Since 2008, Jay Z has been married to singer/songwriter and long-time collaborator Beyoncé Knowles. Despite their actual wedding taking place in a private, secret ceremony, the couple have been in the media eye since before they were married. The two first became a media sensation in 2002, when Beyoncé appeared in Jay Z's song ''03 Bonnie & Clyde'. When Jay Z then appeared in Beyoncé's debut solo single, 'Crazy In Love', the press began predicting that the couple were in a relationship. In 2012, the couple had their first child together, named Blue Ivy Carter.
