Beyonce and Jay-Z are ‘great parents’

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are “great parents”, according to actor Fred Savage, whose children go to the same school as their daughter Blue Ivy.

Jay Z and Beyonce leave a movie theatre in NYC.

The 43-year-old star’s children — Oliver, 13, Lily, 11, and August, 6, whom he has with wife Jennifer Lynn Stone — go to the same school as the musical couple’s eldest daughter Blue Ivy, seven.

Fred has applauded the pair for being “active” parents, who take part in all the school events.

“All the kids at the end of the year do this big Olympics thing, and [Beyoncé and Jay-Z] are out there having picnics.”

He said: “Beyoncé and Jay are great parents, they’re active parents, they’re at school. All the kids at the end of the year do this big Olympics thing, and [Beyoncé and Jay-Z] are out there having picnics, sitting on the field with a blanket. They’re great parents.”

Fred previously acted alongside the ‘Spirit’ singer, 37, in Austin Powers in Goldmember, but said that despite the connection, he was still nervous to approach the star on the school playground.

He added: “It took me a while to go up to her ’cause it’s like… ‘What do I talk to Beyoncé about?’ So it took me a minute, and at one point I was like, ‘Hey, I’m Fred, we did this movie together. And she goes, ‘I know who you are. I saw you at the beginning of the year, I just didn’t want to come up and say hi and bother you.’ I’m like, ‘Beyoncé, bother away!’ I’m like, ‘Well, let’s clear the air. You can bother me whenever you want.’ She’s great.”
