Despite being in the middle of a world health pandemic, we all need to show those we care about a little love and Beyonce has hit the top spot with her tribute to her beloved mom Tina Knowles.

The singer-songwriter took to Instagram to pay homage to her to mark her 67th birthday. But in order to send her heartfelt wishes, the star uploaded a throwback snap of her mother from her younger days and it's giving us all the feel-good feels.

Beyonce uploaded the snap and captioned it: "Happy birthday to my beloved matriarch! You are my Queen, my heart, my strength, the bone in my spine. You are my inspiration. I hope you have everything in your life that your soul desires. Mama, I love you deep deep!"

And fans have gone wild for the dedication. One fan wrote: "Yes mama Tina you are everything!!! Beyoncé giving captions y’all.... but it’s mama Tina so of course lol." Another fan put: "QUEEN THAT BIRTHED A QUEEN! Wow" and a third fan added, "She’s BEAUTIFUL."

Tina Knowles is mom to Beyonce, 39, and her sister Solange, 34, and up until 2011 she was married to their father Matthew Knowles.

And the throwback snap highlights where gets her beautiful genes from, as fans are in awe of her stunning mom as she is pictured laying on the couch in a show-stopping leopard print outfit wearing bright red lipstick.

And Beyonce took the opportunity to marvel at her gorgeous mother, and grandmother to her three children with Jay-Z, Blue Ivy, eight, and twins Rumi and Sir, three. 

But Tina is a busy working mom and grandmother - she boasts a few fashion brands including House of Deréon. And she took to Instagram to update fans on her day with a sweet Instagram live to declare she had "one of the best birthday's I have even had."

She started her birthday a few days early and gave thanks to fans for their messages which she said "made me feel so loved" and added, "It just helped to make my birthday even better."

Tina explained how she'd enjoyed dinner on the beach at Santa Monica before watching the sunset. 

Solange also wished her mom a joyous day as she wrote: "Happy birthday mama you're a legend," with some older photos on her Instagram story.
