Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed a daughter Saturday night in New York, the little one's arrival coming via scheduled C-section, mutliple sources confirm to E! News. And the pop 'n' hip-hop princess' name? Drumroll, please... Blue Ivy Carter! (At least that's what Jay-Z is telling pals at this point--the couple's reps have not immediately responded to calls seeking comment.) (E! News)

Beyonce definitely still has a bun in the oven!
