With no sign of marital discord, pop royalty Jay-Z and Beyoncé stole the spotlight with the help of their 2-year-old Blue Ivy in a heartfelt family moment at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.
When Jay-Z walked on stage with Blue Ivy to give his wife the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, an emotional Bey had to catch her breath as the two kissed and hugged. Blue clapped along and got a kiss from mom, then, if you weren’t teary yet, she excitedly shouted “Yay Mommy” into the mic.
The two’s rare public moment of tenderness was a far cry from divorce rumors. The appearance was capped off when Jay gave the moonman to Mrs. Carter, “the greatest living entertainer, Beyoncé.”
Watch it here. Try to hold back the tears.
