The 2018 Grammys were a bust for women, to be honest, but there was one saving grace from the evening. Actually, make that two saving graces: Beyoncé and her 6-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. These two stole the show, hands down—and Bey didn’t even perform. They just lived their lives, and dozens of photographers were there to capture it.
Seriously, every facial expression Blue made throughout the evening sent Twitter users ablaze. Things hit a fever pitch when a clip of Blue seemingly telling Beyoncé and Jay Z to calm down during the show went viral. It’s a hilarious, endearing moment that confirmed Blue’s actually the one calling the shots in the Carter household. As she should be!
And now we have even more proof of this: A photographer at the Grammys snapped a pic of Beyoncé holding Blue’s snacks and juice box, and it’s quickly taking over the Internet. For good reason, too: To the world, Beyoncé is this untouchable music deity, but to Blue she’s just her mom, who holds the snacks for safe keeping. That’s incredibly humbling, and it’s a nice little reminder that everyone—even Beyoncé—is a human being. Here’s the pic:
Of course, the Twitter reactions to this have been pretty great. “While we were all looking for #Beyonce at the #Grammys, she was out getting snacks for #BlueIvy,” a radio station tweeted. “She’s wearing $6.8 million worth of diamonds, but who cares? Beyonce clutching Blue Ivy’s juice box is everything,” tweeted someone else.

Sigh. If only things from the actual Grammys show got us this excited.
