Beyonce Drops Hint on Origin of Blue Ivy Name
(CNN) — One of the great mysteries may have finally been revealed.
Why did Jay-Z and Beyonce name their daughter “Blue Ivy” anyway?
Well, it turns out the answer might have something to do with a special tree.
On Thursday, fans wondered if mom Beyonce was offering an explanation of sorts via her new Tumblr page.
Standing underneath a gorgeous tree while vacationing with husband Jay-Z in Croatia, a still-pregnant Beyonce says, “We woke up this morning and took a nice little walk and passed by this beautiful blue tree. I think it’s Blue Ivy, which will be quite appropriate.”
The revelation was made in a video nestled amidst the numerous personal photos the singer shares on her new site, including pics with husband Jay-Z, sister Solange and others. The images and video clips are accompanied by the all-encompassing caption: “I Am… This is my life, today, over the years — through my eyes. My family, my travels, my love. This is where I share with you, This will continue to grow as I do.”
To top it off, the superstar singer is now also tweeting from her Twitter account, @Beyonce. In her first post, timed along with her website’s release, she writes, “Hey World, It’s B! I’m so excited to invite you to my new http://beyonce.com — we’ve been working hard, and it’s finally ready for you XO.”
