Blue Ivy is a star in her own right! Let's take a look back at why we all love Queen Bey and JAY Z's adorable princess, who is now eight years old.
Looking Up to a Legend
The 8-year-old enjoyed a day out at L.A.'s Staples Center with her famous father on March 8. The pair had courtside seats to the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Los Angeles Clippers matchup that ended with the Lakers beating their hometown rivals 112-103. The cutest part of all was when a shy Blue Ivy got the chance to meet LeBron James. See, even famous kids can get starstruck!
Hear Them Roar
Queen Bey and her daughter shut down the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of The Lion King in July 2019. The stunning singer, who voices the character of Nala in the Disney remake, wowed in a bespoke crystal chandelier embroidered tuxedo Alexander McQueen dress with a dégradé crystal embroidered skirt, while her 7-year-old mini-me matched Mom in a black dress with silver crystal embellishment.
Like Mother, Like Daughter
"Someone made this comparison of me at age 7 and Blue at age 7. My baby is growing up. ?," Beyonce shared on Instagram in January 2019.

As Beyoncé and JAY-Z made their way through Europe for their On the Run II World Tour in 2018, the music icons made the adventure a family affair, bringing along their 6-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, and 1-year-old twins Sir and Rumi. Bey shared dozens of snapshots documenting her family's amazing jaunt through the continent via her website, including sweet photos with her husband and their precious photo of matching with her eldest daughter.
Beyoncé attended the 2018 Wearable Art Gala in a custom-made gown inspired by a Nubian warrior queen, and little Blue got to have some fun as her mama got ready, topping off her own gilded outfit with a Cleopatra-style wig. The theme of the evening was "From Waco to Wakanda."
The "Lemonade" singer and her daughter sat courtside at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game at Los Angeles' Staples Center, where she and Blue Ivy were spotted posing for a few selfies.
The wait is finally over! After carefully concealing her daughter's face to the media for more than a year, Beyonce finally revealed Blue Ivy's adorable mug to the world in her HBO documentary, 2013's Life Is But a Dream. We think she looks like the spitting image of dad JAY-Z!
Take a Vow
In a post on her website titled "Todd's Wedding" -- which were most likely the nuptials of Bey's creative director, Todd Tourso, in August 2017 -- Beyoncé shared black-and-white pics from her adorable mother-daughter date with 5-year-old Blue Ivy.
Happy Birthday, Blue Ivy!
Blue's grandpa, Mathew Knowles, couldn't help but give his granddaughter a sweet 8th birthday shout-out.

"Happy Birthday to my beautiful and oldest granddaughter Blue Ivy. Love, Papa G," Knowles captioned the sweet picture/video that includes animated stars and another birthday message.
