Time goes by so quickly — Blue Ivy Carter is another year older! That’s right, it was a whole nine years ago when Beyoncé, 39, and Jay-Z, 51, welcomed their first child together and our lives have genuinely never been the same. Since then, the couple welcomed their twins — Sir and Rumi, 3 — but Blue holds a special place as the musical duo’s eldest child! The talented youngster celebrates her birthday every year just after New Year’s Day. Every year is so special, as the world watches Blue Ivy grow up and become the young talent she’s destined to be. Let’s look back at some of her cutest moments with her famous mom and dad!

2019 was really such a monumental year for Blue Ivy. Not only did Blue get to attend the premiere of The Lion King Alexander McQueen ensembles, she was also featured on Beyoncé’s album The Lion King: The Gift with a gorgeous rendition of her song “Brown Skin Girl.” Blue really showed fans that she is essentially growing up to be her mom’s mini-me in both fashion and artistry! But there are even more moments that fans are looking back on as the nine-year-old grows one year older.

Who could forget when she made her Coachella debut in the best way possible by waving adorably at the crowd from the front row in 2018? As if that wasn’t cute enough, the newly-minted nine-year-old also tossed up her dad’s signature Roc hand sign at one of her mom’s shows. What a little legend! But when she had to see her parents ‘in bed’ together during a visual on their OTR II Tour, she was horrified to say the least. Blue covered her eyes and hid — ever the bashful little one! So, clearly, the girl’s got some spunk and personality. We bet she’s such a fun big sister!

While Beyoncé doesn’t show her twins off in the public eye very often, she did give a glimpse of them having a sweet moment with their older sister in 2018. They were on the set of their mom’s Vogue shoot — NBD, right? — when Blue could be seen in a behind-the-scenes video leaning over to kiss either Sir or Rumi on the cheek. In another quick snippet of footage, one of the babies was laughing with her. What a tender moment!

But today is all about Blue! We bet she will have an amazing birthday bash for her ninth. While the young star celebrates with her nearest and dearest, we’ll commemorate the day in our own way! Check out the gallery above to see more images of Blue Ivy’s sweetest moments!
