Blue plays lifeguard as her grandmother jumps off a yacht.
Adorable Blue Ivy Isn’t So Sure Grandma Tina Knowles-Lawson Can Swim

As Beyoncé continues her Formation World Tour, the singer and her family are having the best summer ever.

Over the weekend, the Knowles-Carters took a little time to relax on a yacht in the south of France while Queen Bey enjoyed a break between shows. But things got a little insane when Bey’s mom, Tina Knowles-Lawson, decided to take things up a notch by jumping off the yacht.

In a video posted to Instagram, Lawson braces herself for the jump as a concerned Blue asks, “Do you really know how to swim?” Nothing like a little doubt before jumping off a yacht.

This is my first jump from the second story . Which gave me the courage to go up higher.

Blue’s concern is met with laughter and Lawson responds, “Don’t scare me, Blue,” right before she plunges into the sea.

We’re sure Blue, 4-year-old lifeguard-in-training, held her breath the entire time as she watched her grandma dive into the water, but seconds after the jump Lawson surfaces and gives the okay.
