Beyonce and husband Jay-Z have been careful to keep their daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, under wraps and out of the public eye, but as GlobalGrind.com and numerous other websites report, an industrious photographer has snapped a photo showing the 7-month-old's face.

The picture -- taken earlier today (July 18) while Beyonce was out at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City -- gives the world its first look at Blue Ivy's adorable mug since February, when Jay and Bey released a photo to the press.

The little girl looks like a perfect mixture of Hova and Beyonce, and as much as we at The BoomBox respect the power couple's right to privacy, we're happy for a peek.
