While there’s no doubt that Beyoncé gives us all goals, she most certainly gives us mom goals, too. A lot of people can’t help but notice that she has a very special relationship with her daughter Blue Ivy. Sure, every mother has an abundance of love for their child, but with Beyoncé and Blue Ivy it’s just a little bit different.
There’s just something so electric about them, with Beyoncé herself making it clear that motherhood is truly the best thing that has ever happened to her. With that said, here are 10 times that Beyoncé and Blue Ivy have given us all mom and daughter goals!
10 Falling In Love With Motherhood
Beyoncé said that when she got pregnant, it truly felt like she was falling in love. She looked radiant throughout her pregnancy with Blue Ivy in 2011, and later on with her adorable twins, Rumi and Sir.
Beyoncé said in the 2013 HBO documentary Life is But a Dream, "you are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so of course you want to scream it out and tell everyone.”
9 Learning About Herself
Beyoncé says one of the best things about motherhood is getting the opportunity to learn more about herself. She also said that she’s always wanted to be close with her child, the same way she’s been close with her own mother, Tina Knowles.
“My daughter introduced me to myself,” the chart-topping singer told Oprah Winfrey, via The Today Show. “You know, my mother and I are so close, and I always prayed that I would have that type of relationship with my daughter. And she’s still a baby, but the connection I had with her when I was giving birth was something that I’ve never felt before.”
8 I Am Mama, Hear Me Roar
Beyoncé understands just how meaningful and powerful her body is, especially after she gave birth to her three children. That’s why she takes every opportunity to celebrate her curves, rather than criticize (unlike so many other celebrities out there).
As a mom, she’s more in tune to her body now than ever before, and she thanks Blue Ivy for it. "Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body,” she said in Vogue. “I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame.”
7 Blue Ivy’s Smile
Beyoncé says that one of the best things in life for her is waking up knowing that she gets to see her daughter smile every day. Don’t you just love that? She doesn’t take any of these moments for granted.
“When I wake up in the morning, the best thing in the world is seeing her face,” Beyoncé said in the NFL Network’s “Super Bowl Live” show in 2013. “She’s starting to talk. It’s just such a beautiful time in my life to have a child and every day see something new and see her learn something new.”
6 Health And Happiness
Beyoncé says that there are only two things that are very important to her when it comes to her kids Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir: their health and their happiness. She counts her lucky stars everyday that she has the means to give her children the best life possible.
Why wouldn’t she? Beyoncé is one of the hardest-working women in the entertainment industry and she deserves everything that comes her way. Plus, she’s got the best gift life can give: family. “I just want my child to be happy and healthy and have the opportunity to realize her dreams,” she told Elle magazine.
5 Girl Power
As many of her fans already know, when it comes to Beyoncé it’s all about the girl power! Not only is she a huge role model for her fans from all over the world, but she’s also her daughter’s biggest role model too. That’s why, when she picks her projects, she’s very careful about what she chooses.
Beyoncé told Oprah Magazine in an interview, "It was important to the director that Nala and that the females in this film were heroes and he put Nala right alongside Simba in the big fight, and I thought that was really interesting and very real, because the women are... we're the fighters."
4 Sasha Fierce
Beyoncé’s alter-ego Sasha Fierce might not longer be around, but that doesn’t mean that her spirit doesn’t live on inside the chart-topper. As a matter of fact, a lot of fans couldn’t help but notice that Sasha not only lives in Beyoncé, but her fierce little daughter Blue Ivy.
There isn’t a day that goes by without the media talking about Blue and that fierce little attitude she has. If she’s not giving the cameras a look that says “I’ve arrived” than she’s telling her famous parents to settle down at award shows. We’ve all seen it, right?
When Beyoncé makes her way onto a red carpet, you could hear a needle drop on the floor because she’s the one person on the planet that can manage to take everyone’s breath away. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but we are sure you know what we are talking about.
Together, Beyoncé and her baby girl Blue Ivy give us some serious style goals. They are not only ahead of the rest of us, but literally ten years ahead of the fashion world when it comes to their fierce style. The rest just can’t keep up, and it shows.
2 Blue Is Her Mini-Me
While a lot of people have hinted that Blue Ivy looks like her father Jay-Z, let’s face it: the girl is her mother’s mini-me. When it comes to her fierceness, her style, her presence and just the way that she carries herself, she’s all Beyoncé.
While there might be a lot of pressure on her, seeing how her mother is one of the biggest stars on the planet, we have a feeling Blue has nothing to worry about. She might be rewriting the rules and breaking new ground by the time she steps up into the spotlight. We can see it already.
1 Front Row Seats
Could you imagine not even being in the second grade, yet and already getting the best seats in town, whether they are at a fashion show, basketball game or even your mother’s concert? Ladies and gentlemen, that is the life of Blue Ivy.
Wherever she and Beyoncé go, they are treated like triple VIP members. Actually, make that royalty, with Beyoncé being the queen and her daughter being a queen-in-training. Simply put, there’s no time to be a princess around here! Plus, Beyoncé and Blue’s fans love seeing them interact whenever they are at their public outings, too. We can’t get enough of them!
