Only 5 months old, and little Blue Ivy has already accomplished something: dual citizenship!
Little Blue Ivy has been named an honorary citizen of the Croation Island of Hvar, the very place Beyonce and Jay Z vacationed together last summer. Turns out, the celebrity couple took a walk on the island and happened upon Blue Ivy. Beyonce was already pregnant at the time, and as her video blog shows, was quite inspired by the creeping, indigenous plant.
This media attention has made the island a popular vacation destination, and Lonely Planet named Hvar the 5th best vacation destination of 2012. So, the Island wanted to give a nod to the young family in the most diplomatic of ways…
“The story of the origin of the name of your daughter has brought enormous media attention and therefore tourist promotion to the town and island of Hvar,” Major Pjerino Bebic wrote in a letter to Jay Z and crew. “Because of this, I have decided to confer on your daughter the status of honourary citizen of the town of Hvar.”
Pretty cool way for little Blue Ivy to start her life!
