Beyoncé has been keeping a low profile during lockdown and is staying at her home in LA with her husband Jay-Z and their children. The star tends to keep her twins out of the spotlight, but Blue has made a number of high-profile appearances with her parents over the past few years. Just before the lockdown, the little girl attended a basketball game with her dad at the Staples Centre in LA, and was pictured getting a pep talk from the rapper after feeling shy approaching LeBron James for his autograph.

There is no doubt that Beyoncé is a doting mum, and the star gave an insight into her family life during a rare television interview with Good Morning America last year. She said: "Being a mother, my family is my biggest priority. It's not many films that the parents can come and feel the way I feel about The Lion King, and feel that and pass that legacy onto their kids." She also opened up about her surprise at finding out she was expecting twins in her Homecoming documentary last April, which reflected on her headlining Coachella. The Formation singer said: "I was supposed to do Coachella the year prior, but I got pregnant unexpectedly. And it ended up being twins which was even more of a surprise to me."
