Jay-Z revealed that he learned how to swim in adulthood after he and Beyoncé welcomed daughter Blue Ivy in 2012.

During a recent episode of The Shop: Uninterrupted, co-hosted by NBA star LeBron James and businessman Maverick Carter, the rapper reflected on raising 9-year-old Blue Ivy, along with 3-year-old twins Rumi and Sir.

“It’s amazing. It’s a very grounding thing,” said Jay-Z. “I didn’t learn how to swim until Blue was born,” drawing surprised reactions from guest stars rapper Bad Bunny and WNBA player Nneka Ogwumike.

“There goes everything you need to know,” he continued. “This is a metaphor for our relationship. If she ever fell in the water and I couldn’t get her, I couldn’t even fathom that
thought. I gotta learn how to swim. That’s it. That was the beginning of our relationship.”
