Blue Ivy Carter's first photo shoot: See pics of Beyonce and Jay-Z's new baby

blue-ivy-carter-tumblr.jpg Blue Ivy Carter's already spawned a hit song ( her dad Jay-Z's "Glory") and had her name trademarked since her Jan. 7, 2012 birth. Pretty good for someone who's only been around for a month.

But we should have expected nothing less from the newest member of Hollywood royalty, whose impending arrival was announced in the most adorable way when momma Beyonce rubbed her belly at the MTV VMAs. 

Now Bey and Jay have released the first pics of their bundle of joy via an informal tumblr called Hello Blue Ivy Carter, which launched with just a simple note from the Carter family reading, "We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives."

So just how adorable is lil' Blue? In short, very adorable. While we're loving all the pics, the shot of Jay-Z grinning as he holds his daughter is our favorite. We love the one of Beyonce beaming too, but we're jealous that she looks so stunning after just giving birth so we'll give the win to Jay.
