Update: Oh wait, it turns out that Oprah is not the godmother of Blue Ivy Carter. Us Magazine reports that Oprah’s close friend Gayle King broke the news this morning on CBS’ The Early Show. “It’s absolutely not true that she’s the godmother,” she said of Oprah. “Let me just say, if (that report is) true, it is news to her. It is news to her. You know, she was heading to South Africa when the baby was born.” Ha.
After we (meaning, the world) learned that Jay-Z and Beyonce had their first child — Billboard-ranking daughter Blue Ivy Carter — we also reported that they decided to donate most of the gifts they received to charity. Their friends apparently showed up big time with presents, including Oprah Winfrey. Of course. Well, it turns out that she’s not just a friend of Hov and Bey. She’s also been named the godmother of Blue Ivy, according to Idolator. Yeah, this kid’s set for life. And then some.
