Giving all of her fans a Christmas Eve treat, Beyoncé Knowles posted a lovely photograph of her beautiful daughter Blue Ivy on Tuesday night (December 24).

The almost-two-year-old cutie looks cute sitting barefoot next to her famous mom, sporting a white sundress with a white flower in her hair.

According to Knowles, the image was captured while she and Blue Ivy were down in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil shooting a video clip for her new song “Blue.”

Of her surprise visual album, Beyonce explained, “I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it. I am bored with that. I feel like I am able to speak directly to my fans. There’s so much that gets between the music, the artist and the fans. I felt like I didn’t want anybody to give the message when my record is coming out. I just want this to come out when it’s ready and from me to my fans.”

“I see music. It’s more than just what I hear. When I’m connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they’re all connected to the music.”
