Beyoncé’s mom is celebrating love the second time around, and her new marriage proves that romance is totally ageless.
Tina Knowles, who split from Beyoncé’s dad Mathew in 2009 after 30 years together, wed actor Richard Lawson last week and she said that finding love again at this stage of life was a beautiful surprise.
“To walk down the aisle and see all my friends and family and to see my handsome man standin’ there, and to know that at 61 you can still find love and have a magical day like that… it was really beautiful,” she told People magazine, who published some exclusive pics of the special day.
“There was a time when I doubted if I would find love again,” she said. “But I was determined to be happy.”
Knowles and Lawson have known each other for three decades but only began a romantic relationship in 2013 — and within just four months, Knowles said, she knew “this is somebody that I could really spend the rest of my life with.”
And as far as that ticking clock goes, age ain’t nothing but a number.
“It was important to me to have a wedding and walk in white, because sometimes we feel that at a certain age you should act a certain way,” she said. “You can find love at any age. You just have to go for it.”
There is hope for us all. Congrats to the happy couple!
