Rather than throwing a party jam-packed with her famous friends, Beyoncé opted for a low-key 31st birthday bash with her hubby Jay-Z and their seven-month-old daughter Blue Ivy!
According to the Daily Mail, the pop diva spent her special day on a boat in the Mediterranean and was spotted looking casual in a blue and white jumper holding a glass of wine.
However, the usually-private star did share some birthday messages from her celebrity pals on her official website.
“For dear sweet BB on the occasion of her 31st birthday... we love you so very much. Love Gwyneth, Chris, Apple and Moses,’ Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow said in a handwritten note.
Bey’s former Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams also paid tribute.
“Happy birthday to youuu!! I love you so very much. I am so thankful you’re in my life,” her letter said.
While the ‘Crazy In Love’ singer’s mum Tina Knowles sent her well wishes by writing,
“God blessed me with one of the greatest gifts in my life on Sept. 4, 1981. Happy birthday.”
The 31-year-old’s younger sister, Solange also wrote,
“There is no-one like you in the world, of all of your mind blowing achievements that one that first comes to mind is your kindess.”
And there was a note from Jay-Z’s mum Gloria Carter too.
“You came into my life a sweet Southern girl. (LOL) You’ve blossomed into an amazing woman. I admire how you remain grounded and humble, and you haven’t let success change the person that you are. Mama Carter,” she gushed.
