“38 years ago today you came into my life and I know without a shred of doubt that God sent you!!!” Knowles-Lawson wrote of Beyoncé, before revealing that she had just lost her mother before the pop star was born.

“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).”
