Beyoncé Knowles‘ mother, Tina Lawson, has released a throwback photograph of the singer wearing an old-fashioned bonnet as a baby.

In the Instagram post, Lawson shared two pictures side-by-side of herself and her eldest daughter as babies.

In the images, both Lawson and Beyoncé are wearing similar outfits, complete with quaint bonnets and frilly hems.

“Who is who?” Lawson asked in the caption, before stating that she should have made the picture of Beyoncé black and white to make the answer less obvious.

In the photograph of Beyoncé, the singer is captured sticking her tongue out at the camera.

“Tina your genes are potent!” one person commented underneath the post.

“She stole your whole face,” another said, remarking on the striking resemblance between Lawson and her daughter.

On Sunday 10 May, Beyoncé paid tribute to her mother on Instagram to mark Mother’s Day in the US.

The 38-year-old shared a portrait of Lawson, which was captioned: “Happy Mother’s Day. My Mama was a savage, got this s*** from Tina,” in reference to the lyrics to her remix of Megan Thee Stallion’s song “Savage”.

She also shared a message in which she thanked her mother “for giving me life” and “for expanding my consciousness”.

“I would not have been able to do any of what I’ve done in my life without your strength, your wisdom and your prayers,” Beyoncé wrote.

“My biggest goal in life is for my children to feel the love you make us all feel. I appreciate you and thank you with every ounce of admiration and respect.”
