Beyoncé Knowles-Carter turns 37 on Tuesday, and her fans around the world are paying tribute to their Queen Bey.

Kicking off the well-wishes was Beyoncé's mother Tina Lawson, who shared a touching tribute on social media. She posted a photo of four-months-old Beyoncé on Instagram, professing her love for her eldest daughter.

"...the day that you and your sister entered this world were the two best days of my life, hands down !! It is a privilege to have carried you two in this body ❤️ Enjoy your B-Day !!! No one deserves it more !! I love you Mom," she wrote.

Messages of love continued pouring in with the hashtag Bey Day.
