Singer plays with daughter

Beyoncé Knowles has released a snap of herself sharing a sweet moment with 18-month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter.

The 31-year-old loves to post photos of her family life with husband Jay-Z on Tumblr.

In the new shot, she’s leaning over Blue‘s pram as her little one reaches out for her.

Rather than opt for a laid-back look while on babysitting duty, Bey is glamorous with dramatic eyeliner and a huge beehive.

The singer, who dressed up as a queen for her Mrs Carter tour posters, also uploaded a picture of her tot wearing a crown just like her one.

Speaking on Good Morning America, Bey has revealed how she is finding life as a new mum.

‘I am very protective,’ says Beyoncé.
 
‘I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life.

‘In the back of my mind, she’s my priority.’
