Blue Ivy Makes Jay-Z A Proud Papa (PHOTO)

Jay-Z made collective hearts everywhere go "awww" when he ushered daughter Blue Ivy Carter out of a helicopter in New York on Thursday, holding his seven-month-old baby close to his chest. As usual for the only child of the hip-hop mogul and Beyonce, Blue Ivy rocked some seriously cool gear too -- this time, baby blue headphones, presumably to block out the noise from the chopper.
