New parents, Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z, have been the talk of the town for weeks since the birth of their baby girl, Blue Ivy, born on January 7. They surprised the world on Friday (February 10) by posting the first public photos of the already-famous babe on a new Tumblr site.
Us Weekly caught up with a pal of Sasha Fierce, celebrity artist June Ambrose, on Saturday and chatted about the introduction of baby Blue. “B really really thought about this,” Ambrose shares. “And she really wanted to do it this way.”
Had the all-star duo sold the pics of their newest family member, they would have earned a pretty penny for the exclusive rights. “She just couldn’t imagine selling pictures of her baby. It just felt really good to see her do it under her terms.”
The proud parents are stepping into their new role together with ease. “They’re great. They were so good, before having this baby, when they were with children. I never thought for once it would be difficult. They’re grounded.”
