The "Bow Down" singer stepped out with 15-month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter for lunch on Sunday at Brooklyn's Buttermilk Channel – and the rarely seen toddler was sporting some adorable pigtails.
Beyoncé was all smiles as she carried her precious cargo, who appeared to be conked out, to an awaiting chauffeured car. Blue looked very Brooklyn chic in jeans, a green hooded coat, and Timberland boots.
The public has only had a few glimpses of Blue Ivy. Although Beyoncé and Jay-Z did post photos on Blue's very own Tumblr page after her January 2012 birth, and a few more scattered throughout the first year of her life, they’ve gone out of their way to shield her face in public.
But the proud mother did reveal a bit more of her daughter in her HBO Documentary, "Life Is But a Dream," for a whopping 10 seconds during an interview portion. Before the special even aired last month, a still from the precious moment was leaked onto Twitter and immediately went viral.
"When I wake up in the morning, the best thing in the world is seeing her face," Beyoncé gushed during the NFL Network's "Super Bowl Live" special last month. "She's starting to talk. It's just such a beautiful time in my life to have a child and every day see something new and see her learn something new." Motherhood, she continued, is "so much more fulfilling than anything else in the world … I love it."
