Cape Town – Blue Ivy celebrated her 8th birthday on Monday – and proud Papa G, Mathew Knowles, shared a never-before-seen picture of Bey and Jay's little girl to celebrate.

"Happy Birthday to my beautiful and oldest granddaughter Blue Ivy," Mathew wrote. "Love, Papa G."

In the photo shared on Instagram, Blue is posing against an orange backdrop while wearing her backpack, and though we're not sure when exactly the photograph was taken or where the 8-year-old was headed we're getting serious Beyoncé vibes – we're talking about Bey's full Instagram feed of her best looks, of course.


Blue Ivy, who is currently in the second grade, is the eldest child of Beyoncé and Jay-Z and big sister to twins, Sir and Rumi (2). At just eight years old Blue has already appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 and won her first major award for Brown Skin Girl, with Bey calling her daughter a "cultural icon".
