Blue Ivy's 7th birthday: The best moments of Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter
The hottest luxury and A List news
Happy birthday to Blue Ivy Carter, who turns seven today. Beyonce and Jay-Z’s eldest daughter has had a pretty eventful life so far. Famous even before she was born, her mother announced Blue’s upcoming arrival at the MTV Music Awards by rubbing her baby bump mid-performance.
Blue Ivy was then welcomed into the world on January 7, 2012, at Manhattan’s Lennox Hill Hospital. Beyoncé described the birth in an interview with Voguethe following year. “I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain” she said, “we were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.”
Over the years, Blue Ivy has become a mini celebrity in her own right, frequently stealing the spotlight from her famous parents.
Here’s a few of her best moments.
Blue Ivy and Beyoncé’s coordinated outfits
When Beyoncé and Blue Ivy are photographed together there’s often some outfit coordination involved, like in 2016 when the two posed in front of the Eiffel Tower in matching mint floral dresses.
The two wore matching dresses again for a sweet Mother’s Day photo shoot in 2017.
Blue Ivy at The Grammys
Blue Ivy has joined her parents several times at the awards ceremony. During the 2018 Grammys, she showed Beyoncé and Jay-Z who’s boss when she appeared to shush their applause during Camila Cabello’s speech.
She also gave us one of the best mom memes when she was pictured chowing down on snacks while Beyoncé held onto her cartoon of juice.
And at the 2017 Grammys, Blue Ivy crashed James Corden’s live version of Carpool Karaoke in her pink ruffled Prince-inspired outfit. The performance featured Jennifer Lopez and John Legend. But, as one of Corden’s biggest fans, Blue Ivy outshone them all.
“Blue’s Freestyle” and music video cameos
As the daughter of two of the biggest music stars on the planet, there’s no telling what kind of natural talent Blue Ivy has inherited from her parents.
She’s already contributed vocals to Jay-Z’s4:44track “Legacy” and for the album’s bonus track “Blue’s Freestyle.” For Blue Ivy’s sixth birthday, Jay-Z released a music video for “Blue’s Freestyle” that features an animated version of Blue rapping and performing ballet at a talent show.
Blue Ivy delivered some serious summer goals when the Carters took a casual family trip to Italy, where Blue appeared completely nonplussed in a pair of cat-eyed sunglasses with a tropical drink. Just your typical bucket and spade family holiday then…
Blue Ivy doing The Roc at Jay-Z’s show
From attending concerts as a toddler to watching Beyoncé at Coachella, Blue Ivy might be her parents’ most loyal fan. This was also evident when she taught a friend how to throw up “The Roc” (Jay-Z’s signature diamond-shape symbol) during her father’s performance of “On To The Next One” at a London show this past June.
Blue Ivy on the red carpet – including that $11k gown
If there’s anyone who could outdo Beyoncé on the red carpet, it would be Blue Ivy herself. The young Carter turned heads at the 2016 VMAs with her glittering metallic dress designed by luxury children’s brand Mischka Aoki. It was reportedly priced at around $11,000.
Blue Ivy ticking off grandma for breaking the rules
Blue Ivy clearly doesn’t suffer fools gladly – she even apparently called out Jay-Z for an unfriendly tone he used with her in the car. She’s appears to be keeping her grandmother, Tina Knowles, in check too.
During a trip to Paris this past May, Knowles attempted to sneak an Instagram video of a ballet theatre. Just as she was filming, Blue Ivy can be heard off-camera telling her video is not allowed. Don’t even attempt to bend the rules on Blue’s watch.
