At just one day old, she’s already trending on Twitter thanks to an abundance of congratulations, including one from Rihanna who tweeted ‘Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih.’
According to the New York Daily News, Beyonce checked into the Upper East Side hospital under the name Ingrid Jackson on Saturday, booking out the entire fourth floor of the hospital for a cool $1.3million. Takeaway food and bottles of red wine were said to have been delivered to the hospital's private wing over the weekend.
