Tina Knowles had the sweetest reaction to her daughter Beyoncé's Grammy acceptance speech, which she gave after becoming the most decorated female performer in Grammy history.
When the "Lemonade" singer collected four Grammy wins on Sunday, pushing her total count to 28, she told the audience she had been working her "whole life, since 9 years old" to get to where she is.
As it turns out, the "Lion King" star's mother remembered her starting out at an even earlier age. Knowles took to her Instagram on Tuesday to say Beyoncé was working in the industry well before she turned 9.
"She said 'since she was 9 years old' Well I remember 7 years old," Knowles wrote on Instagram alongside a snippet of her daughter's emotional acceptance speech.
The proud mom continued to reveal just how hard her famous daughter worked to make her dreams come true.

"So much, blood, sweat and tears, intense training, vocal lessons, dance lessons, running and singing with your dad, every morning, missed parties and proms, hardly any playing outside," she wrote. "Total dedication and tremendous 100 Percent focus."
Saying Beyoncé made "so many sacrifices" to make it as an artist, Knowles noted, "You don’t have a career like this [without] huge sacrifices and pure dedication."
The 67-year-old also said Beyoncé's "fearless unapologetic statements in your music and performances and filmmaking have knocked down doors for others to be fearless and unapologetic as well."
"Well deserved baby," she praised. "You are truly a gracious Class act!!! I am so Proud not of just the 28 Grammys but for the incredible human being you have managed to stay."
