The mother-of-one famously announced her first pregnancy at the MTV VMAs in August 2011 as she posed on the red carpet cradling a small baby bump. Her daughter Blue Ivy turned three in January, and the proud mother shared a photo of their celebrations which included a Frozen themed ice sculpture and rainbow coloured birthday cake.

Beyoncé has spoken openly about her joy at being a mother, and previously told Oprah Winfrey that she felt “complete” after having her daughter.

“My story did not feel complete and I didn’t know why but… after I gave birth I looked at my diaries and everything made sense,” she said. “Everything just completely connected and I said now I know who I am… I wasn’t complete before my daughter.”
