Beyonce & Jay-Z’s romance through the years.
True to form, Beyonce celebrated her 31st birthday in class — on a yacht off the coast of the South of France with baby Blue Ivy and husband Jay-Z.

Looking yacht chic in an all-blue getup, the songstress paid homage to her music mogul hubby with a “J” letter-man sweater. The power couple took a break from their busy schedules, relaxing with fine food and wine, lounging on the yacht’s decks and taking in the awe-inspiring landscape through binoculars.

How did Jay-Z help his wife relax on her special day?

The rapper, 42, took over daddy duty, doting on daughter Blue Ivy as Beyonce soaked up some quality alone time. Blue Ivy — who’s already clocked in some time on a yacht — seemed at ease in her daddy’s arms.

The nine-month-old is quickly becoming a pro at luxury travel. Just last week, she was spotted getting out of a helicopter in New York with her famous dad.

And over Labor Day weekend, Jay and Bey hit up Philadelphia, Penn., where the Roc-A-Fella founder put on his first-ever Made in America Music Festival. Beyonce watched on while her husband headlined the tour for a crowd of nearly 50,000 concertgoers, dancing during his performances of “99 Problems” and “Dirt of Your Shoulder.”

Some of the couple’s famous friends made special appearances at the festival, including Rita Ora, Kanye West, Pusha T and Big Sean.

President Barack Obama even made a cameo via a prerecorded broadcast, reminding the crowd to vote in this year’s upcoming election and telling the audience that Jay’s journey to superstardom is “what Made In America means.”

Is Blue Ivy on her way to becoming the most spoiled celebrity baby yet? Sound off in our comments section below.
