Uploaded to his Twitter account Monday (Sept. 4), Mr. Knowles seemed reflective as he filmed the Houston skyline while wishing his eldest daughter a blessed earthstrong. “I can remember the day you were born,” he said. “I was actually in the room. This is your city, your city loves you. More importantly, I love you. I love you with all my heart. I’m so proud of you. I just wanted to tell you happy birthday.”

Knowles wasn’t apart of the girl-power driven photo homage to the singer which included his granddaughter Blue Ivy, former First Lady Michelle Obama, ex-wife Tina Lawson, Kelly Rowland, Angie Beyince, Serena Williams and Bey’s stepsister and actress Bianca Lawson. Bey’s husband JAY-Z also got the crowd at the Made In America music festival on Sunday (Sept. 3) to wish the entertainer and humanitarian a happy birthday.
In addition to his daughters Bey and Solange, Knowles also has a 7-year-old son with actress Alexsandra Wright and a daughter with former model Taqoya Branscomb.
