Beyonce and Jay-Z EXCLUSIVE: Power couple enjoy Christmas at New York park with family

They have had an incredible 2018 which included their highly-successful On the Run II Tour, filling stadiums across the world.

But Beyonce and Jay-Z chose to spend their Christmas in a more low-key manner, spending their time with their loved ones and ringing in the festive break with a family trip to Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York on Christmas Eve. 

The outing was to honour Jay Z’s grandmother Hattie White as they presented her with her own bench in the park, with the music mogul being joined by wife Beyonce and their children; Blue Ivy, six, and their 18-month-old twins Rumi and Sir.

Drunk In Love hit-maker Beyonce, 37, was seen cuddling the couple’s youngest children in her arms during their festive visit.  

Alongside her Jay Z (real name Shawn Carter) appeared emotional as The Carters came together to share their thoughtful present with the rapper’s grandmother Hattie – dedicating a bench to her in her name.    

There was a touching inscription on the long seat which read:  ‘Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago. With Love and Admiration to our root, Hattie White.’

Jay-Z’s grandmother seemed touched by the gesture as she stood in front of the bench holding a hand to her heart, as the 99 Problems star wrapped his arm around her.

Little Blue, meanwhile, was seen looking sweetly at her great grandmother, as she wrapped up warm in a pale pink quilted jacket and black beanie hat that she teamed with a festive pair of reindeer ears. 

Her famous mother looked fashionable as always in an all-white ensemble that boasted a hugely over-sized padded coat and came complete with matching Nike Air Force 1 low-top sneakers.

Beyonce’s braided locks were parted in the middle and styled into two ponytails that fell past her shoulders.

The global superstar certainly looked in the Christmas spirit as she joined her family out in NYC, flashing a big smile on her face throughout much of the outing as they marked the special occasion.  

She was seen doting on her brood during their time at the park and was spotted cradling her twin children in her arms. 

Making sure they were wrapped up from the chillier temperatures, Beyonce sweetly dressed Rumi and Sir in similar ensembles. While Rumi was clad in jeans, mini Timberland boots and a pink winter coat to match her older sister Blue, Sir was seen sporting a khaki-green coat in a matching style and cobalt blue beanie hat. 

Beyonce has previously spoken about motherhood and revealed to American Vogue last year, that she now ‘really understands’ her body after experiencing childbirth.

She told the publication: ‘Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body, I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it.

‘Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame.’

Speaking of the value of family, she added: ‘I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more. Family has always been important. I’ve always had my mother and my father and my husband… life is so much more than… it’s not defined by any of this [fame and money].’

Jay Z, meanwhile, cut a cool figure in a grey coat with a fur-lined collar over jeans and grey sneakers.

He sported his signature black Roc Nation snapback hat over his growing locks as he enjoyed the special day with his grandmother and mother Gloria Carter. 

Their heartwarming outing comes after Beyonce treated fans to a slew of sultry snaps on her Instagram page. 

The Freedom vocal talent caught the eye with her scanty uploads, as she was seen clad in a risque silver bodysuit that boasted a plunging neckline and a complementing blazer that sat at her thigh.   

The mother-of-three took a page out of Kim Kardashian’s fashion playbook, as she added a pair of 90s-inspired, clear heels to her look and accessorized with a trendy, white purse and statement earrings.

She finished off her look with glamorous make-up – choosing not to reveal the reason behind her VIP look as she shared it with her followers. 

Although, her uploads could be seen as Beyonce brushing off a fake album leak in recent days. 

The leak had targeted the former Destiny’s Child Member and confused fans, as they were led to believe she had released not one, but two new albums on Apple Music and Spotify. 

However, to their dismay, news of the albums appeared to be fake as the counterfeit albums – Back Up, Rewind and Have Your Way – turned out to be older or previously recorded songs. 

Fans were quick to point out that none of the music was new, and they were subsequently removed.
