As a new dad, Jay-Z received some parenting advice from a guy who knows a thing or two about being the man of the house.
The White House, that is.
President Barack Obama, who has two daughters, Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, with wife and First Lady Michelle, offered Beyoncé’s husband some words of wisdom upon the birth of the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January.
“We talk about the same things I talk about with all my friends. We talk about the kids,” Obama tells Cleveland’s Z107.9. “I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyoncé out [with the baby] and not leaving it all to mom and the mother-in-law.”
