Happy birthday, Blue Ivy!
The daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z turned 8 on Tuesday, January 7, but it turns out the fans are the one who got the gift thanks to Queen Bey’s father, Matthew Knowles. Blue’s grandpa wished her a happy bday on Instagram and included a grown-up picture of the birthday girl!
“Happy Birthday to my beautiful and oldest granddaughter Blue Ivy.
Papa G,” Knowles wrote in the caption of his post.
Knowles revealed a sweet pic of Blue with her hair flat ironed and a cute smirk on her face that brought back memories of her mother. She wore an orange shirt, a skirt with cherries featured on it, and a backpack strapped to her back. She looked ready to take on the world!
Fans were stunned when they saw the grown-up Blue and they sent love and well wishes in the comments section of Grandpa’s post.
“Happy Birthday Princess? Beyhive has your back forever i Promise ???,” one dedicated fan wrote while another said, “Omg she’s gorgeous ❤️❤️ Happy Birthday ?.”
“Happy 2020 ?? @beyonce,” Meg captioned the awesome pics.
The candid shots on Bey with Blue caused the internet to go wild.
“BLUE IVY IS A PRESENCE. She’s the actually energy force that brought this image together and we owe her. The real Supreme. ?” a follower noted.
The newly 8-year-old Blue probably doesn’t even know but there is a legal battle over the rights to her name and the case is heating up.
A wedding planner named Veronica Morales is still fighting Beyonce in court and is attempting to shut down the singer’s claim that her daughter Blue Ivy is a “cultural icon”.
Beyonce and Morales have been locked in a dispute over the trademark for years. Bey has been trying to get the trademark to her daughter’s name, but Morales claims she had already been using it. They are scheduled to head to trial in the case that just won’t go away.
