Superstar Beyoncé Knowles has congratulated Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on the birth of their daughter. The singer took to her website to post a picture of the happy new parents together. "Congratulations Kim & Kanye. Enjoy this beautiful moment together," she captioned the snap. Beyoncé, who is mum to 16-month-old Blue Ivy, has a special connection to the couple as her husband Jay-Z is good friends with Kanye and collaborated with him on his album Watch The Throne.

Beyoncé was invited to Kim's lavish baby shower earlier this month but didn't attend the glamorous festivities. To make up for her absence, she and Jay-Z sent an extravagant gift – a £9,000 Swarovski crystal-studded high chair designed by Carla Monchen. The pair reportedly own a similar one for their daughter. Meanwhile, Kim's mother Kris Jenner has revealed that the little girl is "doing great and is beautiful".

The Kardashian matriarch played the proud grandmother as she revelled in the latest addition to her clan, Kim's baby girl , who was born prematurely on Saturday and is being monitored in an incubator. "We're all fine. We're all good and extremely happy and thrilled for the new baby ," Kris told HLN. "She's doing great and she's beautiful ! So very exciting." Kris was attending the Emmy Awards with Kim's best friend, Jonathan Cheban, who was just as excited about the new arrival. "Kim is doing amazing and couldn't be happier. I'm so thrilled for her and Kanye," he said. "Amazing night at the Emmys! @krisjenner ... Time for dinner #crustaceans," he later tweeted, alongside a photo of Kris and him at the event. Shortly after her granddaughter's birth, Kris took to Twitter to show her love for Kim's rapper boyfriend Kanye West. The matriarch hasn’t been able to hide her excitement since the baby's birth and posted, "HAPPY FATHERS DAY @kanyewest!!!!!" Jonathan has spent the past week at Kim's side in her Los Angeles home, leading up to her unexpected delivery. The friends were seen laughing and having fun while filming scenes for Keeping Up With The Kardashians. "Fun day of filming with kimkardashian ... #AintNothinGonnaStopUs," posted Jonathan, sharing a picture on Instagram of the duo. He also visited Kim in the hospital on both Saturday and Sunday.
