The singer's former Destiny's Child band mate speaks about Bey's new arrival.

Beyonce's former Destiny's Child band mate Michelle Williams has revealed that her baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter is "absolutely gorgeous". 

The R&B star said Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z are already adjusting to their role as new parents. 

Michelle told USA Today: "She is absolutely gorgeous. We were all in love. Beyonce and Jay-Z have already settled into their role of being parents, and it's just awesome to see." 

Beyonce welcomed the birth of Blue earlier this month. 

In a statement at the time, the couple said the birth "was the best experience of both of our lives".

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.
