Blue Ivy is already a musical star.

The couple’s first child, Blue Ivy Carter, was born on January 7, 2012.

Aside from the recognition she receives from her parent’s success, 10-year-old Blue Ivy has already achieved much of her own well-deserved fame and admiration.

Last November, she helped induct her father into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, alongside her mother and other famous celebs. She recited some censored lines of her father’s rap lyrics in a pre-recorded video, giggling throughout. (Really gives Jay-Z the soft edge he was missing, if you ask me.)

Blue Ivy worked with Beyoncé on the song “Brown Skin Girl,” a track that was created for the album The Lion King: The Gift, which received the award for Best Video at the 2021 Grammy Awards. At nine years old, she made history as the second youngest person to win a grammys (the youngest was one of The Peasall Sisters who was only eight when they took home a Grammy in 2002).

Blue Ivy’s work on “Brown Skin Girl” also earned her an MTV VMA award, beating out other artists like Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish, and Lady Gaga. She is the youngest person to achieve this award. Ever.

She also earned a BET award in early 2020 for the outstanding duo/group prize due to her contributions to “Brown Skin Girl.”

Aside from crushing it on the music scene, Blue Ivy also narrated a children’s audio book, People reported. It’s called hair love and was written by Matthew A. Cherry.

Where does Blue Ivy’s name come from?

Apparently, the color blue is very special to Jay-Z.

“My favorite hue is Jay-Z blue,” is one of the lyrics on his track “Go Crazy,” per HuffPost. And there’s some speculation out there that “Ivy” comes from the Roman numerals for the number four, or IV. Beyoncé is a big fan of the number four: her birthday is on September 4, she got married on April 4, and even has an album titled “4.” So that would make sense.

How old are Beyoncé’s twins now?

The Carter twins, Rumi and Sir, just turned five! They were born on June 13, 2017, after Beyoncé’s “extremely difficult pregnancy” where she developed preeclampsia, a pregnancy complication that can be fatal for mothers and babies, according to her 2019 Netflix documentary Homecoming.

“My body went through more than I knew it could,” she said, noting the physical toll the pregnancy had on her even after the twins birth.

Who were Rumi and Sir named after?

Though everyone in the family has unique names, Rumi and Sir definitely stand out. Jay-Z explained the story behind his twins’ names on his streaming service, Tidal.

“Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter,” he explained in an interview, referencing his and Beyoncé’s literary favorites. The 13th Century Persian poet Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi is still famous today for his beautiful poems about love and his lyrical verses, ABC News Reports.

Sir, on the other hand, is a little more self explanatory. “Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir,” the father of three said. He noted that he and his wife didn’t select the name till after he was born and witnessed his natural character. Sounds like his dad

What a beautiful family! I can’t wait to see what the young Carters get up to next.
