Ebony Hosts Champagne Toast In Honor Of July Cover Star Tina Knowles Lawson

Beyoncé‘s mom, Tina Knowles, sewed her way into the national spotlight by designing signature show outfits for the greatest girl group of our time — Destiny’s Child.

Those matching cowboy costumes and lace and sequin dresses may look like a disaster in retrospect, but at the time, those threads were 1990’s gold.

The mama of slay went on to partner with daughter Beyoncé for their House of Deréon clothing line, and you can’t consider yourself a Black millennial unless you owned something from that collection.

Even though the line has since folded, the seamstress has gone on to totally revamp her life at the age of 62.

After marrying her boo, Richard Lawson, Tina joined Instagram, giving us an exclusive peek into her life.

And by the looks of it — it’s The Other Side of Fifty lit.

Here are a couple reasons why Tina is everyone’s Black mama on the ‘gram:

1.She Loves Her Grand-Kids And Uses Out-Of-Date Slang

In this post, Tina poses with her grandson Julian after a swim. She didn’t win their race and was feeling pretty “salty” about it:

2. She Uses Corny Jokes That Are Kind Of Funny

You know when your mama makes a joke and it’s not really funny, but because she thinks it’s funny that makes it funny? That’s how this video goes:

3. She Posts Private Video Her Daughter Sent Her To Social Media

You know when you send something to your mom intended just for your mom, but then suddenly you log on and see your aunt, uncle, and everybody else commenting on it because your mom took the liberty to go ahead and post it? Well, Tina did just that. Beyoncé sent her mom this video of her using FaceSwap and her mom was so tickled she had to share:

4. She Looks Amazing

All we can say about this is, Black never cracks:

5. She Loves Posting Old Pictures Of Her Kids

This is Solange’s 3rd birthday party:

6. Speaking Of Kids, No Matter How Old They Get, They Are Still Her Babies
