Beyonce Knowles Carrying Baby Blue Ivy in NYC Pictures

Beyoncé Bundles Up Baby Blue For a Second Public Outing

Beyoncé Knowles held her daughter Blue Ivy Carter tight.

Beyoncé Knowles cradled baby Blue Ivy Carter in an animal-print wrap on Sunday as they strolled NYC. It was the second time the new mom took her daughter out on the town over the weekend. On Saturday, Beyoncé and Jay-Z were photographed with their little one outside of their home for the first time, as the family of three stopped at Sant Ambroeus in the West Village for some Italian food.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé chose to skip the Academy Awards festivities this weekend and stay close to their East Coast homebase with Blue Ivy. Beyoncé and Jay made the Oscars scene together back in 2007, the year her Dreamgirls was nominated for several awards, and she also took the stage at the show in 2009 to sing with Hugh Jackman. Despite their absence this year, many of Beyoncé and Jay's famous friends, including Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, were on hand for Hollywood's biggest night. Check out our recap of the 2012 Oscars for all the highlights from the evening, including Gwyneth's gorgeous Tom Ford gown!
