Eric McCandless/CBSTina Knowles has Blue Ivy to thank — somewhat — for her recent marriage to Richard Lawson.
Beyonce‘s mother told People magazine that late last year, her granddaughter said the most adorable thing, which got her and her now-husband thinking.
“We went on a boat with Beyoncé and Jay Z for her birthday, and when we came out one night dressed to go to dinner, Blue said, ‘Oh, ya’ll look beautiful. When are ya’ll getting married?'” Knowles told the magazine. “Richard said, ‘Oh, Blue, soon. Do you approve?’ And she said yes.”
She continued, “That’s the first time we talked seriously about getting married.”
Knowles said she knew her new husband was “the one” after he helped her out when she was recovering from surgery.
“He just proved to me that he was there, that he was really in my corner, and he took such good care of me, and he was so patient,” she said.
