The Birth Of Beyoncé’s Baby Prevented Other Parents From Visiting Their Newborns

Outrageously Overzealous Security

As we should all know by now, Beyoncé and hubby Jay-Z welcomed the birth of their blessed first born child late Saturday night at Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC … a darling little girl they named Blue Ivy. While many folks inside B-Jay‘s inner circle are extolling the “beauty” of princess Blue Ivy, today we learn of the ugly side of the baby girl’s birth.
