Tina Knowles has Blue Ivy to thank for her recent walk down the aisle.

Mama Tina tells People, the 3-year-old is the reason she started to chat about marrying actor Richard Lawson.

“[In September] we went on a boat with Beyoncé and Jay-Z for her birthday, and when we came out one night dressed to go to dinner, Blue said, ‘Oh, ya’ll look beautiful. When are ya’ll getting married?’ Mama Tina, said exclusively to ‘People.’

Richard said, ‘Oh, Blue, soon. Do you approve?’ And she said yes,” the recent bride says. “That’s the first time we talked seriously about getting married.”

Yes, Blue! We can totes see her looking at Richard with her sass and baby afro puffs!

The couple met 33 years ago but only re-connected a little over a year after Mama Tina finalized her divorce from Matthew Knowles in 2001.

Miss Tina says she knew he was the one when he doted on her after her surgery.

“I wasn’t very comfortable with it because I was like, ‘This is not the way to start a relationship off. It’s not very romantic,'” Tina recalls. “But he just proved to me that he was there, that he was really in my corner, and he took such good care of me, and he was so patient.
