We can't say we deserved it, but we were thrilled to discover Beyoncé and Jay Z's ninth anniversary celebration included a little gift for us: Brand new photos of Queen Bey, her husband, and their daughter, Blue Ivy, from last year's anniversary celebration at the Grand Canyon. The photos, which the singer shared on her website, are pretty much perfect and give fans an inside look at Bey and Jay's incredible marriage.
While her website update featured shots of the singer and her husband in a variety of different sweet and goofy poses, we were also treated to a behind-the-scenes look at their Grand Canyon helicopter ride, her engraved anniversary ring, and some adorable snaps of the couple's daughter. Did we mention we want to know where Bey got Blue Ivy those XO sunglasses? Because they would be bachelorette party perfection.
But that's not all the singer, who is expecting twins, shared. To celebrate this year's anniversary, Beyoncé posted three separate Instagrams, including a short video with a montage of Bey and Jay Z's relationship that has us collectively uttering so many awws. It's probably a good idea to clear your schedule before tuning into this clip. If you haven't seen it yet, there's a good chance you'll be watching it on repeat the rest of the day.
Even better, the Instagram posts double as a teaser for the just-dropped music video for Beyoncé's new ballad, "Die With You." The song was originally released on the couple's anniversary two years ago, and it's now available on Tidal. The accompanying video is packed with home video clips of the duo, featuring clips of their wedding day, Blue Ivy, and some moments celebrating Beyoncé's current pregnancy.
Bey's mother, Tina Knowles, jumped in on the anniversary fun, too. "9 years already???" she wrote in her caption of the photo she shared from the couple's wedding day. "Congratulations to the Carters on their anniversary." The shot shows Beyoncé and Jay Z smiling and celebrating as they head back down the aisle as newlyweds.
All we can say is all the love in the air seriously made our day. Looks like this is one couple whose relationship is stronger than ever! We can't wait to see their family grow by two.
