is called 4 which was her fourth solo studio album

–          They also have matching IV tattoos on their wedding fingers

The last time Beyoncé was seen was on January 5, 2012 which was the first time since December 21, when rumours had started to begin to circulate on the internet that she had given birth.

The speculations came after that staff at St Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital had been told to prepare for a VIP arrival. But Sister Solange Knowles denied the rumours on behalf of Beyoncé as she tweeted: “Shout out to my sister for being THE cutest pregnant woman ever!”

Just after the birth of Blue Ivy Solange tweeted: “The most beautiful girl in the world.”

TMZ have also reported that the hospital expanded a plan to ensure the safety was tightened for the mother and child. Hospital executives worked with a large security force and discussed the best way of being secure in a meeting which was apparently held on Friday afternoon to prepare for the singer’s late night delivery on Saturday night.

Solange tweeted about Blue's arrival on her Twitter page

So far it seems the plan has worked since no pictures of Beyonce, Jay –Z or any members of their relatives have been pictured of entering or leaving the hospital building.

Celebrities have already begun to congratulate the couple on becoming first time parents as music mogul Russell Simmons tweeted: “congrats to my good friends Beyoncé and Jay-Z.”

Rihanna also added: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih”

P Diddy: “Congrats to jay and B! God Bless 🙂 ! And many more!”

Snooki: “Beyonce congrats on your baby gurl mama!!!! So happy for you , you deserve it sexpot”

Tyrese: “Congrats to you both .. You are loved..! Beyonce’ and Jay are new proud parents of a healthy baby girl .. Blessings!!”

Young Jeezy: “Congratulations to Jay-Z & Beyonce on baby Ivy Blue being born”

Kourtney Kardashian: “Congratulations to Beyonce, the 2nd Princess of Pop (behind Britney) for her new baby girl Ivy Blue”
