We all know “that mom” … she’s fun and cool, she always looks so put together, her kids are awesome, and she brings the good wine when she comes over. How in the hell does she do it?
In honor of last night’s Grammy Awards and her show-stopping performance, let’s take a moment to celebrate one of our hall-of-fame celebrity mom crushes: the one, the only, Queen Bey.
Here’s just a few of the reasons why we’re #momcrushing on Beyonce:
She gives us pregnancy announcement goals.
In 2011, she announced her pregnancy with Blue Ivy during her flawless VMA performance. Just last week, she broke the internet by sharing the news that Blue was going to be a big sister to two new bey-bies in the best Insta post ever.
Every mommy-daughter twinning moment.
One of the best parts about being a girl mom is coordinating with your mini-me. And no one does it better than Bey and Blue.
Her family Halloween costumes.
I love a good theme, and I damn sure love a coordinated family costume. The Carters raise the bar each year.
She’s an inspiration to working moms everywhere.
Bey has proved over and over again that motherhood doesn’t have to slow you down or hold you back from who you are as a woman.
She is redefining feminism.
She gave us the flawless definition of the word in her song, well, Flawless. And we are forever grateful.
She shatters glass ceilings. Constantly.
Just a *few* of her professional accomplishments:
- being one of the best-selling artists of all time
- receiving more nominations than any other woman in Grammy’s history (62 total noms) and the woman with the second most Grammy Awards (20 total)
- being the highest paid black musician in history
- Forbes’ most powerful female in entertainment (2015)
In spite of all this, she says, “Out of everything I’ve accomplished, my proudest moment hands-down was when I gave birth to my daughter Blue.”
