It’s clear Blue Ivy Carter is already learning so much from her mom, Beyoncé. Exhibit A: This new selfie, in which the nine-year-old struck the exact same pose as her music-icon mama.
Posted Wednesday, March 31, the new picture is a rare candid Knowles-Carter family moment. Bey‘s Instagram tends to be more curated, but it looks like she couldn’t resist sharing some sweet snaps of her family enjoying a beach day.
In other pictures from the same post, we see Bey’s youngest daughter, Rumi, in a colorful dress, and her son, Sir (Rumi’s twin), chillin’ by the ocean. It looks like the family was enjoying lunch by the beach at Nobu Malibu; Beyoncé and Blue Ivy also showed off their manicures alongside the Q.R. code for the hot spot’s menu.
According to the Daily Mail, both mother and daughter wore blue denim jackets for their lunch date, while husband/dad Jay-Z ate with pals in Santa Monica.
In addition to breaking the record for most awards won by a woman in Recording Academy history, Beyoncé also got to be a proud mom at the 2021 Grammys. That same night, Blue Ivy won an award for her participation in the music video “Brown Skin Girl,” making her the second-youngest Grammy winner ever.
Bey gave a special shout-out to her kids during one of her acceptance speeches. “I know my daughter is watching,” she said. “Two daughters and my son, y’all are all watching. Congratulations, Blue. She won a Grammy tonight. I’m so proud of you, and I’m so honored to be your mommy, all of your mommies. Y’all are my babies. And I’m so proud of y’all. I love you so much, my rock. Enjoy your night. Thank you.”
So sweet! Who thinks Bey and Blue should make a joint album next?
