Celebrity's Kid Profile: Beyonce's Record-Breaking Daughter Blue Ivy
The daughter of Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z was born on 7 January 2012. Her name is Blue Ivy. The two singers got acquainted in 2002 and married in 2008. They keep their relations private, so little is known about their family life.
What we know for sure is that the path that Beyonce and Jay-Z had made from becoming a couple to giving birth to their first child wasn't easy.
Beyonce underwent miscarriage between 2010 and 2011. It was very hard for her. So when she finally conceived in Paris, she was extremely happy!
In 2011, the singer performed at MTV Video Music Awards. Having finished the song, she dropped the microphone, unbuttoned her jacket, and demonstrated her baby bump! It was a real record-breaker, as the broadcast enjoyed 12,4 million viewership!

The baby announcement became the most tweeted single event of the time (8,868 times per second!).
Blue Ivy Carter was delivered at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. Some patients complained that the hired security didn't let them move freely at the institution.
Jay-Z was so amazed at this event that he wrote a song "Glory," dedicated to Blue Ivy:
The song features the cries of the baby. They were recorded when Blue Ivy was only 2 days old, which made her the youngest person to appear on Billboard Chart.
Here are some interesting facts about Beyonce's child:
The name Blue Ivy is significant to both parents.
First, Jay-Z has several albums, called "Blueprint." Beyonce first collaborated with Jay-Z on his song "03 Bonnie & Clyde," which he got to his seventh album. Guess what it was called? Right! "The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse."
The couple's favorite number is four. Beyonce and Jay-Z were born on 4 September and 4 December respectively, and got married on 4 April. They have tattoos on their ring fingers depicting roman number 4 - IV (compare it with the name IVy).
In 2017, Jay-Z released his album "4:44" on iTunes, and it had several additional tracks, including Ivy's rap "Blue’s Freestyle."
With such parents, any public appearance of this girl will be hyped!
However, as we can see from Beyonce's Instagram account, the couple tries to make their child's life as happy and exciting as possible.
Blue Ivy reportedly goes to a private school.
She took part in charity initiative with her mom.
Her parents moved from New York to Los Angeles to make that happen.
Her mother often picks similar outfits for Ivy and herself.
This summer, Ivy has become a sister to her twin siblings, Sir and Rumi.
Blue Ivy featured Beyonce's song "Blue."
She went on the first tour with her mom at the age of 19 months!
Beyonce and Jay-Z wanted to make a trademark of her name, but it turned out that it has already been taken by an event company. So Beyonce lost.
This is it for today. We'll keep an eye on Blue Ivy as she grows, and wait for more interesting things about her life!
