Beyonce’s Mom Tina Knowles Marries Actor Richard Lawson!
Congratulations are in order for the woman who gave the world both Beyonce and her equally artistic sister Solange. Ms Tina Knowles is officially a married woman again, after tying the knot to her actor boyfriend, 67-year-old Richard Lawson, on Sunday, April 12.
According to TMZ, the all-white affair went down on a huge yacht (with the capacity to hold 300 guests!) cruising around the harbor in Newport Beach, California.

In attendance were of course Tina’s daughters, Beyonce and Solange, in addition to the ladies’ husbands Jay Z and Alan Ferguson (respectively), their kiddos, as well as other relatives and close family friends.
Tina and Bey both showed up to check out the boat at around noon yesterday, and left together before returning for the ceremony.
The 61-year-old mom of two divorced her husband, Matthew Knowles, back in December 2011 amid news of his cheating and extramarital children. Richard, who starred in shows like All My Children and Sister, Sister, had been dating Tina for quite some time — and was even the hot mom’s date at her star-studded New Orleans 60th birthday bash.
With this union, the Knowles sisters have gained a stepdad, whose daughter, actress Bianca Lawson, who some may remember from such flicks as Save the Last Dance, as well as shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Vampire Diaries, and Sister, Sister.
Congrats to Tina and Richard!
