Mathew Knowles has recalled being overwhelmed with emotion when watching his daughter Beyonce performing at Barack Obama's Inauguration in January, and admits he was moved to tears.

The music executive was fired as Beyonce's manager in 2011 and their business separation features heavily in the singer's recent HBO documentary, 'Life Is But A Dream'. The pair have evidently mended their strained relationship as Mathew has praised his daughter as an “incredible talent” while also talking about her strengths as a mother to daughter Blue Ivy.

Speaking about Beyonce's performance of the National Anthem at the Inauguration last month, Mathew told The Showbiz Countdown: “When I see her perform, I am so proud. It reminds me of when she was a kid. I know all of her dreams have come true. It makes me so proud to see her - an incredible talent.”

“I can tell that special thing when Beyonce's really happy. It's a certain way she dances, it's a certain smile that she has. And I saw that (at the inauguration). It brought tears to my eyes,” Mathew explained.

Mathew goes on to discuss Beyonce's new role as a mother to one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, saying: “I'm proud to see her as a mother. I know this was something very important to her and to see her hold Blue Ivy - that's something very special.”

“I have a picture that no one else will ever get to see of her holding Blue Ivy. You can see the joy in her face,” he added.
