We’re loving how love looks on Mathew Knowles! Since marrying his second wife, Gena Charmaine Avery in 2013, we haven’t seen much of the new Mrs. Knowles, but all that changed over the weekend! The 66-year-old father of two of music’s biggest stars showed off his lovely wife on Instagram.
Knowles has been on the speaker’s circuit promoting his new book, Racism: From The Eyes of a Child. In it he talks about dealing with colorism growing up, even revealing he initially started dating his ex-wifeTina Lawson because he thought she was white.
“When I was growing up, my mother used to say, ‘Don’t ever bring no nappy-head black girl to my house,’” Knowles said. “In the deep South in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, the shade of your blackness was considered important. So I, unfortunately, grew up hearing that message.”
