Preempting the magazine cover wars for Carter family pictures with baby Blue Ivy, Jay-Z and Beyonce have posted a handful of heart-melting family snapshots on their website. Sweetly candid, the pics show Jay and B looking radiant while Blue Ivy looks tiny and, well, a little hairy. In an adorable way. We have to say, these shots are way better than the creepily staged family portraits that usually accompany a celebrity baby unveiling.
Also in Blue Ivy news, Jezebel is reporting that Gwyneth Paltrow's present to the newborn was a fancy Bugaboo stroller, which strikes us as a little... bland. Clearly she missed our Blue Ivy gifting guide.
