Denying the report that Winfrey has been chosen to be Blue Ivy Carter's godmother is the media mogul's friend, Gayle King.

Contrary to previous reports, is not a godmother to 's daughter Blue Ivy Carter. On Friday, January 27, Winfrey's close friend Gayle King set the record straight on "CBS This Morning", saying, "It's absolutely not true that she's the godmother."

"She's friends with them, of course, and likes them both very much. 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 explained. "Let me just say, if (that report is) true, it is news to her. It is news to her. You know, she was heading to South Africa when the baby was born."

The rumor itself was brought to attention by Media Take Out earlier this week. The publication claimed that and his wife have chosen Winfrey and Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith to be their baby girl's godmother and godfather respectively.
