Beyonce and Jay-Z have something more important to focus on this year than awards.  The new parents recently skipped the Grammy Awards to indulge in a quick pizza date before heading home to baby daughter Blue Ivy, according to  A witness said the superstar duo “were just like a regular couple talking and whatnot” while having dinner at their favorite pizza place in Brooklyn.  “They were sitting in front of the place closer to where they make the pizza.”

What are some ways to keep romance intact after you have a child?

Cupid’s Advice:

Having children is typically a joyful experience, but there’s no doubt that romance in your relationship takes a hit as a result.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Date night: You may not have had a specific night in the week where you always went on a date before you had a child.  Now, however, it’s necessary to schedule your alone time.  That way you can coordinate a babysitter ahead of time.

2. Post-bedtime hangout: Although it may not seem like it at first, your child will eventually learn to sleep through the night.  When that happens, their bedtime will probably be before you and your significant other’s.  Take the time after your son or daughter goes to bed to reconnect as a couple.

3. Mini-vacations: It’s understandable that you’d be hesitant to leave your child behind on a trip, but sometimes you need a couple days to unwind.  Leave your kid(s) with their grandparents or your siblings.  Even if it’s just a weekend getaway, it’s important to spend some quality time alone every once in a while.
