Beyoncé recently gave birth to the world's most anticipated set of twins, and has understandably been staying out of the spotlight. But that didn't stop her from accepting a BET Award on Sunday night...kind of.
The singer made her first statement since the birth of her twins—via R&B duo Chloe x Halle, who accepted the Viewer's Choice award on her behalf, and read a quick note written by Queen Bey herself.
"Thank you BET for this award and your tremendous support of Lemonade," Bey said. "This has been a journey of love, of celebrating our culture, honoring the past, and approaching the present and future with hope and resolve."
The icon then went on to thank her family: "Thank you to my mother Tina Knowles-Lawson for being my biggest, biggest teacher, and consistent influence. Thank you to my entire family for so much love. To my team at Parkwood, thank you. And thanks to all the fans, my Beyhive, for riding with me. I love and appreciate you. And to everyone at the show tonight, you all look so beautiful. And at home, thank you, and have a wonderful, wonderful night. From, Beyoncé."
