Jay Z and Blue Ivy to share Super Bowl moment with Beyoncé

Beyonce and Jay Z at Obama's inauguration last month.

Beyoncé Knowles' family will be in New Orleans to cheer her on for her Super Bowl half time performance.

The 'Halo' hitmaker is set to perform at the event on Sunday and will be supported by her husband Jay-Z, sister Solange, mother Tina and daughter Blue Ivy.

A source told The Huffington Post: "This is a major moment in Beyonce's life. It's a once in a lifetime event and she wanted to share it with her family. They are an extremely close unit who spend a lot of time together. They have each other's backs."

Meanwhile, Beyonce will have a quiet night in tonight, even though her husband will be hosting a bash for his drinks brand D'Usse Cognac.

The insider explained: "She will be home resting making sure her voice is in top shape for her performance. When Madonna performed last year, she wasn't seen at any of the pre-Bowl events. Beyonce will not be different."

Beyonce, 31, previously revealed she can't wait until her performance is over so that she can spend time with her Jay-Z and their 12-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.

She explained: "I can't wait until it's all over, I'm gonna enjoy my daughter. I miss her so much and I keep saying 'mommy is so busy but I'll be done at 9pm on Sunday.'"
