Beyoncé celebrates her birthday at the beach with Jay Z and Blue Ivy

Beyoncé rang in her 33rd birthday with some fun-filled family time at the beach.

Keeping things casual, Jay Z and his superstar wife were pictured with their toddler Blue Ivy, Queen Bey’s mother Tina and other relatives relaxing on the shores of St Tropez.

A canopy with huge white couches had been set up for the family to lounge on. In a touching tribute, the diva’s loved ones had written Happy B-Day in the sand.

To celebrate her day Beyonce posted a cute throwback snap of herself as a little girl on her official website. Her rapper husband also posted new behind-the-scenes pictures from their On the Run tour, showing the birthday girl dancing, rollerskating and holding a glass of champagne.

Meanwhile, First Lady Michelle Obama sent the Southern gal birthday greetings via Twitter, wishing “her wonderful friend” “an amazing day”.

In a few days time they get back to work with their final tour dates in Paris. The tour has been hugely successful but music’s golden couple has had to contend with speculative reports about their marriage.

Beyonce has not addressed the rumours other than to post happy family pictures.

Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter, Blue Ivy, just won herself some hardware at the Grammys -- which makes her the second youngest to ever walk away with the prize.

Bey and Blue just won for Best Music Video . an award that was given out before the broadcast, which starts at 5 PM PT. The Recording Academy gave props to the team, tagging Beyonce and hashtagging BI (since she doesn't have Twitter yet), plus Wizkid.

The Academy wrote, "Congrats Best Music Video winner - 'BROWN SKIN GIRL' @Beyonce #BlueIvy @wizkidayo Sparkles #GRAMMYs." The track and accompanying video were part of Beyonce's 'Lion King' album, 'The Gift' -- and yes, Blue DOES have a verse in there.

She shows up throughout the video alongside her mom, but toward the end . Blue dishes out the outro, nearly identical to the intro and chorus . "Brown skin girl // Your skin just like pearls // The best thing in the world // I'd never trade you for anybody else, singin'."

It's a small contribution, but it counts . and Blue's even a featured name on the song. So, yes . she also gets credit, and just as important, she also gets a statuette -- joining her folks, who've got dozens of Grammys among themselves. Now, it's a family affair!

At age 9, Blue becomes one of the youngest artists to have the honor bestowed on her. In 2002, the music group The Peasall Sisters won a Grammy for Best Album for the soundtrack to "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" to which they contributed on "In the Highways."

The youngest of those three sisters, Leah, was 7 when she recorded it and 8 when she and her other two siblings won. Still, pretty impressive all around for Blue . congrats.

Happy First Birthday, Blue Ivy! Beyoncé and Jay-Z's Baby Daughter Turns 1

Happy first birthday, baby Blue Ivy Carter!

Believe it or not, it's been an entire year since Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed their first daughter together (AKA, music's most famous child!).

While the 31-year-old songstress and her 43-year-old hubby have kept little Blue Ivy pretty much out of the spotlight since giving birth, we've managed to catch glimpses of her here and there throughout the year. And fingers crossed that Blue Ivy's second year of life brings us lots more adorable photos of the uber famous celeb spawn.

Let's celebrate Beyoncé and Jay-Z-s little one by taking a look back at the couple's romantic road to baby.

Beyoncé's family have sweetest reaction as Blue Ivy receives exciting news

Beyoncé and her family had a lot to celebrate over the weekend as eight-year-old Blue Ivy picked up her first BET Award on Sunday for the single, Brown Skin Girl. The little girl shared the accolade with her famous mum, WizKid and Saint Jhn, with the group receiving the BET HER Award. What's more, it made Blue the youngest ever winner at the awards, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. Blue's proud grandmother, Tina Knowles, publically congratulated her granddaughter on the special achievement, writing on Instagram: "MsTina says Congratulations to my talented granddaughter Miss Blue Ivy Carter!! You rock girl."

What's more, Beyoncé was also presented the Humanitarian Award on the night and dedicated it to everyone who has been marching in support of Black Lives Matter. She said: "Your voices are being heard and you're proving to our ancestors that their struggles were not in vain.

Blue Ivy's proud grandmother Tina Knowles reacted to her BET Award news

"Now we have one more thing we need to do to walk in our true power and that is to vote. I'm encouraging you to continue to take action. Continue to change and dismantle a racist and unequal system. We have to vote like our life depends on it, because it does."

Blue is following in Beyoncé and Jay-Z's footsteps

This isn't the first time that Blue has been recognised for Brown Skin Girl. In 2019, the little girl scored her very first hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. The single was placed at 77 on the Hot 100, with Blue being credited as one of the track's songwriters. She also appears at the beginning and end of the song, and in the music video. In the hit, Blue opens and closes the track singing "Brown skin girl/Your skin just like pearls/The best thing in the world/I'll never trade you for anybody else."

In February, meanwhile, Blue celebrated surpassing one million monthly listeners on Spotify. She has also appeared in her mum's 2004 song Blue, and has been involved with some of her dad's songs too, including Legacy and Blue's Freestyle/We Family. Blue even became the youngest person to appear on a Billboard chart after featuring in the rapper's single Glory, just two days after she was born.

The singer is a doting mum to three children

The star was even captured on camera dancing while holding her birthday cake, much to the delight of fans. In 2018 for her 37th birthday, meanwhile, Beyoncé celebrated with an idyllic getaway in Italy.

Although she will have been unable to travel as far this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is thought that she was spending her birthday in the Hamptons, where her family have been staying for the past few weeks.

Rumors of a romance began to stir when the video for Jay-Z’s 󈫳 Bonnie and Clyde” hit the small screen. Here, Beyoncé poses with Jay wearing his signature Yankee fitted baseball cap for a “ TRL ” appearance at MTV studios in November 2002.

As time went on, Beyoncé and Jay-Z were much more open about their relationship, even giving some steamy performances like this one at the 2003 MTV Awards.

Through rain or sunshine, these two always seem to give each other their backing and their blessing, which is imperative in a healthy relationship. Jay-Z escorts his wife at the New York premiere of “Cadillac Records” in December 2008.

All work and no play is definitely not the mantra of Mr. and Mrs. Carter.

Though clearly smitten with her hubby, Beyoncé advises that every woman maintain her own sense of self. “Make sure you have your own life before you’re someone else’s wife,” she said during her appearance on Oprah.

We’re addicted to watching these two perform like they did at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in 2010.

Jay-Z brought along his grandmother Hattie White for a Yankees game. The rapper has always spoken about how close he is to his grandmother.

After years of false rumors and speculation, Beyoncé stunned fans and friends at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards when she confirmed her pregnancy on the red carpet then showed off her baby bump on stage during her “Love on Top” performance.

Anyone can see that Beyoncé adores and admires her husband of four years. Just look at how the mom-to-be lovingly stared at her man during the US Open in the fall of 2011 — they can’t ever seem to get enough of each other, and it only makes us love them more.

Blue Ivy's 2nd Birthday: Beyonce, Jay Z, A Tricked-Out Private Zoo Party, And Your Escalating Jealousy!

It's official y'all! Beyoncé and Jay Z's blessed child Blue Ivy's 2nd birthday on Jan. 7 was the toddler baller party of your dreams! Except you weren't invited. Because you're not 2! Or 5! Or even 6. You're old, and jealous of a toddler! So definitely take that to your therapist and chew on it.

Who run the world? Girls in face paint!

The golden Carters celebrated their daughter’s 2nd birthday by renting out a private party room at Miami's Jungle Island! BUT THERE'S MORE. There was apparently someone on hand to paint stunning, butterfly-esque designs on Blue and mama Bey's faces, and Blue's most esteemed party guests!


Let's not forget papa Jay, who gave his precious baby Blue a helping hand when she wanted to cruise around the private party room on her tricked out pink toy car! Because what says "Mazels, you're two!" like owning your own wheels?!


Oh, and while your 2nd birthday party cake probably came from a supermarket covered with icing the same color as a "Hazardous Materials" sign, Blue Ivy's was masterfully coated in fondant with A SPARKLE TIARA AS THE TOPPER. Oh, and just for fun it was placed on a mirrored table garnished with pink rhinestones. CANNOT HANDLE.

Wedding cake or Blue Ivy's 2nd birthday cake? WE CANNOT TELL.

Depending on how you look at it, now might be the best (or the worst) time to bring up the fact that we celebrated our b-days with Starburst candies as the cake table accoutrements. Oh, and our parents aren't world-famous music icons. FML!
