Beyonce Breastfeeds Blue Ivy in Public


Count Beyonce Knowles among the millions of mothers worldwide who are proud to breastfeed their children out in the open.

Escorted by husband Jay-Z, the "Girls (Run the World)" singer, 30, took along daughter Blue Ivy, seven weeks, for a casual lunch at Sant Ambroeus in NYC's West Village last Saturday. And Beyonce nursed her little girl at her the table, an observer tells Us Weekly. Two additional sources confirm to Us that the first-time mom has been breastfeeding her daughter.

Beyonce was snapped leaving the eatery holding her newborn in a blue BabyBjorn — covered fashionably with a black Donni Charm scarf.

Mother and child emerged the very next day; this time, Beyonce held Blue in an exotic leopard-print wrap by Baby Bjorn.

Although the superstar is happily taking some time off to be a mom with Blue at their massive Tribeca loft and Scarsdale, New York mansion she shares with Jay-Z, 43, she's gearing up for two musical projects in 2012 — and a potential film, One Hit Wonders. The brainchild of Glee creator Ryan Murphy, the musical comedy may star her pal Gwyneth Paltrow plus Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon as faded 90s singers who team up in an effort to reclaim their fame. Beyonce's potential role in the flick is not yet known.
