Blue Ivy's citizenship to the island nation is a small thank you for driving tourism.
Oh the perks of being music royalty!
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy, has been granted honorary citizenship to the nation of Croatia.
According to MTV, the news comes 10 months after the couple famously vacationed along the Adriatic Sea after Beyoncé revealed her baby bump at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.
Earlier this year, Beyoncé released a small movie clip on her Tumblr account of her stumbling across a blue ivy tree on the beach. “We woke up this morning, took a nice little walk, passed by this beautiful blue true,” said Beyoncé in the video. “I think it’s blue ivy, which would be quite appropriate.”
The couple’s vacation to the small town of Hvar in Croatia has increased tourism and interest in the nation.
“The story of the origin of your girl’s name, Blue Ivy, has brought huge media attention and great tourism to the town of Hvar,” wrote Mayor Pjerino Bebic in a letter to the couple. “I have decided to grant your daughter the status of honorary citizen of the town.”
In addition to granting Blue Ivy citizenship, Mayor Bebic is inviting the couple to return for another vacation.
