Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, turned 4 on Thursday, January 7. We know just how important Blue Ivy is to Beyoncé. In 2012, the pop star sat down with Oprah to discuss the impact that the then-13-month-old had on her life.
“My daughter introduced me to myself,” the chart-topping singer said. “You know, my mother and I are so close, and I always prayed that I would have that type of relationship with my daughter. And she’s still a baby, but the connection I had with her when I was giving birth was something that I’ve never felt before.”
