Nothing beats the joy and pride of your son or daughter winning an award in one of the most credible and respected awarding ceremonies in the world.
Well, Jay Z and Beyoncé recently wrote their names on the shortlist of the few parents whose children have won the world-acclaimed Grammy Award.
At only 9, the stars’ first daughter took home the award for the best music video category for Beyoncé's Brown Skin Girl video, Briefly.co.za has learnt. Blue Ivy received a writing credit for the aforementioned song.
To highlight the once-in-a-lifetime moment, Beyoncé on Wednesday, March 17, shared a video montage on Instagram which featured a timeline of all 28 of her own Grammy Award wins, the most wins by any female artist, as well as a special tribute to her firstborn daughter, Blue Ivy, who won her first Grammy at the just concluded 2021 Grammy awards show.
Blue Ivy would have been the youngest person to win a Grammy but that record is currently held by Leah Peasall, who won in 2001, aged eight.
However, that did not stop Beyoncé, Jay Z and Ivy from celebrating the win.
Briefly.co.za understands the family celebrated Ivy's win by going for a photoshoot in which the young one was captured flaunting her win by sipping a drink from her Grammy Award trophy.
Being a proud mum, Beyoncé shared photos of her daughter drinking out of her Grammy Award as she celebrated Ivy's big win on social media.
Briefly.co.za understands Ivy's win acted as a nod to Jay-Z's own Grammy-winning speech in 2014 when and where he gave a rare shout-out to his daughter. The rapper cheekily said his award would be his daughter's sippy cup when he was delivering his speech following his win.
Then, he told the audience that:
"I want to tell Blue, daddy got a gold sippy cup for you."
To add spice to a photo of herself sipping juice from her Grammy, Ivy rocked a crown to pass the message that she is the head of the music throne.
Many people who came across Beyoncé and Jay-Z's posts could not help but laud the two parents for raising kids who were actually following in their musical footsteps.
