Beyoncé is incredibly close to her family but notoriously private, so fans were more than happy when the award-winning singer shared a new picture with her loved ones at the start of the week. 

The Crazy in Love hitmaker took to Instagram to share a series of photos taken from her recent birthday party, marking her 42nd year. 

Among the pictures was a lovely shot of herself posing in between her mom, Tina Knowles, and dad, Matthew Knowles.

The proud parents were both kissing their firstborn on each cheek, as the superstar smiled. 

The picture was re-shared by her mom, who posed it alongside an almost identical snapshot that had originally been taken in 2018. 

"We re-enacted this photo from 2018 to celebrate our firstborn! Thankful to God that we can still be here and healthy to witness another Birthday," she wrote in the caption.

Beyoncé herself shared several more pictures from the birthday celebrations, including one of her and Jay-Z smiling by a show-stopping birthday cake, and another of her blowing out the candles on her cake while Jay-Z watched on clapping.

Speaking with People at the HollyRod 2023 DesignCare Gala in July, Tina, 69, was all praise for her granddaughter's skills after she became an official dancer on Beyoncé's tour. "Well, this is a heels family. You're trained early to walk in heels," she told the outlet. 

"But yeah, she's having the time of her life, and I couldn't be more proud of her because she really worked hard." 

She added: "She is 11 years old, and she had one week to prepare, and she's just getting better and better. So I'm the proud grandma, always." When asked whether her granddaughter's confidence had seen a boost since joining the tour, she joked: "Oh, to the sky, to the sky. Yes."
