Blue Ivy is officially considered a citizen in Croatia!

After Blue’s parents Jay-Z and Beyonce’s summer vacation in Croatia spawned the first photographs of Bey’s baby bump and put the spotlight on the island, the mayor showing gratitude by offering Blue honorary citizenship.

The Carters were also inspired by the island to choose their daughter’s name. “I think it’s blue ivy, which would be quite appropriate,” mentioned Bey in a video discussing a tree in Croatia.

In a letter to the couple, Mayor Pjerino Bebic wrote “The story of the origin of your girl’s name, Blue Ivy, has brought huge media attention and great tourism promotion to the town of Hvar. I have decided to grant your daughter the status of honorary citizen of the town.”

The mayor also invited the family to return to the town of Hvar, which he says is the “sunniest town in Croatia.”

Looks like Blue just doesn’t stop winning.
