Tina Knowles celebrates Beyoncé’s 40th birthday on Instagram

It’s official: Beyoncé is 40.

In honor of Bey’s milestone birthday, her mom Tina Knowles shared a special tribute focused on all of the things she’s accomplished in four decades of life.

“Wow you reached every one of your goals and then some. You deserve it baby, and every other blessing that God has bestowed upon you,” Tina, 67, wrote in a lengthy caption on Instagram.

“You are the most honest, intelligent and creative person I know,” she added. “That Virgo mind is always 10 steps ahead. There is not a mean bone in your body and no bitterness in your heart!! (Sometimes that is mind-boggling).”

The video she shared for Bey’s birthday showed the singer listing all of the things she hoped to do by the age of 40 — side-by-side with a reel of her actually doing them.

“Before I hit the age of 40 I would love to have some children. I would love to direct,” the singer said in the video, originally from a 2011 interview with Access Hollywood.

In the clip, the “Lemonade” star also wished that her company would continue to grow and that she would be able to “develop deserving young talent,” and that whatever she’s doing, she hopes she’s happy — which, according to Tina, she is.

“Today I look at you and see true happiness,” she ended her tribute. “With an amazing man that loves you and children that adore you!!! Nothing or no one can mess with that kind of love and happiness! I Just want the world to know!!! ❤️”

Mom of three Beyoncé is credited as a director on several projects, including 2016’s visual album “Lemonade” and 2019’s “Homecoming,” a Netflix documentary about her being the first black woman to headline Coachella in 2018.

Her company, Parkwood Entertainment, has three artists signed to it, including Chloe x Halle and Sophie Beem. It is also the parent company of her highly successful athletic clothing line, Ivy Park, which launched in 2016.

It may perhaps also be worth noting that the “Crazy In Love” singer has a net worth of $440 million, according to Forbes, who listed Beyoncé at number 73 on their Self-Made Women list.
