Blue Ivy’s dad, Jay-Z, proved that her birth isn’t slowing him down.
Jay-Z was the main attraction at the grand reopening of 40/40, his nightclub in NYC. This is his first public appearance since his wife, Beyonce gave birth to their daughter, Blue Ivy, on January 7.
Naturally, he was rushed by reporters, photographers and well-wishers on the red carpet. When the crowd congratulated him he replied with a huge smile and a simple, ‘thank you’. Friends offering him their congratulations that night included, Ashanti, Russell Simmons, Swizz Beatz, Selita Ebanks, even hard-partying billionaire Warren Buffett!
While he was out for the night, Beyonce and his daughter were at home.
Jay-Z wasn’t without family at the bash – his sister Michelle was overheard telling her friends that everyone is fine, though there is no word on when new Mom Beyonce will make her first public appearance.
The new dad’s night wasn’t over when he left his club at 1, instead he went to 10ak in Manhattan’s Meatpacking district, where a source reveals, “He wasn’t doing anything crazy,” a source reports. “Just chilling, laughing, and talking.”
