Happy birthday to the future Princess of the People, Blue Ivy Carter! Since her introduction to this world a year ago, mama B and daddy Jay have worked hard to keep their beautiful baby girl safe from the prying public eye (even though they know we are dyyyyyyying to see who baby Blue takes after!). Unfortunately, there’s one thing they couldn’t keep from us: their little girl’s name. After a brief mix-up (is it Ivy Blue?
