Beyonce is keeping Blue Ivy close to her chest.
In a (we have to say) supremely sweet new black-and-white photo posted to Mrs. Carter's Instagram page, Beyonce is reclining in what looks like a hot tub, cradling her nearly 1 ½-year-old daughter. The singer has reconstructed her Cuba look - hair piled on head (this time in a turban), oversized shades, chandelier earrings. Baby Blue Ivy sports stripes and a hair bow.
Another vacation shot (it's not known where the Carters are relaxing) shows the superstar leaning over in a bikini, a white cover-up billowing over top, her hair loose. She's standing next to a cruiser of a bike.
The North American leg of The Mrs. Carter World Tour starts June 28 in L.A.
