Beyonce is paying tribute to mother Tina Knowles on her special day. 

The 38-year-old megastar took to Instagram to wish her biggest supporter and 'Queen' a happy 67th birthday as she shared a stunning throwback snap of Tina. 

Proving that the apple doesn't fall from the tree, Knowles was a sight for sore eyes in an adventurous leopard jumpsuit as Beyonce gushed, 'You are my inspiration.'

A businesswoman in her own right, who boasts a few fashion brands including House of Deréon, Knowles looked every bit the powerhouse in the glammed up photo. 

Laying on the couch in the show-stopping outfit with bright red lips Beyonce marveled at her gorgeous mother, and grandmother to her three children with Jay-Z, Blue Ivy, eight, and twins Rumi and Sir, three. 

'Happy birthday to my beloved matriarch! You are my Queen, my heart, my strength, the bone in my spine.'

'You are my inspiration. I hope you have everything in your life that your soul desires. Mama, I love you deep deep!'

Mom to Beyonce and 34-year-old Solange, Tina has been involved in both her daughters' music careers from the get go.

Solange also wished her mom a joyous day as she wrote, 'happy birthday mama you're a legend,' with some older photos on her Instagram story. 

Married to longtime Destiny's Child manager Matthew Knowles - until they split in 2009 - Tina has been by Beyonce's side and helped foster her career, as well as served as a mother figure to others in her orbit.

Kelly Rowland, 39, who has been with Beyonce since the start of their career in the hit nineties girl group (which was formerly known as Girl's Tyme) also celebrated 'Mama T,' as she posted some photos throughout the years.

'HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MAMA T! I'm quite territorial over this one and love her with all of me! She is literally one of my heroes and has inspired me in every area of my life! I love you Ma and THANK GOD for you!,' she wrote.

Kelly, who lost her mother Doris Rowland Garrison in 2014 has leaned on Tina for guidance, with Knowles even treating her like a daughter.  

On Mother's Day Tina paid tribute to Kelly as she wrote:  

'Happy Mother’s day to my Bonus , God’s Gift , my road dawg . Happy Mother’s Day to a phenomenal mom!!! My huge extra blessings !! Me and Doris did that!!! Happy Mothers day Doris RIH Thanks for sharing Kelly with me.'

Proving just how instrumental she is in her daughters' lives, Tina revealed in September on the In My Head with Heather Thomson podcast that 'Beyonce' is actually her maiden name.

'A lot of people don't know that Beyoncé is my last name. It's my maiden name.' 

'My name was Celestine Beyoncé, which at that time was not a cool thing to have that weird name,' she said. 

Now practically the most famous one word moniker in the entire world, Beyonce has assumed the role all thanks to her mother.

Additionally she has found wild success with her clothing line Ivy Park since its release in 2016, and has even had Tina model it.  

Though her dad was her manager for the majority of her career until she fired him in 2011 - amid reports he had stolen money from her tour - she still has a close relationship with both parents despite their business differences. 

'I grew up watching both he and my mother [Tina Knowles] manage and own their own businesses. They were hard-working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps,' she said in a statement at the time. 

When Tina and Matthew's divorce was finalized in 2011, she went on to date and now marry Poltergeist actor Richard Lawson, and has taken his surname.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
