According to Mediatakeout:
According to an EXTREMELY reliable insider, Jigga and Bey have chosen OPRAH WINFREY to be the godmother, and Jay’s best friend Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith, the godfather. So why Oprah . . . Well word is that Oprah has become a CLOSE PERSONAL friend to both Jay and Bey. And the pair wanted to give the “godparents” role to people NOT ALREADY related to them by family (i.e. Solange, or Bey’s BF – her cousin Angie)
Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that the new GODMOTHER is the most POWERFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD not named MICHELLE OBAMA!!!
