Beyonce & Jay Z's family photos are beyond adorable - we just can't get enough of an intimate inside peek at hip hop's greatest power couple.
As Beyoncé Knowles shares pictures from her trip to Italy with husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy, we treat you a look back over the Carter-Knowles family album.
Warning: This might well be one of the cutest things you have ever seen.
Beyoncé and Jay Z were once known as one of music’s most private couples – at one time refusing to even confirm they had got married – but with the birth of gorgeous Blue Ivy, the proud parents have been more than happy to step into the limelight and share more of their family life with their fans.
From performing at sell-out concerts together to fooling around at home, it’s packed with some seriously sweet snaps. The Carter-Knowles clan are now even happy to keep fans up to date with their lives when they’ve jetted off somewhere in the world.
Whether they’re soaking up the sun in an exotic location during a break from touring or sight-seeing in Europe, it’s clear the family love to spend time together.
Our favourite pictures include Beyoncé tucking into a giant slice of pizza before she admirers the beautiful blooms with her little girl in the scenic Italian countryside.
We also love the shot of Jay Z lifting Blue Ivy high above his head as they play beside the ocean on another glamorous vacation.
One thing that will quickly become very obvious is that proud parents Beyoncé and Jay Z really dote on their daughter. The superstar couple always have bright smiles on their faces whenever Blue Ivy is near.
And just like her award-winning mum and dad, she’s already pro when it comes to posing for the camera. She’s even got a A-list pout to rival Beyoncé’s.
So, let’s remember at some of the best Carter-Knowles family snaps, with these adorable moments…
With songs like Single Ladies and Run The World (Girls), Beyonce is all about the female empowerment. Her beauty, talent and humility make her a woman to inspire to be like. She once said: ‘I think a beautiful woman is someone who is confident but not competitive with other women – someone who is warm to everyone. Because my mother told me ever since I can remember that beauty is from within, that looks will fade, I have always been aware that you have to have something deeper to be really beautiful.’ We couldn’t agree more!
Just how adorable? Beyoncé and one-year-old Blue Ivy spend some time dancing in the sand in between takes during a photoshoot in the Bahamas.
