Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter is already as popular as her A-list parents, so we can only imagine how many stars have swung by to say hello to Blue Ivy in person.
Thankfully, "Saturday Night Live" has an even better imagination than we do.
On the latest episode, host Maya Rudolph did her best Beyonce impression while Jay Pharoah did a spot-on parody of Jay-Z as they welcomed famous friends into their home to meet their new bundle of joy.
"Prince" entered from the kitchen bearing the gift of a smirk, while "LL Cool J" wore his "formal" Kangol for the special occasion.
Angelina Jolie, who felt her "baby sense" tingling, dropped by with a scraggly Brad Pitt, and even country star Taylor Swift - Kristen Wiig doing Swift's ever-present "surprise face" - came over.
But two of the highlights in an already solid sketch was Nicki Minaj and her nightmarish lullaby, and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon (played by frequent "SNL" guest Justin Timberlake).
Vernon was a little late, because he'd been "wandering barefoot through the woods of Wisconsin," fashioning a "guitar out of a canoe" so he could perform a song.
It's a good thing he came by at Blue Ivy's bedtime - Vernon even put himself to sleep with his performance.
The real-life Vernon got a kick out of the sketch, tweeting just after midnight Sunday, "holy s***, i was just watching SNL and JT did a Bon Iver hilarious thing! Also, Maya Rudolph saying 'bon iver' is enough. I can die now!!!"
That was one of our favorite skits of the night in one of "SNL's" better episodes - what'd you think?
