Every Time Blue Ivy Carter Stole The Show At Beyoncé’s Renaissance Tour

The Beyhive meets the Ivy League.

Blue Ive Carter and Beyoncé perform onstage during the "RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR" at Mercedes-Benz Sta...

Before she even appeared on the Renaissance World Tour stage, the crowd at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, began to roar; electricity pulsed through the stadium as fans awaited her arrival, craning their necks to get a better view. No, we’re not talking about Beyoncé , who took to the stage for nearly three hours, but her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

Since May, Blue Ivy — the eldest of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s three children — has delighted audiences by popping up midway through select shows and dancing to her mom’s performances of “My Power” and “Black Parade.” Her brief cameos have taken the world by storm, igniting a viral TikTok dance trend and kickstarting a new dedicated fandom, the Ivy League . She even has some people, like Gabrielle Union’s daughter Kaavia , thinking that the Beyoncé show is a “Blue Ivy concert.”

To date, the young star appeared at more than 15 Renaissance stops and even has been added to the tour’s credits as a dancer. Naturally, she’s always dressed to the nines during her cameos, with her costumes often echoing her mom’s style for that show. At the AT&T Stadium, for instance, both mother and daughter wore shiny silver ensembles.

From those sparkly new outfits to her amazing dance moves, it’s been quite a ride. Ahead, all the times Blue Ivy Carter stole the show during the Renaissance tour.

Blue Ivy’s Tour Debut In Paris

On May 26, Blue Ivy made her Renaissance stage debut, just two weeks after the tour kicked off in Sweden. Her appearance at the concert in Paris, France, made international headlines, as most expected Beyoncé’s daughter to only be watching the show — not onstage dancing to high-energy choreography for two songs.

Blue Ivy Becomes A Tour Fixture In London

LONDON, ENGLAND – May 29: (EDITORIAL USE ONLY)  Blue Ivy Carter perform onstage during the Beyoncé “...

At first, many fans thought that Blue Ivy’s Paris cameo was a one-off moment — but she proved everyone wrong when she made her second appearance just a couple of days later during the first night of Beyoncé’s five-show run in London on May 29. By then, Blue Ivy was already starting to go viral on TikTok , and she even helped boost the popularity of the song “My Power” by 293% globally on Spotify.

The Blue Ivy Fans Show Support In Spain & Germany

As Beyoncé’s eldest continued to make cameos, the Beyhive swarmed to show their support for her. On June 8, an X (formerly Twitter) user shared a video of Blue Ivy reacting to a fan’s sign at the Barcelona stop. A week later in Cologne, Germany, fans waved blue-colored balloons during Blue Ivy’s portion of the show.

As the European leg of the tour went on, fans noticed that Blue Ivy appeared to be growing more confident with each appearance. One fan commented on a video of her at the June 24 concert in Frankfurt, Germany, saying: “And that was how Blue took the Queen Bee title 🙌🏾.”

(As pictured above, Blue Ivy sometimes makes a heart-shaped hand signal at the end of her performance, before leaving the stage.)

As the Renaissance tour started its North American leg, Blue Ivy made appearances in Philadelphia , Chicago , and Detroit — where Beyoncé joined the crowd chanting Blue’s name. The mom-and-daughter duo continued to share more tender interactions and major style moments, especially at the concert in East Rutherford, New Jersey, where they wore custom matching jerseys.

Blue Ivy’s “Hard Work” Dominates The Atlanta Stage


By the time Beyoncé’s Atlanta shows took place in August, Blue Ivy already had months under her belt as a tour dancer, and it showed. Even Destiny Child’s Kelly Rowland said she was “very proud” of the 11-year-old. “She works very freaking hard, period. But how could she not, you know? She sees her mother in action and she sees her father in action and how they apply everything, hard work to everything that they do,” Rowland told E! .

Blue Ivy Makes Her Canada Debut In Vancouver

While the North American leg of the tour started in Toronto, Blue Ivy didn’t perform onstage in Canada until the Sept. 11 show in Vancouver. Her first Canadian performance earned a standing ovation — which, as you can see in a fan’s TikTok video , caught her by surprise.

Blue Ivy’s Outfit Gets The Internet Talking In Seattle

Beyoncé and Blue Ivy wore custom matching outfits again in Seattle, this time courtesy of Telfar. The sparkly tracksuits blew the Beyhive and Ivy League away, and caused many to wonder if it will be as hard to snag a Telfar tracksuit as it is to buy one of the brand’s viral tote bags.

Blue Ivy’s Reaction To Fans In Dallas

In September, Queen Bey took her tour back to her home state of Texas, stopping in Dallas and Houston. While it wasn’t too surprising that Blue Ivy showed up for this pair of special shows, it was a shock to her to see how much love the crowds gave her. One fan video from her performance at the AT&T Stadium showed the dancer reacting in surprise to the crowd’s cheers after taking off her earpieces. Almost four months into the Renaissance tour — and with just a few stops left until it wraps — it’s a delight to see that Blue Ivy is still overwhelmed by the love fans have for her.

Beyoncé Managed to Book Blue Ivy for the Renaissance Tour

Portrait of Jennifer Zhan

Well, we’d hate to be the other kids in Blue Ivy Carter ’s class when it’s time for everyone to share something cool they did over the summer. The 11-year-old Grammy winner graciously made a surprise appearance at the Paris stop of her mother’s Renaissance world tour . “My bloodline … give it up for Blue!” Beyoncé said before bringing her daughter out for the Lion King track “My Power.” It’s not their first time onstage together. The pair sang a duet of “Brown Skin Girl ” in Dubai earlier this year … although we, uh, wouldn’t know anything about what happened at that no-phones-allowed performance. For this public performance, Blue limited her cameo to casually executing tour choreography alongside Bey’s dancers. She didn’t miss a beat while performing in front of 80,000 people, including proud dad Jay-Z, as well as other celebs like Selena Gomez, Natalie Portman, Pharrell Williams, Megan Thee Stallion, Kris and Kylie Jenner, Lenny Kravitz, and more. With all that star power in the sold-out Stade De France, it’s no wonder the ever-pragmatic Blue decided to wear shades.

Blue Ivy, 11, Looks So Grown Up As She Watches Opening Night Of Mom Beyonce’s Tour: Watch

Blue Ivy and her dad Jay-Z were spotted backstage cheering on Beyonce as she kicked off her world tour in Stockholm.

blue ivy tour

Blue Ivy Carter made sure not to miss the opening night of her mom’s first solo concert tour in seven years! The 11-year-old fashionista looked so grown up as she was spotted backstage at Beyonce’s Renaissance Tour at the Friends Arena in Sweden on Wednesday, May 10. Alongside her dad Jay-Z , Blue Ivy bopped her head to her iconic parent’s epic setlist  spanning 36 songs.

🪩 | Blue Ivy and JAY-Z at the Friends Arena pic.twitter.com/LGVBle8XX0 — Beyoncé Press. 🪩 | Fan Account (@beyoncepress) May 10, 2023

Rocking a long black tee and matching pants, Blue Ivy looked so cute catching all the glitz and glamour of a Beyonce show. An adorable clip of Blue Ivy and Jay-Z hanging out was posted to Twitter with the hilarious caption,  “Manager Ivy was there to make sure everything was running smooth.” And it certainly did run smoothly, as The Guardian called the Renaissance show a “monster blockbuster concert experience” that was “dripping with sci-fi disco decadence, sex, body positivity and feminine Black pride.”

It was a welcome return for the pop princess, as Beyoncé has not toured on her own since her 49-stop Formation outing in 2016 , following the release of “Lemonade.” In 2018, she performed at Coachella and then toured with her husband, Jay-Z, for On the Run II Tour.

As fans know, Blue Ivy actually took the stage alongside her mom in the last show Beyonce performed before Wednesday’s kick off. The pop superstar invited Blue Ivy to join her in singing “Brown Skin Girl” at a private performance for the opening of the luxury hotel Atlantis The Royal in Dubai in January. The mother-daughter duo stood in the center of the stage surrounded by backup singers. Looking like a mini-me of her mom, Blue Ivy showed off some dance moves as well, while Beyonce hit the high notes.

Beyonce performed “Crazy In Love” and “Naughty Girl” from her 2003 debut solo album, Dangerously In Love , her iconic ballad “Halo” and the smooth groove “Drunk In Love” from her 2013 self-titled album, and the more recent anthem, “Freedom,” from her groundbreaking visual album  Lemonade . The singer was paid a whopping $24 million to mark her triumphant return to the stage, per TMZ .

We should be rooting for blue ivy dancing on tour with beyoncé — not hating on her.

She’s not our daughter — she’s our internet niece — but we should still be rooting for her, cheering her on so she knows that, in a world that so often snuffs out the joy of Black children, we’re on her side.

Blue Ivy is in formation!

The 11-year-old joined her mother, Beyoncé, for a surprise cameo during the latter’s star-studded concert in Paris on Friday.

The pre-teen was brought out on stage during the 32-time Grammy winner’s performance of “MY POWER,” busting out the difficult choreography alongside the rest of the backup dancers.

“Give it up for Blue,” Bey told the crowd as they erupted into cheers.

Blue Ivy matched her mom in a sparkly silver top, metallic pants and a pair of sunglasses.

As the “Halo” singer, 41, walked around on stage, she could be seen glancing back at her daughter, who was effortlessly hitting each eight count.

BEYONCÉ BROUGHT OUT BLUE IVY OMFG ICONIC😭😭😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/dgX4Jt10yg — 𝗱𝗮𝗻𝗻𝘆🫧💚 (@beyoncegarden) May 26, 2023

Meanwhile, Jay-Z watched on from the audience as his two leading ladies stole the show.

The father-daughter duo has been spotted at the “Renaissance” tour together numerous times — despite Blue Ivy staying out of the public eye for most of her childhood.

During the tour’s opening night, photos of the tween took the internet by storm due to her striking resemblance to Beyoncé .

Clad in an oversized T-shirt, baggy pants and gold hoop earrings, Blue Ivy looked like the spitting image of her mother.

“Her little side profile just screams mini Bey,” one person wrote, while another chimed in, “She looks just like Beyoncé.” 

“i swear she looks more and more like bey as she grows up,” a third fan added.

Blue Ivy previously joined her mother on stage during a show in Dubai at the beginning of the year — marking the “Single Ladies” singer’s first performance in five years.

Although the pre-teen was equipped with a microphone, she simply stood next to her mother and danced at the time.

Bey and Jay-Z, who wed in 2008, welcomed their eldest daughter in Jan. 2012. Five years later, the songstress  gave birth to twins  Sir and Rumi, now 5.

The “Renaissance” tour — Beyoncé’s first solo one since “Formation” in 2016 — has been the talk of the town in recent weeks.

Despite the show-stopping visuals and her outrageous vocals, many fans noticed her uncharacteristically restrained dance moves — which is possibly due to a rumored foot surgery.

Yet if anyone is planning on seeing one of her next 40 shows, it looks like Bey found a great replacement.

Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Team Up for “Lion King” Origin Movie

B eyoncé and her daughter Blue Ivy are joining forces again following the success of their “Renaissance” Tour. Disney confirmed on April 29 that the duo would star in an upcoming live-action “Lion King” prequel titled “Mufasa.” In this origin story of  Simba’s  father, Queen Bey will repeat her role as  Nala , while Blue Ivy will debut as  Kiara ,  Nala’s  daughter. 

Donald Glover will also return as  Simba  in this set before the events of the 2019 live-action “Lion King.” Choosing Blue Ivy as a cast in the movie seems natural to everyone. This is particularly true, given her top-tier performances with her mother on “Brown Skin Girl” from the “Lion King: The Gift album.”

Blue Ivy Is a Fast-Rising Star

Although Blue Ivy is just 12 years old, she has made a memorable appearance with Beyoncé while performing “My Power” on the “Renaissance” Tour. Everyone loves the full-circle moment in their collaboration. Now, with the musical legacy of “Lion King” and Lin-Manuel Miranda contributing new music to the movie, Blue Ivy might also show her vocal talents alongside Beyoncé. 

Director Barry Jenkins, known for “Moonlight,” noted that he loves Blue Ivy’s work in the short film “Hair Love.” He also mentioned that he initially hesitated to propose casting the mother-daughter duo in “Mufasa.”

As mentioned, Jenkins admitted his initial hesitation about casting the duo. He questioned if it was too close to home. However, his doubts quickly disappeared when Beyoncé and Blue Ivy enthusiastically responded when he asked them.

Interestingly, the film was shot before the duo collaborated on the “Renaissance Tour,” making it one of their earliest professional ventures together. Jenkins reflected on Blue Ivy’s growth during the tour. He noted that her portrayal in “Mufasa” shows a youthful stage of her life, serving as an important time capsule shared with her mom. Notably, “Mufasa” also features Aaron Pierre as  Mufasa  and Kelvin Harrison Jr. as a young  Scar.  Who else is excited and can’t wait to see the familial dynamics on screen?

A Musical Treat Awaits Queen Bey’s Fans on December 20

Due to the seamless collaboration Beyoncé and Blue Ivy gave fans during the “Renaissance Tour,” it’s safe to say fans can anticipate a musical feast. Of course, this would be after “Mufasa” hits theaters on December 20. Now that I have given you a sneak peek into “Mufasa,” let’s discuss Beyoncé’s fashion style for a while, shall we?

As you may know, Beyoncé’s recent drift into cowboy fashion and country music has been nothing short of spectacular. Her latest Instagram posts show sophistication in Westernwear, styled by Shiona Turini. Beyoncé’s style evolution is an aesthetic on its own. I mean an aesthetic that’s a far cry from the traditional rhinestones and tassels. And what does this tell you? Beyoncé can redefine any fashion norms.

Beyoncé’s Western Fashion Evolution

During her Tokyo promotional tour, Beyoncé continued to explore her Western-inspired outfits. Combining pieces from Salvatore Ferragamo’s Spring-Summer 2022 collection, she spiced things up with a slim-fit shirt and tapered cuffed trousers. The outfit was tastefully paired with a custom-made patent leather Miami HUG clutch in espresso and a classic cowboy hat.

She also made it more distinctive by adding details like a bolo tie adorned with a large turquoise stone and statement silver earrings from 8 Other Reasons. From bedazzled suits at Luar’s New York Fashion Week to fringed black leather ensembles at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Beyoncé effortlessly shows the versatility of country-inspired fashion.

Her style has proven that there’s more to country-inspired fashion than the creek-side fishing getups and monster trucks. There’s no ready-made template for country-inspired fashion. It’s all about doing your thing and slaying effortlessly. 

So you know, country-inspired fashion or style is not clichés. Plus, it allows you to embrace individuality, much like Beyoncé’s groundbreaking approach to music.

However, they have shared some photos with fans and have stepped out together as a family unit at public events such as basketball games and the Super Bowl.

Don't miss

Fans have also had glimpses into their family life during Beyoncé's films, Homecoming and her most recent release, Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé , which detailed her 2023 multi-million dollar world tour .

Here is all there is to know about the family of five...

Blue Ivy, 12

Beyoncé and Jay-Z's first child was born on January 7, 2012, four months after her mom broke the internet with her pregnancy announcement. The 'Love on Top' singer revealed that she was pregnant while performing her 2011 hit at the MTV Music Video Awards – and Twitter went wild.

Blue Ivy has been following in her parents' musical footsteps ever since her birth. As well as her more recent appearances in music videos and films such as Black is King, Blue's voice has featured on her song 'Brown Skin Girl' which won her a Grammy Award and, at the time, broke the record for the youngest recipient of the prestigious award.

When she was born, Blue Ivy's cries were recorded and placed on Jay Z's song 'Glory' which meant that Blue broke the record for the youngest ever credited person to make the Billboard Hot 100.

At the age of 12, Blue has now had the opportunity to accompany her parents to several high-profile events. One of Blue Ivy's first outings with her parents occurred in 2014 when she went along to the MTV Video Music Awards to support her mom's performance. She's also been pictured at multiple Grammy Awards alongside both of her famous parents.

In May 2023, a few weeks into Beyoncé's Renaissance World Tour, Blue Ivy made her debut on the stage at the Paris concert to perform the dance break to the song 'My Power'. It was later revealed in Beyoncé's Renaissance film that the 12-year-old was only supposed to perform once, but gained the confidence and ended up performing most nights for the remainder of the tour.

Sweetly, she was cheered on while on stage by several members of her family, from her dad, sister Rumi - who was seen holding up a sign saying 'Go Blue' during the Paris show – as well as her grandmother, Tina Knowles, and aunt, Solange.

In February, fans saw   Blue out with her famous family on two public occasions, just weeks after her 12th birthday, which was celebrated in private. She appeared on stage at the Grammys when her dad, Jay Z was awarded the Dr. Dre Global Impact award, and then joined her family, minus her brother Sir, at the Super Bowl.

Jay-Z and his daughter Blue Ivy share a close bond

The 'Everything Is Love' collaborators' twins Rumi and Sir were born on June 13, 2017. According to the official birth certificates, Rumi was the first to be born, followed shortly after by her brother Sir. Like their older sister, news of the twins broke the internet.

Beyoncé announced that she and Jay Z were expecting twins via Instagram in February 2017 when the former Destiny's Child singer wrote alongside a photo of her cradling her pregnant belly: "We would like to share our love and happiness.

"We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes - The Carters." The post quickly became Instagram's most-liked post of all time, rising to over 6 million likes in less than 12 hours.

During an interview with the RapRadar podcast in September 2017, Jay Z revealed the meanings behind the pair's names for their twins. "Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter," the Brooklyn native explained, before continuing: "Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir."

Rumi stood on a beach with her back to the camera, facing the sea

In her documentary  Homecoming , Beyoncé revealed that her pregnancy had been tough. 

"My body went through more than I thought it could," she said, before elaborating: "I had an extremely difficult pregnancy, high blood pressure. I developed toxaemia and preeclampsia, and in the room, one of the baby's heartbeats paused a few times so I had to get an emergency c-section." Thankfully, all three recovered well.

As for Rumi, the six-year-old is hitting milestones already. She helped Beyoncé and big sister Blue Ivy promote an IVY PARK Adidas range in December 2021.

More recently, Rumi can now say she's appeared on a number-one album. Beyoncé's daughter made her musical debut on the song 'Protector' which appears on Beyoncé's most recent release, Cowboy Carter.

In the song, Rumi says in a spoken word interlude at the beginning: "Mom, can we hear the lullaby, please?"

American Rapper Jay-Z stands on the sidelines with daughter Blue Ivy Carter before Super Bowl LVIII between the against the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs at Allegiant Stadium on February 11, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Like her big sister Blue, Rumi has since become one of the youngest stars to appear on the Billboard charts thanks to Cowboy Carter flying to the top spot when Beyoncé's country album dropped in March.

Sir Carter, 6

Beyoncé and Jay Z's only son, Sir, is seen much less than his sisters in public. In February 2024, Jay took his girls Blue and Rumi along to the Super Bowl where all three of them were pictured on the field taking photos ahead of the huge game. Sir, however, was not seen, though the reason why is not known.

Although the six-year-old has been seen the least out of the Carter kids, from the glimpses we've seen of the little one, it's clear he has such a special bond with his siblings and parents.

Fans of the Carters were delighted when the family released a family photo of them at Halloween when they turned into The Proud Family as they all dressed up as characters from the show.

Beyoncé even donned two costumes for the snap as she dressed up as the mom, Trudy, and the grandmother, Suga Mama. Little Sir looked so cute in his costume. He and his twin sister Rumi dressed up as BeBe and CeCe. The eldest sibling Blue was dressed as the central character, Penny, while dad Jay was the patriarch, Oscar.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z are one of Hollywood's most notoriously private couples, but they're even more hush-hush regarding their three children .

The couple, who tied the knot in 2008 after dating since 2000 , welcomed their first child, daughter Blue Ivy , in January 2012. In 2017, they were joined by twins Rumi and Sir .

In a rare appearance on an episode of Kevin Hart 's Hart to Heart series on Peacock, JAY-Z spoke candidly about how much he tries to prioritize taking time away from music to be with his three kids .

"Time is all you have," he said. "That's the only thing we control. It's how you spend your time. Every second that you spend, you're spending away from the development of these people that you brought here, that you love more than anything in the world. So what are you going to spend that time on? That changed practically everything for me."

Similarly, Beyoncé has also spoken about how "challenging" it can be to strike a balance between motherhood and her career .

"I think the most stressful thing for me is balancing work and life," the musician shared with Elle in 2019. "Making sure I am present for my kids — dropping Blue off at school, taking Rumi and Sir to their activities, making time for date nights with my husband, and being home in time to have dinner with my family — all while running a company can be challenging."

As the kids get older, they've been making more public appearances with their parents. JAY-Z brought Blue Ivy and Rumi to the 2024 Super Bowl with him, where they were spotted posing for photos on the field.

From the arrival of their first child to the internet-breaking announcement of the twins, keep scrolling for a breakdown of Beyoncé and JAY-Z's three children.

Blue Ivy , 12

The first-time parents welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy in New York City on Jan. 7, 2012. They formally introduced her to the world with a series of photos the following month.

The former Destiny's Child member first revealed her pregnancy on August 28, 2011, at the MTV VMAs in Los Angeles while cradling a bump on the red carpet. During her "Love on Top" performance, she told the audience, "I want you to stand up on your feet. I want you to feel the love that's growing inside me."

Blue has already started following in the footsteps of her musical parents. When she was only two days old, her vocals were featured on her father's song "Glory," which earned her the title of a Guinness World Record holder for being the youngest person to have a song appear on a Billboard chart.

In 2020, she was featured in her mother's song "Brown Skin Girl." Blue brought home a BET Her Award, NAACP Image Award and a Grammy Award for best music video for her feature. She is the second youngest individually credited winner of a Grammy Award.

Aside from her musical accomplishments , Blue has helped induct her dad into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, provided narration for a book and even assists with taking care of her younger siblings.

Blue is also taking notes on self-care from her busy mom. The "Formation" singer told Harper's Bazaar that Blue is already adopting her go-to rituals, saying, "One of my most satisfying moments as a mom is when I found Blue one day soaking in the bath with her eyes closed, using blends I created and taking time for herself to decompress and be at peace I have so much to share … and there's more to come soon!"

In October 2022, Blue joined her parents at the 2022 Wearable Art Gala in L.A. During the event, Blue bid over $80,000 on a pair of Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings, which her grandmother and host of the event, Tina Knowles , was wearing that night. In a video, Blue was seen waving her paddle while wearing a blue dress. She was eventually outbid by the founder of Mielle Organics, Monique Rodriguez, and her husband Melvin, who bid $105,000 on the earrings.

After a four-year hiatus, Beyoncé returned to the stage for an epic performance in Dubai in January 2023. Blue made a special appearance during the hour-long set to sing a duet of "Brown Skin Girl." The mother-daughter duo were impeccably dressed for the performance — Blue in a red, sparkling ensemble and Beyoncé in a canary yellow corset-style gown.

Blue made another public appearance at the 2023 Super Bowl with her dad a few weeks later. The father-daughter duo were seen arriving in all-black outfits with graphic T-shirts and sunglasses. JAY-Z also served as the ultimate Instagram dad at the event, taking photos of Blue in the Eagles' end zone ahead of the game.

In May 2023, Blue Ivy stepped out for the opening night of her mom's Renaissance World Tour , which kicked off in Stockholm, Sweden. She was seen in an oversized black t-shirt, standing with her father. Later that month, Blue Ivy took the stage with her mom in Paris . She performed the dance choreography for two songs — "My Power" and "Black Parade."

"My beautiful first born 🙏🏾 I’m so proud and thankful to be your mama . You bring us so much joy, my sweet angel," Beyonce wrote on Instagram following the show.

Rumi and Sir, 7

Following an "extremely difficult" pregnancy , Beyoncé gave birth to daughter Rumi and son Sir in L.A. on June 13, 2017. Exactly one month after their birth, the couple made their first public appearance together since becoming parents to three. That same day, Beyoncé also revealed the names and the first photo of the twins.

"Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter," JAY-Z explained in August 2017. "Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir."

Beyoncé first announced she was expecting twins in a record-breaking Instagram post on Feb. 1, 2017. "We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over," she captioned a photo of herself cradling her growing baby bump .

In August 2021, the twins appeared in an ad for Beyoncé's IVY PARK x Adidas clothing line for kids. The singer shared that the inspiration for the children's line stemmed from wanting to match with her three kids.

"On our family vacations, we love to coordinate our outfits. My kids are usually on set with me for shoots, and we'd find ourselves putting them in extra-extra-smalls so we could match. So it is a natural progression for IVY PARK to introduce a selection of key silhouettes in children's sizing," she told Harper's Bazaar .

According to their grandma Tina, all three of Beyoncé and JAY-Z's children are already developing a strong sense of style, and even contributed to their mom's design line.

"Well, they are little fashionistas , and they have definite determination about what they like and what they don't like. When Beyoncé's doing the first samples, they get them, and some things they love, and some things you can tell are not their favorite," she told PEOPLE.

Tina also shared that on a trip to Disneyland, then-5-year-old Rumi defended her outfit choice when her older sister offered her opinion on it.

"We recently went to Disneyland, and she put on her Mickey Mouse shorts. Then she wanted to put on a sparkly printed top, which had the same colors. It actually looked really cute," she explained. "But her sister came in and Blue was like, 'My mom would be mad because she's doing too much.' And Rumi said, 'This is my style.' She's 5. I was impressed."

When Beyoncé released her country album, Cowboy Carter , in March 2024, Rumi made her music debut. At the beginning of the song "Protector," Rumi can be heard saying, " Mom, can I hear the lullaby please ?' As of April 2024, she holds the title of youngest woman to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 .
