Blue Ivy Carter’s Grandmother Details What She’s Like on Her 11th Birthday

Blue Ivy Carter quietly celebrated her 11th (!!) birthday on Saturday, and her grandmother Tina Lawson offered the public rare details about what Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s oldest daughter is like now. The Grammy-winning preteen really is a master of all trades—at least according to Lawson.

Lawson shared a photo of the two together on Instagram, the same shot she shared for Blue’s 10th birthday last year. She gushed about Blue in her caption, writing:

“The day that you were born was one of the best days of my life. I was really praying and pushing your mom to have you on January 4, which is my birthday. I really wanted you to share my birthday, but like your auntie Solo, you decided to come when you were good and damn ready, and that was on January 7, three days after my birthday. Knowing you and your personality now, I realize that you needed your own day because you were such a queen, and you are so very special! You can sing dance, play basketball, play, volleyball, paint draw, sculpt, sew, write poetry, write songs, create, act, play the piano! I could go on and on. Because there’s really nothing that you can’t do. You are funny and beautiful and graceful, kind, and so smart. I could not ask for a better granddaughter Ms. Blue Ivy Carter! I could not be more blessed, grateful, and completely in love with another human. You truly bring me joy!!❤️❤️❤️ Grandma T.”
