Beyoncé and Jay-Z's first born daughter is already following in their showbiz footsteps at the tender age of eight.

Blue Ivy Carter has bagged her first paid role in the entertainment industry as the very cute narrator of audiobook Hair Love.

Talented Blue has lent her vocal talent to bring the book - based on Matthew A Cherry's Oscar-winning short film - to life.

The story focuses on an African American dad who attempts to style his daughter's hair for the first time.

It was first published in May 2019 and features illustrations from Vashti Harrison.

A teaser clip posted to Twitter by Cherry, gives a preview of Blue reading from the book in her sweet American accent.

And it's not the only skill Blue has been sharing with the world lately.

Last month, her grandmother Tina shared a look at her spooky Halloween make-up that she revealed had been done by Blue.

"My Blue is a great makeup artist ! She made me into Grandma Skeleton !!" Beyonce's mum told her Instagram followers as she showed off her dramatic transformation.

The youngster has also made cameos in a number of famous parents' music videos and moonlighted as a freestyle rapper on dad Jay-Z's 4:44 album in 2017.

As well as daughter Blue, Beyonce and her husband Jay are also parents to twins Sir and Rumi, three.

Grammy Award winner Bey recently opened up about parenting her brood in the lockdown during her glamorous Vogue cover shoot.

"I have become a better listener," said the mother. "Blue is very smart, and she is aware that there is a shift, but it is my job as a parent to do my best to keep her world as positive and safe as can be for an 8-year-old."

She went on: "My best advice is to love [your children] harder than ever.

"I let my daughter know that she is never too young to contribute to changing the world. I never underestimate her thoughts and feelings, and I check in with her to understand how this is affecting her," said the Formation hitmaker.
