Fans got a glimpse of the Carters' family dynamic in her 2019 documentary special, Beyoncé Presents: Making The Gift. The ABC special, which followed Bey behind the scenes through the making of her album The Lion King: The Gift, opened with a shot of the pop star and JAY-Z reading to their three children during a trip to Africa.
