Well this just makes all of the details from Tina Knowles's glam yacht wedding that much better: Blue Ivy, apparently, is responsible for her and now-husband Richard Lawson's marriage. One day, as cool and casually as only Beyoncé and Jay Z's child could be, Blue said to her grandma: "When are y'all getting married?" the newlywed told People.

"[In September] we went on a boat with Beyoncé and Jay Z for her birthday, and when we came out one night dressed to go to dinner, Blue said, 'Oh, ya'll look beautiful. When are ya'll getting married?'" Tina explained.

After that adorable exclamation, Richard asked for Blue's approval. "Richard said, 'Oh, Blue, soon. Do you approve?' And she said yes," Tina adds. "That's the first time we talked seriously about getting married."

It was another sweet moment that helped their romantic relationship blossom after being friends for 33 years. According to Tina, Richard flew out to help nurse her to health after she had surgery four months into dating. "I wasn't very comfortable with it because I was like, 'This is not the way to start a relationship off. It's not very romantic,'" Tina recalls of that time. "But he just proved to me that he was there, that he was really in my corner, and he took such good care of me, and he was so patient. That's when I knew: This is something special."
