New mum Beyonce Knowles dresses down for day out with Blue Ivy
Beyoncé Knowles made her first public appearance with baby daughter Blue Ivy this weekend.
The singer – who wore leather leggings, a beanie hat and sunglasses for the trip – carried her little girl in a baby carrier harness to meet dad Jay-Z in downtown Manhattan.
Beyoncé kept Blue – snuggled up facing her mum – wrapped in a leopard print blanket, later swapping it for a plain black one.
The 30-year-old and Jay-Z, 42, announced the arrival of their first child on 7 January via Beyoncé‘s website.
‘Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven,’ they wrote.
‘She was delivered naturally at a healthy 7lbs and it was the best experience of both our lives.
‘We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.’
