Beyoncé gives daughter Blue Ivy a special birthday surprise
Beyoncé and Jay Z threw a fairy-themed birthday party for 4-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
Jay Z may have "99 Problems," but throwing his daughter a great birthday party isn't one of them.
Beyoncé and Jay Z's daughter turned four on Jan. 7, and her famous parents threw their little angel a fairy-themed birthday party on Saturday, Jan. 9.
E! News reports that the Carters had the party at a private residence and had fewer than 50 guests. Beyoncé's former bandmate and BFF, Kelly Rowland, attended as well as Coldplay's Chris Martin. No word on whether their children attended the party.
The party sounds like every little 4-year-old girl's dream: a big birthday cake, ice cream and lots of food. Plus there were balloons and an entertainer who used them to make balloon animals. Areas for kids to play with Barbies, Play-Doh and LEGOs were around the party.
The source reports that while the kids played, Beyoncé and Jay Z laughed and were affectionate with each other.
Last year, Beyoncé & Jay Z celebrated Blue Ivy's third birthday with a bash that featured a big silver "3" balloon and an ice sculpture that read, "Happy Birthday Blue."
For their little girl's second birthday, the family flew to Miami and rented out the local zoo.
I think it's adorable that Beyoncé and Jay Z throw such down-to-earth birthday parties for Blue Ivy. It sounds like it was created with Blue Ivy in mind and activities that she'd enjoy with her friends. Fun isn't created by a lot of money, but with love and thoughtfulness.
It may be selfish of me as a Bey-and-Jay fan, but I'd love for them to bring another little Carter into the world. Maybe 2016 will bring all of us fans our wish!
