Tina Lawson said that her granddaughter, Blue Ivy, encouraged her to marry Richard Lawson when she was three-years-old. According to The Jasmine BrandBeyoncé’s mom appeared on OWN’s Black Love docuseries and revealed that Blue Ivy questioned when she would be getting married. Lawson said, “And then, after that [her 60th birthday party], I went on boat with Beyoncé, Jay, and Blue and one night we came down and Blue said, ‘Oh y’all look beautiful. When are y’all getting married?’ I think she was about 3. Not that that made us do it but it made us start laughing about it and thinking about it.”

Richard also shared the steps he took to prepare to ask Tina to marry him. He said, “I called her children and I asked for her hand in marriage from them. I thought that that was important because I knew without that, based upon the fact that Tina lives for her children, it didn’t stand a chance, unless they were on board. And I was fortunate enough that they were completely on board and they were just over the top excited about it.”
