The family relax by the sea

Little Blue Ivy Carter is clearly the apple of dad Jay-Z‘s eye.

Beyoncé Knowles has shared a very cute picture of her hubby, 43, spending quality time with their 19-month-old daughter beside the sea on her Tumblr page.

Jay – real name Shawn Carter – is seen standing in a pool and looking adoringly at Blue while lifting her up above his head.

The family were clearly loving spending time in the idyllic setting as Bey, 32, posted several shots from the sunny location.

The singer is currently on tour in Australia, where she’ll perform four more dates on her Mrs Carter Show World Tour before returning to America later this month.
