Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, is getting a lot of love from her aunt, Solange Knowles. But Solange, Beyonce’s younger sister, who has a 7-year-old son of her own, says she she isn’t eager to start dishing baby advice to her older sister. “I think it’s really important for every mother to find their own way. I think it’s actually the most annoying thing when you’re a new mum and you’re getting so much advice from other mothers,” Solange said. “You really just have to feel it out for yourself. But she’s my best friend and we talk at least every other day.” (Popular Critic)
