Rap mogul Jay-Z got caught showing off some fatherly love to his daughter Blue Ivy Carter this week as they departed a helicopter in New York City.
Photos of Jigga and his eight month-old, who rocked a pair of headphones, hit the Internet early Friday (August 31).
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)
Earlier this month, former Roc-A-Fella rapper Freeway talked to SOHH about Young Hov 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)
Fellow former Roc-A-Fella rapper Memphis Bleek also recently talked about Blue.
“It’s weird, it’s funny,” Memph said of watching Jay interact with daughter Blue Ivy when he appeared on Wednesday’s “RapFix Live.” “Seeing my man do his first burp, in my eyes, it’s a new thing and I love it. Fatherhood, it’s nothing like it. … Their brain is a sponge, and anything you teach ‘em, they gonna learn and carry for the rest of their life.” “She runs the [Roc Nation] office already,” he said, laughing. “She could tear down the whole building; who gonna say what? Blue got drivers, security — she poppin’.” (MTV)
Last spring, Jay shared his thoughts on playing big papa and imagined Blue Ivy hitting her teenage years.
“I imagine I’ll take things I learned from my mom and things I’ve learned from raising my nephews and apply that,” the rapper said in an interview for Oprah’s Master Class: Special Edition. “Then at the end of the day, I just know I’ll probably have the worst-spoiled little kid ever,” he admitted. Jay-Z went on to say that even if he does spoil Blue Ivy, she will probably resent him once she is a teenager. “Everyone imagines they’ll be a great dad until their [kids are] teenagers,” he said. “[Then they say], ‘Get away from me, dad. You’re embarrassing me’.” (Digital Spy)
