Beyonce GQ Cover: Blue Ivy's Mum Strips Down To Mark Musical Comeback

Blue Ivy Carter turned one earlier this week, but that isn't the only reason to celebrate - her mum Beyonce is BACK and she's got a smoking GQ cover to prove it.

Bey marked the start of her big comeback with a sizzling shoot for the US men's mag.

And the mother-of-one is well and truly back in shape as she gears up to release new music.

She is set to officially launch it with a half-time performance at the Superbowl next month.

And after seeing this pic, we can't blimmin' wait. Welcome back, Bey!
