On Monday, Jay-Z posted a new song titled “Glory” on his website,, with the statement, “Life just got REALLY good.”  He was clearly referring to the birth of his baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter, with Beyonce.   According to, Jay-Z’s lyrics include, “You’re a child of destiny/you’re the child of my destiny/you’re my child with the child from Destiny’s Child/that’s a hell of a recipe.”  He added, “The most beautifulest thing in this world/is daddy’s little girl.”  Pharrell Williams produced the emotional and personal track.  A baby’s cry is heard at the end of the song.  Among other things, Jay-Z also revealed the couples’ struggle with a miscarriage.  “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/we was afraid you disappeared/but nah, baby, you magic.”

What are some unique ways to welcome your child to the world?

 Cupid’s Advice:

So maybe you’re not Jay-Z and producing a hip-hop track is not an option to introduce your new baby, but there are plenty of other special ways to welcome your new child.  Cupid has a few:

1. Make a photo collage to share: Document your pregnancy all the way up to the big moment, and create a photomontage.  Putting something together is a project you can work on with your partner.  Your closest friends and family will appreciate your effort and will enjoy your new baby.

2. Send out a birth announcement: Let the world know how proud you are of your new baby with adorable snapshots on a note card.  Without being too personal, you can let everyone know you have brought a beautiful new life into the world.

3. Welcome party: Your family and friends are all going to be dying to meet your new bundle of joy, so why not throw a party?  Let everyone share your joy and meet your baby all in one shot.  It’s also easier for you in the end (not having to look presentable every day for a different family member).
