'Love On Top' star's daughter is tipped to secure a number one single before 16th birthday.

Beyonce and Jay-Z's new daughter Blue Ivy Carter might only be two days old but she has already been tipped to become a child star.

Bookies William Hill are offering 25/1 that the 'Love On Top' star's baby will secure a UK number one single before her 16th birthday.

With Beyonce as her mother and Jay-Z as her father, Blue is also 8/1 to have a number one with either parent.

"If Blue Ivy has anywhere near the voice of her mother, she will undoubtedly be a star, if not, she could always rap like her father," a William Hill spokesperson said.

Beyonce gave birth to Blue Ivy Carter at a hospital in New York over the weekend.

A host of Beyonce and Jay-Z's friends, including Rihanna, JLS star Oritse, Cheryl Cole and the 'Love On Top' star's sister Solange Knowles, have all congratulated the couple on the birth of their first child.

Beyonce's pregnancy has been the subject of huge intrigue since she first announced that she was expecting her first child at the MTV Video Music Awards last August.

The couple married secretly in April 2008 after nearly six years together.
