On Thursday, two days after her 37th birthday, the “Flawless” singer shared a note on Instagram reflecting on the past year. “At 36, I became a new mother of 3,” she wrote referencing the twins Rumi and Sir and her first-born Blue Ivy. “I breastfed twins. I renewed my vows with my husband of ten years.”
Bey and Jay celebrated a decade together on April 4, but rumors of the vow renewal didn’t start until they kicked off their On the Run II World Tour. During a show on June 6 in Cardiff, Wales, while the couple performed “Forever Young,” a video montage played behind them showing off shots of Beyoncé’s pregnancy as well as video from the confirmed vow renewal. The video showed the Everything Is Love artists at what looked to be an altar, surrounded by family, all dressed in white. The bride actually wore a stunning off-the-shoulder wedding dress, inspired by Queen Victoria's, by Galia Lahav.
The Thelma gown featured blush Chantilly lace, illusion tulle sleeves, and Swarovski crystals and pearls decorating the bodice. According to Metro, the dress cost $12,143.
Beyoncé’s post went on to to talk about her recent career milestones. “I came back home to the stage to do Coachella, after pregnancy,” she said under the picture of her cutting a birthday cake. “Then my husband and I released our album together, Everything Is Love. And we’ve been touring with our family around the world, and loving it. This year has been monumental for me. I thank God for everyone in my life. Thank you for all the positivity and for the beautiful birthday wishes. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn from my past, living in the present, and surrendering to the future.
I love you, Hive. B”
The message was also shared on Beyoncé’s website as a post titled “B At 36.” In addition to the note, the singer released never-before-seen photos from the last year, including shots of herself, family and friends, and the current tour.
This couple is notorious for keeping their personal lives very private. Fans didn’t get to see any photos from their first wedding in 2008 until the first On The Run Tour in 2014. Hopefully Bey's confirmation of their vow renewal means more exciting information is on the way!
