This is not a drill. Repeat: This is not a drill.
At Beyonce and Jay Z's On the Run tour kick off in Miami last night, the King and Queen of music released never-before-seen footage of their super-secret 2008 wedding, Blue Ivy's birth, and more intimate family moments. For a couple that's so intensely private, this is a monumental pop-culture moment.
With the words "This Is Real Life" flashing up on the screen and Bey and Jay singing a mash-up of "Forever Young" and "Halo," Mr. and Mrs. Carter played home movies, giving fans a glimpse of how they live when they're not on stage.
First up: Clips of their ultra-hush-hush April 4, 2008 wedding, which shows the future Mr. and Mrs. Carter getting their matching IV tattoos. Then, a shot of them saying their vows and receding from the ceremony. (Notice Bey's blue manicure as Jay slips on her wedding ring!)
Next, a clip we never expected to see but are so happy we did: Blue Ivy's birth. The pair shared a shot of Hov holding Yoncé's adorable belly, and a post-labor clip of baby Blue in the hospital.
And of course, even cuter stolen moments from Blue's first few years: Daddy Jay playing with her in the pool, little Blue riding on Jay's back as he does pushups, giggling after she kisses mommy Bey, and playing the piano with her parents.
These clips only further prove one thing: We're crazy in love with this family.
