The first photos of Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby girl Blue Ivy Carter have been released ... and she's gorgeous!

Five photos of the hip hop princess were posted on the couple's Tumblr Friday afternoon, along with a note that reads "We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives. The Carter Family"

Twitter and the internet world immediately went into a frenzy over the first look at the little girl. With a mane of thick, dark hair, Blue Ivy appears solo in two of the pics, is with her beaming mom in one, with her proud papa in another, and the last features a close-up of her little hand in Beyonce's.
