Meet baby Blue Ivy Carter!
About 24 hours before the baby’s big HBO debut, a still from the 10-second interaction was leaked on the social networking site Twitter and instantly became a top retweet.
In the shot (pictured above), Beyonce proudly holds adorable 13 month old baby Blue, who is clad in a white crochet sundress. Beyoncé, her hair in braids, smiles from ear to ear as she glances at her pride and joy.
The “Halo” singer hits cable this weekend with a documentary on HBO entitled, “Life Is But a Dream.” In it, Bey reveals her pregnant belly to squash those persistent rumors she faked her pregnancy and had a surrogate carry her daughter.
In one scene, before she announced she was expecting at the 2011 VMAs, Beyoncé tells the camera,
“So this is my belly and I’m 20 weeks … if you can see that I’m pregnant I’m just going to have to own it! My baby may be debuting itself on the awards.”
Prior to her HBO Documentary airing, Queen B also hits Oprah’s OWN network with an appearance on “Oprah’s Next Chapter.”

In another Beyoncé revelation, the singer reveals in her Oprah Next Chapter interview that while pregnant with Blue she packed on a good 57 pounds … which she then had to quickly lose for a big four-night concert weekend last May in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
“I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man,” she said.
Bey said the rapper has helped her “on so many levels.”
“You know we were friends first for a year and a half before we went on any date on the phone for a year and a half,” she said. “And that foundation is so important in a relationship. And just to have someone that you just like is so important and someone that is honest.”
Beyonce gave birth to her first child, daughter Blue Ivy, in January 2012. She told Winfrey that Blue Ivy’s favorite nursery rhyme is ”Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” But the “Love On Top” singer said her daughter has not taken away her passion for performing.
“I feel like I did a show three months after I gave birth which was really crazy. I had clearly never given birth and didn’t know that I would gain 60 pounds,” she said, before clarifying that she gained a total of 57 pounds.
“But I really wanted to know. I feel so fortunate to do my job. I love my job. I love singing. I love the way it feels.”
Beyonce’s interview with Winfrey will air Saturday, February 16, at 8/7c on OWN, just before her HBO documentary “Life Is but a Dream” airs at 9 p.m. ET
