Proud Mama Tina Lawson Wishes Beyoncé a Happy Birthday: "We've Been the Best of Friends"

The Beyhive might be celebrating Beyoncé's 38th birthday, but no one's excitement holds a candle to the Queen Bey's own mother, Tina Lawson. On Sept. 4, Tina posted a heartwarming tribute to Bey with an adorable snapshot of the two cuddling. The 65-year-old mother of Beyoncé and Solange Knowles recalled learning she was pregnant with the "Spirit" singer nearly four decades ago and shared just how meaningful it was. "38 years ago today you came into my life and i know without a shred of doubt that God sent you!!!" Tina wrote. "I had recently lost my mom and never thought that i could feel that particular kind of love again but .7 months later i was pregnant with you (39 years ago people) The moment i saw you i knew that that was IT !!!! We've been the best of friends since then."

Tina went on to praise Bey as a daughter and mother of 7-year-old Blue Ivy and 2-year-old twins Rumi and Sir, adding, "You have brought me such Joy and pride and love and friendship!!! Your heart is as big as Texas!! You are one of the best moms ever! And I love you soo much ❤️❤️❤️🎂🎂🎂❤️❤️Have the best birthday EVER!!!! Mom." The mother-daughter duo certainly have a close relationship, and something tells us Bey — who also celebrated her birthday with friends and family at JAY-Z's Philadelphia Made in America music festival — feels just as thankful to have a supportive mom backing her up.
