Beyoncé Reveals Blue Ivy’s Face in HBO Documentary
More than a year after her birth, Blue Ivy Carter is finally being shown off.
In Beyoncé's HBO documentary, "Life Is But a Dream," which premieres on Saturday, the singer shares a touching moment of her with her now-13-month-old daughter.
But 24 hours before the baby’s big debut, a still from the 10-second interaction was leaked on Twitter … and instantly became a retweet phenomenon.
In the shot, Blue – clad in a white crochet sundress – is standing up on her mother's lap as Beyoncé, her hair in braids, is beaming from ear to ear at her pride and joy.

Although Beyoncé and Jay-Z did reveal their newborn's face on Tumblr when she was first born in January 2012, they have made it a point to cover her up when out in public ever since.
In "Life Is But a Dream," the "Halo" singer also reveals her pregnant belly, squashing rampant rumors she faked it and instead had a surrogate carry her daughter. In one scene, before she announced she was expecting at the 2011 VMAs, Beyoncé tells the camera, "So this is my belly and I'm 20 weeks … if you can see that I'm pregnant I'm just going to have to own it! My baby may be debuting itself on the awards."

She also talks about the first time she felt Blue kick from inside her belly. "Made me cry," she says. "Kicked five times, I’m so excited!"
However, there was another big Beyoncé-centric revelation on Friday. In her Sunday night interview with Oprah Winfrey, the singer reveals that while pregnant with Blue she packed on a good 57 pounds … which she then had to quickly lose for a big four-night concert weekend last May in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
"I did a show three months after giving birth, which was crazy," Beyoncé tells Oprah. "I had clearly never given birth, and I didn't know that I would gain 60 pounds … 57 pounds."
But Beyoncé managed to shed every single pound in time for her first post-baby performance thanks to a strict diet and exercise regimen. “Y'all have no idea how hard I worked!" the singer, clad in a body-hugging silver bodysuit, exclaimed at the time to the first night’s sold-out audience. “They had me on that treadmill. I ate lettuce!"
However, it's not all about Beyoncé and Blue during the OWN interview. The singer also gushes to Oprah about her husband, who she says she was friends with for a year and a half before they even went on their first date.
“I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man," she shares, adding that what the two have "just gives me such a foundation."
