Jay -Z has appeared in public for the first time since the birth of his and Beyonce's baby daughter Ivy Blue.
The rap star, who was attending the re-opening of his New York nightclub 40/40, was greeted by thousands of fans and photographers all congratulating him on the new arrival.
As he arrived at the venue he beamed at the crowds and seemed full of pride.
The event was only a couple of weeks after the birth, so wife Beyonce stayed at home with baby Blue.
