Braided Beyonce Knowles: Manhattan Mommy Duty

Posted Wednesday July 18, 2012 1:34 PM GMT

Taking good care of her little bundle of joy, Beyoncé Knowles held Blue Ivy Carter close to her body as she walked past a swarm of shutterbugs in New York City today (July 18).

The “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” hitmaker donned a colorful patterned leggy dress with beautiful braided tresses and definitely wasn’t pleased to be disturbed as she headed into a Manhattan building.

In related news, one of Beyonce’s former backup dancers is gearing up to judge a new dancing competition in Dublin, Ireland called “Pump Up My Dance.”

John Graham, who worked with Knowles on her 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards performance, told press he’s hoping to bring some hip hop flavor to the Emerald Isle, as competition starts this fall at the Smock Alley Theatre.

Graham explained, "There are so many different styles in the show, but for me, I want to find someone who can get the dynamics, perform well and demonstrate how much they love dancing, but still do it the way we want."
