New papa Jay-Z was all smiles last night when he made an appearance at the grand reopening of his 40/40 Club in NYC.

Beyoncé didn't make it to the event, but when E! News congratulated him on their new bundle of joy, Blue Ivy, he smiled and said, "Thank you."
Jay-Z was joined by pals who celebrated the event, like Ashanti, Spike Lee, Questlove, Warren Buffett and members of the New York Yankees. While the rapper spent most of the time in private areas of the crowded club, like a doting new papa, he did show a friend some pictures on his phone.
Questlove, the drummer and frontman of The Roots, told The New York Post he didn't have any parenting advice to offer to his friend. "I'm here to show love," he said. "He can give me advice. I'm not even a parent yet — so he left me in the club alone."
