Blogs, discussion boards, and social media sites went crazy over the news of multi-platinum recording artist Beyoncé being pregnant. Perhaps what the masses may not have anticipated though, was Oprah Winfrey being the godmother of the newest addition to the Carter family.
Blue Ivy Carter was born on January 7 in New York City. Gayle King, best friend of Oprah Winfrey, said that the rumor isn’t true. When asked by Us Weekly, a representative from Beyoncé’s camp chose not to comment, but King cleared the air. “It’s absolutely not true that she’s the godmother,” King explained.
“She’s friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much. She’s working on sending them a baby gift. She hasn’t even had time to send a baby gift because she’s been away,” King said on CBS’ Early Show.
According to her BFF, Oprah was in route to South Africa when Blue was born.
It is also alleged that the power couple have asked Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith — Jay-Z’s best friend — to be the godfather.
Gwyneth Paltrow, however was one of the first to tweet about the new Carter. Will we be hearing news that she is in fact the godmother? Kelly Rowland? Tell us what you think!
