Congrats are in order for Mathew Knowles. Beyonce‘s father married his model girlfriend Gena Charmaine Avery on June 30 in Houston. The couple had been engaged for a year-and-a-half.

According to TMZ, Knowles’ famous daughters, Beyonce and Solange, were not in attendance to see their dad remarry for the second time. “Unfortunately, Beyonce and Solange had previous engagements which made it impossible for them to attend,” a source told the gossip website.

The 61-year-old Knowles, who currently runs Music World Entertainment, managed Queen Bey’s career until the R&B diva fired him in March 2011.

“I’ve only parted ways with my father on a business level. He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me,” said Beyonce in a statement.

Knowles’ divorced Beyonce’s mother, Tina, in 2011 after 31 years of marriage.
