Big Papa is in the house!
Last night, Jay-Z made his first public appearance since becoming a daddy at the grand re-opening of 40/40, his NYC club. He flew solo for the evening, with Beyonce and little Blue Ivy staying safe and sound at her "executive suite" at Lenox Hill Hospital, but he was happy to chat briefly with the throngs of reporters and photographers on the red carpet about his little family.
He happily thanked everyone for their well wishes and invited them into his club with a huge smile. He was spotted shaking hands and accepting everyone's congratulations while partying with the likes of Ashanti, Russell Simmons, Swizz Beatz and Selita Ebanks. He was also seen doing the classic Dad move of showing everyone who wanted to see pictures of his new baby girl on his phone to friends, "beaming" from ear to ear the whole time!
Such an exciting time in his life! We're so thrilled for him!
Send our love to Bey and the Bey-by!
