Beyonce pays tribute to Tina Knowles in open Mother's Day letter

Beyonce has paid tribute to Tina Knowles in an open Mother’s Day letter posted on her website.

The 30-year-old, who recently revealed her admiration for First Lady Michelle Obama in a similar message on her official homepage, praised her mother for the encouragement and support she’s given her throughout her career in the short statement:

She said: “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 Mamas Day. Love, Beyonce.”

Tina had earlier spoken to US Weekly about her daughter’s preparations for her first Mother’s Day as a parent following the birth of Blue Ivy Carter in January.

She said: ''[We're] all going to be together. 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!''
