Kelly Rowland Buys Bob Marley Onesie for Blue Ivy

One love! Kelly Rowland is wasting no time spoiling pals Beyoncé and Jay-Z‘s new baby girl.

Just three days after the couple welcomed daughter Blue Ivy Carter, the U.K. X Factor judge popped into upscale kids boutique, Lucky Wang, in New York City to snap up a green long-sleeved onesie ($24) featuring Bob Marley’s iconic image.

It seems the former Destiny’s Child member was able to figure out what to get the world’s most famous baby despite confessing she had no clue a few months ago.

“I have no idea what I’m going to buy Beyoncé at the baby shower because Jay is going to buy that little girl every single thing possible,” Rowland told Bang Showbiz last November.

Sarah S. on

I believe the one she purchased was a short-sleeve version with no writing on it.

Reesca on

Who cares about what people are buying this child?? Since when are shopping sprees considered baby news? I’m so sick of reading about this baby already. The only reason I come back to this site is to see if Jennifer Garner has given birth.

Vida on

Damn Reesca…what did this 2 day old baby do to you?

nina on

so cute!

Ressca, you obviously care because you took the time to read it and post a comment.

G on

Must…get…life…

Alisha on

ummm, lmao wth? please let us know when she takes her next dump and who bought the diaper she will wear and what brand it is. the anticipation is overwhelming.

LaKesha on

Well I want to hear about this baby, not so much the Garner baby. People have preferences.

annabelle on

I like the green color. Blue is going to be one very well loved, and spoiled baby

Neiya on

If you didn’t want to read about this baby, why did you come here and then make a comment, Reesca?

Paula on

I’m so over all celeb news (babies, divorces,etc) but do believe in fair game. If we have to listen/read about every other celeb’s baby lil Blue Ivy should be no exception.

Anonymous on

that is actually cute!

Janie on

I’m still trying to find out if she faked the whole pregnancy and used a surragate! #kindaboredtoday

Guest on

I hope she added the gift receipt.

Guest on

Of course u do LaaaaaKesha.

Nikki on

Who cares!!!!

Alexandra on

Sheesh, yeah, that will keep the baby happy when daddy’s away all the time. Not trying to sound bitter here, but kids don’t need lots of stuff, they need to be with their parents. I just can’t imagine them not having 10 nannies with them all the time. But I guess that’s the fate of many celeb kids.

Alexandra on

This onesie is pretty cute by the way ( though 24 bugs is way to much for this tiny piece of fabric ^^ ), love the color!

Carrie on

I really don’t understand the negative comments, and to even suggest that Beyonce used a surrogate is just plain rude. This precious child, which EVERY child is, is only 3 days old, and she is already being hated on. How would you feel if you just gave birth and people said they were tired of hearing about your baby? Let baby Blue Ivy come into this world with peace and love surrounding her, and for all of you with your negative comments, leave them for the therapist which you most definitely should be seeking for anger management issues.

Bettanica on

@ Reesca.. give me a break, Jennifer Gardner is on her 5th child I believe? How is that news? Congrats Bey And Jay, and the onsie is adorable!

Lia on

@ Vida – I think its just an awful lot of unnecessary attention. People have babies, Beyonce is not the only one.

Catherine on

Amen Nina. It’s not Beyonce’s fault that she is much more popular than Jennifer Garner….besides hearing about Benifer having a baby is like hearing about Brangelina…OLD NEWS!!

KarenB on

Why did you bother to read the article then Reesca?? I don’t see anything in the hesdline that pertains to Jennifer Garner. That should have been your first clue to move on!

Karen on

Boooo. Can we let little kids be little kids for at least a little while.

jo on

WHO GIVES A C&*P …………………… seriously

Deb on

I thought the same thing Guest..LMAO!

eatingchoc on

no, she only has two kids and one is on the way,, referring to jennifer garner..

Catherine on

@ Lia – I agree, it’s a lot of attention – but blame it all on the media…and this is nothing compared to Angelina’s first pregnancy.

J on

So Michelle Williams gets scolded for not congratulating her online and all these people who are buying gifts and congratulating online get praised? I don’t get it, is it a contest to see who can buttkiss the most?

boohoobytch on

sorry but I have to agree with some….she’s a rich kid with rich parents – she’s going to get a lot of shyt…most babies do, not a BFD

star on

Well unless your a doctor at Lenox Hill or were in between her legs you’ll never know so give it up already. Its their baby and she will be loved by many.

sweeti on

Don’t hate congratulate…i am so happy for Bey and Jay.

Anonymous on

It’s is so sad that people are so rude when it comes to Beyonce and her child. If you don’t like her then don’t read or comment PERIOD. If she use a Nanny then so be it, I am pretty sure a lot of you parents have used sitters at one point or another. Are you upset that you do not have the money to spend that she does???? And the comment about the father not being around is just wrong and bitter.

Kira on

now….are we going to be treated to nonsense news like this on a daily basis so that they are in the news daily like the Kardashians!!!

ecl on

I’m pretty sure that a lot of the negative comments are due to racism … as the comments by Guest and Deb confirm.

mel on

I don’t understand why people hate on people they don’t know over the internet and make assumptions about their lives. What is missing in your lives to make you question if Beyonce used a segregate to have her baby. I would like to think that as women and mothers you can understand the pain of wanted to experience being pregnant and can’t. Its not us to judge her question if she was pregnant or no, its just plain cruel.

atypical on

still asking. . . .
what are each of us doing that helps to promote social and economic equality–globally?
what are our priorities?
peace

Catherine on

Yea to Neiya! Janie & Bettanica, I see some anger or hate management classes comin’ yo way! Bettanica, genius that u r, us misspelled Jennifer Garner’s name, idiot! & if she did have a surrogate, it is none of your business, mine, or anyone’s except Bey & J! U r foolish; get a life to replace your laptop & learn to spell in your spare time! We r interested or we wouldn’t be here. I’m sure she will have materialistic things that most of us can’t provide; but don’t hate the baby, unless u want to go to hell. Hell is where people that hate babies need to go, yesterday! Why do people that have nothing hate those who do? If u would take a break from hating, maybe u could get a job or a LIFE & have some creature comforts of your own! Some of u haters sound like a 12 year old talkin’ trash about the popular girl, which u obviously never were! Let 2012 bring love, peace, jobs!

rafiki on

God — the HATE! Some of you people need a therapist! She’s a 3-day old infant. What has she done wrong? Take your negative vibes away! This is the baby blog. Poor baby Blue… it’s not her fault she’s been born into a celebrity home, a silly name or a media circus. Give the kid a break. Be an adult and send her peace and blessings. And people wonder why they have miscarriages and infertility — well, it’s no wonder! Look at the vile that spews from your hearts; you’re attacking an defenseless, innocent soul and you forget that karma is a bitch!

Justsayin on

If you dont want to read about celebrities, their babies, divorces & relationship etc. then why are you on the people website??? There are other magazines and newpapers you could be reading….

Reesca on

@ Bettanica, no, she’s on her third. And I can guarantee you she doesn’t have such a huge ego that she requires an entire maternity wing to herself. I’m sure she realizes that all babies are special, not just her own. No respect for Beyonce or Jay-Z on this one. Just because they sing doesn’t give them the right to make other people feel like second class citizens. They’re not that damned special anyways. What charities do they support?? How do they give back to others? They DON’T!!

Niche on

Not a huge fan and I’ve surely had my doubts about the whole pregnancy but some of you people need to get a grip and stop with the racist comments. Congratulate them on the birth of their blessing and leave them be. Jealousy is a dangerous thing especially when let loose. Sounds like you have more issues than just disliking two celebrities. Hateful bitches.

Disgusted on

I wasn’t going to comment but I have to. @Deb and Guest typical, of course you’re hiding behind your laptops and making racists comments. I will bet anything that you wouldn’t be calling Laaaaaaakeesha with that sarcastic tone while standing in Harlem. Typical scared trash!!

Catherine on

@ecl – you’re right. Brad Pitt CHEATED on his wife with Angelina but America couldn’t get enough of them. Take another powerful couple – who happens to be black- and all the bigots come out. Go figure.

Catherine on

I see another celeb just had a baby and nothing but praises posted for them.

Kate on

So, it’s not possible she purchased it for any other child in the world?

J on

Catherine, you were the one that brought up race. Grow up…

CHACHA on

OMG….YOU PEOPLE ARE BEYOND CRAZY……Yes, if they were WHITE….they would have NOT received all the negative comments. YES, THEY DO DONATE TO CHARITY….AND YOU KNOW DAMN WELL….THEY DID NOT CLOSE A ENTIRE HOSPITAL WING…

I just can’t believe all the HATE! I swear this has something to do with the fact that they are a POWERFUL,….RICH…BLACK COUPLE….

HappyGoLucky on

FACT, They did NOT close an ENTIRE hospital wing.

FACT, NO ONE was kept from the NICU.

FACT, Beyonce WAS pregnant.

So all of that being said, please grow up some of you. I am white and think that this is a DISGRACE to the HUMAN race. People going off about things that are NONE of their business.

I agree with a few of the comments posted in different aspects. One major one is the fact that Blue Ivy is a BABY so why are you attacking her? Why are you attackng her parents? What have they done to you? Is it because they are BLACK, RICH, AND POWERFUL? It is quite OBVIOUS that you are an EXTREMELY jealous person who is sitting behind a lap top AFRAID to face the world head on and make a life like they did. I DO recommend that you seek a therapist IMMEDIATELY.

Shyreeta on

@Reesca Do you actually KNOW anything about this couple? I’m not sure that you do. If you google their names, you will find that both of them have given money and done performances for charitable organizations.

Jay-Z did a documentary on the global water shortage and he contributed to Hurricane Katrina victims. He also funds a charity that his mother runs for scholarships for urban youth.

Beyonce and Kelly Rowland have a charity called the Survivor Foundation and they helped fund a community center in conjunction with their church home in Houston. She was an ambassador for World Children’s Day in 2005 and both she and her husband have made appearances at many school functions to speak to children.

There are many more charitable causes that they are affiliated with, but I thought I’d just give you a little taste. So to answer your question…THEY DO!

Another thing, how in the HECK do you know the size of Jennifer Garner’s ego? I mean, since you GUARANTEED that she doesn’t have a big ego! SMH…funny (in a really sad way)

librababe on

adorable. love the lime green, bet blue will look positively adorbs in it. =,)

purrfect persian on

I’m happy for Jay and Beyonce! It IS a shame but let those bitter old WHITE ladies post they’re comments…it the ONLY place they can do it!!

Shyreeta on

@J Catherine is the one who mentioned race directly and explicitly. This, I believe, was done in response to the ‘Laaaa Kesha’ comment that was made by Guest and cosigned by Deb. I find people in this country hilarious. Doesn’t anyone think that others can see the racism that is ‘hidden’ in certain comments?

Let me spell it out for you. The implication is this-LaKesha is presumed to be a Black woman, so OF COURSE she is going to care so much about Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Black baby. I picked up on that as soon as I read it. So did a few others.

And you told her to ‘grow up’? So, when you call someone on their racism, whether it is blatant or implied, you are somehow immature or childish? Yes, I can totally see the logical progression to that conclusion!!

Jillian on

@ Reesca.. give me a break, Jennifer Gardner is on her 5th child I believe? How is that news? Congrats Bey And Jay, and the onsie is adorable!

- Bettanica on January 10th, 2012

I believe you mean Jennifer Garner. When did she have babies three and four? I am a fan of hers…..how on earth did I miss that one!

Are you the doctor or on staff at the hospital? Because this is the only way you would know if she was pregnant, if the floor was open to everyone and the nicu was as well. I am not saying I don’t believ those statements, but I am not going o say they are FACTS, because I don’t have a clue! Celebs lie everyday! I am also white and don’t think the color of my skin has anything to do with anything. I hate when people bring it up and try to make this about white versus black. I have seen nothing to suggest it has anything to do with the color of their skin, but rather who they present themselves in the media. This becomes people’s “business” to comment on when they publically speak on their lives all the time. That is how life goes! Just becomes someone doesn’t like them, doesn’t mean it’s because they are black or jealous……nor does it mean they need therapy. Typing in capital letters won’t make it any more true……

Why do people care and why are folks getting so mad?? She had a baby. Ok…..I’m sure that neither of them are any of your friends so why are you attacking eachother about people who don’t even know you breathe? Congrats and all that. Calm down. Raising your blood pressure over nothing. Sheesh. I have to laugh because it’s so wild that people can’t voice their opinions however they may feel. For or against this being news (I’m on the fence), it’s whatever. Take a breather.

getoverit on

I for one would prefer news about the garner baby any day. Beyonce having a baby was a publicity seeking event from the get go. Yes they are famous, yes they have loads of money and yes, anyone who gives birth to a healthy baby is blessed but come on. Jennifer and ben might be old news but that might be viewed as maturity. Having a child for most people means your world changes and there is this little being totally dependent on you. Some people just know that that becomes a priority… so Jay Z might plan on buy every single thing for her.. but is that really what a child needs. I call it overindulgence, wasteful and irresponsible. There are perfectly respectable human beings who grew up sooo much less and turned out model citizens.. can you really say the same of kids with super rich, over indulging parents.. PARIS HILTON and that kardasian chick comes to mind (*o*)aaarrrrggghhh

Shannon on

Love it!

Kells on

This is H E A T.. It looks nice

Blue Ivy? Wasnt she a baddie in Batman with George Clooney? Instead of buying this tat maybe it would have been better to put the money to good use, to charity or to the homeless?
