As her due date edges ever nearer it was an indulgent Beyoncé who showered young daughter Blue Ivy with affection on Tuesday morning.
Taking to Instagram, the heavily pregnant R&B superstar shared a snap in which she holds her oldest child aloft while offering her a loving kiss.
Beyoncé, 35, is expecting twins with rapper husband Jay Z, and her already prominent baby bump is exposed courtesy of the open semi-sheer robe she wears over a matching blue bikini.
Meanwhile Blue Ivy, five, sports a raffish wide-brimmed hat and patterned swimsuit as she looks down at her doting mother. Captioning the image, Beyoncé simply wrote: ‘Us.’
