London: R&B star Beyonce Knowles` friend Liza Minnelli has reportedly offered to babysit her one-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.
The 65-year-old singer-actress has formed a strong friendship with the baby`s mother since it was announced she would appear in the remake of `A Star Is Born`, which originally stared Minnelli`s mother Judy Garland, reported Contactmusic.
"Liza`s been giving Beyonce tips for the film and they`ve become very close lately. Liza has also grown attached to Blue Ivy and offered to look after the little girl any time.
Beyonce politely told Liza she may take her up on the offer, although that`s unlikely to happen because she`s hired several nannies but hardly ever leaves her daughter`s side," a source said.
Minnelli has been showering Blue Ivy with gifts and Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z have been left astonished by her generosity.
"Generous Liza bought Blue Ivy a decorative solid gold bottle and a bunch of other presents that blew her parents away. Liza always wanted to adopt, but sadly that never happened so she lives vicariously through other people`s kids," the source added.
