Blue Ivy Carter is taking the internet by storm! Beyoncé’s 7-year-old daughter told her grandmother, Tina Knowles Lawson, a “corny joke” that left the Beyhive in stitches.

“It’s corny joke time, and I’m here with a very special guest, my beautiful granddaughter,” Knowles Lawson, 65, said in an Instagram video on Sunday, March 24. “She actually gave me the joke. So, here it goes!”

Blue, who remained off camera aside from a quick wave, then shared her punny pleasantry with her grandma’s 2 million Instagram followers.

“How many lips does a flower have?” she asked, to which Knowles Lawson responded, “Well, how many?”

“Two lips!” Blue quipped. “Get it? There’s a kind of flower that’s called a tulip.”

As Knowles Lawson struggled to contain her laughter, she replied, “I got it. I got it!”

Over on Twitter, Beyoncé’s dedicated legion of fans nearly lost their minds over Blue’s adorable voice, which the Grammy winner, 37, and her husband, Jay-Z, have briefly featured in several of their songs, most recently “Boss” from the couple’s 2018 joint album, Everything Is Love.

“Omg her voice sounds like a Disney princess,” one member of the Beyhive tweeted. Another echoed, “Okay Blue Ivy should do voice overs for Disney Cartoons.”

“HER VOICE SOUNDS SO MATURE,” a third fan pointed out, while another wrote, “Omg hearing her talk brings tears to my eyes like nooo she’s growing up too fast.”

Other admirers were hopeful that Blue will become an entertainer like her parents. “THAT VOICE! I just know Blue gon have some vocals when she grows up,” one Twitter user speculated.

Knowles Lawson told Us Weekly exclusively in November 2018 that Blue has been performing “since birth.” As for whether she wants to pursue show business? “Whatever she wants to do, she will definitely be able to do it because she’s good at a lot of things,” the fashion designer added.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z, 49, are also the parents of 21-month-old twins Rumi and Sir.
