Beautiful baby Blue Ivy has been on her first public outing with doting parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Spotted in New York, Beyoncé kept baby Blue firmly under wraps in a black blanket, while protective father Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, looked on. The couple had been dining at Sant Ambroeus café and espresso bar in the West Village, with a team of body guards, when they were photographed leaving the establishment.
Wearing a black hat, black sunglasses and leggings, Beyoncé looked relaxed and dressed down for the outing with her young family.
Singer Beyoncé and rapper husband Jay-Z surprised fans earlier this month, revealing photos of baby Blue on the internet. Rather than selling the first pictures of baby Blue, the couple decided to set up an internet blog with a note inviting fans to share in the couple's joy, signed "The Carter family."
Blue Ivy Carter was born on 7th January 2012, at Lennox Hill Hospital in New York. Just two days after baby Blue was born, proud parent Jay-Z released track Glory, a song dedicated to his new daughter featuring sound bites of the young star crying at the end of the track.
She might not know it yet but Blue has broken the record for the youngest person ever to be credited on the U.S singles chart.
