Check out Beyonce and Blue Ivy in the hot tub: Is that safe?
We love it when Beyonce shares a pic of daughter Blue Ivy, now 17 months old, on her Tumblr. Bey and husband Jay-Z are fairly private as celebrity parents, so it's fun to see how she's growing up.
But a recent photo, while gorgeous and touching, had us wondering. The black-and-white snap shows Bey and her daughter snuggling…in a hot tub. Most hot tubs do not allow children under 12, and there's a reason: according to the AAP's HealthyChildren.org, babies and young children can overheat and should never use them. Hot tubs are also not advised for pregnant women, according to the American Pregnancy Association. So there's further confirmation that Beyonce is not pregnant…not that we needed it.
