Parents, how has your child inspired you to become better?
Jay-Z’s baby girl, Blue Ivy, inspired him to take swimming lessons. Hov appeared on “The Shop: Uninterrupted,” and spoke on how before his first child/daughter Blue was born. He knew it was essential to learn how to swim.
Jay Z said he couldn’t “fathom” not saving Blue if God-forbid. She was in the water and couldn’t get out. “If she ever fell in the water and I couldn’t get her, I couldn’t even fathom that thought. I gotta learn how to swim. That’s it. That was the beginning of our relationship.”
Jay-Z shared a funny story about telling Blue back in February that he was nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Hov was taking her to school, and he told her the news, but she wasn’t impressed. As she was getting out the car, Hov said, “Yo, give me a kiss I’m in the Hall of Fame! ‘She’s like ‘Bye, dad.'”
