From Jay-Z to Stevie Wonder: Celebs Who Write Songs For Their Kids

Jay-Z and Beyonce's daughter Blue Ivy Carter is only a couple days old and Jay-Z has already written a song about her. The song "Glory feat. B.I.C" cleverly uses the sounds of Blue Ivy's cries on the track while Jay-Z pours out his heart to his daughter. However, Jay-Z isn't the first proud parent to pen a track about their kid.

Billy Ray Cyrus: Did you know Miley Cyrus has a song dedicated to her? And no, it's not "Because I Got High" by Afroman. Her Dad wrote and dedicated the song, "Ready, Set, Don't Go" for Miley.

Stevie Wonder: I guess this was before my time, but I had no idea that Stevie Wonder's song "Isn't She Lovely" was written for his daughter Aisha. Now whenever couples use this song as their first dance song at their wedding, It's really creepy.

John Lennon: John Lennon wrote the track "Beautiful Boy" for his son Sean Lennon. Paul McCartney also wrote a song for John Lennon's other son Julian Lennon, I guess he felt John gave him the short end of the stick only writing a song for Sean.

Lenny Kravitz: Kravitz wrote the song "Flowers For Zoe" for his daughter Zoe Kravitz. It's a short little song about giving his daughter every possible thing she could possible want, including flowers, oceans, and even rainbows.

Rod Stewart: Rod Stewarts song, "Forever Young" (Not to be confused with Alphaville's "Forever Young" aka the song featured in every 80's movie ever) was written for his kids, Sean and Kimberley.

Radiohead: Radiohead wrote their song, "Sail To The Moon" for Thom Yorke's son Noah. Even though Noah is a pretty normal name, as far as celebrity children are concerned. Thom Yorke once said, "I named my son Noah for the same reason Chris Martin named his apple: we're asses."

Kelis: Kelis did more than just write songs about her milkshake. She wrote a song for her son Knight and appropriately titled it "Song For The Baby."
