MANHATTAN — Beyonce and Jay-Z's new baby daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, has a godmother who is even more of a mogul than her parents.

The hip-hop power couple chose Oprah Winfrey for the honorary duty, MediaTakeOut.com reported Wednesday.

Oprah is reportedly a close friend of the couple and they wanted to choose someone not already related to their family, according to MediaTakeOut.

Jay-Z reportedly chose his best friend, Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith, as the baby's godfather.

Blue Ivy was born at Lenox Hill Hospital on the Upper East Side Earlier this month.
