Blue Ivy, the daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z: see how she changed over time
Over the years we've seen stars' babies grow up, and the eldest daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z is no exception. Take a look at how the celebrity kid (and Grammy winner!) has changed into the spitting image of her mother.
Blue Ivy Carter was born on January 7, 2012, at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.
The origin of her name is unclear. In 2012, Beyoncé posted a text on her Tumblr blog in which she referred to the novel 'A Field Guide to Getting Lost' (2005) by author Rebecca Solnit. It vaguely suggested that the inspiration for the name 'Blue Ivy' came from there.
In her first two years, we hardly saw Blue Ivy. Her parents were very careful and protected her from the public and paparazzi.
During the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Blue Ivy took the stage with her father to congratulate her mother on her accomplishments.
Blue Ivy has two twin siblings, Rumi and Sir. They were born on June 13, 2017.
Thanks to her famous parents she is very familiar with fame and life in Hollywood. In this photo at the 2016 MTV Music Video Awards, she was only four years old.
In 2020, at the age of 8, she became the youngest person to win a BET Award for her collaboration with Beyoncé on 'Brown Skin Girl.' In 2021 she also became the youngest artist to win an MTV Video Music Award for the same clip, and - last but not least - she got a Grammy Award together with her mother for 'Brown Skin Girl.'
Here she is with her parents in a wonderful outfit that reminds us a little bit of Prince's style.
At the 2019 premiere of 'The Lion King', she looked very comfortable on the red carpet with her mother. Blue Ivy was definitely born for it.
As a child of two superstars, Blue Ivy has access to all the front rows. And there is always time for a bit of fun during the Super Bowl halftime.
Sometimes we get a glimpse of Blue Ivy being a 'normal' school student. She attended first grade at the Center for Early Education, a public school in West Hollywood.
She is definitely a mix of her 2 talented parents. Don't you think so?
When she was younger, she looked a lot like her father, Jay-Z.
It is very common to see Blue Ivy enjoying basketball games with Jay-Z.
In June 2022, she was spotted with her dad at the NBA finals. While she was focused on the game, the world was amazed by her resemblance to her mother!
Dressed like a Rock Star, in black pants, and T-shirt with a leather jacket, she showed great confidence and fashion sense.
The curly hair reminds us of her mother in her Destiny's Child years. And the hair is important to Blue Ivy! In a viral clip of the game, shared on sites like Buzzfeed and Page Six, Jay-Z is hugging his daughter and she's telling him: "Not my hair!"
"She looks just like Beyoncé," countless Twitter and Instagram posts declared.
Time definitely flies. Fans are feeling old when they see the changes in both father and daughter.
While there is no doubt that Blue Ivy could become the new Queen B, for now, she seems to be most interested in things of a 10-year-old: snacks, basketball, and making sure dad doesn't embarrass her in public.
