Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed a daughter Saturday night in New York, the little one’s arrival coming via scheduled C-section

Friend and music mogul Russell Simmons was among the first to celebrate the arrival, tweeting the new parents: “congrats to my good friends Beyonce and Jay-Z.”

Rihanna gave baby Blue a warm welcome, tweeting: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih.”

Beyoncé memorably revealed that she was pregnant onstage at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.

“Your child could come to you and have any type of conversation. I always hope for that kind of open relationship,” said Jay-Z
