Blue Ivy is an amaz­ing sis­ter

Cou­ple re­cently bought a man­sion closer to old­est child’s school

Pretoria News Weekend - - NEWS -

Bey­oncé and Jay-Z wor­ried their old­est daugh­ter would “feel left out” when they had twins. The cou­ple wel­comed Sir and Rumi into the world in June and were re­lieved that five-year-old Blue Ivy quickly adapted to no longer be­ing an only child and has proven to be an “amaz­ing” older sis­ter.

A source said: “Bey­oncé has been very busy with the new­borns, but she’s also been able to re­lax a bit. It’s helped her that Blue has been such an amaz­ing big sis­ter.

“There was no need to worry be­cause Blue is great. She takes her job as a big sis­ter very se­ri­ously and helps out a lot.”

Be­fore the ba­bies ar­rived, the Crazy in Love hit­maker en­sured her fo­cus was on Blue and “made sure to spend lots of qual­ity time” with the young­ster.

The fam­ily re­cently splashed out on an $88 mil­lion (R1,1 bil­lion) man­sion closer to their old­est child’s school and Blue can’t wait to see her friends in kinder­garten in the next few weeks.

The in­sider said: “Blue is ex­cited about start­ing kinder­garten. She misses her friends. It will be fun for her to get back to her own life at school. Bey­oncé is ex­cited for her too but keeps say­ing that she can’t be­lieve Blue is start­ing kinder­garten. She thinks Blue is grow­ing up way too fast!”

It was re­cently re­vealed Bey­once, 35, and her hus­band – who are worth more than $1 bil­lion be­tween them – have a $52.8 mil­lion mort­gage on their new Bel Air home.

Ac­cord­ing to the Los An­ge­les Times, if the pair’s mort­gage had an in­ter­est rate of 4% they would be pay­ing more than $252 000 per month for the plush pad over the next 30 years.

If the cou­ple ever need their own space they should find some in the 30 000 square feet of liv­ing space, or they might like to treat them­selves to a re­lax­ing ses­sion in their spa after a tough day record­ing songs.

Jay, 47, is well known to be a big fan of the Brook­lyn Nets bas­ket­ball team, and he has enough space to in­vite them to Los An­ge­les for a game as his house boasts a full-size court.

There is also a me­dia room which could be ideal for pro­mot­ing their lat­est ven­tures, as well as sep­a­rate staff quar­ters, four out­door swim­ming pools and a well­ness cen­tre. – Bang Show­biz
