Jay-Z has already released a song about their daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, who arrived over the weekend.
The song is titled "Glory feat. B.I.C." and it includes a sample of the newborn crying.
In it, Jay-Z reveals where he and Beyonce conceived their new addition: "You was made in Paris."
He also addresses a little bit of the the significance of the name "Blue Ivy":
"Baby I paint the sky blue, my greatest creation was you."
Three of Jay-Z's albums have the word "blue" in their titles.
And some say "Ivy" likely stands for "IV" -- the roman numeral for 4.
Both Jay-Z and Beyonce celebrate their birthdays on 4ths -- hers is Sept. 4, his is Dec. 4 -- and they were married on 4/4/2008.
In the song's most personal revelation of all, Jay-Z opens up about the couple's trouble conceiving:
"False alarms and false starts, all made better by the sound of your heart." He later adds, "last time the miscarriage was so tragic."
The proud parents have released this official birth announcement:
"We are happy to announce the arrival of our beautiful daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, born on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7 lbs and it was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support. Beyonce & Jay-Z."
Reports have swirled that the couple shelled out $1.3 million to take over an entire floor of Manhattan's Lenox Hill Hospital, and that hospital staffers had to turn over their cell phones and cover security cameras.
The hospital insists those reports are untrue.
Additionally, one other new parent alleged that access to his child was limited because of the security surrounding Blue and her visitors.
"No security plan that we or the Carters' security team put in place would have prevented or delayed families from gaining access" Lenox Hill said in a statement, adding, "To date, no families have complained to the hospital about being denied access to the NICU."
