She may not have the trademark diva locks or be decked out in tall platform heels just yet, but there's no mistaking the face of the future Mrs. Carter. Beyonce posted an adorable childhood snapshot of herself on her Tumblr recently, proving that she's always been a tiny star in the making.
In the precious photo, a young Beyonce stands against a wall for what is presumably a school performance, in a gold lame one-shoulder costume, gold turban and large beaded earrings. The little girl in the photo looks to be about seven or eight years old.
It's a seemingly reflective moment for the busy superstar, who is currently in the middle of her Mrs. Carter World Tour. The "Love on Top" singer, 31, has been regularly posting a number of snapshots from her adventures, ranging from sights on the streets to dramatic photos from her performances.
Through it all, however, Beyonce's priority is still her 18-month-old daughter with husband Jay Z, 43.
"In the back of my mind, she's my priority," she told ABC News in May. "Life is completely different now. So I'm -- I feel really, really just lucky that I can still do what I love and now have a way bigger meaning. And that's to be her mother."
Jay Z couldn't agree more. In fact, the Magna Carter Holy Grail rapper revealed to Hot 97's Angie Martinez earlier this month, he wouldn't mind having a few more little ones in the house.
"Absolutely, God willing," he replied when Martinez asked whether he would want more children, joking that he would ideally like "a little basketball team" worth of children.
"The world would be a better place," he said with a chuckle.
