Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s newborn daughter Blue Ivy is already charming all the right people, including her grandma.

“She’s doing great,” a beaming Tina Knowles told PEOPLE at the Runway to Win fundraising reception for Barack Obama in New York. “She’s beautiful.”

As for her duties as a doting grandma, Knowles calls them “amazing,” adding, “It’s the second best job I’ve ever had.”

Although her adoration for the new addition to her family was certainly instantaneous, Knowles is waiting to decide which parent little Blue resembles most.
