Gayle King says Oprah is not the godmother of Blue Ivy Carter.
Since the birth of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s newborn Blue Ivy, the rumor mill hasn’t stopped spinning. Most recently, also heard word that Bey and Jay-Z had asked the talk show queen to be Blue’s godmother. According to Oprah’s BFF Gayle King, those reports are completely false.
“It’s absolutely not true that she’s the godmother,” King said on the “CBS This Morning” show. “She’s friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much.”
King also hinted that the rumors of Oprah buying the baby a trunk of books may not be exactly be true either.
“She’s working on sending them a baby gift. She hasn’t even had time to send a baby gift because she’s been away,” King revealed.

King went on to say that if Oprah really is Blue’s godmother, neither she or Oprah are aware of the news.
“Let me just say, if [that report is] true, it is news to [Oprah],” King said. “It is news to her. You know, she was heading to South Africa when the baby was born.”
