According to reports, new parents Beyonce and Jay-Z has been donating many of their expensive gifts to charity after receiving a laundry list of presents from their celebrity friends for newborn Blue Ivy Carter.

While they are grateful for all the great gifts, they want to give the majority of items to those less fortunate. “They’ve been sent literally hundreds of gifts in the past few days,” a source told the Daily Star newspaper. Oprah Winfrey gave a huge trunk of children’s books and others like P. Diddy, Kanye West, Rihanna and Mariah Carey have all been sending luxurious baby treats.”

The source continues: “Jay-Z and Beyonce have decided to donate a massive selection of the presents to local charities for young mothers. They’ve already got the most precious gift – their new baby daughter – so they want to help out other parents who haven’t been as fortunate.”

However, there is one item the couple plans to keep for their daughter – a diamond-encrusted dummy. The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: “A close friend of theirs in the music industry gave them a diamond-encrusted Cartier dummy – it must have cost $20,000. Blue has officially got her first piece of bling!”

In related news, Blue Ivy has become the youngest person ever to appear on the Billboard charts. The newborn’s cries, breathing, etc can be heard on Jay-Z’s new song, ‘Glory’, which was recorded 48 hours after her birth.
