Beyoncé and Jay-Z rent out an amusement park for Blue Ivy's birthday

Doting parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z pulled out all the stops for Blue Ivy’s birthday on Tuesday, renting out an entire theme park so their little one could enjoy her special day in privacy.

On Jan. 7, music’s royal couple shut down Miami’s Jungle Island – an amusement park that features a zoo and a botanical garden – so their daughter could visit the kangaroos, penguins, orangutans and other wildlife without distraction.

Looking chic and comfortable in a black sweatshirt and skinny jeans, Beyoncé accessorized her daytime outfit with a chunky gold necklace, large hoop earrings and a toque.

Not to be outdone, baby Blue looked adorable in a military-green tutu, leopard print runners and a gold nameplate necklace. Her proud poppa kept things casual in a grey sweatshirt, Nike shoes and a baseball cap.


Afterwards, the Carter family enjoyed a laidback lunch with friends and family at Joey’s Italian Café, where they reportedly shared two pizzas and salads.

That same day, Beyoncé uploaded a photo collage of cards made by fans to Blue’s Tumblr page, with the caption: “Happy Birthday Miss Carter.” She also released a new song called "God Made You Beautiful" on Jay-Z’s Life + Times blog as a tribute to her baby girl.
