We're wishing a very happy birthday to the queen's mother! Indeed, Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles, celebrated her 60th birthday at a star-studded costume bash over the weekend. So which celebs were lucky enough to get to attend?
Tina's masquerade-themed birthday party was held in New Orleans on January 11, according to TMZ. Tina and daughter Solange Knowles arrived at the bash on horse-drawn carriages behind a marching band.
Beyonce was also at the party but did not arrive via carriage, sadly. Instead, she slipped in through a side entrance.
Among the celebs in attendance whose last names aren't "Knowles" include Jay-Z, Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Hudson, and Monica.
Kris took to Instagram to post several photos from the shindig. "Happy Birthday Tina!!! Beautiful night @beyonce @iamjhud #magical," she captions the photo (at left) of herself squeezing into the front of a pic with Beyonce, Beyonce's mom, and J-Hud.
"Sooooo much fun last night ladies!!! @iamjhud @monicamylife #happybirthdayTina!!" Kris captions the pic at right of herself with Jennifer Hudson and Monica.
Tina and Beyonce's father, Matthew Knowles, finalized their divorce in December 2011. The past few months have been exciting ones for Beyonce, who secretly released her new album online in the middle of the night in December 2013. The album has sold like gangbusters.
We hope it was a great day, Tina! And we hope that someone saved us a piece of cake. Come to think of it, our motto is, "If you like it, then you should have put some ice cream on it."
