As she rubbed shoulders with fellow A-listers, Laverne found herself overwhelmed when she managed to pose for photos alongside the Lemonade hitmaker, marking the first time the ladies had met.
“This finally happened. I was so beside myself with joy, wonderment and awe of the majestic that is the queen I forgot to hold in my stomach and give you face. But I met #QueenBey y’all. #Grammys”
Laverne captioned an Instagram shot of the pair, showing Beyonce, who is currently pregnant with twins, in her sparkling red Peter Dundas gown while the actress looked sexy in a custom Bryan Hearns leather dress.
Another photo of the epic moment. The Knowles Carter family is just everything. I MET THE QUEEN Y'ALL and her king, proud papa. Seeing him holding his daughter's hand walking her down the aisle at the #Grammys was everything. #surreal #DreamComeTrue My new show @doubtcbs premieres Wednesday at 10pm only #CBS #Doubt
Posting another picture on social media Laverne, 32, continued to gush about how “gracious” Beyonce was in standing to greet the star.
It seems this official introduction was a long time coming for both women, as Laverne has previously shared details of the gifts the Grammy award-winner has sent her in the past, despite having never met. In November (16) Beyonce sent the actress a card and flowers congratulating her on her rendition of Destiny’s Child track Lose My Breath on Lip Sync Battle, and back in 2014 Laverne couldn’t contain her excitement at receiving a Christmas card from the superstar.
