Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of pop star Beyonce and rap and hip hop legend Jay-Z, has left hospital and gone home with her parents early Tuesday morning.
Officials at Lenox Hill Hospital have confirmed the departure of their famous new patient, according to the Daily News and E! News.
It has been reported that Beyonce and Jay-Z managed to outwit a mass of waiting photographers and media reporters by leaving the hospital via the uptown New York hospital's side gate around 1:30 a.m.
Two SUVs with tinted windows were seen blocking traffic on East 76th street to allow the van carrying the famous music duo and their new baby girl away from the hospital.
Blue Ivy Carter has already been featured in news reports in media across the globe, and has received well-wishes from a hoard of celebrities. She has even made her debut to the world singing, or more accurately crying, on Jay-Z’s new song “Glory,” which he released in the hours following the birth of his Blue, his first daughter.
In related controversy, a number of parents have complained that Beyonce’s security staff ruined their own hospital visits to see their own children by blocking off mass sections of the hospital. Lenox Hill has denied, however, that any patients were temporarily denied access to the neonatal intensive care unit to accommodate the VIPs.
