So when Williams hit the red carpet for this weekend’s BET Honors, reporters were curious if she’d met little Blue Ivy Carter. Well, she has and had nothing but glowing things to say. “She is absolutely gorgeous. We were all in love,” Williams told USA Today on the red carpet. “They [Beyonce and Jay-Z] have already settled into their role of being parents, and it’s just awesome to see. They might have inspired me a little bit, but this ring finger got to get a little more heavy first!”
Williams’ happy words come on the heels of a Twitter tongue-lashing after she was criticized for not offering well-wishes on the social network following Blue Ivy’s birth. “Let’s get ONE thing straight….I do NOT have to say congrats to someone when they’re NOT on twitter…ESPECIALLY when I talk or email them all the time….or when I’ll be physically present as well,” she wrote. “This is a beautiful, precious, private time between two people and excitement is to be expected but NOT disrespect! #churchdismissed”
Also on hand at the BET Honors was Kelly Rowland, who was a little more coy about B.I.C.
“That will be something that everybody will have to experience the same way I did,” Rowland said when asked who Blue Ivy looks like. “That’s for her parents to disclose, not myself.”
