Just when we thought the Knowles-Carter family couldn't get any more iconic...

Last weekend, Beyoncé made history for winning the most Grammy awards ever by a female artist, when she took home four awards at the scaled-back 2021 ceremony.

During her speech, during which she honoured the 'Black Kings and Queens' she strives to represent and empower through her music, the 28-time Grammy winner also paid tribute to her husband Jay-Z and her three children, including her eldest Blue Ivy Carter who also walked away with her own award that night at nine years old.

Blue's award came after she featured on her mother's single 'Brown Skin Girl', which took home the Best Music Video prize, making Blue the second youngest winner in Grammy's history.

Now, in true Beyoncé fashion, the Houston-born star has shared a behind the scenes video montage with fans from her special night and one of the best highlights comes at the end when Blue is seen drinking from her megaphone award.

The stunt likely refers to a 2014 Grammy's clip where Blue's father Jay-Z accepted the award for 'Best Rap/Sung Collaboration' for his track 'Holy Grail' featuring Justin Timberlake. During his speech, the proud father-of-one (back then) told the audience and viewers: 'I wanna tell Blue that look, Daddy got a gold sippy cup for you'.

Well, in a full circle moment, she's now got her own (along with the 28 belonging to her mother and 23 for her father).

Elsewhere in Beyoncé's video montage were adorable clips of Bey and Jay celebrating the success of the night at a small post-show gathering, at which the singer wore a custom Burberry silver nailhead gown, with the married couple of 13 years dancing together in the clip.

From the awards show itself, Beyoncé shared pictures of herself with fellow winners, her friend Megan Thee Stallion, Billie Eilish and Harry Styles.
