Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z don’t live like mere mortals.
On Thursday, the 30-year-old new mom shared dozens of personal photos from their worldwide travels via Tumblr. The “Run the World (Girls)” singer also included videos with former Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams, in addition to a video of her pregnant — and in a bikini! — while on vacation in Croatia last September. (A third video shows Knowles playing Connect Four on an overseas flight.)
“We woke up this morning, took a nice little walk, passed by this beautiful blue tree,” a then-pregnant Beyonce said, pointing at the plant in one clip. “I think it’s Blue Ivy, which would be quite appropriate!” (The couple’s first child, Blue Ivy, was born a few months later on January 7.)
Other photos include a svelte Beyonce rocking a string bikini while scuba diving, lounging beachside in a hammock and enjoying a mojito. The photos chronicle Beyonce’s luxe vacations with her husband, featuring her in breezy caftans, jeweled headpieces and more.
Showing a more personal side — a rarity for the uberprivate star — Knowles also included snapshots with Jay-Z, 40, BFF Gwyneth Paltrow, 39, and sister Solange Knowles, 25.
Beyonce also tweeted for the first time Thursday, writing: “Hey world, it’s B! I’m so excited to invite you to my new beyonce.com — we’ve been working hard and it’s finally ready for you.”
Though Beyonce is currently taking time off to bond with daughter Blue Ivy, she won’t be out of the spotlight for very long: she’s scheduled to perform three times over Memorial Day weekend at Revel Beach’s Ovation Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
