Article updated 09/01/2023: Blue Ivy Carter recently celebrated her 11th birthday, the occasion prompting her grandmother Tina Knowles to post a heartfelt message about her on Instagram.
Beyoncé's mother posted a photo of herself and her grand-daughter together on the beach at sunset, with the caption: '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.'
Knowles continued: '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 [sic]'
But beyond her beautiful words, there was something else that really struck us about the post – namely, just how much Blue Ivy Carter looks like her mother Beyoncé. And, of course, her grandmother Tina Knowles too. Talk about good genes running in the family!

On Monday the 10-year-old sat court-side with her father Jay-Z at the NBA Finals in San Francisco and looked like just like her mother.
Wearing a slick of lip gloss and hoop earrings, the pre-teen wore a black T-shirt, leather jacket, black jeans and black trainers.
The outing occurred on the same day as Blue Ivy's siblings, Rumi and Sir Carter, celebrated their fifth birthday.
In 2020, the eight-year-old joined her dad Jay-Z to sit court-side at the basketball game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Centre in the city.
Proud dad Jay-Z sat with his arm around his daughter during the game before posing for a picture on the court and meeting and greeting players.
For the day out, Blue looked as typically chic as her parents wearing lace-up boots, black leggings and a top and an oversized denim jacket - which on the reverse had 'Blue Is My Name' emblazoned across in large white lettering.
Though Blue wasn't joined by her mother for the occasion, it was clear that she now very closely resembles the 24-time Grammy winner. Fans of the 'Formation' singer would also be able to notice how much Blue looks like her mother when Beyoncé was that age, thanks to the throwback photos and videos the singer often shares.
That year the 10-year-old attended the Super Bowl with her famous mother. During the game she sat in front of both of her parents at the Miami stadium to watch the NFL event and halftime performance from Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.
Beyoncé later headed to her 'Beautiful Liar' collaborator Shakira's birthday party afterwards, wearing a hot pink plunging mini dress for the night out.
