Beyonce recently showed off her 17-month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter while poolside in Miami. The 31-year-old mother is currently on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, and she began performing on the U.S. leg of it at the end of last month.

Blue Ivy is certainly growing quite fast, and is shown walking on her own as Beyonce looks on proudly. While the superstar usually maintains a very private life, she recently spoke to Flaunt magazine about her image. When asked how she has controlled public access to her offstage life, she said: “I have chosen to keep certain aspects of my life private. But I also love sharing what makes me happy, especially through photography.” The diva has started sharing more with fans through a blog that captures behind-the-scenes moments, including concert pictures and more intimate moments with her family. The star has also joined the popular picture-sharing site Instagram.

On her Tumblr site, Beyonce showed off adorable photos of herself and her daughter during their pool day. [[nid:1344767]][[nid:1344775]][[nid:1344771]][[nid:1344773]][[nid:1344769]]

Meanwhile, during a radio interview on New York station Hot 97 last Tuesday, Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z revealed that he definitely wants more children. “Absolutely, God willing,” he said, before jokingly adding that he would prefer “a little basketball team” worth of children.

“Then you could be their agent and their dad at the same time,” interviewer Angie Martinez joked back, making reference to the fact Jay-Z recently founded the sports agency Roc Nation Sports and has already signed star athletes such as the NBA’s Kevin Durant. “The world would be a better place,” the rapper replied with a laugh.
