It was reported on Thursday that Oprah Winfrey had been named as Blue Ivy’s godmother because of her close friendship with her parents.
But this morning, King took to The Early Show to deny these claims. She insisted that there is absolutely no truth in the rumor that her best friend Oprah is Blue Ivy’s godmother.
“She’s friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much,” Gayle said of Oprah.
But she said the TV host has not even seen the baby or sent a gift to the new parents and Blue Ivy. She was traveling in South Africa when the baby was born, so she says that is Oprah is to be the godmother it is news to her.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed the baby girl Blue Ivy on January 7 via a natural birth.
