Daniel Smith with mom Solange and Aunt Beyonce

Baby1_2 Baby6 And the other Destiny’s Child girls. Big thanks to Beyonce’s World for the photos, visit there for more. Click the numbers for the pics: 1 2 3

A few comments: I love that Burberry print on the stroller. Maybe Whitney or Patty know more about it? His little Nikes are cute. Solange looks great (don’t know about those moccasins though). And how CUTE is Daniel?!

Before anyone mentions how light he is, and that he has blue eyes-because someone always seems to mention it, and the post gets closed!-please remember that genes are funny things, that Solange’s husband (who she is apparently split from) is biracial, and that Solange’s mother is partially Creole. :)

Edit: Tiffany gives us some history on being Creole: Creole is a Southern culture, seasoning, etc…The term Creole was coined to identify lighter blacks from darker blacks in enslaved areas such as Louisiana and Texas. Using this term has fallen out of favor apparently, but Tina Knowles refers to herself/is referred to as being from this culture here , here , and here. I apologize if anyone was offended, that wasn’t the intent.

Is Beyonce the one who is holding him and the mum of Daniel (Solange) is pushing the pram? They look so alike! O mi gosh! they split up, didnt they just get married before the baby was born?

Luna on

He’s super-cute! Does anyone know how old he is?

luna on

Beyonce is holding the baby yeah, the guy behind them is a bodyguard i guess.

tink1217 on

he is so cute!!! maybe the stroller is a Silver Cross Micro or Mini?? Not sure.

Kimora on

He’s to cute, isn’t she kind of young to alreaday to split from her hubby? Genes are a funny thing because sometimes our own kids looks like someone other than the parents.

Candi on

The stroller is a Maclaren.I think Neimen Marcus has this one, along with the Kate Spade stroller.

cv on

What a doll! he is gorgeous!

Sarah, CBB Editor on

The baby is 7 months.

And, whomever is asking about them splitting up-it seems that they were married as soon as they found out they were pregnant. They were married February 27th and the baby was born Oct 18th…

Solange and Beyonce’s father is known as being quite strict, and Solange is still trying to break big into the music business, so I’m sure that they thought her being married while pregnant would be better for her image.

Thanks for making that point .I get sick of the dumb racial comments.Daniel is a cute little boy.

Stina on

He has great skin. I am italian, and I have some mixed cousins, they have light skin, with light green eyes!!! Very nice!!!! I think he is really cute!!!

penny on

He is GORGEOUS!!! What a sweet little guy! And Solange is very beautiful!

Patty on

It’s a Maclaren Quest stroller. Maclaren sells several different Quest models in various designer prints. You can get one at Neiman Marcus or on their website.

Eleanor on

Blimy i couldnt even walk in Beyonce’s heels let alone hold a baby! lol

crazy on

If my baby was as beautiful as that, then I’d consider having more than one. He certainly is going to grow up and become a gorgeous man.

ellie on

Solange split from her husband??!! How sad!

tamera on

awww look at those pink lips!!!!!!!!!! he’s gonna be gorgeous when he grows up!

Beca on

God he’s so beautiful! Look at those amazing eyes! He’s going to be a heartbreaker.

Ashton on

It is a Mac stroller, and you can only get it from Burberry UK, its not sold anywhere else.

Gorgeous baby. Beyonce looks like a happy aunt.

Ally on

I think he looks a lot like Beyonce and Solange’s mom, Tina. The eyebrows, the eyes, and the nose look almost identical to hers. Tina has light eyes too, though I don’t think hers are blue. He’s gorgeous, I bet he’s spoiled rotten by all those girls (in a good way).

Samia on

aww he is soooo cutee!

mama57 on

I saw that stroller at the Burberry store in south coast plaza over a mth ago.

Kate on

I agree with Ally, he looks so much like his grandma. He’s a beautiful baby!

Christi on

He is the spitting image of his grandmother–

He looks just like Solange’s mother

nik on

Beyonce looks really..uncomfortable. Solange is so pretty, she looks great! Baby’s adorable.

Keedee on

Can’t find any info on a split from her husband (Solange). The baby looks just like Beyonce and her mom to me…not very much like Solange, who didn’t quite get the stunning looks but is still relatively attractive.

I read the stroller Burberry)was a shower gift. Nice!

annie on

I think his eyes and skin color are gorgeous! He’ll be a heart breaker :)

arlene on

Hes to cute I love this eyes..
I notice that Solange isn’t wearing a ring but I haven’t heard anything about them breaking up if the did thats sad :( but that is what happens sometimes when you get married just because u are with child.

Precious on

Daniel is a cuddle bug.. I think he looks like his grandmother. They look like a real happy family. Daniel you are a cutie pie

That is not the definition of Creole. Not even close. If anything, the label originally referred to class, but it in no way seperated lighter skin from darker. There were many other terms that did that (mulatto, quadroon). In fact, in its original usage it excluded anyone of African descent and only referred to people of Spanish or French blood living in the area in and around New Orleans. By the end of the 18th Century, however, the term began to mean anyone from any race with Spanish or French or African heritage. Now it is more of a culture and has little, if anything, to do with race or ethnicity. Therefore, a white person or a black person could both be Creole. Any American living in the South has as good a chance at having a mixed racial heritage as any “Creole.” And someone needs to tell Mrs. Knowles that culture doesn’t equal race or ethnicity.

CREOLE DEFINITION
Creoles are generally known as a people of mixed French, African, Spanish, and Native American ancestry, most of who reside in or have familial ties to Louisiana. Research has shown many other ethnicities have contributed to this culture including, but not limited to, Chinese, Russian, German, and Italian.

This culture began as an offspring of the Old World and the New when this country was still being colonized. Creoles are not one thing or the other, and have lived their lives being misunderstood, misrepresented, and misinterpreted. In the past, under White government, Creoles were not allowed to be an equal part of society. Blacks, free and slaves, did not feel Creoles were part of their world either. Because of this rejection, Creoles had a strong bond with one another and had to create their own world and culture. They were self-sufficient and relied on each other. Creoles were landowners, artists, teachers, and business people.

This is not a Race blog.This is a Celebrity baby blog,so who cares about all that creole talk.The editors did their best to avoid this and yet here we are.Most people only wanna comment on how cute Daniel is or how cool is stroller & clothes are.You plp always find some way to talk about race and skin color.

Sam on

He looks really tall for a 7 month old baby. Anyways,I’ve notice that in photos actors never really have a bodyguards with them, but most musicians usually have bodyguards with them. I wonder why that is?

Teleia on

Yes, he is cute. To me he really dosen’t look like solange,he looks more like Mrs.Tina & Beyonce & Daniel than any thing. But mainly he lookes like Mrs Tina.
Where did he get them eyes from?

colleen on

what a beautiful baby! those eyes!!!

malie on

he is soooooo cute………OMG what a cutie pie, the first time i say the pic i was like he looks exaclty like his grandma. I also think that he got his eyes from her too.

lateifah on

I personally think that the baby doesn’t look anything like Daniel(the dad) because although he is in the `soldier’ video that was in black and white, c’mon you can see he is he is dark (although fair skin) he is darker than Solange. But looking at Solange i match the both up and i am not a racist person in any way but i expected the baby to be a little darker.HE IS GORGEOUS. It may be that he has taken the complexion and genes of Solange’s mother but to me something is wrong.

Reading another article to do with Solange and Daniel it says their relationships is on the rocks(it could be a rumour, i can’t say)due to any circumstance.
I hope their relationship is ok, and wish Solange good luck with her career and Baby Daniel to stay CUTE like he is now.

Joan on

Congratulations to Solange, what a beautiful baby and you look AWESOME! Also, I feel the need to properly educate people what Creole heritage is, which I am proud of being!

Furthermore, before one should put information regarding what they think a topic is, as in this case, “Creole”, one MUST educate themself! Well, since, one was for whatever reason’s unable to educate themself, I will assist with properly educating! Thank You And God Bless!

Even today this bond among Creoles nationwide is strong. There is tremendous pride in knowing where they come from. The Creole Heritage Center is committed to the challenge of correcting the wrongs and misconceptions associated with this culture and will represent the Creoles in a true light. Their culture and heritage, rarely acknowledged in spite of its uniqueness, is worthy and deserving of attention and preservation; without it an important part of the American experience could be lost.

He’s definitely a cutie. I’ve been waiting to see upclose pictures of him and these are great. The complexion card doesn’t work so don’t play it. I and my son’s father are both very brownskinned (we’re black) and our son looks exactly like his father but has a much lighter complexion than both of us as do all of his brothers. Yes, genetics are a funny thing!

Monica on

He is very, very exotic-looking, I must say. He does resemble his grandma. I wonder what a Beyonce/Jay-Z baby would look like.

airakah on

I THINK THE BABY FAVORS ALL OF THEM…AND TO THE PERSON WHO SAID SOLANGE DIDNT GET THE STUNNING LOOKS..YES SHE DID…IF SHE HAD THE MAKEUP AND CLOTHES AND HAIR LIKE BEYONCE SHE WOULD LOOK STUNNING TOO..THEY FAVOR ALOT AND BEYONCE DOESNT LOOK STUNNING WHEN SHE IS DRESSED DOWN SHE LOOKS LIKE A NORMAL PRETTY PERSON WALKING THE STREETS..MAKEUP DOES WONDERS…BUT ANYWAYS THE BABY IS BEAUTIFUL…AWWWW…

Jasmine on

I think the baby is cute too, and FYI most black kids are born light and will darken later on to their true color, since he’s only 7months old.I also think she broke up with the father because she’s never seen with him and doesn’t wear a ring.

chocolate delite on

this baby is soooo beautiful!!!!!!!!

Tina on

Why does the ethnic background question come up every time there is a light skinned black person? Yes the baby is cute but most babies are. 2 dark skinned black people can have a light skinned baby. We African -Americans are so mixed up we never know how our baby is going to look. DNA is a funny thing. Someone said that he had great skin. Why, because he is light? If it was a black person who made this comment, shame on you! That is slave mentality. Light isn’t always right. If it was someone of another race, please don’t make comments like this. It is very ignorant. Yes, the baby is cute but it’s not because he resembles a Caucasian baby. We have a long way to go.

Shaniece on

O MY GOSH!Solange slit up with her husband.If i were her i wouldn’t have done that because now the baby has a hole in his hart were his dad should be.Her husband lookes soooooooooooooooo good.Beyonce is worken those heels(in a good way.)Beyonce and Solange look just alike.Daniel looks just like both of them.That would be so cool if i could spend a day with them it would b so much fun!!!!!!
