It’s only been a little over a month since megastar Beyoncé, 30, welcomed her first child Blue Ivy Carter with her rapper hubby Jay Z but it seems as though the Love On Top songstress has taken to motherhood quite well.
Since giving birth to her darling daughter, the self-proclaimed workaholic has been hibernating in the couple’s New York mansion and $6.85 million Tribeca loft nursing baby Blue.
“She has been totally doting on Blue,” an inside source reveals to Us Weekly. “She’s up whenever the baby’s up!”
“She’s enjoying this time off,” the source adds.
The power couple recently decided to debut their gorgeous daughter via a rather untraditional route – online.
The Knowles-Carters posted five intimate family shots heir newborn – already sporting a head of long black hair – and issued the statement,
We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives, The Carter family.”

Contrary to previous reports that Whitney Houston’s funeral would be a public event at the Prudential Center, the service will be a private one, according to The Associated Press. The funeral will take place on Saturday at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, which holds 1,500 people, Whigham Funeral Home told reporters. Gospel singer and Houston family friend Marvin Winans will deliver the eulogy.
Meanwhile, a source close to Bobby Brown denied TMZ’s story that Whitney’s family was preventing Bobby Brown from seeing daughter Bobbi Kristina and from attending the funeral. While Houston’s family is in New Jersey, her 18-year-old daughter remains in California with her father and Brown’s other children, ABC News reports.
“My daughter Bobbi Kristina is doing much better,” Brown said in a statement on Tuesday. “We continue to provide love and support to Bobbi Kristina. She is dealing with the tragedy of her mother’s death and would prefer to do it outside of the public eye. I ask again that our privacy be respected.”

Proud papa Chuck Liddell was snapped taking his three leading ladies – wife Heidi Northcott and daughters Trista, 13, and Guinevere Bella, 1 month – for a bite to eat at Marmalade Cafe in Calabasas, Calif. on Saturday (February 11).
At one point, it looks like the UFC Champion – who is father to Trista and son Cade, 12, from previous relationships – outstretched his arm so the paps could get a great pic of his sleeping babe in pink.
The happy family was also recently spotted at the grocery store with their newborn daughter.

New parents, Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z, have been the talk of the town for weeks since the birth of their baby girl, Blue Ivy, born on January 7. They surprised the world on Friday (February 10) by posting the first public photos of the already-famous babe on a new Tumblr site.
Us Weekly caught up with a pal of Sasha Fierce, celebrity artist June Ambrose, on Saturday and chatted about the introduction of baby Blue. “B really really thought about this,” Ambrose shares. “And she really wanted to do it this way.”
Had the all-star duo sold the pics of their newest family member, they would have earned a pretty penny for the exclusive rights. “She just couldn’t imagine selling pictures of her baby. It just felt really good to see her do it under her terms.”
The proud parents are stepping into their new role together with ease. “They’re great. They were so good, before having this baby, when they were with children. I never thought for once it would be difficult. They’re grounded.”
