The first-time dad exited his ride carrying Blue, who was dressed in a cute white long-sleeved onesie and wearing protective baby headphones for the flight. Blue kept her face buried in her dad's chest, but adorable full head of curly hair was visible.

Grammy-winning singer Melanie Fiona, who Jay-Z co-manages, told Us Weekly in March, "Beyonce says Blue changes every day and looks just like Jay now."

After giving birth to Blue in January 2012, Beyonce, 30, worked hard to lose the baby weight. During a concert in Atlantic City, NJ in March, the singer shared with her fans, "Y'all have no idea how hard I worked! I had to lose 60 pounds. They had me on that treadmill. I ate lettuce!"
