Ten years ago today (Jan. 7), Blue Ivy Carter was born, and it’s a moment Tina Knowles-Lawson will never forget. In honor of the special day, the fashion designer, better known as Solange and Beyoncé’s mother, took to social media to send birthday wishes to her oldest granddaughter as she celebrates another trip around the sun.
“My beautiful, talented and super-smart Grandaughter Blue Ivy turned 10 today! God it seemed like yesterday you came into the world running things,” she wrote. “Blue is my little Capricorn Twin. I prayed for her to be born on my birthday, but she did what she always does she came when she got good and ready. Three days later but we still share the bond.
“She reminds me that ‘Grandma you are acting just like a Capricorn.’ Blue gives the best advice like a grown person I sometimes forget that she is so young!!!” Knowles-Lawson doted. “Blue is one of those rare gifted people that can do everything well! God Blessed me the day you were born! My Sweet, Beautiful Baby Blue. Happy Birthday.”
Blue Ivy was born on January 7, 2012 months after Beyoncé’s surprise pregnancy announcement at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. She’s since proved to be as talented as her parents, modeling, singing, snagging awards and making history along the way.
In the last year alone, she’s appeared in campaigns for her mother’s Ivy Park collection and has won a Voice Arts Award, a Grammy, a VMA and an NAACP Image Award. She is now the youngest VMA and the second-youngest artist to secure a Grammy Award.

Blue Ivy has so much presence, personality, and positivity around her aura. It's hard raising a child, much less one in the public eye but Beyoncé and
Jay Z have given their daughter the space and love to be herself. #HappyBirthdayBlueIvy pic.twitter.com/RZ91MiqoQ8
