Grammy-winning singer Beyoncé Knowles-Carter recently delved into her love for daughter Blue Ivy and just how much her new bundle of joy means to her.
The 31 year-old superstar also revealed how hands-on her husband Jay-Z gets when it comes to their daughter.
“It just gives you purpose and all of the things my self-esteem was associated with, it’s all completely different. I’ve realized why I was born and more than anything, all of the things I want to pass on to my child and the best way of doing that is not by preaching or telling her, but showing her by example, which is one of the reasons I’m here. I sing nursery rhymes and I’m mommy. Today was the first time she saw me perform in rehearsal. She was very confused. [What nursery songs do I sing?] I make up a lot of crazy, corny songs. I’m not singing it, unless you do ‘Single Ladies.’ [laughs] [Changing diapers, my husband,] he’s very good. I love changing diapers. I love it. I love every moment of it. It’s so beautiful. I really do. I love changing diapers. I love it all.” (Anderson Live)
Recently, Jay addressed the perception of Blue Ivy only experiencing wealth and not coming up through the same environmental struggles he endured as a child.
At the last minute, I remembered to ask after his family, “Oh, my family’s amazing.” And the baby? “She’s four months.” Marcy raised me, and whether right or wrong/Streets gave me all I write in the song. But what will TriBeCa give Blue? “I actually thought about that more before she was born. Once she got here I’ve been in shock until maybe last week?” Her childhood won’t be like his, and this fact he takes in his stride. “We would fight each other. My brother would beat me up,” he says, but it was all in preparation for the outside. “I was going to have to fight, I was going to have to go through some things, and they were preparing me.” He smiles: “She doesn’t have to be tough. She has to love herself, she has to know who she is, she has to be respectful, and be a moral person.” It’s a new day. (New York Times)
Last week, Hovi and Blue were spotted spending time together on a helicopter.
The ’99 Problems’ rapper was seen cradling Blue Ivy as they stepped off the helicopter upon their arrival. Jay-Z has been pictured holding his daughter Blue Ivy Carter for the first time in public, as the father and daughter arrived into New York City yesterday (30th August). The ‘Young Forever’ rapper landed in the Big Apple on Thursday cradling eight month-old Blue Ivy as they left the helicopter dropping them off in the city, as baby Blue wore ear protecting headphones for the trip. Blue Ivy was wearing an all white baby’s playsuit for the journey while Jay-Z was in a white t-shirt, green baseball cap and black jeans, with a grey sweater wrapped over his shoulders. (Capital FM)
Recently, former Roc-A-Fella rapper Freeway talked to SOHH about Jigga embracing fatherhood.
“Jay is a good friend of mine and this is like the most happiest I’ve seen him in a minute, man,” Free told SOHH when asked for his reaction to Jigga embracing fatherhood. “He’s upbeat, good-spirited, you know what I’m saying? He’s just happy to be a father. I’ve always said he’s one of the best to do it, as far as the whole career, the whole family situation. … He’s living the American Dream right now. Much love to him.” (SOHH)
