Solange Knowles celebrated her 30th birthday on Friday and one person who couldn’t have been happier to join in on the celebration was her mother Tina Knowles-Lawson.
A family-first woman who has never hesitated to support her daughters on public platforms whenever possible, Mama Tina has gained a massive social media following over the past year as she’s continued to give fans a glimpse into her home and family life through her Instagram account. In one of her most recent posts, the fab 2016 Essence Festival honoree shared a precious throwback pic of her daughters to celebrate Solange’s big day.
In the photo, a 3-year-old Solange is pictured holding up a pointed toe while sitting in a small splash pool with Beyoncé and a friend. Tina elaborated with a few fun details about the photo in the picture’s accompanying caption saying, “This is Solange’s 3rd birthday party, we created a huge bootleg water world with slip and slides and pools everywhere.”
This is Solange's 3rd birthday party, we created a huge bootleg water world with slip and slides and pools everywhere. She had a Micheal Jackson impersonater! She thought he was really Micheal, because he came in a limo! It was soo fun . Now my baby has turned Thirty ! This seems like yesterday😥 Happy Birthday my baby❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️. Look how she is already pointing the toe😄
Big sis Beyonce also paid tribute to Solo in honor of her dirty 30 with an IG post of her own.
Be sure to catch Tina Knowles-Lawson at this year’s Essence Festival as we honor her with our first-ever Inspiring Leadership Award on Sunday, July 3.
