Weeks after Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles-Carter welcomed their newborn daughter Blue Ivy Carter into the world, the music couple have now unveiled post-pregnancy photos.

The married couple surprised fans with photos of their newborn Friday (February 10) night.

Rapper Jay-Z and wife Beyonce unveiled highly-anticipated pictures of their new baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter on Friday, opting to post intimate family shots on social networking site Tumblr rather than selling them to the highest bidder. The couple posted five photos which show the newborn, already sporting a head of long black hair, being cuddled by her proud parents and capturing intimate moments of family life. (Reuters)

Included with the photos is a personal message courtesy of Young Hov.

A series of five intimate images show two photos of a peaceful baby girl with a swath of dark hair wrapped in blankets, two photos each showing Beyonce and Jay-Z by themselves holding Blue Ivy in a cream-colored onesie, and a final, touching photo of adult fingertips touching the baby's tiny hand. Jay-Z also included a message with the photos, which read, "We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives!! The Carter Family."

A few days ago, Beyonce's mother spoke on her granddaughter's beauty.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z's newborn daughter Blue Ivy is already charming all the right people, including her grandma. "She's doing great," a beaming Tina Knowles told PEOPLE at the Runway to Win fundraising reception for Barack Obama in New York. "She's beautiful." As for her duties as a doting grandma, Knowles calls them "amazing," adding, "It's the second best job I've ever had." Although her adoration for the new addition to her family was certainly instantaneous, Knowles is waiting to decide which parent little Blue resembles most. "She's only a month old," she says. "So we have to give her a minute." (PEOPLE)

Last month, former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland described Blue Ivy.

"She's just more precious than a diamond. She's just so stunning. I'm so happy for my sister and her husband," Rowland said in an interview. "She's beautiful. [laughs] [Will I see the baby every chance I get?] Absolutely. I have to be a good aunt. [laughs] She's an incredible mother. I'm so incredibly proud of her. So proud of her. You know what? She's in mommy-ville and I'm so happy for her and her husband's in daddy-ville and the baby is very beautiful. Beautiful." (E! News)
