Beyonce is most likely spending her first Mother’s Day with her mom, Tina Knowles, plus new daughter Blue Ivy and her sister Solange, who’s a mother herself. The R&B queen penned a heartfelt letter to her mom, which can be read on her official website.

In the note, Bey sings the praises of her mama and thanks her for unconditional love and support.

Everything I am is because of you! You are the first voice that ever sang to me. At every turn you push me to be better. You teach me to be true to myself and the ones I love. When I look into your eyes, I am sooo proud. Now that I’m a mother, I truly realize all the sacrifices you made for us. My love for you goes beyond what I can say. Happy Happy Mama’s Day.

Love Beyonce

The letter is very touching and we’re sure that some of her gratitude is also shared by her sister, Solange, who is a doting mom of seven-year-old son Daniel Julez Smith, Jr.

Tina did reveal to Us Weekly that she and her daughters would be together celebrating Mother’s Day at home. “[We're] all going to be together,” she said. “We’re excited because it’s Beyonce’s first Mother’s Day. I’m hoping to cook! I want to cook. My traditional soul food and maybe gumbo. That’s my favorite dish!”

Food, family and conversation. That sounds good to us. Happy Mother’s Day!
