As if Beyonce and Jay Z’s life doesn’t seem perfect enough already, it looks like their daughter Blu Ivy Carter is going to be some sort of prodigious genius or something. Life really is sweet for those guys, they must be in the illuminati or something.

"She is hilarious and she is fire. Lord, am I going to have me a time!" Knowles told Oprah Winfrey on an episode of Oprah's Next Chapter that was show an at the weekend, according to USA Today. "She's very smart. She's already reading flash cards. She's beautiful." Spare us the gushing Be, we were reading flash cards at that age too, possibly, our mums described as ‘special’ at that age at any rate, we’re pretty sure that’s what they meant by it.

This, allayed with what reported her telling the NFL Network earlier in the month, suggests Ivy is indeed on the way to becoming one of those insufferably precocious kids. "When I wake up in the morning, the best thing in the world is seeing her face," Beyoncé said then. "She's starting to talk. It's just such a beautiful time in my life to have a child and every day see something new and see her learn something new." Yeah, yeah, well done. Bitter? Us?
