Posted by Katie F. on January 26th, 2012

Blue Ivy Carter is set to have a fabulous life just because of who her parents are. As if things weren’t already going well for Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter, life just managed to get even better. She has a famous godmother to look up to now too – no, Beyonce didn’t ask her sister Solange or close friend Gwyneth Paltrow. Instead, the couple has chosen Oprah Winfrey to be Blue’s godmother. They’ve grown very close to the talk show icon in the past few years and wanted to make sure she was a part of their child’s life. Oprah already gave Beyonce a trunk full of books as a baby present for Blue – just imagine the kind of Christmases and birthdays that child will have. As for the godfather, Jay-Z’s friend Tyran Smith was honored with the title. Jay-Z and Beyonce wanted to make sure the godparents they chose weren’t blood-related.

Many other celebrities choose fellow stars to be godparents to their children too. Here are few famous couples that want their kids to grow up around no one but celebs.
