Blue Ivy Carter is probably one of the most powerful infants in the world. With music royalty Beyonce and Jay-Z for parents and a Billboard record already under her belt at just a few days old, we’re sure baby Blue has a bright future in front of her.

But just to add to their new daughter’s swag factor, Hov and Bey have reportedly named one of the most powerful women in media as her godmother. According to Media Takeout, Oprah has accepted the task of godmothering the child! Jay-Z’s often rapped-about best friend Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith will reportedly be the godfather.

That means Jigga and Queen B have asked Oprah, who has become a close friend of the couple, to be Blue Ivy’s godmama over Bey’s bestie and former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland, and Beyonce’s sister Solange. And what about their favorite fellow celeb couple and parents Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow?

Oprah has already gifted the newborn a trunk full of children’s books, and well, she’s Oprah. What more could a kid ask for?
