Hey Papi: Jay-Z Shares Cute Photo Of Blue Ivy “Playing” UNO During The Family’s Bahamas Vacation

UNO

While we were out in these streets bundled up in coats, gloves and other winter wear, the Carter/Knowles family and friends were in the Bahamas, ringing in Blue Ivy’s first birthday and getting the type of sand and sun fun that most broke folks can only afford once a year. *Cues Inner City’s “Good Life” to start playing* Photos surfaced of Jay and Bey out and about during the trip, and Kelly Rowland even wrote Happy Birthday Blue Ivy in the sand a few days back, but big papa Carter decided to post a picture of B.I.C. on his website, Life + Times, where he captioned the photo, “Last day of vacation, playing UNO.” At just a year old, of course Blue was doing more crumpling and throwing of the UNO cards rather than playing, but nonetheless it was clearly a cute moment. Speaking of clearly though, Jigga followed the route of his wife and opted to keep Blue’s face from being seen as much as possible. I’m not sure if they’re aware that paparazzi and nosy people have already exposed her face to the world, but hey, their baby, their rules. We were able to lighten up the photo a little bit below so you actually know what you’re seeing, and we can see that somebody is getting big! Happy belated birthday to the tyke, and on a sidenote, after looking at the background of this photo, is anybody else trying to go on vacation? LIKE NOW??? I’m just saying, their lavish lifestyle is totally beating this one minute it’s 28 degrees, the next it’s 48 degree weather ish I’m dealing with…

    MN yall gotta post a list of words to not say cause creepo would not be an optional word I’d pick, lol

  • Me, Myself & I

    I see why some people don’t show photos of their child/children because of ignorant & rude comments negative people say, thats right Jay & Bey keep your child’s identity under raps!

  • LoLz

    RENT ‘EM BABIES !!!!!!! (in my Cole from ‘Martin’ voice) L.M.M.F.A.O.!!!!!!!

  • LoLz

    Did no one pack a comb and brush on that trip?

  • Whitley Turner

    What’s the point of being in the spotlight if you’re not going to show your child? For all that,you mine as well never show her then. What’s the point? I swear people do anything for attention and anything to be seen. It’s not that serious for some attention. Why show her if your going to going show her head and hair???? SMH,pathetic people..

    • Amber

      Because it’s their child and they can show whatever photos they want to. End of

    • Kaori

      Because one being in the spotlight doesn’t mean we are entitled to see their children.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ayanna.patton.7 Ayanna Patton

      Just like you doin the most with this comment.. guess you needed attention to…o yea that’s y you post anonymous…lol

    • Is It 5:00 Yet?

      It’s because the PARENTS are the ones who chose to be in the spotlight…a child can’t make that decision for themselves yet.

  • tonya

    They don’t believe in combing her hair…smh

  • http://www.facebook.com/SanCastle03 Sandra Benson

    So the issue is: A- her hair isn’t done? B- her cheeks are way to chubby? C- she is way to tall to be a 1 year old? D- photo is to dark? E- she’s one of Jolie/Pitts babies? OR NONE OF THE ABOVE? This is a child, what’s the issue??? How does everyone feel about the young lady who waxed her 3 year old daughters eyebrow’s????

  • pickneychile

    What is the point if posting pictures to the public if we can’t even see her…? if it wasn’t for the outline of her lil fro I would never have known she was in the shot. Lol

  • ANirvana

    its a damned if you don’t damned if you do in society. MJ covered his children, everyone thought it was weird, then when he died, everyone understood. katie holmes and tom cruise were quiet for a while, and there were comments from “there is no child, she never was pregnant” to ” they’re hiding the child because its ugly”. So the Carters have found a middle medium i guess. that’s how they’ve handled their private life all along. Beyonce gave an inch and the world wanted a mile when she was pregnant, and we all saw how that turned out, so i don’t blame them if this is their way of keeping their child out of the full blown media at least for a little while, while trying to give a little something to their fans.

    • SheBe

      *waves church fan* @ “so i don’t blame them if this is their way of keeping their child out of the full blown media at least for a little while, while trying to give a little something to their fans.” Thank ya!

  • SheBe

    Why is this child’s hair being debated? She’s a baby. She’s chilling with her parents in what looks like PJ’s and doing what babies do: tearing up whatever they can get their tiny hands on. As for her size, all babies grow differently. My 9 month old is taller and more solid than a lot of the one year olds I know and is definitely way bigger than most babies in her age group. Lets stop with the shallow comments about the baby.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ayanna.patton.7 Ayanna Patton

      TY.. ppl r so stupid…they can’t even control their own kids

      • SheBe

        +10!!!! And the most judgmental ones don’t have any.

  • CB3

    Someone somewhere is lying…she’s suppose to be a year old?

    • Na Na

      Exactly! The last time I seen a one year old this big AND developed enough to be holding uno cards AND standing up in a chair by herself on her own two legs……i was in Oz with Todo and Dorothy.
      Now IJS Blue could DEFINITELY be not your average 1 year old but literally when she’s 6 days into being 1 year old this seems like pretty advanced actions.

      • SheBe

        This is perfectly normal.

      • CB3

        LMBO!!!@ “in oz with toto and dorothy”. Thank you!! Something in the water aint clean. *side eye*

      • ANirvana

        idk what kind of 1 year olds you’ve encountered, but both of my children were walking at 9 monthss and feeding themselves by 1. children reach their development stages earlier and later than others

      • http://www.facebook.com/shana.d.foley Shana D. Foley

        What child you know CAN’T hold cards/paper and STAND while holding herself up on a stable item BY HERSELF?….. Your kids (if you have any) never pulled themselves up by a coffee table and played with paper, phones, rattles?… O_o

      • Amber

        You’ve got to be an idiot. Smh

      • LoLz

        Every child in my family walked no later than 10 months… it could be possible if they let be on the floor a lot and not holding her all the time.

  • MeMe

    I saw images of the little girl and she’s not attractive,maybe in a couple of years……

    • Anonymous

      In case anyone wants to know, they’re shielding her from comments such as this. At age 1, she’s not attractive. Really??

    • Is It 5:00 Yet?

      She’s not attractive? Why would anyone be looking at a 1 year old like that in the first place?

  • Shonda Johnson

    They could’ve at least combed this little girl’s hair or something. If this was a regular person people would say the same thing. What’s the point of showing the little girl if you’re not going to sow her whole face?? What’s the point? I see,they “MIGHT” be doing anything for attention.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1192922391 Antoinette Daniels

      Why do people have to always comment about black hair. Please Stop! there is nothing wrong with her hair.

      • Shonda Johnson

        Either way,if this was a regular person kid you people would say something about her hair not being done. I can’t stand people and their PHONINESS.

      • LoLz

        so i guess u let your child run around looking like buckwheat.

        • TRUTH IS

          LOLZ

    • Kaori

      She is a ‘regular person’.

      • Shonda Johnson

        Bye girl!!

        • Kaori

          Now, now, little lady. There are better ways to show that you disagree with someone.

    • Amber

      She’s still a baby! Who does that ish to a 1 yr old? Maybe when she’s 6. Smh

    • http://twitter.com/MizzJazzyPeach J Mc

      Yea because when your one year old is just playing around and you want to take a picture of the moment you doll her up first. -_-

  • Kitsy

    I literally laughed out loud when I saw the first pic. SMH at all these blurry, blacked-out photos. Its now a running joke with them.

  • Trisha_B

    If you dont want to show your child, you dont have to! but why post dark pics of her? Thats just weird to me lol. Dont post pics at all….blue is a tall girl, got her daddy height. She got her dads cheeks too, but I think she looks like her mom

    • Kaori

      “Dont post pics at all….blue is a tall girl, got her daddy height. She got her dads cheeks too, but I think she looks like her mom”

      You know a lot about this baby’s appearance considering pictures of her in full are never released.

      • Trisha_B

        Well, lets look at the pic above…she looks rather tall & can see her cheeks. I then said THINK, meaning just a guess. Plus there was that 1 pic that came out of Blue that someone took in the store.

        • Kaori

          Okay.

  • JaneDoe

    They should have named her Blue Shadow bc it seems thats all we’ll ever see..

    • TRUTH IS

      Bwahahahahaha…how Jay Zero and BeYawnce have the media swooning over dark as midnight pics of this kid….ctfu…..I believe ‘Yawnce is ashamed of her kid…..I could be wrong….these opaque pics are ridic!!!

      • JaneDoe

        I don’t think they realize that they can potentially be causing this child more harm than good. God forbid she doesn’t live up to society’s standard of what beautiful is when she gets of a certain age ppl will rip her apart. They really need to chill with all this peekaboo nonsense. I understand wanting to protect her but if thats what they intend on doing do it wholeheartedly and not play the situation as a game bc it might come back to bite them in the azz

        • SheBE

          The both of your comments are stupid and I am assuming you both are childless.

          • TRUTH IS

            Ok opinion police!!! SMDH….go cut ur wrist for your fav celeb….turd

            • SheBe

              GO CUT MY WRIST???? Really??? LOL You just confirmed what I said, you may really be a little off. So i will not continue to reply to an idiot. Have fun boo.

            • http://www.facebook.com/ayanna.patton.7 Ayanna Patton

              How stupid do you sound.. that’s what’s wrong with this society.. first of all she’s beautiful because she is a child of God… A woman of color… and last but not least a DAMN BABY

              • TRUTH IS

                Tell BeYawnce, your god, that!!

                • http://www.facebook.com/ayanna.patton.7 Ayanna Patton

                  Plz boo I serve one God…don’t ever disrespect my God… you got life twisted.. It has nothing to do with Beyonce.. it has to do with the fact that you are petty enough to talk about a baby… and girl you lucky im saved cause i used to not be this cordial after someone pops stupid.. smooches.. and God Bless

                  • SheBe

                    BLOOP! *in my Ne Ne Leakes voice. 2 snaps and a twist with a hair flip*

          • JaneDoe

            My beautiful son is 8 yrs old

            • SheBe

              You act like you are the same age as him. Telling someone to cut their wrist. Im done boo, continue to make a fool of yourself.

              • JaneDoe

                Looks up and around… Where did I state for someone to do harm to themself? I am so sorry you are so offended my my comments. I will stop just for you

            • http://www.facebook.com/ayanna.patton.7 Ayanna Patton

              Who says he’s beautiful.. YOU…haha.. hope he doesn’t get ripped apart by the world…

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maroonsista-AtTwitter/100002896637049 Maroonsista AtTwitter

            I was thinking the same thing. People shouldn’t be forced to show photos of their kids. Hell, even news reports don’t show children or give names. There’s a reason for that. Kids should be able to be kids and we already know what happened with one of the Mawry sisters when people online started calling her baby ugly. Adults can be cruel, and paparazzi can be psychos. They have every right to protect their child from being splattered across every news outlet and online site.

            • TRUTH IS

              Oh the Irony….after being so “private” you announce your pregnancy on MTV Award show? If they want to have privacy…disappear on an island….they have enough $$$. If they don’t want to hear it…keep yo pics to yourself…simple. None of us would have been commenting if they didnt post the pic and MN wouldnt either if they didn’t care to hear ppls comment…..jeez trolls kill me!!

              • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maroonsista-AtTwitter/100002896637049 Maroonsista AtTwitter

                People would’ve been commenting on the baby regardless. There have been reports about Blue Ivy’s nursery and Billboard chart numbers about using her cry on a song. You think the couple sent out a press release about that? Paparazzi are being killed trying to take photos. You clearly don’t understand how much entertainment bloggers make stuff up while paparazzi is hiding in trees. I’d rather them release the photos they want us to see than paparazzi releasing whatever they feel/stalk out.

            • Kaori

              There is a difference between a celebrity showing pictures of her/his baby and a child’s identity being protected on news reports.

              • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maroonsista-AtTwitter/100002896637049 Maroonsista AtTwitter

                The motto is the same. Children should be protected. There is a reason major news outlets even have to get the okay to use even Beyonce’s Tumblr photos as Internet Fair Use. Responsible entertainment reporters don’t just right click and save whatever is on the Internet. They go through the proper channels whether it’s good news or bad news.

          • SheBe

            ^^^^????^^^^ DISCLAIMER: this is not the same “registered” user! Just want to make that clear. Now, you all may continue…

        • Kaori

          I don’t get your comment really. I sincerely doubt they are hiding her because of her looks, but rather for privacy. This baby JUST turned one and conversations about whether or not she will fit into society’s standards of beauty is already happening. That is just ridiculous to me.

    • Glenn Coco

      LMAO hilarious!

  • YupIsaidIt

    Now why didn’t they do that baby’s hair? I mean a little afro ponytail or two goes a long way for a little girl and is it just me or does she look a little big to only be a year old or is the table flat on the floor? IJS

    • http://www.facebook.com/ayanna.patton.7 Ayanna Patton

      that’s y they don’t like to show pics.. negative negative negative… it could have been close to bedtime and they took her hair down…who r u to judge what someone else does with their child…

    • Kaori

      She is a BABY. What the heck do babies need their hair done for if they are just playing around?

    • Beauty85

      And just what exactly is she supposed to do to with her hair, certain black people kill me me with that. Why can’t we wear our hair out black people put ponytails in bbies hair to much, that’s why a lot of black babies don’t have any hair now! JUST BECAUSE YOUR UNCOMFORTABLE WITH YOUR HAIR DOESN’T MEAN EVERYBODY ELSE HAS TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THEIRS!

      • Kaori

        I can’t even begin to tell you how it makes me feel to see babies with cornrows.

      • http://www.facebook.com/ayanna.patton.7 Ayanna Patton

        ****Stands up and claps**** Thank YOu

  • pretty1908

    I understand wanting to shield your child from the scruntiny of the public, but i do think the carters get a kick out of this pseudo mystery.Look they dated for years and rarely claimed each other. They like a good story will do things to faciliate and enable the hype of whatever they choose. I see other celebrities who don’t flaunt their child but don’t treat them like MJ’s kids either. The child will have to grow up at some point and hiding them from the world won’t last long.

    • yeppers

      They are normal human beings tho….WE should only know them for music and business they have chosen to share with the world….not what they are doing in their bedroom or with they child…I cant for the life of me understand why peoples PERSONAL BUSINESS is so enthralling to yall. What they do with they baby is they business. Its not shielding its call living life. You are not ENTITLED to ever see their child just because they are celebrities.

      • JaneDoe

        News flash, normal ppl don’t do things like this.. And secondly they are the ones putting their child out there. If it was that serious we the outsiders looking in wouldn’t know what Blue look like. We care bc they are partially building our interest up around their child by doing stuff like this… So save all that they are human.. So is Angelina and Brad but we respect them more by how they choose to do things when it comes to their children and Blue is not a bigger start than the Jolie-Pitts. The Carters are on some ol’ other ish

        • JaneDoe

          *Star*

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1192922391 Antoinette Daniels

            I agree…..I find it annoying……and I wish they would stop with the shadowy photo’s.

          • She

            First people say her name means satan, then you say B was never pregnant, and you wonder why they don’t want to show her face. If they do someone is going to say it look like she had a black eye for goodness sake. Get over yourselves and mind your own business. The nerve of people getting upset because they can’t see a clear pic of someone else child. Just like normal people share pics of their children via facebook, instagram, and twitter. Jay Z wants to show his off too. Just not too much because of people like you making assumptions that go way too deep.

        • IamWhoIam

          Your life is too consumed in everyone else’s particularly celebrities I see. You should def take up a position as a paparazzi or news reporter specifically on family and baby pics.

          • JaneDoe

            Considering that everyone else stopped by and made a comment and think you can pass along that comment to them too.. But yea thanks. I’ll consider that

            • JaneDoe

              *I*

      • pretty1908

        No their life isn’t that important to me, you went a bit far with your reply. i just think its ridiculous to post blurry and intentionally darkened photos of your child. A non famous person wouldn’t that. Their whole mystery mantra to me just seems contrived.

        • pretty1908

          do*

      • http://www.facebook.com/ayanna.patton.7 Ayanna Patton

        Man.. Im soo glad someone else has common sense and a sense of personal space… its ok for them not to share everything.. the same ppl complaining are the same ones talking bout “stay out my business”… smh.. simple people

  • lateshia

    Me too. The photos always come out dark. I’m guessing she looks like Jay-Z I see nothing but cheeks and hair.

  • pretty1908

    i wish i could see her…. she has a lot of hair tho lol
