Beyoncé has given a touching insight into her life as a mum by sharing an adorable picture of her with her daughter Blue Ivy.
In the heartwarming photograph shared on Tumblr, the superstar singer can be seen crouching down in a stunning red tulle dress with her swept up into a high beehive, beaming at her 16-month-old daughter.
Just the small arm of Blue Ivy can be seen reaching out from her buggy, touching her mum on the tip of her nose with her index finger.

The beautiful snap is a real insight into the mother-daughter relationship that the two share. Beyoncé also posted a pic of her daughter with a jewelled crown on her head, making her baby girl the queen of the show.
Throughout her global tour, The Mrs. Carter Show world tour, mum-of-one Beyoncé has kept her daughter close by her side. The Single Ladies singer invested in a personalised director's chair for Blue Ivy, which bears her initials BIC, similar to a chair Beyoncé owns herself.
According to another picture that the star posted on her tumblr page, a director’s chair isn't the only purchase she has made for her baby daughter. A tiny, adorable gold-coloured tulle dress with a satin ribbon wrapped around the waist was shown on a hanger.
Another cute photo shows Beyoncé trying on a fuschia-coloured child-size high-heel with the velvet straps laced up to her ankle.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z previously said that Blue Ivy would not be without her home comforts while she accompanies her mum around the world. The couple said they planned to take furniture and toys the youngster is familiar with to stop her feeling homesick while on the road.
Beyoncé has spoken of her incredible bond with her daughter Blue Ivy: "When I get up in the morning, the best in the world is to see [her] face. [She is] Already starting to talk, every day is different and every day she learns something new."
