Beyonce 's former Destiny's Child band mate Kelly Rowland has spoken to People magazine about how naturally the singer has taken to motherhood. She is quoted in the magazine as saying "She was born to be a mother. She's wonderful." Michelle Williams has also told Usa Today "She's doing fabulous, she (Blue Ivy) is absolutely gorgeous. We were all in love".
Beyonce and her partner Jay Z enlisted the help of extra security at Lenox Hill Hospital, where their first child, Blue Ivy Carter was born on January 7, 2012. Williams told reporters that the Destiny's Child members were all shocked that Knowles became the first of the band to have a child and told them "We were very shocked. We were laughing with each other the other day and she was like, 'Can y'all believe it? I was the anti - like no children for me,' and she's the first one. So it was so amazing to see her."
Blue Ivy's father Jay Z announced the birth of his first child by posting a song on his website entitled 'Glory.' A report from The Sun today (January 16, 2012) suggests that he has said that following the birth of his daughter, the rapper will be toning down the bad language in his songs and will no longer use the word "b*tch." According to the report, he has written a poem which includes the lines "Before I got in the game, made a change and got rich/I didn't think hard about using the word bitch/I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it/Now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it."
