Beyoncé's father shares adorable photo to wish 'beautiful granddaughter' Blue Ivy on her eighth birthday
Singer Beyoncé and rapper Jay-Z's daughter Blue Ivy turned eight on Tuesday. She received an adorable birthday shoutout from her grandfather Mathew Knowles.
Mathew took to Instagram to share a GIF, which showed Blue Ivy posing with a backpack as she appeared to be on the way to school. Along with the GIF was a message that read, "Happy Birthday to my beautiful and oldest granddaughter Blue Ivy. Love, Papa G."
Little Blue looking very stylish in her long-sleeved orange shirt and a skirt that featured cherries all over it. Her hair had been styled straight down to fall over her shoulders. In the GIF, stars are seen flashing around the child before transitioning into a message that reads, "Happy 8th Birthday Blue Ivy."
Blue's birthday comes around a week after she brought in the new year along with her mother Beyoncé and rapper Megan Thee Stallion. On the first day of the year, Stallion shared two black and white pictures on Instagram that seemed to be from a New Year's Eve party. One of the pictures shows just how much Blue is taking after her stunning mother.
The pictures had been captioned, "Happy 2020 🤘🏽 @beyonce." We had previously reported that a Vanity Fair film critic and a web editor at Harper's Bazaar had sparked outrage after mocking the child on social media. Fans and followers have called for the critic to be fired after writer K Austin Collins made fun of the youngster for looking like her father Jay-Z.
Collins had said in a now-deleted tweet, "I have a feeling the jay z face genes are about to really hit Blue Ivy and I feel so sorry for her." A web editor at Harper's Bazaar, Violet Lucca, chimed in saying, "They haven't already?" to which Collins responded saying, "You're right. But she's lucky — if it happens now she'll definitely grow out of it, Get the ugly duckling phase done early."
Their offensive and vile comments went viral with critics insisting that they should be fired.
