Blue Ivy's star-studded birthday bash
Beyoncé and Jay Z threw their daughter Blue Ivy a star-studded, fairy-themed party to celebrate her fourth birthday.
Coldplay's Chris Martin and Beyoncé's Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland were among the guests who helped the youngster mark her big day at a fairy-themed party thrown by her parents.
E! News reports: ''The party featured a big birthday cake, ice cream, lots of more food and balloons, plus an entertainer who made balloon animals. There were also areas for kids to play with Barbies, Play-Doh and LEGOs.''
The party was held on Saturday, two days after Blue Ivy turned four. Beyoncé's mother Tina Knowles recently revealed that the little girl sees herself as Beyoncé and Jay Z's ''friend'' rather than their child.
She said: ''She's with her parents seven days a week and, you know, that's such a blessing that she can be with her parents all the time. ''Sometimes she thinks she's a friend more than the kid.'' In September, Blue Ivy made a special handwritten card bearing the phrase ''#1 Mom'' for the Crazy in Love hitmaker's 34th birthday.
Proud mum Beyoncé shared a picture of the card on her Instagram account and thanked fans for their own well wishes. She said: ''Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all my birthday wishes.''
