In 2011, Beyoncé confirmed the impending arrival of an heir to the Carter throne by rubbing her belly on the MTV VMA stage after performing "Love On Top." And for her second pregnancy? A goddess-esque Instagram shot that even Mother Nature would envy.

The twins will quickly learn that Halloween is a family affair in the Carter house. Bey and Blue went as Janet and Michael Jackson in 2014, and in 2015, Jay Z joined in to make a trio of Coming to America characters. In 2016, grandma Tina Knowles helped the crew channel Salt N' Pepa and DJ Spinderella, and the family continuted celebrations with Barbie get-ups

At 5 years old, Blue Ivy has already been to more awards shows, super bowls and music video sets than most of us will ever get anywhere near.

Considering Blue got two pint-sized luxury cars for her second birthday, we can only imagine how many piles of toys the twins will be racking up.

Beyoncé always makes sure her little one looks just as fierce as she does, and that means wearing everything from matching shoes to identical bathing suits. We can't wait to see what the fashionista will come up with for her IRL twins!

Blue Ivy's 4th birthday was a whimsical scene complete with a flower-filled ceiling, teepees, and racks of dresses.

As Beyoncé and her sister Solange proved with their spring party, you can always find a reason to celebrate with your little one.

Beyoncé brought Blue along for the 2016 MTV VMA red carpet, and they both looked like actual fairy royalty. Even if you can't quite splurge on the $11,000 dress Blue wore for the occasion, getting dolled up with your mini-me is sure to be a great time.
